Islington Folk Club

Forthcoming programme

Below is our programme for the summer 2018.

Date Artist  
17th May 2018 Informal session featuring The Angel Band Free entry
24th May 2018 Riggy Rackin "When Riggy pulls out his concertina, the room gets quiet, and people perk up and pay attention. Riggy looks authentic. He looks like one of those guys who sits in the back of the general store or the forecastle of a ship and spits tobacco juice on the floor, but people put up with him because he can sing. And sing he does." -- Joe Offer, Mudcat Cafe
31st May 2018 Peta Webb, Ken Hall & Simon Hindley Local legends perform mostly Americana, with voices, guitar, fiddle and kazoo. The Crouch End Nightingale, the Wigan Warbler and the Finchley ... er, Finch, will jerk your tears and evoke the spirit of The Hoosier Hot Shots to send you home with a smile on your face. (This blurb first used in 2015, so it's got a few years left in it yet.)
7th June 2018 David Rovics Songs of Social Significance. David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US.
For this night only at The Horatia, 100 Holloway Road, London, N7 8JE
