An essential part of the folk scene in the U.K, folk clubs and sessions continue to provide entertainment and give performers a vital opportunity to hone their skills in front of an audience.
In our Folk Club index, we have over two hundred folk clubs listed and we are always happy to add more when we find out about them.

Please support your local folk club and get in touch if you can suggest a club for our Folk Club Index.
