Free Folk Fridays

RoughDitchFolk and The Lounge Bar continue their series with the help of some well-known local folk musicians

There's nothing like a friendly folk night to start your weekend and The Lounge Bar will be hosting the monthly singaround on the third Friday of every month from 7.30pm to close.

RoughDitchFolk's Pete Stephens and Barbara Parry will be running the sessions and you're assured of a friendly welcome whether you're coming along to take part or just to have a listen over a relaxing drink from the bar.

Some people will be familiar with the singaround format, but, if you've never been to a participatory folk night before, it's really about sharing songs and tunes, poetry and folk tales, familiar or original, with the others who come along.

Some would argue that, without folk music, there would be no country, rhythm and blues or rock and roll! It attracts and is enjoyed by all ages.

Whether you're an instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, poet, storyteller or just a really good listener, why not join us on and see what it's all about?
