Click on red text to see more detailed information. The activities we are involved in fall into four main categories.
- Folk Club Guest Concert Nights
- Folk Club Floor Singer Open Mic Nights
- Phoenix Jam
- Phoenix Musical Hearts & Minds.
Our venue for all activities is town centre Ayr Ex-Services Club, Academy Street.
Folk Club Guest Concert Nights are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.15 for 8.00 pm. There is normally an entrance charge, and the night consists of a guest headline performer supported by floor singers. Our monthly 2018 programme starts on 6th February with a July/August summer recess.
Folk Club Floor Singer Open Mic Nights are free entry and held on the third Tuesday of each month 7.30 to 10.30 pm. Whereas club guest concert evenings provide limited floor singing opportunity , these nights offer a performance stage for as many floor singers as can be offered a spot or two over the whole evening. Our monthly 2018 programme starts on 16th January with a July/August summer recess
Phoenix Jam is a free, open and supportive acoustic jam session held on Saturday afternoons in the Ayr Ex-Services Club from 2.00 until 5.00 pm. All are welcome, whether you want to perform or just watch and listen.
Phoenix Musical Hearts & Minds REACH OUT. Due to low attendance issues our free music therapy alzheimers/dementia/multiple sclerosis support offshoot of Ayr Phoenix Folk Club will now be operating by way of a monthly REACH OUT afternoon. Our tried and tested interactive musical entertainment model now operates at pre-booked care homes and day centres on the first Monday of every month 2.00 pm to 3.30 pm. Care community centres are invited to book for a tremendous friendship and music-making first Monday of month afternoon. Nominal donations gratefully accepted
