A big thank you.....

to everyone who turned up and joined in with an outstanding evening with Carolling & Crumpets last Thursday and particularly to John Kirkpatrick for giving such a magnificent performance.



And apologies to.....

all those of you who could not get in after the HOUSE FULL signs went up early on and to the 20 or so performers who did not get a chance to do a floor spot because we were so inundated. Perhaps I could remind them (and anyone else who would like to perform) that we have one of our very occasional Open Nights with free admission next Thursday 6th December.


And our next big night.....

will be on Thurs. 13th December when we will be presenting ANDY IRVINE. Come early to be sure that you get in. Doors open at 7.30pm. There is a track of Andy singing and a video clip of him performing at the club's Myspace site.

And should you have missed John Kirkpatrick, and live within hailing distance of Guildford, he will be Carolling with his Crumpets on December 14th at the Music Institute club. However, there were only 7 tickets left on last mention at close of play at the club last night, so you'll have to get your skates on (how's that for a seasonal allusion?). Have a look at the Electric Voices website

Thursday 17th January
THE TITANIC SYNCOPATORS with PETA WEBB
The star of the Titanic Syncopators is Peta Webb, one of greatest and most versatile singers of classic old songs in the UK. Her numerous solo projects, duet collaborations and memberships of innovative groups and bands (in various genres) have resulted in many published recordings and albums.

With the Titanic Syncopators Peta sings a range of distinctive songs from the 1920s and 30s, selected for their striking melodies and evocative lyrics, most of which are well known and loved, though we have found some less frequently performed items which our audiences enjoy. Among others we like the music of Fats Waller, the Gershwins, and Walter Donaldson, and people say we "sound authentic like old records" (which we take as a compliment); but we are not deliberately trying to imitate other bands. What we do is what we do.

Tony Engle - saxophone, Bob Winquist - violin, Alan Ward - cornet, Charlie Hewlett - guitar, Peta Webb - vocals, Tony Russell - tenor guitar, Andy Simons - guitar, Ned Clack - tuba

Quite a departure to hear a band like this in a folk club - but also a very exciting evening in prospect

Like all appearances by The Titanic Syncopators, they went down very well at the Royal Oak in Lewes last night *
Next Thursday 24th January, we move on with Europe's finest Old Timey music band, THE NEW DEAL STRING BAND
The New Deal String Band was formed in 1966 by Tom Paley and Joe Locker, two banjo-and-guitar playing ex New Yorkers living in London. The band was active for many years with various fiddle players and then went into hibernation until the 1990's when Tom's son Ben took up the fiddler's slot.
Tom, who has been playing guitar and banjo since the 1940's, was a founder member of the New Lost City Ramblers. Both Tom and Joe have graced the UK scene with their authentic Old Timey music for many years
Hear the band singing Down of Penney's Farm and see a video of the Tom's amazing guitar playing at the Royal Oak's MySpace site.

Nice to the club room looking so full last night for such an excellent performance by THE NEW DEAL STRING BAND. It was particularly pleasing to see TOM PALEY on such good form; amazing singing and playing of fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica and autoharp from a man who is only a month shy of his 80th birthday!

Next Thursday, 31st January, we shall be presenting the first appearance in Lewes of THE BOAT BAND. They send this message:-

After playing for many years, trawling the venues of Britain and beyond, THE BOAT BAND have picked up a huge and varied catch of tunes: Creole, Caribbean, gospel, Cajun, Irish, zydeco and blues-not much slips through the net.If it can be played on accordion and fiddle (or trombone, washboard, trumpet, banjo etc), if it touches the heart and moves the feet, it`s in the repertoire.

Our latest venture takes the band away from the cajun twosteps of South Louisiana to the dance music of northwest England, drawing on the rich tradition of some thousands of tunes collected by and from the musicians of Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. Our favourite current source of good tunes is the Langdale fiddler William Irwin. and The Boat Band have released a CD called "A TRIP TO THE LAKES" featuring these tunes.

