Another good evening was enjoyed at the March folk club when Grey Wolf, Joe Watson and Dave Taylor, Mice in a Matchbox, Andy Dwyer, Calibria and Roger Penwill entertained. Unfortunately Deborah Rose was unwell and not able to perform, but Jim Allen and Martin Thomas of Grey Wolf performed a fine set, a fine taster for their concert with Deborah at Brimfield on 16th May.
A record audience enjoyed a cracking evening in February, so thanks to all that performed: The Jolly Chaps Band, John Mosedale, Michaela Gaskarth, JimJam, Jackie Lyness, Terry Tandler and The A49ers (Lite). Special thanks go to JimJam for standing in at the last minute for The Hatchetts who were unable to perform due to illness. The Hatchetts will perform later in the year. The Jolly Chaps were at last able to perform at full-strength as a six-piece ensemble with the welcome return of Pete Sandall.
The January Folk Club was a great start to 2020 with excellent performances by the line-up of Mice In A Matchbox, Arthur Hyde, The Rotundas, Andy Dwyer, Calibria and Roger Penwill. As a new departure, this motley bunch rounded off the evening as an ad hoc and un-tamed ensemble leading the audience singing of The Leaving of Liverpool and Wild Rover with great gusto. Good fun.
Thanks to all the performers and audiences who made it such a good and varied year for the folk club.
For the first half of 2020 the following acts are booked to appear on various club nights:
Jim Allen, The A49ers, Calibria, The Cherrystones, Andy Dwyer, Michaela Gaskarth, Grey Wolf, The Hatchetts, Hergest Moon, Arthur Hyde, The Jolly Chaps Band, Mice In A Matchbox, John Mosedale, Deborah Rose, The Rotundas, Roger Penwill, Sue Stevens, Terry Tandler, Mair Thomas, The Vegan Vampires, Steve and Julie Wigley.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all !
The December Folk was a jolly affair featuring for the first time at the club the delightful Vegan Vampires, who were warmly appreciated by the audience. The popular Huw Knight and Viv Bell were back, along with Arthur Hyde, Jim Allen, Roger Fryer and The A49ers. The evening was ended with great gusto by the Jolly Chaps Band.
The November Folk Club was a great evening performed to a full audience, which contained a good number of new faces. Hergest Moon were on top form with a varied set; Mice in a Matchbox performed half a dozen excellent songs; Jimjam were now a splendid quartet; Joe Watson was accompanied by Dave on bass uke; Terry Tandler amused as usual and host Roger Penwill started the whole evening off.
For the October Folk Club it was good to welcome back the popular couple from Derby, Steve and Julie Wigley. That night also saw the first appearance at the club of The Rotundas, performing old songs from Birmingham and thereabouts and, if you missed them, you can catch them when they return for January. Everyone was on good form and we also enjoyed Arthur Hyde (with Brian Addis), Mice In A Matchbox, Andy Dwyer and The A49ers.
On 7th September The Flying Toads performed an excellent Saturday night concert in the hall. The audience were treated to virtuoso performances by all four band members as they played through a varied selection of both lively and lyrical Irish and Celtic tunes. It was a very good evening.
Missing from the September Folk CLub were club regulars Mind the Dog. Pete Sandall recently had a bad bicycle accident and his injuries will take some time to heal so it will be a while before we can enjoy him and Caro performing again. We wish Pete a speedy recovery.
Pete was also missing from The Jolly Chaps Band, who nevertheless gave a good bit of wellie to some old favourite sea and Irish songs.
John Mosedale treated us to some excellent new songs and Terry Tandler was his usual sprightly self.
It was good to welcome back the folk club Bandangle, who provided a popular end to the August folk club. Also good to have return was Sheena Wieckowicz, now equipped with two handpans to play and entrance us.
An excellent Saturday night concert by club favourites Mice In A Matchbox was held on 8th June. Over two hours of Sally and Jim's fine singing and performing, together with tales of life on their yacht Chaos, was enjoyed by all.

It is recommended that you come along to an evening as a member of the audience and have a chat with Roger before offering to perform at a subsequent folk night.
Performance slots are usually 15 minutes or 4 songs, whichever is the shorter. It is aimed to finish the evening by 10pm. There is a 15 minute break mid-evening.
We are always looking to welcome new performers!
