Newcastleton Folk Club has now been going since April 2014. It takes place on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Grapes Hotel upstairs and continues to grow from strength to strength with a variety of songs and tunes each time. We welcome audience as well as singers and musicians and usually sing and play around the room, though if there are plenty of musicians they are welcome to break out into a communal selection of tunes. We welcome newcomers.
