LR Irish Music
Rock Folk Club is dedicated to preserving the link between the musical
traditions of the Old and New Worlds.
Rock Folk Club was founded June 12th 1989
by several diehard fans of U.K. and Irish music in the Little Rock area and
is Little Rock's oldest 'bridge' between the Old and New World musical
traditions. During the intervening years we have produced numerous concerts
by some of the best and most enduring musicians in that genre. This
includes strictly traditional artists and songwriters/composers working in
that genre. LRFC is a 501(c)(3)
organization. We welcome sponsorship, donations and input from others sharing
