Dateline ... Thursday 24 October 2019
Our full programme up to Christmas 2019 is listed below and all shows are now on sale on-line as usual.
CARRYING STREAM FESTIVAL
Of particularly special note is this year's Carrying Stream Festival - Friday 8 to Sunday 10 November 2019 (inc).
This year is the 100th anniversary of Hamish Henderson's birth so it is a bit special.
To mark this, we've got a rather more extensive weekend of events than last year featuring such notable performers as Malinky, Rab Noakes, Sangstream and Findlay Napier among others.
We're sure you'll enjoy their shows.If you want a ticket for the lecture (NB: free admission) go to the Scottish Storytelling Centre's website ASAP - there are only 100 tickets and that number is rapidly depleting (click here). There is also a songwriting workshop led by Findlay Napier - click here for tickets (limited to max 15). NB: Tickets for both these events are available only from the Storytelling Centre.

WEEKLY EFC EVENTS
In the list of gigs below, click on each performer's name for info about them and to go to the on-line box office to buy advance tickets. We try to provide advance tickets up to (approximately) two months ahead so if you find a box office link unavailable here it just means we haven't got round to that gig yet. You could, however, go directly to our on-line box office here to see if the show is on sale there.
We always recommend buying in advance since, if a show sells out (and they do), we cannot push the walls of the venue back to accommodate extra seats!
Now in its 46th season (2019-2020), the EDINBURGH FOLK CLUB meets every Wednesday (summer and xmas breaks excepted) and starts promptly at 8.00pm with an opening act, maybe two, followed by the headliner's first set.
After an interval there is usually a song from one of our residents, followed by a short set from the opening act, the raffle(!), and the headliner's second set. We aim to finish around 10.45pm or thereabouts.Tickets are available in advance for each event by clicking on the on-line box office links in the list of shows above.
You can usually get a ticket at the door from 7.30pm on the night (subject to availability)
However be warned that we do sometimes sell out so always buy tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates on sold-out shows or cancellations due to weather.
In general ticket prices are ...
£9.00 (usual concessions)
£7.00 (EFC members and any card carrying member of any folk club elsewhere in the world)
£5.00 (Any matriculated student from any college or university anywhere in the world.)
Some events may have special (usually more expensive) pricing (*) and if so we indicate that.
