Tommy makes a very welcome return to Irvine this Wednesday. His last tour was cancelled because of Covid. We look forward to listening to songs and stories as only he can tell. Tommy first visited Irvine in 1973 with the Sands Family. Some of you are too young to remember but those of us who can, remember some very happy times.
Ragged Glory will be the guests at Irvine Folk Club on 22 February. Unfortunately May is ill and wont be able to be there and Jim needs to be with her. George and Charlie will do the gig on their own.
This Wednesday 25th January Irvine Folk Club will have a Burns Night. Our members will provide the entertainment – just a few songs and poems and a nice buffet. We will have a longer interval – a good opportunity to have some food and a good blether. Come along and enjoy a night of live music.
Happy New Year to all. We look forward to a year of good live music. We start off with a change to our programme. Due to a misunderstanding The Lauren Collier Band will not be appearing at Irvine Folk Club on 11 January.
However we are delighted to say that Stephen and Pernille Quigg have stepped in and will be our guests next Wednesday.
We look forward to this.

We were all shocked to hear of the death of Rab Noakes. Rab was a good friend to Irvine and who can forget him representing Irvine Folk Club on the Quiz Show Eggheads. Our thoughts are with his family.
Kenny Speirs will be the guest at Irvine Folk Club on 16th November. Kenny has visited Irvine many times before and has always gone down well. Dominic Boyce’s pal we can expect some surprises.
