Information for artists. We value professional musicians and will always endeavour to strike a balnce between fair pay for musicians and affordable tickets for the audience.. Bookings are made on the basis of having seen or heard the performers play and feedback from our audience.. We can offer hospitality when required but regret we cannot provide hotel accommodation or fancy riders! We are a small Folk Club run monthly by enthusiasts and operate on a basis of an agreed fee or 80% of door after room hire and costs.

Information for floor singers: A folk club audience is different to many pub open mic audiences…….they listen to you and appreciate a good performance! We are what it says on the tin,,,,,a folk club, and we welcome acoustic music within the vast umbrella of folk, roots, blues and beyond! We try to give each performer 2 songs and it’s best to get in touch first to guarantee a slot, especially if you are travelling. We have a lot of people who want to perform and sometimes it’s difficult to fit everyone in, so please don’t be offended if we ask you to do just one tune or song.

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 generous expenses only]
