Established following Dalbeattie's Folktober Festival in 2014, the club meets once a month in the Kings Arms Hotel, High Street, Dalbeattie.
On the second Thursday of each month, the meeting is a friendly informal music session and sing- around in which anyone is invited to just come and listen, join in with others, or perform a solo spot. The sessions are held in the hotel's lounge bar at 8pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
Guest nights have taken on a new format which will be held quarterly on the last Fridays of February, May, August & November. These will be held in the upstairs room of the King's Arms, running from approximately 8.30 pm until 11 pm, with a minimum charge of £5.00 at the door; (some of these evenings may be by ticket only).
As well as its regular Thursday meetings, the club organises the Folktober Festival, held on the first FULL weekend of October, and additional events throughout the year.
