CRIEFF FOLK CLUB 


Crieff Folk Club will reach its third birthday in

September 2020. Strictly speaking, it's much older

than that as Crieff had a well established Folk

Club running throughout the 60's, 70's and

80'swhich featured the likes of the Dubliners,

the Corries and Billy Connolly and Gerry

Rafferty's the Humblebums.

This new generation of Crieff Folk Club meets once a

month at Strathearn Arts on a Thursday night to hear

some great and varied folk music plus the occasional session

night for anyone to join in with (or just listen and enjoy).

We were recently given the opportunity to create a programme about the Folk Club for Sofa Fest, Crieff's first online music festival which showcased local music arts in Strathearn.
