Wired folk

Running on the 2nd Thursday of the month the Wired folk nights give performers a chance to experience playing to a live audience on a stage with lights and a P.A. complete with a compère and experienced sound engineer.

The evenings start at 7:30 and finish at 10:30 at the Hunter Club in the Green Room. There is a small entrance fee of £3 for those who are not playing, this is to cover the hire costs but performers don’t pay.

Folk music covers a wide spectrum and these evenings try to cater for everything from self-penned to covers, contemporary to traditional as long as it’s folkish. Acts are pre-booked so please contact us if you would like a spot.

The Hunter Club address is 6 St Andrew's St S, Bury St Edmunds IP33 3PH

All you need to bring on the night is yourself and your instrument. However, if you have any specialist instrument mics/pickups/FX pedals/tuner please bring them. We do not normally do sound checks for Wired Nights, but if you are unsure about any technical issues please make sure you arrive early and have a word with Steve our sound engineer.

There is a licensed bar that also serves tea/coffee and it is requested that all mobile phones are turned off. We look forward to seeing and hearing you on the night

Please Note : From April 2017 Wired nights will be moving to the 2nd Thursday of the month at The Hunter Club

General Notes

The running order is announced at the start of all Bury Folk Collective evenings. We therefore ask all performers to arrive in good time (you might be asked to play first!) and to be tuned and ready to go by the stated start time. Performers at our events do not pay an entrance fee.

Bury Folk Collective encourages a ‘listening audience’ – we ask that all mobile phones are switched off so you can be assured of quiet during your spots. As a courtesy to other contributors, we ask you to join the ‘listening audience’ when you are not playing and to give other musicians your attention for the full evening. Our events are as much about listening to one another as they are about performance.

We do encourage audience participation when it is appropriate – and the Bury Folk Collective audience can also be a fine ‘singing audience’. If you have songs that people can join in with and you would welcome some participation, please let people know at the start of the piece.
