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.

Wow! Bakerfield put on a great performance tonight to a comfortably packed audience in the Barn. A host of instruments kept us entertained. There was Harmonica, mandola and Guitar from Pete and Double Bass, Guitar, Banjo, Ukelele from Loraine. Both accomplished vocalists were superb. Loraine and Pete clearly are at one with their music. Not to be missed next time around.
This week July 30th we have a local duo from Royton who go by the name of Es & Chris Chorlton
They sing songs from the English and Irish tradition accompanied by Es on guitar and featuring distinctive harmonies from Chris. They also have a store of trade union songs from their years of activism in the labour movement and have been known to throw in the odd ageing hippie tune too.Don't miss out on what looks to be a good evening.
As usual, see you there 8:30 Pm.
