The Star, Church Street, Godalming - Mondays
Red Lion, Godalming - Wednesdays (at the moment, as far as I know)

Also I believe there are monthly sessions in the Abinger Arms, Abinger, but I'm not sure when in the month. The people who do the Godalming sessions will know.

And Kevin's number is also in the Surrey Advertiser gigs section.

I think Andy Johnson runs sessions at the Hop Blossom in Farnham - that said, the regular stuff that I know of is a fiddle practise, but I think there's the odd date for the other stuff.

Wednesday session was still in the Red Lion according to rumour and gossip a few weeks ago.

Just trying to guess who might be posting as Topsie...

I can't find Claygate in this week's Surey Ad What's On section, but it does mention a singers' night at the Dorking Folk Club at the Friends Provident Social Club, Pixham Lane, on Wednesday 16 February.

It also mentions Cranleigh Accoustic Sessions, at the cricket club on The Common, on Thursday 17 February (acousticran@aol.com).
You didn't say where you are in Surrey.

Cranleigh Folk club still has a monthly sing around at the Three Compasses in Alfold. Usually first Friday.

Run by Peter Skinner, whose email address is on my computer with the broken video driver. Details usually in Surrey Advertiser.

Across the border is Horsham Folk Club on a Sunday evening.

There's always the Anchor Folk Club in Byfleet.

The Wednesday Godalming session is temporarily moved to the Anchor (Godalming) for one more week. After that they will have to see if the Red Lion is available again (new owners, you know). We prefer the Wednesday session, as the Monday one in the Star can get a bit crowded - it's not a very big room, and the pub is quite popular.

Bazza, we're in Pyrford too. Are you the concertina player we met at Tenterden last October? Perhaps we ought to start something more local. There seems to be a desperate lack of pub sessions round here. We also go to the Anchor folk club in Byfleet as mentioned above, and it's a great folk club but not a session.

If you want folk clubs, you could try the Music Institute in Guildford. Not a session ... always have a guest. We have Jeff Warner next Friday (18th March). For more information see the Electric Voices website which will also give you details of the Jon Boden and the Remnant Kings gig at Farnham Maltings next Tuesday.

Hadn't heard the Red Lion had changed hands again. Much prefer the Star as a pub to either Red Lion or Anchor - granted the Anchors been through a couple of upheavals since I was last in.

Might wander down on Wednesday if I don't do 'advanced' Morris.

There is now a website listing the sessions in and around Godalming:

Great to hear there are sessions in Godalming - I was born and bred in this pretty little town and still have close friends in town (and 10 acres of coppiced chestnut up near Charterhouse which is cropped by someone else, but I try to visit regularly). Next time I'm down I'll pop in. (Ceilidhs in Godalming too of course).

There was a session at the Good Intent in Puttenham (my old local) - which is Hants, but only just - but I don't know it its still going. Is there still a session in Farncombe?

Tom

Old Vermin - Do you know if there is a music session at Hop Blossom? And when?

Hop Blossom:Andy Johnson or indeed the landlord would be the ones to know. I've once been to Andy's fiddle-class-based session there, redefined to include my guitar as quiet melody.

Think someone did mention to Andy the possibility of a more general session the other day.

If I hear anything....

Godalming: I recall the local paper writing recently that the Wednesday session is now at the Harrow in Compton.

Grin. Before the trees grew up I could see The Harrow across the fields from my bedroom! I was christened in Compton (pron 'Cumpton' btw). We used to walk to church through the beer garden, and l later it became a nice stroll for a pint.

Perhaps its time for a visit.

Hi Tom !
             Interesting that you were born & bred in Godalming !
I am descended from Joan Tribe ,or Trybe , who was born in Godalming in about 1560 ( which makes me a real "Southerner " , I guess ) , although later ancestors seem to have migrated (slightly) to Fernhurst and,eventually , Littlehampton . I was brought up in Midhurst ( I lived in Cowdray House itself !).

                  Roger ( in Oxted !)

Well, Bonzo , there was the "home field " , a practice ground next to Cowdray House itself ,and the polo pitches next to the ruins of Cowdray Castle ,which is also where point-to-point racing took place . The proper big matches took place some miles away , in the Ambersham / Horsham area .It was a fabulous place to be brought up at , though ; swimming pool , acres & acres of grounds to play in ,plenty of venison ,pheasant , partridge etc ,trout from the river Rother , school cricket & rugger ( no football allowed !) on the playing-fields in the shadow of the old Castle ......I'll stop now !
