Tomorrow night (24th) on BBC Radio 2 from 10pm Paloma Faith presents "A Musical Map of East London". The production company came to Walthamstow Folk a month or so back and recorded but how much, if any, was used I don't know.

Will report back for those who may wish to listen again on iplayer!

Well we got a reasonable few minutes. It's on the iPlayer here our bit is about 33 minutes in but I'd say it's worth listening to the lot for context and the range of music presented.

There's a bit of me introducing the evening and singing then a short edited interview, edited as they did need to fit other things in the hour ;-) behind which sounds of the club can be heard including my co-organiser Russ Chandler playing banjo. Amongst the range of music the things I knew were Wilton's Music Hall, The Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston and Rough Trade records so we were in good company, and Paloma's nice comments at the end of the show almost made me blush!

And today's Guardian listed this in the top 5 London Music pubs (readers choice) today.

Ye Olde Rose and Crown, Walthamstow

Although one of the Olympic host boroughs, Walthamstow hasn't seen much of the transformation that's happened in Hackney, Tower Hamlets or Newham. And it hasn't become hip either; pubs there are still pubs, not places for upmarket food. This pub remains stoically old school. The back room is a theatre that plays host to comedy nights and the Walthamstow Folk Club, where socialist songsmiths play rabble rousers to a beered up Camra crew every Sunday (who voted it East London Pub of the Year 2011).


Must be the Olympic effect! BTW not sure what night the paper visited as the "back room" Theatre and Folk Club is upstairs!

Jolly sporting of you to allow Mr Chandler to play his banjo in the programme considering the abuse you always heap on his head (and his banjo machine heads). Joking apart - congratulations on getting the club on the air. Looking forward to your September sessions.

Well the producer had the good grace to play my interview talking over the banjo playing!
