Friday nights at 8.15 pm

at The Royal British Legion, Blandford Forum, DT11 7AD

(unless otherwise stated)

The Legion opens at 7pm - club doors open by 7.45pm (subject to sound checks) Concert starts 8.15pm

Wessex Acoustic welcomes guests as well as members, but please note you all need to sign in as visitors to the Legion on the special Folk Club list which will be at the entrance to the function room. To facilitate the membership/guest licence arrangements, and ensure we have enough seats, it would  be a big help if you  book your tickets ahead,  but you can also just turn up on the night without pre-booking, assuming we are not sold out.

There are no concerts in July and August while we enjoy a summer of festivals and talent spotting!

Our next club night is.....

SATURDAY Sept 1st   - Ric Sanders Trio + Anna Bass & Ray Taylor

Welcoming back the amazing fiddler from Fair port Convention, Ric Sanders, along with  Vo Fletcher and Mike Gregory who make up Ric's Trio.

Who knows what exciting mix of musical magic these three master musicians will bring us? Last time they astounded us and had people up dancing. The infectious rhythms and tunes made it hard to sit still.

 

Supporting Ric and co. we welcome back the delightful duo of Anna Bass and Ray Taylor performing their own melodic contemporary folk.

Sep 21st  - Colum Sands + Mel Langton

The soft spoken Irish singer/songwriter/storyteller that is Colum Sands makes a welcome return to the club. His humour is highly infectious yet gentle, making fun of the quirks of the Irish nationality.

 

Supporting Colum, we welcome singer/songwriter Mel Langton for the first time.
