Geff & I will be in the UK Feb 10-23.
Other than Gainsborough, any suggestions of sessions, folk clubs, etc? We'll be mostly around Kent, London, Bath, Cotswolds, & we like driving. We play old-time fiddle, banjo, guitar, uke, etc., sing the occasionally amusing songs, call dances, &, when my back isn't messed up, I clog.

I know there are a few Mudcatters out there who know us - I used to live in Bath from around '82-96, and Chicago before that. I've played at Moles club, Eastbourne Folk fest, Cheddar, Priddy, etc, and Geff used to be a regular at the London Singer's Club in '83-'84. It would be fun to do a floor spot or two while we're over there, but we'd also just like to get together with friendly folks and play some tunes.

What sessions / folk clubs / etc are happening during that time? Any suggestions are welcome!

This thread may be of interest.

(Feb 18 - March 8: Debby McClatchy will be touring with "Appalachian Magic" (formerly the Mountain Music Gathering), including other musicians, Pete and Ellen Vigour, Arnie Naiman, and Dick Harrington.)

I'll be at a few of the North-West gigs. They don't seem to be heading south till after you're gone - unless you can stretch your trip?

All the best
Ross

Thanks for the link, it would be fun, but I doubt we'll get up that far north. Debby lives pretty near us in Northern California, we've driven up to jam with her a couple of times, and we'll hopefully be seeing Pete & Ellen at Clifftop again this year.

We're not looking just for old-time music, it's what we mostly play, but we'd love to catch some local folk clubs & Irish sessions & pretty much any live traditional music.

I saw there's some kind of session at the Dog & Fox in Bradford-on-Avon. Does anyone know if there's anything else going on in or near Bath?

Kate Lissauer is resident in Bath, works with a group called "Buffalo Gals". There's a gig-list and contact page on the website. She and her partner were running an excellent pub in Bath a couple of years ago (may have moved on since) where music events were a regular feature. The Arc arts centre in Trowbridge also ran some good music events.
