First Sunday Folk Club, Hemingbrough
7.30pm in the upstairs function room at The Crown Inn
First Sunday of every month
First Sunday Folk Club at The Crown Inn, Hemingbrough is one of many great folk clubs in North Yorkshire providing a rich tradition of singers' and musicians' evenings that present a high standard of songs, music, and poetry from a wide range of sources. Several performers write and perform their own material, and the range of music covers traditional unaccompanied folk songs through to guitar and mandolin accompanied songs from all eras; 20th century hits, historically ancient songs, and songs that have recently been written. The uillean pipes come out on special occasions, and the D whistle, flute, recorders and bodhran can all be enjoyed leading the music, or enhancing the singing. All genres of music are performed at both clubs - anything goes as long as it is unplugged!
