For a long time Cornwall has had a thriving folk scene due at least in part of the tireless efforts of Chris Ridley in producing and distribution Folknews Kernow for the past 41 years.
Folk in Cornwall aims to continue and extend this tradition, with this website set up to bring the information in the magazine to a wider audience and to give us the chance to update club and event details between the printed issues that are published every three months.Folk in Cornwall is run on a voluntary basis. Production and distribution costs are kept to a minimum and are met by advertisers and through donations from supporters. We also rely on club and event organisers to keep is informed of their activities. If you know of anything that is happening on the folk scene that we have not included, or if you would like to support Folk in Cornwall, please get in touch.
This webiste is still being developed. We have details of song, music and dance clubs, groups and sessions - including Google maps to help find them. There is an event diary. On the diary page there is a link to details of when regular events - weekly or monthly clubs and sessions - happen. Finally there is a facility to view and download pdf versions of all issues of the magazine.
If there is anything else you would like to see on the website please let us know.
