The Dunedin Folk Club
Bring an instrument, a friend or just yourself. All welcome.
The Dunedin Folk Club (formerly the New Edinburgh Folk Club, deriving its name from that of our fair city, Dunedin (the Scots Gaelic name for Edinburgh, founded in 1848 by Scottish immigrants) commenced in 1975 as a place where people interested in traditional and contemporary acoustic music could share their talents, skills and repertoire in a semi-formal and social forum. Today it remains a highly active club with weekly clubnights, two annual festivals and regular concerts, workshops, sessions and social activities. Although it is a `club´ in the sense that is an incorporated society, all our events are open to all-comers, audience and performers alike.
A typical clubnight is a semi-formal concert. The first half is usually made up of floor-spots (casual performers who turn up - make yourself known to the compere) with the second half a booked performer advertised here and in our weekly email newsletter.
You don't have to be a club member to attend any of our events, but being a member will usually get you discounts (usually a $5 discount). Membership is $25 for an individual or $40 for a family or household per year. Send an email to email@example.com with your contact details if you wish to join or just let us know at any club event.
