Penicuik Folk Club meets Tuesday evenings in the Roadhouse Pub, 136 John Street, Penicuik, EH26 8NJ, (01968) 678405. It´s a fine venue right in the middle of sunny downtown Penicuik, opposite the Tower chippie(!) – a real folk-club atmosphere. We are in the comfy lounge bar for sessions and in the function room for concerts.
The club holds a concert once each month (generally the second Tuesday of the month) when a professional folk artist or band performs and visitors to the club pay an entrance fee. All other Tuesdays are free Singers Nights.
They book folk musicians and encourage the playing and singing of folk music but interpret “folk” very liberally. Many of their guests and regular sessioneers veer into country and western, blues, acoustic rock/pop. We work on the premise that any song has the potential to become a folk song it just has to be good enough to last long enough to become part of the singing tradition.
