Little Rock Folk Club is dedicated to preserving the link between the musical traditions of the Old and New Worlds.
Little Rock Folk Club was started in 1989 by several diehard fans of U.K. and Irish music in the Little Rock area and is Little Rock's oldest 'bridge' between the Old and New World musical traditions. During the intervening years we have produced numerous concerts by some of the best and most enduring musicians in that genre. This includes strictly traditional artists and songwriters/composers working in that genre. LRFC is a 501(c)(3) organization. We welcome sponsorship, donations and input from others sharing our interests.

Back in May Ashley wowed a packed LRFC with a magical concert along with Irish master guitarist John Doyle and asked if they could bring their Christmas show in Dec; after considering the suggestion for almost 2 seconds the date was penciled in, but, as every busy person knows, Life will play around with one’s plans and thus it came to pass that conflicting obligations prevented John from being able to play the concert – he sends his regrets and was greatly looking forward to returning to LRFC.
But, as one door closes lo! another opens and in place of guitar maestro John we are delighted to present Irish harp master, composer, TV presenter Cormac de Barra whose resume includes 5 group and 4 duo albums with Moya “The Voice of Clannad” Brennan, 3 albums with Ashley Davis, 5 with English singer/songwriter Hazel O’Connor, and 5 other releases of solo and/or duo/group albums in addition to playing with such luminaries as The Chieftains, the Irish Harp Orchestra, Cathy Jordan (of Dervish) Galway singer, composer, songwriter and record producer Julie Feeney and with his brothers Fionan and Eamonn. At 17 he performed for Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko in their palace at Akasaka, Tokyo, also present was Irish Nobel Laureate, Seamus Heaney. In Scotland he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with Hazel O'Connor. In addition to performing, as a TV presenter Cormac has presented the traditional Irish music series, Flosc, on TG4, Ireland's Gaelic-language TV channel, which was awarded Best Music Series by Irish Music Magazine in 2002. He is a presenter of the arts series Imeall on TG4.
Ashley Davis is a rising star adding 6 albums to the Celtic canon over the past decade. As creator of beautiful, lush melodies sung with a gorgeous, romantic style, Davis has also frequently teamed with current (Sarah Watkins) and eternal (Paddy Maloney) stars in her popular output. NBC’s Today Show described her songs and sound as “new music springing from ancient roots” and was recently named one of the most influential Irish-Americans under the age of 40 for her work within this field.
