Folk Music for all

Cross Keys Folk Club - Uppermill

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.

Gutted! I missed out on Kieran Halpin last week. I was really looking forward to being there. I'm sure Keran was every bit as good as we have all come to expect of him. See you next time round my friend.

This week (April 16th) it's the turn of Martin Stimson. A leg end in his own time, Martin has been a strong supporter of the Cross Keys for many many years. Martin plays a mixed set of Instruments from Guitar to Mandola and from Dulcimer to some instruments that still don't have names. He plays them all with the skill of a practiced musician. We look forward to seeing Martin on Wedensday, come along early and ensure yourself a seat.Martin Stimson
