Coming Events

15th November 2019

Singers Night.

Folk music has always been about people telling their stories, either in song or in rhyme. The Singers Nights has long been the conduit for this and without the “Guest Act,” this allows the local talent , which is at the heart of the club, to present more of their repertoire and to discuss the song in more detail. The evening is both relaxed and entertaining and we welcome all to come and listen or to take part. There are no barriers to talent, it is just a way of engaging more people in the tradition. Play, Sing, Recite or just sit back and listen to the local talent.

This will be Jamie’s second visit to our club this season following his appearance with Gilmore Roberts in September.
