Bury Folk Collective

We promote the very best of grass roots folk music through a range of folk-related events in and around Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk

Bury Folk Collective is run by a group of experienced local folk performers and enthusiasts. Our events grew out of the Unplugged and Local Artists Nights run by The Milkmaid Folk Club in Bury St Edmunds and we are now an independent folk performance organisation.

Our home venue is Risbygate Sports Club in Westley Rd, Bury St Edmunds.

Our events at a glance

Contemporary folk

Contemporary folk nights, on the first Wednesday of the month. The music start at 8.00 pm and continues till 10.30 pm with a mid-evening break

On these evenings, we provide an MC but no PA – performances are unplugged. We usually ask artists to perform a total of three or four songs, tunes or items. There may be some flexibility at the discretion of the MC, but we will usually ask you to give two of your pieces in each half of the evening.

There may be opportunities for performers from the floor to provide a song or two – and we may invite booked-in performers to play more pieces if there is time, so have an extra tune or two ready.

Folk Roots

Folk Roots nights run, on the third Wednesday of the month. The music start at 8.00 pm and continues till 10.30 pm with a mid-evening break

Folk Roots nights have a traditional focus. We welcome singers and musicians who work within the forms that are found in the traditions of these islands or who draw on those forms for their inspiration.
