Little Rock Folk Club is dedicated to preserving the link between the musical traditions of the Old and New Worlds.

Little Rock Folk Club was started in 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 our interests.

Joe Crookston

has long been on the LRFC radar (there is a long list!) so when the opportunity arose to present him it was a complete no-brainer notwithstanding the fact that this would mean our first ever Sunday concert. Given the recent excellent attendance to current season concerts we feel confident that the discerning Little Rock music lovers who have been attending our concerts will also grasp this all too rare opportunity to see this truly amazing musician up-close and in person! Songwriter, singer, guitarist, painter, fiddler, banjo player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in- Residence and signed to Tamulevich Artists Management. He’s not afraid to walk outside the trends creating his own version of magic. He’ll surprise you and awaken the cynics.   He’s plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist.  His story songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.  Come to a show. You’ll ride mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through vivid cinematography.  His songs are being made into films.  They are visual, artful and human. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunken roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired.  “The Long Note” is a phrase used in Irish culture. ”The Long Note” is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite. Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in.  It happens every time.  Watch a YouTube video. It’s good, but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show.  With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
