Now you've mentioned that place,it just doesnt have the atmosphere that an intimate setting with other personal factors can produce.
Its a hard gig there unless your world famous.
Have you done afloor spot there since?
Hope yuo'll spot for us at the 'Spotlight' club where 4 floor spots gets you a 'Spotlight' Gig with a listing in unicorn!!!What other club can make that offer?
Chris Flegg has joined our team of residents.Who? Come and find out.
Bet that place is nowhere near as friendly as |Barton even, certainly not better than Mike Blair's Bedford.

Hey JB

Martin & me, saw Dangerous Curves at Hitchin Folk Club

And we did a floor spot on the same bill

Unfortunately it was as Santa and friend

But a gigs a gig

Dangerous Curves - girly humours all right but it was stretched a bit and there was not enough of their magical harmony singing

Sorry John got this too late for the grand reopening hope it went well. However I did say the second best in Bedfordshire which snorbans and Herga are not, so I could still be correct.Please remind me what is on where me and Ross may come and play.And when is Ron and Les playing. We may also be able to do you a little deal for you and Big P G to come and play.Should see you Sunday at John Kirkpatrick. If not see you soon anyway. Martin Dent

Yes we sre talking St Albans Folk-song club that reconvenes tonight at the King Harry.8.04

The Greek dancing was indeed a bonus, but we were gone from the pub long before 4am - well, some time before anyway!

I now have a stinking cold - strange phrase that....

Definitely going along on Jan 13th to see Cloudstreet - they're Fab!

George was still in recovery last night at the king H

Dont talk to me about traffic lights I got more hassle about traffic lights last month than any other issue, any way back in the seventies I thought there was a folk club in The white hart hotel in ampthill so Hovering Bob was telling me.
Reason for Ampthill Acoustic = AA might be easier to publicise it we do have blues as well as folk and possible some Jam sorry jazz Cllr (at work)

Planning at least 3 unusual additions to the repertoire for tonight, partly to avoid me being bored hearing me do the same stuff, and partly because Mike Blair will be there - and I know which songs he likes.
Planning and Practicing are two different things, of course...

GUEST, I wouldn't plug in for less than 250 audience - and even then I prefer a mike for the guitar to actually plugging in.
I, too have occasionally heard some material - generally from Londoners trying to break into the Home Counties folk circuit - that might fit your description of "soft core pop", but not that much. And as Hamish said, Herga, Maidenhead and Windward would have none of that anyway.
Tell you what: Ignore labels like "acoustic" for an evening, and come to Ampthill tomorrow night. If at the end you feel your journey was wasted, I will personally refund you your petrol, beer and entrance money; say about £20.
And if you decide that it wasn't wasted, you buy all three of my CDs (at Mudcatter prices, £20 for the three), and review them in your magazine.
Up for the challenge?

Guest: if you know Maidenhead, Herga and Windward folk clubs - where George is resident - you would know that he wouldn't survive too long if it was soft core pop. And when you know that Vin Garbutt and other folk (with a capital"F") luminaries cover his songs, you're left in absolutley no doubt.

From the steady stream of "acoustic" CDs that I get for review I know exactly what is meant. The sort of act who thinks that "folk" just means plugging an acoustic guitar into the PA.

Is this the same club as the one advertised in the local folk press as "Ampthill Acoustic Club"? I know the "F" word puts people off but I never bothered sampling it as I like "F*lk" music and can't stand the sort of soft core pop that is marketed as "acoustic".
