Just a reminder that today is the 2nd Tuesday of the month so our monthly English tunes session takes place tonight at the Plough. We start at 8pm. Easy tunes played slowly for the first hour or so, anything goes after that. All acoustic instruments welcome. Admission free.

Our Sunday club nights continue with a varied programme of guest nights over the next few Weeks.

This Sunday 14th March we have Mai Hernon

Mai was born in the heart of Coleman country in County Sligo, Ireland to a musical family.

She is developing a fine reputation as a superb singer of traditional songs in the Irish Tradition and this evening is a rare chance to hear her in action in London.

 On 21st March we have Tom Lewis

 It's about time we had an evening of sea songs and there's no better exponant of the art than former sub-mariner Tom.

 Now resident in British Columbia, Tom's songs range from life on board H.M. ships, through the loneliness and lure of the sea to traditional shanties and classic nautical poetry, often accompanying himself with button accordion or ukulele.

Then on 28th a return for Tom McConville

Tom, primarily known as The Newcastle Fiddle Player, is one of the leading fiddle players of our time. A virtuoso musician and fantastic singer, his rich and warm voice makes his interpretation of traditional and contemporary songs greatly admired by singers throughout the world.

And he won Musician of the Year in the 2009 BBC Folk Awards. About time too!
