Once a month (and sometimes twice) the joint is jumping and what we guarantee is happy, smiling faces. Since Brookfield Nights began, some top names have passed through. Everybody has a ball and each time, a charity benefits as profits go to a worthy causes. Among those we have helped are:

ROKPA, the charity which does so much valuable work in Nepal with Tibetan refugees.

Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Trust, the hospital for wild creatures large and small in Ayrshire.

Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust

The Tsunami Disaster Appeal

Swarbaid, to help British folk legend Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention) get back on his feet after double lung transplant surgery.

African Youth Development Action Project, towards sports training initiatives for young people in Liberia.

Brookfield Nights may be popular with our regulars but musicians also enjoy our beautiful village hall as one of the better of the small-is-beautiful gigs in Scotland.

 
We aim to encourage more local communities to join with us to try and develop a circuit, using Brookfield as an example of what can be achieved in a rural setting.

In the past, we have been entertained by world-class performers such Huun-Huur-Tu, 3hattrio, The Stray Birds, The California Feetwarmers, The Mike + Ruthy Band, Furnace Mountain, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys, Front Country, Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards, The Hot Seats, Väsen, Chris Smither, Connla, Bronwynne Brent, Petunia & The Vipers, David Olney, Rebecca Pronsky, Laura Boosinger, The Wilders, The Wiyos, Woody Pines, Hillfolk Noir, Cam Penner & Jon Wood, Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, Chris Stout and Catriona McKay, Greg Trooper, Nathan Bell, Fidil, Justin Townes Earle, The Crooked Jades, Andy Fairweather Low, The Mountain Firework Company, The Classic Jazz Orchestra, The New Rope Stringband, Vatersay Boys, Fraser Fifield, Lollo Meier Quartet, featuring Tcha Limberger and many, many more.

What do they share in common? They all want to return, and some have indeed been welcomed back.

CUA



Since issuing their superb Songs of The Hollow album in 2017, CUA have gone on to become a band that has gathered in more praise than most from all the best sections of the media.

Awarding the album an 8/10 rating at AmericanaUK, top writer Jeremy Searle said: “This Irish trio stands right at the forefront of contemporary cutting-edge folk and even that description sells it a little short.”

Issuing a similar judgement for Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper had this to say: "At its finest, music should confound and amaze the listener, and this trio from Ireland have the luck - and the ability - to be one of those outfits who can pull this off."

Folkwords said, rightly: “Unlike anything else.”

As a result, there are many who cannot wait to catch the band in action and this will be their first ever Scottish tour.
