The Keevil Folk Night has been an annual event for several years. Usually – but not always! – held in the village hall in March, it has become one of the most successful events in the village calendar, and attracts some of the finest folk acts both locally and nationally.
ANNOUNCEMENT 19th January 2021
FOLK NIGHT SATURDAY – 13th MARCH 2021 Cancelled
It will come as no surprise that our folk night scheduled for Saturday 13th March has been cancelled. All of the acts booked for that night have fortunately been re-scheduled for a future folk night in Keevil (see below).
It is now nearly two years since we last held our annual folk night (March 2019). Over this period we have regrettably had to cancel three events – a performance by the prestigious folk act Faustus, Folk on the Boat (2020) and last year’s folk night. Undeterred however, in the hope that the situation will improve, we have listed below re-arranged dates for your diary spanning the next year or so:-
FOLK ON THE BOAT – SATURDAY 26TH JUNE 2021
A return evening trip along the Kennet and Avon Canal on a broad beam boat The John Rennie. We’ll embark from the entrance to the Somerset Coal Canal at the Dundas Aqueduct, Limpley Stoke and journey to the Avoncliff Aqueduct. There will be a supper included and an onboard licensed bar. Music will be provided by the popular folk duo Jan and Ian.
FOLK NIGHT IN KEEVIL VILLAGE HALL – SATURDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2021
ANNUAL FOLK NIGHT IN KEEVIL VILLAGE HALL – SATURDAY 12TH MARCH 2022
For more details and to register an interest in these events (as spaces could be limited) please contact either Rachel and Tony (870661) or Janet and Norman (870417).
Also a reminder that those holding tickets from the cancelled Faustus concert can be used to offset the cost of tickets for any of the above-mentioned events.
Folk Night March 2019
Janet, Norman, Rachel & Tony would like to thank all those who supported this years folk night – another sell-out evening and overwhelming success – from opening newcomers Fly Yeti Fly (we want to see more of you two!), welcome returns for Mike Deverall and Feral Beryl, and the legendary Folklaw lads setting the stage alight as they closed the show.
All proceeds fund future folk events. A few photographs from the night by Sarah Dow…. click on an image to see it full size/in a gallery.
