We are visiting family in the leeds area for a week this coming friday, and would be very grateful if anyone could point us in the right direction for some good singers clubs. Thanks!

Hi Will,

the Grove pub has a long history of supporting folk music (and indeed musicians). It's a real ale pub about 5 mins walk from the city centre railway station. I don't live in Leeds now but I know the pub's still going strong.

If you're anywhere near Ilkley on Monday there's a session of singers and musicians at The Swan in Addingham, just a couple of miles further west, and there are other singarounds around, some of which have been noted/advertised on Mudcat, and there's also The Topic at Bradford on Thursday.

Here are a few singarounds that are on this week:

Monday 7 June: The Owl, Rodley, Leeds from 9pmTuesday 8 June: The Abbey, Newlay nr Bramley, Leeds from 8:30pm

These are not folk clubs per se with a wide variety of music (including folk!)performed but they are friendly and welcoming. Both pubs serve excellent ale,and have decent parking for the unfortunate driver.

Wednesday 9 June: The Packhorse, off Briggate, Leeds from 8:30pm

This is a fairly new venture set up by Ed & Carol from the Grove. The pub is in the centre of Leeds, in an alley just off Briggate. A prominent sign shows the way. It's a folkier event than the above, and equally friendly, with typically eight or ten singers. Word of warning: the bar staff don't always realize anything's going on upstairs!

Thursday 10 June: Topic folk club, Bradford.

Not sure what's on this week but they have regular singers' nights. Google them to double check.

Friday 11 June: Folk @ the Grove, Back Row, Water Lane, Leeds from 8:30pm

This is a terrific (mostly) traditional singers' night in another fine real ale pub. Again, a warm welcome is assured.

Hope this helps

Wayne
