Club Nights are on the First Wednesday of each month upstairs at Roosters Brewery. Doors open at 7;00 for a 7:30pm start, Admission will be a minimum donation of £3 to cover room hire and costs. [Afraid we still use cash so make sure you have some spare change!] The evening is MC’d by Tom and performers are always very welcome. Please get in touch or see us when you arrive and we will add you to the list. We usually have spaces for up to twelve performers. The most important people of course are the audience and we will do our best to make sure you have a great evening of good local music in a friendly atmosphere!
Folk Concerts are mainly at Henshaws Arts Centre Knaresborough, HG5 9AL. Please support live music and buy tickets in advance from the Ticketsource link on our Tickets page.
Covid safety procedures: We will continue to ensure the space is ventilated and reasonably spaced out and ask that you continue to consider others as regulations are eased……we need to keep each other confident and safe as we start up again.
Spotlight features. In this area we are blessed with some great musicians and we often invite performers to showcase their talents at a half hour “Spotlight” session at a singers night or be a support act for our Guest Night Concerts. [For this we can offer expenses]
Information for artists. Bookings are made on the basis of having seen or heard the performers play. We are a small Folk Club run by enthusiasts and operate on a basis of an agreed fee or 80% of door after costs. We can offer hospitality when required but regret we cannot provide hotel accommodation or fancy riders! We are currently booked until the end of 2022 and are not taking any more bookings for the moment, though there may be some opportunities for support acts.
