The extremely popular Dalgety Bay Folk Club has been going for more than 20 years, but due to Covid restrictions have not been active since 2020. This is about to change.
The club, formed in 1999, have for more than a decade been meeting in the Woodside Hotel Aberdour, but due to a change of circumstances they have been looking for a new home. Consideration and discussions have been held with a few potential venues prior to series of meetings with the management team of Louie Browns and Hugo’s Café Bar, an agreement has been reached for the club to relocate to the new space, The Pavilion, which has been completed recently.
The revamped club kick off proceedings on Friday 18th March, with the ever popular Edinburgh based duo The Sorries performing their mixture of traditional folk songs, some of their own material all interspersed with gags and stories. Plans are in place to have gigs each month with a wide variety of different bands.
Dalgety Bay Folk Club are a friendly inclusive group and are always welcoming to members, new recruits and when space allows visiting folk music fans.
The new expansion of Hugo’s Café Bar adds to the facilities in Dalgety Bay and can as always be relied on to offer a wide selection of food and a well-stocked bar to complement the entertainment.
Folk Club Chair Kirsty Holmes said,
“It could not be a more interesting time to take over as Chair of the Dalgety Bay Folk Club. Colin and Liz Hay have done a superb job as Chair and Treasurer respectively since 1999. We’re keen to build on their firm foundations and to see the Club flourish in the new normal. Working in partnership with Kieron and the staff at Hugo’s should help us do just that. ”
A spokesman for Hugo’s Café Bar said
‘We are pleased to host Dalgety Bay Folk Cub on their return to Dalgety Bay in our new Pavilion space. We look forward to a long and successful venture together.
