The Dunedin Folk Club

Bring an instrument, a friend or just yourself. All welcome.

The Dunedin Folk Club (formerly the New Edinburgh Folk Club) commenced in 1975 as a place where people interested in traditional and contemporary acoustic music could share their talents, skills and repertoire in a semi-formal and social forum. Today it remains a highly active club with weekly clubnights, two annual festivals and regular concerts, workshops, sessions and social activities. Although it is a `club´ in the sense that is an incorporated society, all our events are open to all-comers, audience and performers alike.

A typical club night is a semi-formal concert. The first half is usually made up of floor-spots (casual performers who turn up - make yourself known to the compere) with the second half a booked performer advertised here and in our weekly email newsletter.

Regular events

Mondays - Contradance 7.30 pm

Thursdays - Open Mic 7.30 pm

You don't have to be a club member to attend any of our events, but being a member will usually get you discounts (usually a $5 discount). Membership is $25 for an individual or $40 for a family or household per year. Sign up (or renew your membership) online here. Not ready to join, but want to know what's on?
