Bampton Folk Club

Bampton Folk Club is an informal gathering of folkies learning, playing and singing anything that could be construed as folk music.  So whether it’s traditional English, Scottish, or Irish or seafaring or country dance tunes, contemporary offerings from the newer folk artists or real oldies…

…if it’s folk, it’s fair game!

We meet weekly, every Sunday between 7:00pm and 10:00pm in The Romany Inn (map) for a few of hours of playing (there’s no obligation to be there for the full three!) probably followed by more re-lubrication of elbows and vocal cords. There are no membership fees or dues or obligations of any kind.

Bampton Folk Club welcomes everyone from seasoned and accomplished musicians to complete beginners and any instruments with the sole purpose of having a great time playing and learning music.  Get in touch via the contact page or simply come along any Sunday.

Bampton Folk Gigs

A busy festive period coming up for a recently formed club, hot on the back of back of a very successful first gig in The Romany (resulting in us moving our regular Sunday session there) we have no fewer than three gigs in the run up to Christmas!


Firstly lending our support to Bampton Garden Plants' Christmas Shopping Evening on Friday 1st December with our set starting at 9:00pm, perfect time to walk down from the Market Square after the Christmas Lights Switch On to catch our set.


Following that, we'll be at The Morris Clown in the function room on Saturday 9th December from 8:00pm for a full length set of our favourites, some new stuff and a few festive treats thrown in!


Finally, we'll be breaking out of the village to play at The Chequers at Brize Norton from 8:00pm on Saturday 16th December.


Of course, we'll also be in The Romany from 7:00pm for our regular session every Sunday although we'll likely skip Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve!


Also look out for another Saturday night gig at The Romany early in the New Year where we'll bring a few new tunes in place of the festive ones.
