History of Partick Folk Club


Started up by Mick and Irene West in the Annexe in Stewartville Street, Partick Folk Club moved to its present premises in St Peter's church hall in Chancellor Street in 2008. 

Having built up a reputation for excellent guest nights and great singarounds (and Mick's reknowned soup - alas, no more), the club is now an established venue on the folk circuit, and has been nominated in the Scottish Trad Awards for best folk club.

Much credit for the club's success was due to Mick's hosting skills (Jim King continues the tradition), the high standard of floor singers, friendly atmosphere and audiences that, while always attentive, are always keen to sing with great gusto (and often with harmonies!).

The club also provides a sound system, lights and operator for performers. 

Round all this off with some good-humoured Glasgow patter, BYOB (if you forget, there's a handy shop across the road) and you have a great night out.
