Bringing music to the Valley

The Kelowna Folk Club is a non-profit volunteer-driven organization dedicated to the promotion and fostering of live music and its cultural heritage.

 "The Kelowna Folk Club has unfailingly brought exquisite talent to the community. Their reputation for inviting quality acts to our city means all one really has to know is the date of the next concert, because we are guaranteed to get our money's worth."
Anna Jacyszyn, eVent! magazine


With great support from our members, most of the 2015 concerts were SOLD OUT performances and we are looking forward to presenting the remainder of the 2015/2016 season perfomances.

Our house concert attendees have raved about the experience.
We announce these events as we move foward, but please visit us regularly before the event sells out. This is a fabulous way to see these entertainers in a unique intimate setting.

Saturday, June 4th, 7:30 pm

West My Friend

Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music to create a performance that is both engaging and innovative. Songs are created through a collaborative process: well-crafted and clever lyrics, acrobatic mandolin riffs, flawless bass lines, and richly textured accordion combine as every member brings forward their own ideas and experiences.

General tickets go on sale Saturday, May 21st
at ABC Hobby in Kelowna,
The Mad Hatter in West Kelowna,
and on-line here at www.kelownafolkclub.ca
Only 20$, all proceeds to the artists.
See you there....

Sorry ... we are now SOLD OUT.

As those of you who attended Jory's concert when he was here in 2014 know, this is sure to be a popular event. Get your tickets early and don't be disappointed.

Looking for an intriguing blend of ska, reggae, soul, funk and R&B music in an intimate setting? Our last regular living room concert of the season features Calgary musician Jory Kinjo, who brings together unique musical genres to his inspiring performances. Though his initial musical training at the University of Calgary was in jazz, Kinjo’s love of diverse musical styles has led him to involvement in a number of projects such as soul band Mocking Shadows, and ska/reggae band JK & the Relays.

This versatile bassist, guitarist, and front-man has warmed the stage for 3 tours with the legendary B.B. King. Joining Calgary’s Mocking Shadows in 1999, he also performed with such high profile artists as the Tragically Hip, ZZ Top and Buddy Guy.

Ska/Reggae project, JK & the Relays were breakout performers at the 2012 Montreal Ska Festival, Calgary Reggae Festival and the 2013 Victoria Ska Festival.

Jory Kinjo has his own solo career as a songwriter or bassist when he is between bands, special projects or collaborating with other musicians. Recent career highlights include performances with artists South African jazz legend Hugh Masakela and reggae royalty Ziggy Marley.

Jory will be accompanied by Calgary keyboardist Steve Fletcher, who has an exceptionally broad range of musical influences from jazz, pop, rock, reggae and country, nothing is out of his scope of musical abilities.

Only $20.00 with all proceeds to the artists.

Sorry ... we are now SOLD OUT.
