Bollington Folk Club
Welcome to the new Bollington Folk Club web site
(still accessible via www.bollyfolk.com)
Bollington Folk Club have started virtual folk nights on Fridays using the Zoom app. Invitations are currently given to those on the club's email list so if you want to be included go to Contact Us . For more information go to Virtual Folk Nights
Now that the Friday Virtual Folk Nights seem to be running reasonably successfully, we will go to the next stage and try a Virtual Guest Night. Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne has agreed to be our first guest on 11th December. Go to Cohen tickets which is a link to the Eventbrite site where you can make a donation (using a credit/debit card or Paypal) and then receive emails and reminders about how to access the Zoom event. (No set amount but this has been organised to be the first of a number of concerts to promote some of our best folk musicians) The event will be open from 7.00pm but try to join before 7.20pm at the latest to iron out any unforseen technical problems. Intros and support spots will begin at 7.30 pm. Cohen will be performing for about 70 minutes from 7.45 approximately. The end of the session will be used for more club singers to finish the evening as per a normal zoom singers night.
Guests lined this year :-
