Dreamers Folk Club has been on a journey, both geographically and musically.
Starting life in March 2000 under the banner ” St.Ives Folk Club” at the Tyringham Arms moving on to the Star Inn at St.Erth before moving to larger premises at the Smugglers Inn at St Erth Praze, where under the guidance of Niall and Kitty Timmins the club prospered. Changes of ownership at the Smugglers forced a move to Wheal Dream Inn at Helston, where we had many happy years and where we acquired the new name of “Dreamers Folk”.
Niall and Kitty had read a poem by Arthur O’Shaughnessy in which he wrote that “we are the music makers we are the dreamers of dreams”. It all seemed to fit the brief and so we have appropriated that line into our logo.
We have been supported over the years by a loyal band of local singers and songwriters and musicians and the “family” feel on our folk nights is widely admired. We extend a very warm welcome to one & all to experience that special atmosphere of friends in harmony raising the roof in song.
