Braidwood Folk Music Club

The Braidwood Folk Music Club was formed over 19 years ago by a dedicated group of people with the aim of presenting and promoting folk music and the folk arts in the Braidwood district.


The club holds regular folk nights in the Anglican church hall and from time to time in other selected venues in Braidwood from 7pm. Most folk nights there is a guest artist with support by local singers and poets.


Please bring your own drinks.

Dan Walsh


  


  Nominated for best musician at last year's BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines 'virtuoso playing and winning songwriting' (MORNING STAR). Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves - all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.


New album 'Verging on the Perpendicular' is Walsh's fourth solo album and again has received much critical acclaim and is accompanied by a hectic touring schedule taking in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Both solo and as a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage with Imelda May, Joss Stone and the Levellers, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.  ("The real deal, a demon picker"  -  Uncut.)   ("Absolutely terrific"  -  Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2.)  "Eclectically inspired and consistently brillian"  -  Froots)
