The Flying Cloud Folk Club, established in 1983 is Toronto's longest running completely volunteer-run, not-for-profit folk club in this city. We present more than 30 concerts per year on Sundays from September to June, specializing in traditional forms of folk music from many of the cultures represented across Canada, with a strong focus on Canadian, Celtic, Quebecois, American and British Isles artists. Artists are encouraged to bring merchandise, making the Flying Cloud not only a prime source of great live music but also a terrific source of music to go.

We operate out of the Tranzac Club (a small intimate club in downtown Toronto) at 292 Brunswick Avenue, doors open at 7:00, concerts start at 7:30 unless otherwise noted. General admission is usually $20, club members pay less. It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance as seating is limited. Ticket & subscription order form appears at:

Phone: 416.410.FOLK (3655)



Cheers all, Paulette Kirkey,
