This Week at Barleycorn Music Club

The Barleycorn Music Club is back and ready to continue bringing great music to all that want to listen in 2020.

At Barleycorn Music Club you can expect some talented musicians as it played host to various artists in the past, including Tony Fox, Albert Frost, Crimson House, Rowan Stuart, and many more.

The Barleycorn Music Club

The Barleycorn Music Club is all about promoting local, original music. While this isn’t exactly unique, what sets the Barleycorn Music Club apart is that it attracts a listening audience.

This is not a nightclub or restaurant where the live acts can sometimes become background noise. At Barleycorn, when you play the audience will quietly sit and listen to your set.

This is not an audience looking for a party. This is an audience who, above all else, want to listen to your music.

"Playing at Barleycorn for the first time was a weird experience. No one spoke during my set. No one moved around, and the only sound was my voice and guitar. It was surreal, but also amazing. It's definitely something every musician should experience at least once."

Club Nights

The club meets every Monday night at 8 pm at the Villagers Football Club. This is based in Claremont, Cape Town.

There are usually four acts per night. These acts range from new up-and-coming musicians to established legends like Tony Cox. Entry is R40 for non-members and R30 for members.

There are snacks available and there is also a bar for drinks.
