Partisan Folk Club at Partisan, Manchester, 12 December 2021, free entry - Visit now

Folk music is an age-old oral tradition of sharing and appreciating good music. For seasoned players who are well accustomed to the sesh, it is common to lose yourself in a room full of strangers and intricate melodies. Partisan are hosting a session which aims to be equally accommodating to those who are totally new to folk music as well as the wonderful souls whose life pursuit is to spend as much time as possible playing in folk festivals, fields and pubs across the country. Experience this uniquely magical way of making music at the Partisan Folk Club.

Folk music is based around the sharing of songs from different cultures and a respect for the musical heritage of these tunes. Expect to find variety within the room. Often the choice of tunes in a session is led by the mix of people in the room, meaning that by the end of the evening you form a hybrid community which combines elements of each individual’s musical culture.

Whether you sing, play an instrument or just want to listen, all are welcome at Partisan Folk Club. So as to allow for people to learn the tunes before launching into a full throttle reel, the space is led so as to take things slowly and help people find ways of enjoying each tune regardless of their level of playing.

no better accompaniment to soul warming folk music than a belly warming chippy tea

You’re invited to bring your own booze, herbal teas, lemonade, whatever your poison as well as snacks and food, as there isn’t a bar or cafe on site. The chippy just around the corner from Partisan’s new home in Salford is particularly good. We recommend no better accompaniment to soul warming folk music than a belly warming chippy tea.
