Folk Music for all

Welcome to the Cross Keys Inn Folk Club

Built in 1745 in the heart of Saddleworth lies the 'Cross Keys Inn'. It is situated on the old Marsden Packhorse route and first opened as a Tavern in 1753. (Some believe that Jim was actually first at the bar on opening night!)

The Inn is host to one of the longest running Folk Clubs in the North West of England and is hosted by Jim Schofield. We meet every Wednesday evening in the much acclaimed "Buckley's Kitchen", a small intimate room with a stone flagged floor and a big, ancient cooking range. The club is regularly visited by artists from home and abroad who never fail to entertain. Why not come along for an evening of good music and entertainment, we are quite sure you will not be dissapointed.

To those who could not make it to the Cross Keys to see Keiran, well all I can say is you missed a cracking night out. Keiran sang some of the songs from his new CD 
'It's always 3.15 somewhere' and I can tell you from first hand experience that they were all superb. You can buy this online from Keiran's web site.

This week at the Cross Keys Folk Clup Uppermill we April 22nd we have Dogwood Rose back with us once again.
Dogwood Rose were formed a couple of years ago when fiddle player Kiri Smith joined guitarist/singers Judy Cliiford & Mike Richards, who had been playing folk clubs around the Sheffield area for some time. Since that time, they have been booked to play at several festivals and clubs outside the area. A highlight was the prestigious Stainsby Festival. The music of Gillian Welch, Tom Waits together with more traditional Americana and English folk are the main inspirations behind their music. The combination of Judy's beautiful voice, close harmonies and lively stage appearances has won them many fans. 

See you there as usual 8:30pm
