CRIEFF FOLK CLUB 


Crieff Folk Club reached its first birthday in

September 2018. 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).

 

If you're keen to see regular folk events at Strathearn Arts, then come along and show

your support.  If you've never tried it, why not! Tickets £10 or £12 with discounts for

earlybird bookings more than one week in advance. BYOB.

 

Tickets are available online from Eventbrite and direct from Strathearn Arts.
