are a friendly, mainly totally acoustic folk club.
Our Programme Autumn 2014
11th Sept Singers Night
18th Sept Les Elvin
25th Sept John Watterson: Fake Thackery
John's appreciation and love of Jake Thackray 's music is obvious to his audience. John’s performance is a celebration of the man that was Jake Thackray - his work, his genius and his very essence, an essence that the new age of music lovers are in danger of missing out on. Not an evening to miss!
A band that is growing so rapidly that I take pleasure in asking them back to the club - to find out what they are doing now! I think that the music has a dark, sexy and dynamic edge to it as well as a unique medieval tint … and that’s just Daria Kulesh (lead singer) -the rest of the band are equally dynamically interesting. An evening of music flavoured with vodka!
09/10/2014 Singers Night : Another night with the locals - and anyone who wants to sing. Or play. Or recite ….
23/10/2014 Liz Simcock (*) :
North London based singer/songwriter whose debut album 'Seven Sisters Road' received much acclaim in the music press. Liz cites a number of influences on her music from Christine Collister to Bob Dylan via Billy Bragg, Richard Thompson, Nancy Griffith and Eddi Reader, and whilst some of these influences can be seen she is a talent in very much her own right. If I could only see one artist in a year - Liz would be my choice.
Harbottle & Freya Jonas :
David Harbottle & Freya Jonas are based in the wilderness of Totnes. They paint pictures with their words and share stories of folk, auld and new. They are hardworking songsmiths who place emphasis on musical independence and originality, and they breathe new life into traditional English Folk songs.

Red Lion, Kirtlington - Folk Session - Saturday, 22nd November from 8pm
Hi, all; Hazel, the landlady of the above-referenced
hostelry, would love to welcome as many people as we can muster for a
one-off folk session - that might lead to more regular events - and has
asked me whether I can gather a few like-minded folk? Belchamp Morris
had a great evening there in the past couple of months and Hazel says
that the locals loved it and would like to try to do another musical night.
She'll provide a pot of chilli, or something similar, and we can run later into the night, or until the last one slides gently under the table.
Please, please, spread the word and get as many people there as we can; after all, when a good pub entreats you to turn up, why would you not, eh?
*Moose is of course the one singing in the deep basement of Sound Tradition - should be a rather good session! - Ed
