11th-No club  

 
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..  
25th- Closed    

February..

1st- Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke
Fran & 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
A 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....

 
March...
7th- TONY HALL
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.....

14TH- MERIDIAN
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..
