Chloe Overton & Hatful of Rain

Without question the best acoustic band for miles.
The best in roots music delivered with stunning instrumental virtuosity and vocal harmonies - but chiefly memorable for Chloeís captivating songwriting.

Sunday 6th Nov       Dan Walsh and Will Pound
Apologies but this event has been wrongly listed in the Folk Diary as an Open Floor night.  There will be floor spots, as usual but we are very much looking forward to our guests as well.  Will Pound and Dan Walsh are two of the most exciting and unique young musicians on today's music scene and produce a unique sound on banjo and harmonica.  Combined with their fine songs the result is an enthralling mix of funk, bluegrass, English, Scottish and Irish folk, blues and even Middle Eastern sounds.  Prepare to be astonished by stunning vocals, frailing banjo wizardry and sounds you didnít think were possible on harmonica and their ability to encompass an amazing array of musical genres.
Admission £7 (members £5). Under 21s free.

Sunday 13th Nov        Victoria Vox  
Another young performer who we are looking forward to hearing.  Victoria Vox, has been warming the hearts of her audience across the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Her songs are honest, moving, but also light-hearted. Vox has become known among the ukulele community for her refreshingly modern and rhythmic ukulele technique. Since 2006, she has been a highlight at ukulele and folk festivals around the world, where she both performs and gives workshops to the budding ukulele player.  
Admission £7 (members £5).  Under 21s free.

Sunday 20th Nov       Barron Brady
Barron Brady comprising Ros Brady and Si Barron are contemporary songwriters and interpreters of traditional English folk song. They uphold the richness of the British folk tradition with superbly crafted self-written songs and fine interpretations of English folk song, all beautifully sung with great sincerity and with impeccable musical accompaniment. Their beguiling lyrics draw upon the stories, legends and folklore of the South-West.
Drawn to strongly narrative songs with subjects ranging from Devon legend to contemporary rural reportage they invite the listener to accompany them through strange landscapes whose denizens include coffee drinking Mermaids, corn mowing Devils, flying highwaymen and disappearing Hedgerows.
They have a dynamic acoustic style combining joy and verve in performance with an assured stage presence garnered from five years of performing nationwide.
Simonís ballistic fingerstyle guitar complemented by Rosalindís harmonium and whistles underlines their harmony singing.

Admission £5 (members £3)

Sunday 27th Nov        Open Floor
Everyone is welcome to perform songs, tunes and readings in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The club has its own bar and plenty of free parking.
Admission £2 (members £1)
