Folk Night

Presented by the Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Arts Society, Folk Night at the Ship is St. John’s longest continually running live music event (it started in 1976!) and regularly draws a sizeable crowd each Wednesday night; sometimes 100 souls and rarely less than 50. The music ranges from solo songwriters, traditional Newfoundland, blues, klezmer and all styles in between.

There are often special events such as the Folk Festival Launch, themed evenings, open mike nights and one Wednesday of every month is reserved for a traditional tune session that often has 20 or more players in attendance.

And if that isn’t enough, we often have door prizes in the form of gift certificates from our sponsors plus various CDS, artist merch and concert tickets from time to time.

Folk Night starts at 9 p.m. (yes, it really does!) and cover is $10 most nights with the exception of tune sessions and certain special events.
