Friday tunes

With the addition of volume 3, there are now 100 of our favourite tunes. Which of these we actually play changes over time, but if you know any of them, we would be happy to play them with you. The versions shown are (more or less) as we play them. You may find they are a bit different from versions you get from elsewhere - that's folk music for you!

Special events

Carols from Derbyshire

In many parts of the country there is a tradition of singing local carols, often in pubs. The ‘Sheffield Carols’ are the most famous, but the tradition also exists in many villages in North Derbyshire. We have a session in December when we sing carols from Hathersage, Castleton, Eyam, Foolow and Sparrowpit. These carols are all great fun to sing. You don’t need to be able to sing well; the main quality required is enthusiasm!

Our Sing this year is on Friday Dec 8, starting at 7.30.

The list of carols we will sing can be downloaded (see below), as well as the wordsheets and a file showing the tunes as well.

Music Hall

Come along to sing your favourite music hall songs and recite you favourite monologues. The session will be run informally in the style of a folk singaround.
We'll welcome all types of songs, humorous or non-humorous that may or may not have come from the music hall tradition of the UK, Ireland, or elsewhere.

This event has not yet re-started; look out for the next one.

Original Songs

Some of the people who come to the Tuesday Folk Club and/or the Friday/Sunday music sessions have written songs; some of these you can see by following the links below. You don't need permission to perform them, nor to reproduce them for non-profit purposes. If you plan to start making money out of them, that would be a different matter!
