Calgary Folk Club Logo

The Calgary Folk Club is Calgary’s first folk music club. In our 50 years of operations, we have created vital partnerships to promote the city’s music scene and Alberta talent to the world.

The Calgary Folk Club provides an environment of discovery, reflection, diversity and community. We provide a setting where our listening-oriented audience is keen to hear the musicality, harmonies and storytelling of the individuals and groups coming to the stage.

We believe that providing diverse musical experiences for the Calgary area, where artists are paid according to Socan Standards, opens the western Canadian market for touring artists from across the world. The Calgary Folk Club is an inclusive venue where performers can refine their craft, test a new skill or song and perform to an attentive and observant audience.

Each concert is composed of a ‘Main Act’ and a ‘First-up’. For the main, we seek out high-quality, renowned artists – often recognized award winners. Our first-up spaces are offered to award-winning performers, as well as up-and-coming artists who may be unfamiliar to the Calgary audience.

We see the Club as Canada’s best live folk music venue. An attentive listening atmosphere that is diverse, accessible and affordable. We want to continue to foster a space where the current community members and future generations come together and interact with the artists to make music collaboratively.

The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.
