PENZANCE FOLK CLUB
Penzance Folk Club was started at the Admiral Benbow pub in Penzance in early 2008 by Alan & Linda Collins, and continues to run successfully, with welcome help from a number of members and performers. Most evenings are Round the Room sessions where everyone has an opportunity to sing, play a tune or tell a story (there is no obligation to perform and audience are equally welcome). Although the club originated from a background of traditional music, most evenings have a welcome mix of music and song, often including contemporary song, American old timey, old music hall songs, blues and occasional items of classic pop! On the music side, as one might expect, there is an emphasis on Cornish tunes, and most of the tunes come with an invitation to all musicians to join in. When the tune is linked to a Cornish dance, it is not unusual for a few members to take to the (limited) floor space! Round the room sessions are free of charge, but we always run a raffle which raises funds to subsidise the guest nights held about 5 times a year - see website for guest dates.
