Wychwood Folk Club started in February 2014 and is already attracting some of the biggest names in the business to this quaint part of the Cotswolds. Peter Knight, Richard Digance, Barbara Dickson & Martin Carthy to name but a few.
Sponsored by The Wychwood Brewery and with Fairport Convention’s Chris Leslie as it’s patron it is aiming high.
The club aims to:
Provide a platform for artiste’s of all levels to perform in a friendly atmosphere.
Bring some of the best artiste’s in the Folk/Acoustic world to our part of the Cotswold’s here in West Oxfordshire
Provide a stage for the best local artiste’s and to give them chance to perform and sell their music in a custom made setting
The club normally runs two events a month on Saturdays split between Tiddy Hall & The Swan Inn both located on Shipton Road, Ascott u- Wychwood, however there is not set rule for which Saturday and the odd month with 5 Saturday’s in it sometimes see’s an extra event or singaround added.
