The Cheshire Folk Club

The Boars Head, Middlewich

First Sunday (monthly) from 8.00pm

Cheshire Folk Session and sing around has been going for about 15 years, started by Liz as Cheshire Folk Club at the Kings Lock in Middlewich, although we've moved around to a few different venues over the years, we are still to be found on the first Sunday of every month at the spiritual home for folk music in Middlewich, The Boars Head.

Bands and artists, singer songwriters and instrumentalists! Friends, singers and listeners absolutely welcome, all instruments welcome and always acoustic!

Generally run as a sing around, joining in is welcome but not expected, if you have a burning desire to stand up and perform your latest self-penned song or tune for our pleasure, we'll be delighted to listen or join in by invitation!

Everyone is welcome to sing along with the regulars or enjoy the music as audience. We start at 8pm usually in the back room where we enjoy the amazing acoustics! Please come and join the organiser and founder of Cheshire Folk, Liz Rosenfield, with club regulars, husband Sean Boyle, along with another member of our band Bitter and Twisted, (because quite frankly we are) much-esteemed singer and guitarist David Giles.

We are often joined by our friends from as far afield as Stoke, Manchester and Crewe, we are frequented by passing boaters, and several of our friends from Northwich Folk Club and Sandbach folk club who come along and share music and song.

No door fee or raffle money required, but donation pot on the door to cover whatever we fancy and sometimes it's cake! At the end of the evening, the much-coveted Cheshire Folk Cup will be given to a performer for doing something special on the night and who knows what that might be? We don't stand on ceremony, and we are always informal, we enjoy a chat and a banter as much as a song and a performance. Always acoustic and always a lot of fun.
