A warm and welcoming community formed around shared passion! Our activities support and promote folk and traditional music and arts in the Falkirk area. We run a busy events programme with popular session nights and superb visiting acts. Expect variety, expect fun, and expect to be entertained! – “… always a great night at Falkirk Folk Club!’
Our Club is an unincorporated association. We operate on an expressly ‘not-for-profit’ basis and membership is open to all who share our objectives. Whilst membership is encouraged, we also warmly welcome non-members to our events.
As well as established performers from the wide spectrum of the folk and traditional music scene, the club provides a platform for new and emerging talent with a strong commitment to encouraging local participation. This has aided the development of many fine musicians and songwriters from the area who ‘cut their teeth’ on the club stage and at session nights.
Our membership and supporters continue to work hard to develop and promote folk and traditional music throughout the Falkirk area. We host regular Sessions, Open Stage nights and Special Events which provide opportunities for budding musicians and songwriters to air their talents, gain performance experience and, most essentially, enjoy participation in the music! Our CarronCast Project has proved a particularly successful initiative in encouraging musical and performance development. Find out more about CarronCast by following the menu link at the top of this page.
The Club has a friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, making for a good night. We strive to showcase great quality from across the broad spectrum of folk music. Even when a visiting performer might not be your first choice in terms of style and musical material, the floor spots, heckling and the banter will all help to make sure that you still head home with a smile!
