Orpington Folk Club is a members club. However since the advent of new laws relating to public performances
(PRS Performing Rights Society) the club no longer has to be a members club but for its own sake we have kept it on and it is now optional and free to join. Orpington Folk Club meets every Thursday evening from 8:15pm till 11:00pm
The format for most thursdays, except singarounds, is to commence with one of our regular singer(s)/musician(s), followed by a floor singer from the audience who has requested a spot. For those seeking a floor spot on a guests night. We recommend you phone or email us first, especially if coming from a long way. We also have to be selective on guest/s nights.
Or should I sing, play an instrument or percussion while others are performing?
While we at the OFC encourage participation, it should be limited to joining in the chorus of a song. In most cases we find the performers prefer to play it thier way - unless they request that the audience join in. This applies to both guest nights and singers nights. Please keep noise and conversations levels to a minimum during a performance.
Singers nights start off in a similar way to guest(s) nights but continue on with singers from the floor to perform for us. Each spot will be around 8-10 minutes in duration, depending on how many wish to perform that evening. Singers nights are a popular part of the club's program with all types of acoustic folk music and song performed. This is the chance for SOLO or GROUPS of singer musicians to come and showcase their talent.
