About the Hamilton Folk Club:
Hosting regular folk music evenings for over 35 years, the Hamilton Folk Club is now located in a cozy second floor room at the Pheasant Plucker pub. The lights are dimmed around 8:00 p.m. and for the next two and a half hours (sometimes a bit longer) the audience is treated to a concert by a variety of talented musicians. Good food and drink (the Pheasant Plucker is fully licensed) are available at reasonable prices, and our venue is smoke-free. Join us soon for a relaxing evening of fellowship and great entertainment; it’s the stuff of which poetry is written! Just to prove that point, here is one:

Hamilton Folk Club

Eleanor Shaw

There is a place in Hamilton,
It’s called the “folk club” scene.
A welcome place for all who come,
A fun time had for all who’ve been.

Al will lead with wit and whistle.
Although sometimes his jokes will fizzle,
(Sorry, Al) other times they really sizzle.
He told me to say that, but it’s true.

The crowd is loud, the lineup strong,
It starts the same and moves along.
We clap, we sing, and tap our toes,
With amazing sets the evening flows.

Bob, Diane, Sheila, John, Andrew, Darryl,
Russ, Stewart, Larry, Mike, and more,
Steve, David, Eric, Jeremiah, and Doug—
Talent galore.
Dave Jensen, alone, or with the crew,
The beat gets fast and faster still.

The night comes to an end as each one will.
But it’s been great, good times, fantastic music.
With mood so lifted, we leave knowing
In two short weeks we'll be back for more.

Thanks, Hamilton Folk Club
