As part of the Year of Stories 2022, The Scottish Maritime Museum and Irvine Folk Club invite you to join them to raise your voice and tap your toes for an evening of traditional folk music inside the historic Linthouse building on the picturesque harbourside in Irvine.
Bringing you some of the best traditional talent in the west of Scotland, you are invited to enjoy an evening of music, magic and myth with special guests ‘Haggerdash’ and performers from one of Scotland’s oldest folk clubs.

If this isn’t enough to tempt you, included is the opportunity to explore the unique Victorian venue of the Linthouse. Known as ‘the Cathedral of Engineering’ the Linthouse Engine Shop is now home to Scotland’s largest collection of maritime memorabilia and machinery, each with a story of its own to tell. Come along at any time after 4pm to see this impressive building and its impressive collection of objects and the current Sea Monsters! exhibition. The music will begin at 6pm and due to finish around 7.30pm.
This Traditional Folk Music Evening is part of the family-friendly October Tales Week, happening between Saturday 15 and Saturday 22 October and which is included in the celebrations for Scotland’s Year of Stories. During the week, visitors will enjoy a host of storytelling sessions led by a traditional storyteller as well as the Museum’s popular ‘Make and Take’ craft sessions.
