Who are we?
John Butcher and Kathy Dunn, together with John's wife Ros, started up Wimborne Acoustic in October 2002.
The club changed name to Wessex Acoustic after a move away from Wimborne.
After a few changes of venue (Wimborne, Broadstone, Corfe Mullen, Poole Quay, Upton, and Pimperne) we are now in Blandford.
The aims of the club are to bring top class live folk music to the local area at minimum cost. We are a not-for-profit club.
In Spring 2019 we started introducing Kitty Thorp into the team. Kitty will be compere on occasions, or doing the raffle, or on the desk taking money. She will provide a welcome injection of youth and energy and we welcome her input to decision making. Please make Kitty welcome.
An important part of the Wessex Acoustic Team, John's wife, Ros, provides accommodation and refreshments for our guests when required.
