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.

What a smashing night that was, Michelle and Bonz and of course Dave Cope all perfomed fabulously to a packed house. Floor spots were taken up by Clive Gregson, Robin Whitehead (Good to see you Rob) Pete Butler and Marc. Well done to all, we all had a cracking night.

This week July 29th we have Alan Clarke. A fine vocalaist and a legendary musician. Alan has been a regular visitor to the Cross Keys over the past couple of years. He rarely misses a night and has become one of our keenest supporters for some time now. Alan often takes up floor spots but this week is his week. Come along and support him, I'm sure you will not be dissapointed.

See you there as usual 8:30

Coming Soon, 5th Aug Jez Low, 12th Aug Kenny Spiers.
