Folkie stuff: I can’t possibly cover the whole spectrum of music in Shropshire and hereabouts. 🙂 I might include some open mic events in due course.
Firstly, the only events I regularly go to:
- 1st Friday of the month: acoustic folk session at The Unicorn, Corve Street, Ludlow 01584 879348
- 3rd Thursday of the month: acoustic folk session at The Castle, Knucklas.01547 528223
- Every 3rd Thursday of every second month: Folk Down the Track visits the Castle Inn Knucklas session (next one at time of writing is April 18th 2013), May also be other events and venues. 01584 872665. Knucklas is on the Heart of Wales line, so the event attracts quite a few people from Shrewsbury and Ludlow.
Other stuff I know about:
- Every Wednesday: Folk Singaround/Session at the Knighton Hotel, Knighton, Powys, 8.30-11.00. Also on the Heart of Wales line, but the last trains go too early to make it a good prospect for getting to by train. (Terry Shepherd, 01547 530588)
