Are their any Folk Clubs in the English Lake District. I remember seeing one in Windermere, perhaps one in Ambleside and another, a few years back, in Keswick.

Looking at the thread title, I thought you meant swimming clubs.

I think it's Wednesday evening at the Lamplighter, Windermere. (Little pub on your right as you leave the top road and head down to the lake)

A folk club in a lake? is it held in a boat, or do you have to swim?

Someone said they'd been there a couple of weeks ago - they still serve chips at 'half time' too!

Not quite in the Lakes, but in Cumbria, just. The Hale & Hearty Club at Hale a very small village on the A6 just south of Beetham and perhaps 3 miles south of Milnthorpe. Fridays 1st and 3rd of the month

Next week (Sunday onwards till the weather drives me away) I'll be taking my banjo to the Old Dungeon Ghyll in Langdale and jamming with Jan Vader, a Dutch fiddler friend, whom I met on the campsite a couple of years ago, and any other musicians who happen to be there - there's usually one or two. I play mostly old time tunes, Jan plays anything. Any of you likely to be there?

What a fantastic place to be. But the drive back to Windermere would seriously limit the possible number of lemonades

If you want to hear traditional singing at its very best, try going to one of the "merrie neets" "Shepherd meets" or "Sing-songs" that are organised by the fell hunting packs.

The singing tradition in the fell hunting packs is very strong indeed and they have released many CDs.

All six fell packs have singing nights. But the Coniston foxhounds organise regular singing nights (about once a fortnight) at which ancient and venerable singers sing the most beautiful lake district hunting songs well into the wee small hours. New comers are welcome. New songs are being written all the time and it is a vibrant living tradition. The standard of singing is very high indeed. The sheer reality of these songs is something that I never found in a folk club.

They are held mainly during the hunting season (September-ish - April)

If you want to go to one - go hunting first then ask around for details. Look in the local papers for details.

If you don't approve of hunting - don't bother. If you love folk music you will be well rewarded for the effort.

Mr Happy - I don't know about regular sessions. We're going to play some tunes each night we're there. In my case it'll probably be Monday next 'till Thursday. I seem to remember they used to have a weekly session on a Wednesday a while back, but I don't know if it's still happening. Give the pub a ring, (015394) 37272, I'm sure they'll know.
Cheers
Ray

Are any of the above actually folk clubs (where guests are booked) or are they singers' sessions?
