Welcome to the November edition of Live On The Border, your monthly round-up of music on the Kent/Surrey/Sussex Border.

This issue comes out a few days into the month - and some of us have already enjoyed a fantastic evening on Friday 4th November when the Oysterband played their socks off to a sellout audience at St Edith's Kemsing. Those of you who missed out on tickets have some catching up to do...but just scroll down, there's plenty more to choose from in the coming month.

Folk at the Victoria Club

Paul Downes
Friday 18th November, 7.30 pm
Victoria Sports & Social Club, High Street, Lingfield, RH7 6AA

Sue Rule is your host for another fine evening of Folk Stuff at Lingfield.  Paul Downes can be counted among the greatest acoustic guitarists in the world, talents appreciated by those he has played with such as Phil Beer, The Arizona Smoke Revue, Pete Seeger and The Joyce Gang.

He is also a  great singer and talented songwriter, and a sensitive and yet fun approach to his live performances puts him among the most respected artists on the British acoustic music scene today.
