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 our concerts are SOLD OUT performances.

Roy Forbes, formerly known as “Bim”, is that rare BC artist with a street named in his honour in his hometown of Dawson Creek, BC. Roy brings with him a great batch of original songs nearly 50 years in the making. He also travels with an in-depth knowledge of jazz, blues, country, rock ‘n’ roll and folk music.

Roy started “up north” in the ‘60s. Performing as “Bim,” he had his brush with stardom before becoming one of Canada’s most respected and best-loved singer/songwriters. With ten solo records and two more with his UHF companions, Shari Ulrich and Bill Henderson, Roy has left much for posterity. His CKUA Radio show, “Roy’s Record Room”, recently celebrated its 11th year. As a performer, he is a master of the stage, establishing an electrical connection with audiences.


only $20 with all proceeds to the artists

“ … This man cooked! Basic recipe...start with generous portions of John Hiatt, Taj Mahal and Doctor John. Next, stir in a tantalizing blend of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waitts. Now a key ingredient...fold in huge dollops of Otis Spann southside Chicago piano. Spice it up with a few generous cups of Duane Allman/Ry Cooder bottle-neck guitar on a vintage Fender Stratocaster. This is sounding mighty tasty, but not finished yet! Add more flavour with some old-time fiddle - and several big pinches of blues fiddle too! (Shake - don't stir.) Finally, make it all rise with some Victor Borge.
Electric, eclectic, exquisite - last night's show was one sensory overload!”
(Ron Scott, The Pas, Manitoba)
