The next
Frittenden session at the Bell & Jorrocks is this Sunday, the 29th January, starting at 8pm.

This time our guest is the lovely pipes, whistles and flute player Chris Walshaw, well known for playing with various groups and bands including Angles, the Climax Ceilidh Band, Meridian, Zephyrus (The English Bagpipe Orchestra led by Jon Swayne) and Stocai.

Chris is a Frittenden favourite and this will be a great opportunity to hear a little more of what he can do.

Our guest is a tunes man, but the format we follow at Frittenden is designed to make sure there's time for the rest of us to play tunes, sing dance and tell stories - or anything else that's entertaining and legal that you might have to give us.

The Frittenden sessions are an entertaining old fashioned and traditional pub evening with songs and tunes, and plenty of variety and good humour. If youíve got a song, a tune, a stepdance or story, enjoy joining in with a chorus or just like listening in the bar, please come along. We go on until itís time to close with Nellie Dean the old way Ė just as people used to before the telly and the computer.

We look forward to seeing you on the night!

Gavin and Julie Atkin

Thursday 26th January
Debs Newbold
re-tells "King Lear"

The Electric Theatre Guildford GU1 4SZ

Debs Newbold is a remarkable young performer who leads workshops at the Globe Theatre and is storyteller in residence at Cecil Sharp House. This stunningly re-woven and passionately re-told version of Shakespeare's tragedy, specially commissioned by The Hay Literary Festival, received critical acclaim:
"Debs pulled me into her world soaked with Shakespeare's language...she made this work her own, and with her unconquerable energy swept us right into the heart of the storm". - Emer O'Connor, StoryNight Diary

new Storytelling night for Electric Voices.


Friday 27th January
Walsh & Pound

The Guildford Institute, Ward Street (opposite Guildford Library), Guildford GU1 4LH

The folk club at the Guildford Institute (in Ward Street opposite Guildford Library) welcomes one of the hottest young duos on the folk scene on Friday 27th January, Dan Walsh and Will Pound. Remarkable young harmonica player Will Pound has been nominated the BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year Award 2012 and has already been awarded the best instrumentalist of 2011 at the Fatea Music Awards. Alongside ace clawhammer banjo player Dan Walsh ('The best banjo player I've seen in Britain' Don Wayne Reno, Hayseed Dixie) the duo's debut album has been nominated for a 2012 Spiral Earth Award.
Prepare to be astonished by stunning vocals, frailing banjo wizardry and sounds you didnít think were possible on harmonica.
