The Club meets on the penultimate Saturday of every month throughout the year (except August) at the Settle Social Club, Duke Street, Settle. Formal start at 8.30pm in the Concert room. Special occasions may start earlier and take on a different format to the normal Club nights. See the Calendar page for what's on & when!
Although Sally Wright sadly passed away in 2010, a nucleus of regular singers & musicians still form the core of the Club and these include Lizz Cook, Harvey Lomas, Alan Holmes, Dave Brown,.Andy Clayton, Stu Arnott, Paul Morris, Jeff Wright.& many more.
Harmony & Chorus singing is the norm but singer/songwriters are welcomed to perform self penned material as well as more traditional Folk music.
With the increase in Summer visitors, the Club sees more "passing trade" between Spring & Autumn, but Winter nights can be really cosy when the weather gets chilly outside and tourists are few on the ground.
There is a large car park behind the Social Club accessed from Station Road & Ashfield. The Club Committee kindly permits motorhomes etc. to put down overnight on Folk Club nights in the car park and this saves on fees in the public car parks elsewhere in the Town!
