Welcome to the new web site for Orpington Folk and Blues, arguably one of the top places to play and listen to music. Don’t let the words folk or blues put you off as you might be pleasantly surprised at what we have to offer.
NB. No fingers have yet been cut off whilst in the performer’s ear!
Also on this site is an important update on Grand Ole Orpy*, our complimentary event that gives musicians an opportunity to try their stuff in front of their peers, an opportunity to seek new alliances and generally have an evening’s fun but without the larger numbers of the Orpington Folk and Blues events.
More pages will become active in the coming weeks and months, including links to some of the most memorable performances by some brilliant musicians.
*Grand Ole Orpy
This takes place on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month – performers have a chance to try out new material in a less formal atmosphere. There is also an opportunity to jam along. Due to a 50% increase in the rental of the hall, Grand Ole Orpy has been suspended until further noticed – sorry about that.
Here is a session from one of our early meetings
