Our Club Nights
Deep Cove Folk meets the second Friday of each month except July and August beginning at 8:00PM in St. John’s United Church, 10990 West Saanich Road (in the center of the Deep Cove entertainment district. Suggested Admission Price is $10. Coffee / tea / juice / juice and cookies, cake or other goodies by donation.
The format for DCF is a 45-60 minute open stage (10 minutes per performer) beginning at 8:00PM followed by a 15 minute break and then a 45-60 minute concert by a featured artist or group (typically 9:15-10:30 pm).
Deep Cove Folk (DCF) is an informal group that has operated for 30 years through the efforts of volunteers who are dedicated to the idea that a monthly night of acoustic music in the relaxed setting of a small country church is a valuable and enjoyable aspect of our community. We are a non-profit organization, registered under the BC Societies Act and our goal is to take in sufficient money to meet our expenses and pay the musicians. Even the volunteers and the directors pay admission to our monthly concerts.
DCF was initiated in January 1989 by our founding mother, Jill King, and DCF has continued since then at the same venue, St Johns United Church, which recently received a heritage building designation by the District of North Saanich.
Deep Cove Folk is a partner in support of community based music on the peninsula and highly recommend the Folk and Fiddle Festival www.folknfiddle.ca.
COVID-19 In these present times
Hello Deep Covers!
Deep Cove Folk restarted our regular second Friday of the month concerts at St John United Church in September. We are aware that there is concern by many people of the risk of transmission whenever people congregate. We are following the guidelines presented by health authorities and encourage the wearing of masks and make them (and hand sanitizer) available at the door for anyone who needs a mask. Another precaution we have made is, for the present, to discontinue the tea, coffee and goodies break at the midpoint of the night as we felt the risk to attendees in close contact in the poorly ventilated downstairs area was significant. We realize that the break was a very enjoyable aspect of out concert nights and with time and changing circumstances we may re-instate it when the circumstances change.
Thank you for your understanding.
We need help!
If you would like to help with any aspect of DCF, contact any of the present Deep Cove Folk volunteers on our Contact Us page or at the concerts on the second Friday of the month.
