Tigerfolk, Long Whatton, Derbyshire

This traditional folk club meets on the second Tuesday of every month at The Falcon Inn, 64 Main Street, Long Whatton, Loughborough. It usually starts at 7.30pm.

The club was started in February 1991 by singer (and veteran of the UK Folk Scene) Roy Harris. When Roy moved to Cardiff, he left the club in the capable hands of a group of the residents. Most active of these was Andy Leith, a fine singer himself, whose sudden and tragically early death on New Year's Day, 2005, left everyone in shock. Those of us running the club today are dedicated to continuing the tradition started by these two friends: a club dedicated to supporting, sharing and promoting the very best in traditional folk music.
