If you live within striking distance of Sheffield and find that time weighs heavily on you every second Saturday of the month, read on...

The Robber's Dog Folk Club opens its doors for the first time this coming Saturday, the 11th of September, at The Rutland Arms, Brown Street S1 2BS at 8pm. Handily situated a couple of hundred yards from the main bus and railway stations, and with an appealing selection of real ales on tap.

Sheffield city centre on Saturday nights has been a folk-free zone for decades now – but no longer. It'll be singers & musicians for the first few months, with probably our first guest(s) in December.

You'll meet a few Mudcatters there too...

PM me if you want any further info.

You are an hour away from me - just about reachable with a following wind - so you might see me sometime, but not this month.

Sounds great. It's quite a bit over an hour away from me too, but I'll be there as often as I can, Raymond - though it clashes with another club hereabouts (one of only two other decent Sat ones in the whole month) so can't make this month's.
Any chance of switching it to either first or fourth Sat?

We're pretty much locked into the second Saturday, to avoid clashing with the other Saturday clubs in the area (though I now hear that another second Sat club is starting up a mile or two away on the same night – nothing for twenty years, and then two come along at once!)

We have our own upstairs room — no disabled access, alas, as is so often the case.

There's good parking locally too, if you're driving.

Nice to hear from you all!

Hi Raymond

If you would like to add the new club to the Yorkshire Folk Arts Directory at http://www.yorkshire-folk-arts.com/directory/index.html
you can do so direct from the site using the form at http://www.yorkshire-folk-arts.com/directory/form.html

I can also add the information to our news pages if you can drop me a line at jim@yorkshire-folk-arts.com with contact information for the general public.

All the best

Slight objection to this statement comes in the form of Bright Phoebus at the boardwalk...

but otherwise, sounds great :)

Fagans not strictly a 'club' more a session. Definition of City Centre is elastic but I know what Raymnond means


I think a lot of older people ( the bulk of the 'folk' audience )have got nervous about walking in the centre and using public transport. If they can park it encourages them but they worry about vandalism.

That's why so many out of town clubs do OK but then drink driving regs have an impact.

When we kicked off as youngsters it was the city centre that gave the clubs street cred.


Publicity and a welcoming atmosphere may bring in the next generation without which it is the same old same old competing for punters.

Alas, it's a long way from Watford! Nonetheless, I wish you every success. Anyone who wants to start up a new venture in these trying financial times is to be cheered.
I think you are right to start it as a sing/tune session....And hopefully build it up from there.
Good Luck

Well, the evening was pleasant and delightful -- and well-attended, too (at least two dozen punters; we had to request more chairs... twice!). There was quite a range of performers, songs & styles to be enjoyed, including the above-mentioned Mr Waller (whom it's my misfortune never to have heard before tonight), whose performance was one of the high points of the evening for me; the other was listening to Kate Green (to whom I would be delighted to listen even if it only happened to be a phone directory she was singing...).

Also loved the club sign on the door to the function room -- oh-so-stylishly rendered (of course) and well worth a second (& even third) butcher's.

Congrats on a great start!

Went to Kelham island pub last Sunday early pm (got stuck in a queue at Grenoside) road flippin works!

Good luck to the club and I do hope that whatever the flavour of the day (tradionalist contemporary etc) that it works!

There aren't many Rays or Raymonds on the S Yorks folk scene – just enough to confuse people. Ray Padgett and I are often mistaken for each other. Not surprising, since we're both tall, sophisticated and ruggedly handsome – apart from Ray. But we certainly both play the anglo concertina, though not (so far) at the same time.

The Robber's Dog had its grand opening last night (last month was a sort of dress rehearsal). We filled the room again, and a merry time was had by all. Do you think this folk club idea will catch on? As a sort of X Factor for people who can't afford posh frocks, it could run and run...

Thanks to everyone who supported it. We're back on 13 Nov.

"We filled the room again..."
Now there's an understatement -- the place was absolutely packed (SRO at times)! Another evening of highly entertaining music, minstrelsy & merriment.
I think next time I may bring a folding chair or two, though...

I used to be at The Rutland on a Sunday evening before we moved away. Good beer etc, nice to hear it now has a club. Can't make promises but my responsible adult is away at the convenient time next month so might try and get down. Driving is apparently healthier than drinking in my local that night...

A bit of folklore regarding the pub. This is supposed to be the pub where Wilfred Bramble, "you dirty old man..." of Steptoe and Son fame, really was a dirty old man... according to the magistrate... A bit of useless information for you there.......

"A bit of folklore regarding the pub. This is supposed to be the pub where Wilfred Bramble, "you dirty old man..." of Steptoe and Son fame, really was a dirty old man... according to the magistrate... "

Well, if that wasn't true then, it is now. Folklore in action...

Mind you, I dare say we're more open-minded about people's carnal urges now than we were in the heyday of S&S. If Wilfred's ghost pays us a call on club night, we'll get a chorus of "When Irish Eyes" out of him before he dematerialises. Everyone gets a go...!

"Everybody gets a go"

I'll pass, if that's ok...

Folklore can start with interesting stories that would be stories then but less so now. Except of course he was a huge celebrity of his day and open mindedness takes second place to Fleet St outrage...

Nevertheless, I will have a pop at said song for him if you wish, assuming the words can stick in my head these days. Used to be able to learn words in a day and they stayed there. He may have to make do with "Pair of Brown Eyes" which at least has the advantage of I can sing it without an enforced "middle 8" whilst I try and remember the words.... And McGowan is, like his character, London Irish..

Hope to see you soon, albeit by a less silly name than the one I use on Mudcat....
