Concerts to come... 3


April 26th - Ribble + Support  GERRY COLVIN solo   £15

The concert this night will be slightly different from the norm. Topping the bill,  Ribble are a delightful duo, currently based in Salisbury, but hailing from Lincolnshire.  Adam and Pete play fiddle and guitar, playing unique versions of traditional and contemporary tunes with a strong Celtic influence.  It will be hard to keep your feet still. They had a large section of the audience up and dancing at the New Forest Folk Festival last year.

Opening the evening, we have a rare treat in the form of Gerry Colvin playing solo! We could not end the last club season ever without including our very first artist, and club favourite,  in a slightly unusual spot for him. Giving us the chance to see a different side to the musical phenomenon that is Gerry Colvin, solo, up close, and intimate. You will get a whole hour of Gerry solo, just him and us!


May 24th - PJ Wright and Guy Fletcher (Patrons)  + Support Simon Loake    £15

Personal friends and patrons of the club for many years, it is only fitting we have one final outing from the inimitable PJ Wright and Guy Fletcher.  We have had them as Little Johnny England, TRADarrr, and many times as a duo. They always delight and entertain us with an eclectic folk and folk rock mix.

Opening support is from the giant of the folk world, Simon Loake. Simon's name may not spring to mind as he does not gig solo very often but he has been a part of many big name bands at odd times over a lifetime of top class musicianship. He is an outstanding guitarist and sings well too. Expect some rock, folk, and maybe blues. He has recently released a new CD!


Our final closing concert...

June 21st - Banter + support Tor (trio)      £15

We wanted a night to remember to end our 21 year run of regular club nights, and after much thought and discussion we opted for the musical 'fiesta' that is 2 sets of Banter.

Simon Care, Nina Zella, Tim Walker, and Mark Jolley play up a storm of music, covering Morris dance tunes, delicious ballads, trad folk songs, maybe a bit of reggae, the odd self penned song, with guest appearances from assorted extra instruments! Take a deep breath before they start, you'll need it to keep up!

To get you ready for Banter, we opted for a new support band whom some of you may have come across at a localish concert or ceilidh, Tor are normally a five piece band but are playing as a trio this night, with a guitar and Uilleann Pipes. They play a variety of Celtic style music to get your feet tapping and hands clapping.


Thank you for over 21 years of musical delights with your support.

We hope to see you at assorted folk festivals over the summer and autumn months.

Do come and say hello.
