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.

I'm afraid I did not have the opportunity to see Dana & Susan Robinson this wee but I'm sure they were every bit as good as they always have beem. Maybe next time guys, meanwhile good luck with the tour.

Well now, it's that mid time of the year again where for the next two weeks 1st July & 8Th July we have Singers Nights. The first will be hosted by the ever lovely Heather McNeill follwed by Martin Stimpson on the 8th. So as per usual come along and bring a friend an instrument or a voice, better still bring all three, you know you're in for a good time. As usual 8:30pm.

Then, waaaait for it. We have Anthony John Clark back with us on the 15th July. More to follow.


Please contact George or Jim for further information.
