Subject: Folk on a Sunday Lunchtime

Does anyone know of any Sunday lunchtime folk clubs, sessions or singarounds in and around the London area.

Around 1980 I remember the free folk in foyer, lyric theatre, and in later years a music session at the Riverside Studios - both Hammersmith.

Much more recently, late 90s or early 00s a session in Kingston.

I also have vague memories of pubs that occasionally welcomed singing or music, but nothing long term.

A bit out of my may - I suppose a Sunday afternoon is not the best day to enquire as everyone who knows where to go will be there :)

Hi SPB, and thank you Richard for the pointer. Fab Club is just the other side of the Thames at The White Hart, Kings Walk, Argent Street, RM17 6HR. We have a singer's club on 1st and fouth Sunday afternoons in the back room. Guest plus singers on 3rd Sunday,in the pool room at present (back bar). We are considering moving the guests into the back room as it can get a bit noisy from the football. We have just set up a Myspace... Myspace/Fab Club Grays where you can see a list of gigs, and here is the website.

Come to the Crayford Arms on 9th November (See thread)Train from Charing X/London Bridge and it's walking distance from Crayford Station. For traditional musicians only there's the 1st Sunday session at London Bridge.

Are there still Sunday sessions in London, near Borough Market? There certainly were regular ones fairly recently.

Thanks for the info - I cant make the 9th as I am dropping a friend off at Stansted. Grays is a bit of a trek from West London but I can try to get there occasionally.

Maybe some like-minded people could start something up inthe West London/Middlesex area.

There's an Irish music session in the Crown in Cricklewood on Sundays from about 3.30 to 6 - bit later than lunchtime I know.
There are others but they tend to be a bit later - more Sunday tea time than lunchtime! Helen

Irish sessions in South London can be located via a search on the Session website www.thesession.com
I go to The Kilkenny Tavern on a Tuesday evening. There's a great variety of players - usually around 20 playing all sorts of instruments including pipes and ukelele (not at the same time!) Its a good crowd. The pace is steady not slow but not too manic either and is broken up with a few songs. It's next door but one from South Wimbledon Tube. Starts around 9.30pm until late.

Blythe Tavern in Catford on a Thursday

Various in Lewisham (not sure how many are still going!)

Kingston, Richmond and Tooting

Newish one in Gypsy Hill (Sundays I think)

Cheers

Sarah

I'm confused here. I tried searching thesession. Despite offering London, London South, Catford, Lewisham etc etc. it came up with nothing. In the end I googled Irish music sesssionsin South London and came up with several.

Go to the session site
Choose Sessions
Then Search
Just fill in Country = England
Town = London

Leave the other boxes blank and you get details of nearly 100 sessions

Cheers

How about NON-Irish ones?

There was a monthly Klezmer one I may still have the details of. Nothing AngloFrancoScottish?

I've heard of a couple of Scottish sessions but wouldn't have any idea where they currently are or who to ask.
