MAURICE DICKSON
Members £5.00 Non-Members £8.00
A long-overdue return of the hugely popular Northern Irishman whose infectious enthusiasm and vitality always makes for a brilliant evening. A true entertainer and an artiste, he has multiple recordings to his name and many of his songs such as "Wine and Roses", "Dream of the Dying Soldier" and "Where Eagles Fly" are now standards. We welcome Maurice back to Glenfarg.

April 6th
SINSHEEN
Members £5.00 Non-Members £8.00
Barbara Dymock and Christine Kydd, two hugely respected singers in their own right, make up this harmony singing duo. Their reputation for originality, virtuosity, harmonies and lively performances makes them welcome guests at any folk event. Always fully committed to the occasion, there will be lots of craic and audience participation on offer. We are delighted to see them back at the Club tonight.

Friday 10th to Sunday 12th April
37th ANNUAL FOLK FEAST
See The Folk Feast page for full details
The one and only ‘Occasionals’ kick off the weekend festivities at the Grand Ceilidh on Friday night. Thereafter, the Saturday and Sunday concerts are littered with star acts including Vin Garbutt, Barluath, Steve Tilston, Mairearad and Anna, Bob Wood, The Sangsters and the return of our own Farg Folk. Now is that not a lineup to get your vocal chords itching to sing along?
‘In the Bag’ are back to entertain the children on Sunday and along with workshops, singarounds, sessions, our Original Song Competition with the theme ‘Food for Thought’, and the 30th World Puff-a-Box Championships, it all adds up to a wonderful weekend in Glenfarg.
News Flash! The winner of the Original Song Competition will be presented with a Silver Salver kindly donated by club member Duncan McNab. This is a perpetual trophy and will have the winners name engraved on it. We are very proud of it and indebted to Duncan for his gift.

April 13th
FOLK FEAST RECOVERY SESSION
All £3.00
Following on from the weekend's Folk Feast, this singaround is always billed as a post-feast recovery evening. So, quite simply, come and sing any of the songs you may have heard, or wished you had heard, over the weekend! All stragglers welcome!

April 20TH
OPEN MIC
All £3.00
Come and get the chance to show your vocal or instrumental skills on stage using the Club's excellent PA system.
The night will also feature Duncan McNab singing 4 or 5 of his very unique self penned songs. Duncan is archiving his work as he and Lizbeth prepare to head off for their new life down-under in New Zealand, so this may be one of the last opportunities for you to hear Duncan perform live at his favourite club.


April 27th
MAIRI CAMPBELL
Members £5.00 Non-Members £8.00
Mairi returns to the Club having performed at our recent Folk Feast as part of The Occasionals Ceilidh Band and as a performer at a harmony singing workshop. However, tonight she appears as the award winning solo singer who won the Scots Singer of The Year in 2007. Her wonderful voice and musicianship (as fiddler and composer) ensure that we are in for a real treat. Check out her beautiful singing of Auld Lang Syne in the film Sex and the City and then make sure you come early to get a seat!
