Presenting live acoustic music in Twickenham most Sundays, usually at Patchworks, The Cabbage Patch pub, at 8pm (doors open 7.45pm)

TwickFolk is coming back!

TwickFolk has been presenting live music in South West London since January 1983. We are now one of the best-known and most highly respected hosts of live acoustic, folk, blues and Americana in South East England. We aim to book the best quality acts across a broad range of genres – traditional and contemporary music from Britain, Europe and beyond.

Seventeen months after our last event, the TwickFolk committee is delighted to be returning in September, with singarounds for a couple of weeks (government restrictions permitting) and concerts starting in October. We look forward to seeing you back at Patchworks at The Cabbage Patch, for songs, poems and a good old natter!

In the meantime please join us on Facebook for our Sunday evening song sessions. Look out for our email newsletters, check our website, Facebook, and Twitter for updates, and we look forward to welcoming you back at such time as we get the go-ahead that it’s safe to reopen.

Coming up at TwickFolk:

We’re going to try to keep TwickFolk going ‘online’ again on Sunday during our usual opening hours in the TwickFolk Friends group.
There won’t be an MC hosting or a set order of spots. Just check first that someone else isn’t already playing….if not jump on ‘stage’ and do one or two songs!

If you’ve not used Facebook Live before, it works best from the Facebook app on your smartphone or tablet. Most web browsers on computers don’t allow the ‘Go Live’ option (Firefox does work) and the sound and pictures tend to be better using a phone.

Check your phone camera to see if it has a ‘mirror’ setting you can turn off, otherwise like many of our contributors, you’ll find yourself playing wrong-handed.

26 September: Return to the Cabbage Patch! Bring a song or two, join in, or just come and listen

Instrument TreeTwickFolk’s coming back!

Government restrictions permitting, we’re returning to Patchworks this September.  We’re starting off with a couple of singarounds, because it’s too long since we all sang together.

Expect anything from sea shanties to psychedelia, with a mix of original songs, traditional songs and covers of well known and less known songs.

Some performers will take requests on the night.

If you fancy a go at singing in public, then this is the place to start.

If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.

We welcome anyone with a song or a tune to play. Or a poem or a story tell. Expect a warm welcome and a supportive ring of singers and audience.

Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.
