Barleycorn’s principal function is to promote & present the best local, original music. Over the years, the Barleycorn has played a role in the musical careers of a number of now household names. David Kramer recorded his first album ‘Bakgat’ at the club in 1980 and others who’ve enjoyed our support include Amapondo, Flat Stanley, Freshly Ground, Steve Newman & Tony Cox amongst a very long list!

Run by a group of hard-working, unpaid volunteers, the Barleycorn has proved its worth and continues to fulfil its purpose to create an awareness of the amazing musical talent which we have in abundance in this city and South Africa. If you are a musician and you would like to play contact us for more info.
