This weekend is the start of the amazing Reach for the Bunting ceilidh night - likely to be busy, so buy your tickets online or get there early. Next week,Time Out recommended Maia & Nick Mulvey at the Old Queen's Head, and we've got This Is The Kit playing at Manero's in Dalston. Mark your diaries for the inaugural London Gaelic Voices Festival, the next in the series of intimate world music night The Honeypot, finish off the month with Spiro and Cliff Stapleton, and get your weekly free folk fix at the Three Compasses every Tuesday.
