Carlsberg don’t run Folk Clubs, but if they did it would be based in the lounge bar of the Kilmarnock Arms Hotel Cruden Bay, which is probably the best wee folk club in the world.

Club nights are held on the last Friday of every month from 9:00 pm, till around midnight and it’s not a bad idea to have a meal at the hotel before hand, that way you can be sure of a seat when things busy up later on, to reserve a table just call the hotel on 01779 812213.

The format of the evening is played out in two halves, the first half will be slightly more structured with performers invited to play to the audience, during this section a PA system is available. There will then be a short break during which time there will be a wee raffle to raise funds, prize donations are always very much appreciated.

The second half will be an open session giving everyone the opportunity to get involved.

Although called Cruden Bay Folk Club, we welcome a much broader range of musical genres with an anything goes attitude to what performers can choose to play.

So if you can make it to Cruden Bay on the last Friday of the month you’ll be made most welcome at Cruden Bay Folk Club, so get the date of our next meeting in your diary and we’ll see you there.
