In the last 30 year’s DeBarra’s Folk Club in the beautiful sea-side town of Clonakilty has earned a musical reputation that has traveled far beyond the confines of its West Cork location.

Long standing associations with Noel Redding (the Jimi Hendrix Experience) Paddy Keenan (The Bothy Band) & Folk artists Christy Moore & Roy Harper have served as the cornerstones of this little venues world wide renown as one of the finest music house’s in Ireland. In these three decades musicians from all genres & generations have fed into the Folk Club’s magical history, with almost every performance seemingly woven into the brickwork of its worn, familiar walls. This year (2013) DeBarra’s celebrates 30 years of music with some very special shows & events from artists new and established that have become synonymous with the Folk Club over the last 3 decades. We hope you will join us to celebrate our musical milestone this summer & look forward to another 30 years of amazing music yet to come!

“There’s Carnegie Hall, The Royal Albert, Sydney Opera House and then there’s De Barra’s,” Christy Moore, (August 2003)
