In the Thistle Hotel, Milnathort

On 25th October The Club moved to a new home!
Thistle Hotel, Milnathort
The Hotel has a long history of folk singing and many will remember it from days gone by. The new owner Richard and his partner Susan have done a great deal to upgrade the interior but have aye been hankering for the return of folk music. The club will meet in the upstairs restaurant which is a swish and comfortable space with its own bar.

Mike Silver
Long heralded as a master craftsman of song writing, singing and performing, Mike Silver is one of the UK’s foremost roots and acoustic singer songwriters. His supremely confident and distinct guitar playing, along with his trademark rich, warm voice have made him one of the most popular artistes to grace the bill of the Glenfarg Folk Club.

Sing-around
St Andrews day is imminent, so sing a song about a saintly person, or connected to the meaning of Andrew... "brave", "courageous", "warrior", "strong". Perhaps a song relating to Andrew's profession - a fisherman, or a song about the colours of the Saltire, blue & white. Or simply something that celebrates Scotland or matters Scottish.

John Ward Trio
John Ward’s songwriting has been born from his life in a tough and gritty East Anglian fishing port that has seen more than its fair share of social change and decline. In 2014, Les Woodley (double bass and mandolin) and Lynne Ward (accordion and whistles) joined forces with John to bring a fuller sound to his moving and thought-provoking songs, which often capture the spirit of the times we live in. With powerful 3-part harmonies, John’s show-stopping bodhran playing and accomplished guitar work, the trio’s performances are authentic and from the heart and delight audiences across the UK.
