Welcome to the official website of the Star Folk Club.

Established 1978

The Star Club has been a famous Glasgow institution for over 40 years, attracting the best of musical acts from Britain, Europe and the World.

Tapping into Scotland's own rich musical culture, we feature both established favourites and newcomers in a wide variety of musical styles.



Regrettably it has been decided to close The Star for the foreseeable future.

Since starting back in March audience numbers have not been sufficient to meet our running costs.

We have been able to sustain a loss each week with the benefit of funds accumulated over the years but it is not economically viable for the club to continue doing so.

It is very much hoped that this does not herald the end of The Star Folk Club.

The office bearers and committee will do everything they can to ensure we start back again at some point in the not too distant future.

Each week we open with a feature of 30 minutes of bright new talent and valued friends of the club. So if you have a new band, some original songs or simply a passion to perform, come and

see us for your own spot.

You can, if you wish, become a member for £12 per year. Members get discounts on tickets every week, and information on forthcoming events.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.


With its roots in the heart of the folk revival, the club has endured the years in various forms and locations.

Now in the setting of “Avant Garde” , 34-44 King Street, Glasgow G1 5QT , we offer a weekly helping of the best in acoustic music.

Annual membership brings the benefit of reduced entry each week and support spots feature fresh new talent and valued friends of the club


Come and join us -- non – members always welcome !

Every Tuesday at 8.00 - Doors open at 7.30

Tickets on sale at the door