Come along to this gig and enjoy the English tunes and songs nestling in alongside the already eclectic offerings, whether it's at an all out ceilidh, a strictly cajun dance or a sit-down concert. The line-up is based on: Kate Barfield (fiddle, trombone, vocals), Greg Stephens (guitar, banjo, vocals), Tony Weatherall (accordions, vocals), plus occasional special guests.
See you there.
Love XXX The Boat Band XXX

***TWO CHANGES TO ADVERTISED PROGRAMME***

BAJALY SUSO
Stop me if you have heard this one before, but..... we have just heard from that people who were organising his British tour that they have failed to get a British entry visa for Bajaly Suso even although they had managed to obtain a British Work Permit, so his advertised appearance on September 11th will have to be cancelled.

DAVE SEALEY
A mix up in arrangements with another folk club organiser means that the advertised appearance by Dave Sealey on September 18th will also not take place.

Replacement attractions for both 11th and 18th September will be announced here as soon as they have been finalised.

They have actually managed to come up with an original approach to presenting a folk club evening with the dancing in the incredibly talented pair of Rosie Davis and Kerry Fletcher incorporated fully into the other elements of the performing.
An incredibly tight, scintillating, invigorating performance. Don't miss a chance to see Jigjaw.

Five unsolicited emails received so far about last night's performance by the Sultans of Swing included the following statements

"Enjoyed the Sultans last night - we'll be back"

"Another great night with the Sultans."

"Hi Vic, great to see you both last night - what a fantastic evening!"

"Cracking good evening with the Sultans tonite"

"What a cracker! I've seen them both before lots of times but never
together. What a double act! So funny, so musical."

Who knows - there may be more to follow. People haven't come home from work on Friday yet! Interestingly, three were also asking for more details of a song that had been sung one of the resident singers - so we must be doing something right!

Apologies to the very many people who turned up only to see the HOUSE FULL sign up before the event started last night. Those who did get in were treated to a quite magnificent performance by NORMA WATERSON, MARTIN CARTHY and CHRIS PARKINSON.

The advice we had given to the very many people who had phoned or emailed about the evening was if you are in the pub before 7.30 when the doors open, you will be able to get in and I am glad to say that this was the case for both capacity nights, this week and last week. It is also the advice that I would give to people who want to see DAVE SWARBRICK (March 19th) and LEON ROSSELSON (March 26th)

In the meantime we know that we are in for great things next Thursday:-

Mar 12th * £5.00 * JIM & LYNETTE ELDON
The pride of Yorkshire! Jim is rightly regarded as one of the icons of English music with his singing and fiddling and Lynette is a champion clog dancer.

A great evening last night with Jim Eldon presenting the best of the raw authenticity of his performance and Lynette Eldon in outstanding form in her exciting rattling clog dancing.

Next Thursday should also be a corker:-

Mar 19th * £7.00 * DAVE SWARBRICK
We are delighted to welcome back the legendary fiddle player for another night of his tunes, songs and stories.


Early arrival advised! If you want to be sure of getting in, be in the pub by 7.30pm when the doors open.

THE PALINKA BAND April 30th CANCELLED

24th March - We have just received this message from Maria of The Palinka Band:-

Sorry we have not contacted you for a long time, but there has been some unfortunate incidents. A member of the band, Katalin, became sick and had to return to Hungary for the appropriate cure. She is not likely to recover and hence return to the UK earlier than May. We all hope she gets better soon after which our band can continue playing, but while she is sick we can not make any gigs. This also means that we have to cancel the performance at The Royal Oak on 30 April.
We are really sorry to cancel this performance and I hope we can work together in the future. All members of the band is really sad to have this unintended break and we hope you understand.

A replacement will be announced here as soon as it has been arranged and a new date arranged for The Palinka Band as soon as that is possible.
