18th- Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner
Delightful harmony singers, both with terrific pedigrees. Apart from their wonderful singing, Lynne & Pat are two of
the most unashamedly hilarious performers we've had at the club- your sides will hurt..
McGillivray & Mike BurkeFran & Mike are two of our more popular guests, and perform a
heady mix of haunting, original, self-penned songs along with emotionally charged blues and traditional songs, from Britain
and the USA..
8th- Singers' Night
night celebrating twelve years of the Wandle Delta String Band. With an eclectic repertoire ranging from French Polkas and
Mazurkas to Morris dances and Old Time banjo waltzes, they've been mainstays and openers at the club all this time- specially
for all those who've asked to hear more of the band..
15th- Maggie Boyle & Ben Paley
Brilliant Irish singer, flautist and bodhran player Maggie- who sang the themes in the film Patriot Games- teams up here with
Ben's flashing bow and spine-tingling fiddle playing, ranging from laid-back Old Timey to a touch of Eastern European Klezmer.
22nd- Mick Sands
Geordie/Irish, singer Mick has one of those spine-tingling voices, the traditional 'sean nos' style being his forte. He has
just released is first solo album- entitled 'The Ominous And The Luminous' ["A masterclass in subtlety and restraint- this
offers musical soul food." John Regan, Folk Roots magazine] and also performs the songs of his North Eastern home with enormous
vocal skill. Mick is a talented flute and bouzouki played too, and is in great demand as a writer and arranger of music for
theatre, film and television..
29th- Closed'KARAOKE'- BLEUUGH....
Tony is recognized as the most accomplished
two-row, English melodeon player in the known world, and was, by sheer chance, the first happy soul to enjoy the 'last Friday
of the month' Karaoke downstairs; how he chortled. Actually, Tony- ever laid-back and professional- waived it off and, by
the third display of atonal screeching had us all rolling about, helpless with laughter.
Really though, it wasn't funny,
so we've got Tony back, with his laconic wit and songs of North Norfolk: The tide come in.....
This exciting and talented trio play mainly English and French dance
music. Chris Walshaw plays English bagpipes and whistes, Anna Tabbush plays fiddle and sings and Richard Jones- happy refugee
from the R&B circuit- plays button accordion..
7th- Martin Carthy
One of the most important and exciting, professional
artists on the UK scene and has been for many years..
