"Lea Nicholson & Naomi Randall play acoustic and electric odd folk, originals and covers to the light of the silvery moon. An array of instruments and vocal harmonies that will knock your socks off."

I first saw them play at the Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell last October. They introduced one of their songs "The Rest of the Day's Your Own" with the words "We have promised ourselves that if we ever get this song right, we will stop playing it." I hope that they have not got it right yet as it was very enjoyable.

We will have two talented newcomers doing floor spots starting at 8:30. Free entry, good food, friendly pub.

Some European Folk Before Brexit

Na-Mara are Hertfordshire-based duo, formed in 2006, comprising Rob Garcia, (guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin & backing vocals), born in London of Spanish descent, his father being a child refugee from the 1937 Guernica bombing, and Paul McNamara, (vocals, guitars) born in Middlesbrough, writer of all the original lyrics on their last album. Performing English translations of songs from Breton, French and Quebecois traditions; and their take on traditional tunes from Brittany, France and the Spanish Celtic regions of Asturias and Galicia.
http://www.na-mara.com

“One of life's certainties, thus far, is that any music produced by Na-Mara, be it live or recorded, will be of the highest quality and guaranteed to involve subjects and themes of compelling interest. Their latest recorded release, Sisters & Brothers, does nothing to contradict that assertion, indeed it would be fair to say that this offering reaffirms their status as one of the most talented duos around……By any standards, Na-Mara are one of the outstanding duos on the contemporary music scene…” David Pratt, FATEA, 13th April 2019

Vincent is on a summer tour of European folk clubs.   
http://www.vincentcross.com

"Vincent Cross' new song cycle brings together early Irish-American ballads, and old-time mountain banjo with recently composed and discovered traditional songs around and about the infamous 19th century, Irish-American gang leader James 'The Rooster' Corcoran. Corcoran was known for his 'caustic tongue and ready wit', he was often stereotyped tabloid fodder for the newspapers of the 1800s. Many of the songs were written using historical documents as primary sources, and structured to resemble broadside ballads of the era. If you've ever seen the movie Gangs of New York, then this would be a musical accompaniment to the rogues, pimps, murders and thieves that inhabited New York City in the 19th century."

Fraser Nimmo at the Colindale Folk Club, Monday 21st October
Please note THIRD Monday of the month!

"Fraser Nimmo is a Scottish singer, songwriter and actor who combines traditional songs with his own material in an organic melange of Celtic musicality. His songs cover the whole gamut of human experience and are delivered with flair, wit, compassion and serious digital dexterity on guitar and banjo." - http://www.frasernimmo.co.uk

"Fraser Nimmo's self-effacing humour and presentation belie a serious songwriter who delights in both aspects of his craft" - Ralph McTell

“Fraser Nimmo was a super opening act on one of our lengthy winter UK tours. Right from his opening song he had the audience in the palm of his hand and joining in on the choruses in true folk tradition. Lovely songs and banter and nice guitar playing too. If you get the chance to see him do.” - Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention

Just to reiterate, we are switching from our usual second Monday of the month to the third Monday (21st) to fit in with Fraser's schedule.

We will have a special guest amongst the floor spots, with one floor spot still available. We start at 8:30 sharp, there is free entry, good food and a friendly pub that won the Best Local in the Great British Pub Awards 2019.

Graeme has a great voice, he needs no amplification. He will be singing all sorts of folk songs including sea shanties and music hall numbers. There will be choruses a plenty so bring your singing voice. His previous two visits to the club were great evenings.
