Covid-19 Update

The folk club at The Black Swan continues to remain closed for the time being due to the current health crisis.
There's been a lot of postponing, rescheduling and postponing again on the gig front, but at the moment we do have some live folk music dates to look forward to later this year, with Jon Boden, Della Mae(USA), Eliza Carthy. John Smith, Grace Petrie, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman among them. For updates check out the club programme on this website, keep your eyes on our Facebook and Twitter pages, and sign up to our mailing list by dropping us a line to .
Meanwhile the Black Swan 'Virtual' Folk Club continues with a new playlist every Thursday from 7pm. Watch from this website or from our You Tube channel Black Swan Folk Club York UK.
Stay safe and keep well. Hoping to see you all again soon

6th May 2021 - Virtual Folk Club: 6th May

Another great 'Virtual' line up for this week starting with Chris Euesden and his own 'lockdown' song. Stan Graham covers a Tom Paxton classic followed by 2 fine guitar instrumentals. Firstly from the late lamented Dave Evans who last played the club back in 1981, followed by Clive Carroll who will be playing for us once again in March of next year. Growing in popularity York based The Magpies have just released a spellbinding new single and here is the accompanying video to go with it. Next up Archie Fisher sings 'Borderlands'. He last played the club in June of 2010. Grace Petrie follows. Her rescheduled concert is now booked in for 23 May 2022. Then we have a Jez Lowe song from Bob Fox, another club favourite who we hope to see back at the club soon and to finish off the inimitable Della Mae who we are presenting at York's Crescent Club on Saturday September 4th.

Coming up this week...
