Hi Penny
I know this is a little 'out of area' but as you allowed me to join SEFAN ....
The long redundant folk club in Watford has been re-opened.   The opening night of 'Folk at The Pump House' was last Friday and was a great success.   There is more info about the club, including the Autumn/Winter programme, at , and if you want to know more ask Carrie at carriecharles_at_hotmail_dot_co_dot_uk .
On Friday 5th December, 'Folk at The Pump House', in conjunction with , presents FAUSTUS in concert - Paul Sartin, Benji Kirkpatrick and Saul Rose are three of England's finest traditional musicians - together they create a rare and precious musical atmosphere, both joyful and moving in equal measure, a band with genuine chemistry!
The evenings run from 8 til late on Fridays in the Colne River Room at The Pump House, Local Board Road, Watford, WD17 2JP.  A warm welcome and a well-stocked bar await!
