Welcome to folkcalendar.com. This is a free folk music and folk dance directory which aims to promote folk music and dance events primarily in the UK. The site came about because the developer – a performer with a ceilidh band and keen session goer – was unable to find an all encompassing resource for tune sessions and folk clubs when regularly travelling on business, hence the map based interface.
It is free to list events on folkcalendar.com and you can list single events (eg a single gig) or recurring events (eg folk sessions or folk clubs). You do not need an account to create an listing, but if you do create an account you will be able to manage and update your listings later. If an event is not managed by a user, you can also claim the event to manage it yourself.
We’re always looking for guest bloggers who may have something of interest to say about folk music or folk dance, be it an opinion piece, something of historical interest, something you want to say about your local morris side or just some tunes you’d like to share. Drop us a message if you’d like to write an article – full credits and links given, of course.
We hope you find this resource useful, please do send us any feedback or comments using the Feedback page. Happy Playing!
