We've had six great concerts so far this year, Christine Collister and Michael Fix, the Seamus Begley Trio, Fromseier Hockings, Sarah Carroll, Beautifully Mad, and Tony McManus and Fiona Ross.

We had a feast of music in 2016 with Irish singer songwriter Colum Sands, renowned guitarists Tony McManus and Beppe Gambetta, followed by UK folk duo Henry and Hannah Martin. May saw a wonderful performance of DEAD MEN TALKING, a 90 minute play written by and featuring Max Cullen and Warren Fahey. Slightly cantankerous, yet grateful of their old friendship, Henry Lawson (Max Cullen) and A. B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson (Warren Fahey) discuss each others lives including their famous ‘War of Words’ in The Bulletin. 

June saw one of Ireland's finest Uillean pipers, John McSherry, with top Irish fiddler, Donal O'Connor and Robert Hillman (guitar) at the Cobargo Hotel, followed by Aine Tyrell and Nick Martin, a week later. Eleanor McEvoy delivered a fabulous performance in November, with legendary English singer, Martyn Wyndham-Read later that month as well.  

Keep watching this page for news of concerts coming up. The Yuin Folk Club is run by volunteers and the money raised at our concerts goes to pay the artists, funds the sound system and pays for the tea and coffee. Hope to see you there!
