Subject: Folk in Kingston-on-Thames ?
From: Murray MacLeod
Date: 24 Jan 10 - 06:42 PM

An old friend is coming over from the US in August to spend ten days in Kingston-on-Thames, and has asked me to find out if there are any folk clubs, singarounds, etc. in the area.

Any advice gratefully received, TIA.

I was speaking to Paddy Marchant a few weeks ago, and he reckons there's nothing in KoT nowadays. Teddington and Twickenham still have something, I believe.

I see the Twickenham Folk Club don't have any meetings in August.

I had forgotten that August is normally a blank month for English Folk clubs, being festival season and all.

There should be a bit in "Folk London" but I don't have the web site.

The Folk Orbit site includes some venues in Middlesex and Surrey:

Folk London website

Folk Orbit seems to be a little out of date with some info unfortunately and doesn't show very much for the KoT area. I'm sure it depends on the respective organisers to keep it updated.

We live not too far from Kingston so may be able to help a little, what dates in August please?

And there's The Ram Folk Club at Claygate although their programme stops at July which rather suggests that they also close for August.

There's an Irish session on the first Tuesday of the month in the Canbury Arms on Canbury Park Rd in Kingston centre. Well there is at the moment but it's worth checking if it's still on in August. Not really a singaround but definitely participatory if your friend wanted to sing or can play.

I suspect you'll have to travel a little to find anything rootsy near Kingston.....they do have occcasional acoustic/folk acts at the Grey Horse Pub (which also hosts the Ram Jam Club) but you'll only see confirmed schedules much closer to the time. Ralph McTell has made appearances doen there in the past (with Alan 'Daydo' Davies' occasional band 'Good Men In The Jungle'). That's going back a few years though.

I can also confirm there won't be any TwickFolk events during August....we reconvene the first Sunday in September when Richard Shindell will be the guest.

I don't think Folk Orbit is operative any more.

The printed Folk Orbit is no longer operative, but I believe Colin is still keeping the website up to date.

Nice link to the Ram Club site, Hamish. However, it hasn't been operating out of Claygate for some while now - it's based in Hinchley Wood, which is actually only a very short distance from Kingston. However,the Ram closes down at the end of July, as do most clubs in the area, because of impending festivals such as Sidmouth, Broadstairs, Whitby etc, and re-opens in September.

A little bit further afield down in Guildford (round about 15-20 miles) we shut down even earlier (end of May), but in our case it's because the club room becomes unbearably hot in June and July !!

Hop on the train and give him a day (or two) out at Broadstairs Folk Week!

Thanks for all the info so far, I am sure we will be able to get something for her to go to, even if it means travelling.

She isn't a performer, more of an avid listener ...

It's only just dawned on me (being a boring old pedant, I have to comment) ... Kingston's full address title is actually Kingston upon Thames.... and furthermore it is not, and never has been, a hyphenated name (unfortunately a common error ). Strangely though,Walton-on-Thames a little further south is both on and hyphenated.

A whistling emoticon would be good here.

will this do?
(:-!)


BTW Mr Red's RoW list of lists includes links to Surrey and Martin Nail's large list of lists.

Folk Orbit covers a lot, which is a problem when keeping things up to date. My solution is to datestamp all information.
