It's a long shot, but are there any clubs or singarounds in Brighton this coming Saturday or Sunday? Unmiked and traddie-friendly preferred, but I'm not too fussy - I am limited to Brighton (and Hove), though.

Judging by the Sussex Folk Guide, no but it's only a fifteen minute train journey and a ten minute walk at the other end to the Lewes Saturday Folk Club where you will get a warm welcome on Saturday night.

If you click the "Local free sessions" link, you'll find a couple of events advertised on Sunday. I know the The Royal Oak, Lewes session is happening. Not so sure about The Lord Nelson, Brighton. Check with the organiser.

Pip - there's an acoustic session at the Bull in Ditchling on Sunday evening. Not just trad, but "rags, reels and airs" as well - tunes and songs. If you've no car but would like to come, I can pick you up and take you back to Hassocks station (main line to Brighton) - or collect you and take you back to Brighton after the session. 20 minutes from Brighton (the way I drive...). :-)

PM me if you're interested.

Hope to see you in Lewes, Pip. I can't get to the Sunday sessions as we've got a band practice.

Will - that's a very generous offer, & it would be good to meet up again, but I think I'll have to decline; I really need to limit myself to Brighton & immediate surroundings.

There are two Irish sessions (mostly tunes) on Sunday where you might get a song if you ask:

The Bugle, St. Martins Street, BN2 3HG (Afternoon)
The Geese, Southover Street, BN2 9UA

Two pubs right in the town centre have acoustic bluegrass / old timey music on Sunday evening:

Mrs Fitzherberts, New Road, BN1 1UG (session)
The Foundry, Foundry Street, BN1 4AT (several pre-booked acts)

Our guest performer at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club tonight is the excellent Hector Gilchrist, who sings Scottish traditional and traditional-style songs with guitar. He's bringing Sue Graves & Steve Poole, who make up the band Soiree from Twickenham to add some harmonies. Admission is £5 and there's no membership scheme.

As always, floor singers & musicians are very welcome; we start off with a few join-in tunes for any instrument. I'm MCing this week, but don't let that put you off.

Hector on his own is fabulous, and when he gets together with Sue & Steve as Soiree you're in for a rare treat! Get along to see them if you can....

Well, he said, I'm back (in Manchester) and when I was down south I ended up going... nowhere at all. (Saturday evening, the Radishes collectively ran far too late for me to think about going out - at 8.00 we were still thinking about getting something to eat. Sunday afternoon was out, as consultation with Mrs R established that my absenting myself on five hours in the middle of the day would not be appropriate. Sunday evening looked hopeful, but in the event all there was was a couple of sessions in central Brighton which definitely weren't running, plus one possible in Kemp Town which seemed like a long way to go on spec.)

I shall definitely get to Lewes next time.
