Get Folked

Inverclyde Community Development Trust and Inverclyde Folk Club have come together to get everyone talking and singing about local heritage at a folk night to be held in the Loreto Club this Friday.

Identity is all about the different people and cultures who have passed through our area, those who moved on and those who stayed. Songs, stories and music are of course a key part of peoples cultural Identity. And it's also quite a good excuse for a wee dance.

Inverclyde Folk Club have pulled together an excellent and diverse line-up for the evening, with performances from club members, The Drams Band, local singer/songwriter Davy Nicol and a performance from critically acclaimed fiddle trio Reely Jiggered, currently putting the finishing touches to their new CD. We'll have some more information on the evenings performers through the week.

A short film about the project will be shown on the night and people will also be able to come and talk to the staff team about how to get involved.

This traditional folk night is the first in a series of cultural evenings to raise awareness of the project throughout June.

Doors open at the Loreto Club at 7pm on Friday.
