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.

Waht a smashing night that was. Braunston Pilckle were every bit as good as we thought they would be, Well done Barbara and Lionel.

This week Wed 28th January we have our anual BURNS night It is always a very popular night at the Cross Keys. Start brushing up on your Scottish music and song, it's compulsory on the night. Any contributions of tasty snacks from the ladies are most earneastly welcome.

And for this year. It would be extremely nice if someone could find a volunteer Piper to pipe the Haggis in on the evening. This would be really nice, so please try, ask around and find a Piper.

There will be plenty of Haggis and neeps for all (Even two helpings for our Stanley) So come along and enjoy.

Don't be late.

See you there as usual 8:30pm
