The Watford Folk Club: Fridays, 8 pm – 11 pm in the Colne River Room
The Watford Folk Club is the friendliest Folk Club in Watford. There has been a Folk Club at The Pump House since 1973 and the present club was founded in 2008 and is a run by a committee and willing volunteers, all of whom are passionate about Folk Music.
The Watford Folk Club has an enviable reputation for the quality and the quantity of its floor singers/players and for headlining new and established Folk performers.
We run “Guest Nights”, “Singarounds”, “Spotlight Singarounds” and “Songwriters Circles” On a Guest Night, a professional or semi-professional Folk/Acoustic performer will play two 40-minute sets and a number of Floor Spots are available. At Singarounds, chairs are arranged in a circle and anyone can sing a song or two or play a piece or two. People also come to the club just to listen to the high-quality music. There is never any obligation to perform! Spotlight Singarounds feature two 20-minute sets at a Singaround from local supporters of the club. Songwriters Circles feature three local songwriters, discussing what inspires their writing and their individual songwriting process, plus performances of their songs.
Admission is by suggested minimum and varies from £5 (at Singarounds & Spotlights) to £7-£15 (at Guest nights).
There is a real ale bar, great acoustics and a friendly welcome every week.
We’re really pleased with our lineup for this year, featuring not only major folk artists but also amazing local talent. Members of the club are active on the folk scene and can often be found performing at local and national festivals and events. We also play at fundraising events for charity.
