Go to the Suffolk Folk website. You'll find the details about Mardles there (published by Suffolk Folk) including contact details, information on how to join Suffolk Folk and why you should (including: you get Mardles posted to you free), information about dances, concerts, workshops and other events organised by Suffolk Folk.

Mardles has good listings of sessions, morris teams, ceilidhs, clubs etc. Suffolk has a healthy pub session scene.

Clubs:
Waveney has been mentioned.
Norwich (not strictly Suffolk but close to Lowestoft/Yarmouth)
Everyman, Saxmundham
Milkmaid, Bury St Edmunds.

They all seem to meet on Fridays...

Look out for events at the Halesworth Cut and the theatre at Bungay.

Not a club, but try the 'Eel's Foot' at Eastbridge on a Thursday night for 'anything goes'. Quite a journey, but visitors from Lowestoft seem to think it worthwhile.

Thank you for the advice (I have thanked a few people individually as well, so please don't think I'm too impolite!), and I've enjoyed Waveney so much I've been persuaded to help run an additional evening there.

From the 2nd October Waveney Folk Club will have a singers night every fortnight. Guest nights continue as before, starting with Mary Humphries and Anahata on the 11th September. At the moment this is for the three months October - December and the Club will then decide whether the support is sufficient to keep it going.

Regards,

ChocolateLover

Just a quick bump to remind that it's the inaugaral meeting of the Waveney Folk Singaround tonight at the Crown Street Hall (entrance off Factory Street).

Everyone welcome, no licence so bring your own (makes us a cheap date!) soft drinks available.

Thanks Chocolate Lover.

The Eel's Foot on a Thursday followed the night after by your singaround makes programming a visit to my Mother-in-law much more pleasant. :0)

Hi John,
I went to the Eel's foot last night - quite a good night but I didn't manage sing 5 songs like you did. Only managed 3.

Nothing on at the Blaxhall Ship tonight so I'm thinking of trying the Waveney (if it's not too far).

Look at littlebirdtoldme.info for folk stuff centred in the Norfolk/Suffolk border area. This is a fairly new site that looks quite promising in keeping up to date with events.

Anything that makes visiting the mother in law more pleasant has to be a good thing. It would be lovely to see you Alan - I shall be the slightly panicky looking one singing first! It's the first folk club I have attempted to run, but my singing partner used to run one in Essex many years ago so with his help and my trusty back-of-the-envelope list of things to do, hopefully it will go well.

Is there still one in Ipswich? I used to go back in the 60s when I was still at school! Held in the Suffolk Punch pub on Norwich Road.

One of the things about Suffolk (and Norfolk) is that the majority of the folk music takes place 'off piste' in singarounds and sessions.

As Treewind opined, the Mardles Magazine will open a cornucopia of delights!

Best wishes,

Peter

It was a good night, we covered the room rent (hurrah!) which has to be a good thing. A lot of people were away at a cider-soaked camping weekend but we had plenty enough there for a good night. Next one is on the 16th if anyone is about. The next guest is Tony Hall with Skip and Alasdair on the 9th.
