Roots, Blues, Bluegrass, Americana, Folk and so much more. This is a place where everyone can find out what is happening at the Lethbridge Folk Club. The main goal of the Lethbridge Folk Club is to offer “Live Folk Music” to people in and around Lethbridge, Alberta by hosting concerts and open stages regularly.  The organization is a non-profit and is run entirely by volunteers.

The Lethbridge Folk Club, established in 1979, is a vibrant hub for folk music enthusiasts. Founded by a diverse group of individuals, its mission is to provide a platform for local, national, and international folk music. Over the years, iconic Canadian folk acts like Valdy, Spirit of the West, the Rankin Family, and Connie Kaldor have graced its stage. Recent performances include those by Peter and the Wolves, Lennie Gallant, Oscar Lopez, and Sid Marty with Wailback.

The club has a rich history of organizing folk festivals, starting in the 1980s and continuing into 2021 and 2022. It played a pivotal role in the formation of the South Country Fair in Fort Macleod and actively participated in the Lethbridge Children’s Festivals.

Currently, concerts take place at The Cave at Lethbridge College, while open stages unfold at McKillop United Church. Genres explored include folk, roots, blues, country, bluegrass, and Canadiana, ensuring a diverse musical experience for all. The Lethbridge Folk Club firmly believes that live music enriches our cultural, spiritual, and community fabric, remaining committed to supporting local and regional artists and celebrating the magic of music together.
