Folk Club

We run the Morris Folk Club on the last Tuesday of most months (excepting December and some other holiday months). Entry is free, and all are warmly welcome. 

Morris Folk Club runs 7.30pm-10.30pm-ish.

We are very pleased to say that Morris Folk Club will, for the foreseeable future, continue to be held upstairs at The Betsey Trotwood (56 Farringdon Road EC1R 3BL)!

Check Twitter and Facebook for information on what's happening this month, not least in case of cancellations or special themes, or sign up to the Morris emailing list.

Our Folk Club runs from 7.30pm till about 10.30pm, and generally follows an open, floor performers/singers night format. You can just listen, and sing along, if you like, or you can perform. Let the MC know if you'd like to sing or play something - it's typically up to one item per half, time permitting. It's always a very appreciative audience - and, if you're worried about that kind of thing (which you shouldn't be), a supportive and forgiving one too.

A unique part of Morris Folk Club is that it incorporates elements of 'open choir rehearsal', when anyone can get a taste of singing with the choir, as during the evening we all together learn a song or two or go over an old favourite. 

If you would like to get an idea of what kind of things get sung/played at Morris Folk Club, take a look at the 'setlists' page (which also, incidentally, fairly well reflects the typical male/female ratio of performers and audience members at our club).

Online folk club: We continued to run Morris Folk Club online through most of 2020 and 2021, which was a popular success, particularly as friends were able to attend who weren't usually able to. Though we have not carried on with these, there are a number of other online singarounds and folk clubs still running. We would direct you in particular to the Saturday Sea Songs singaround, now hosted by our friends at Folk London, which runs most Saturday evenings (and isn't exclusively sea songs...) - more information at that link, including email signup details.
