Folk music is 'music which covers multiple genre music styles'. We vary the weekly concerts, giving variety for all age groups & music preferences.

The Folk club is an inclusive club made up of members, visitors & performers with a common appreciation and love of performing arts & music. Audiences are often prompted to participate throughout the concerts when appropriate. There is always the opportunity after concerts to interact with performers, discuss instrumental techniques & a great social way to get to know members & performers alike.

The Club supports local musicians & groups, as well as facilitating many International Performing Artists throughout the year, many of whom are launching CDs, or are renowned internationally for their particular chosen musical genre & expertise. We also facilitate occasional 'open mic' nights, allowing artists (both amateur & professional) to perform at the club, while being supported by a professional Sound Technician & sound equipment. This is a wonderful experience for amateur musicians to gain microphone experience, and an excellent opportunity to share their music with an appreciative audience.

Concerts consist of two 50 min performances, split by a 20 minute break. There is a small bar open for refreshments, Tea, Coffee & Cakes are available at half time. Toilets on site.

We have reduced rates for music students with ID cards.

Club membership is a minimal fee, and entitles members to a $5.00 reduced weekly door charge, a copy of the 'Hear-Ye' newsletter, which is mailed out regularly. (The Hear -Ye, informs you of the up-coming weekly concerts, the performers' music styles & backgrounds, entry fees, club activities, email reminders, and provides discount vouchers from Music Works).

The club is well established, and has been running in Christchurch for 50 years by a committee of volunteer members. Please speak to a committee member if you have any questions / concerns, if you think you might be interested in joining or becoming more involved in the club activities.

Please visit our Face Book Page ' Christchurch Folk Music Club' & 'LIKE' if you are wanting to receive weekly electronic reminders of up-coming concerts & musical events.
