The Fragile Hearts /

Carole Palmer & Maria Barham


Buy now

The Fragile Hearts, a local two piece are well named. Their cello and guitar combination works perfectly, and is topped off with lyrics that veer from heartfelt to matters of the heart. They are something special.

Carole and Maria are old favourites at the club. Brilliant song-writing and great performances. Individually they are both tremendous. Together even better.

An evening not to miss.

Karen Pfeiffer & Paul Walker

Plus Joe Bayliss


Buy now

Whilst Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer are acclaimed for their image provoking song-writing, expressive vocals and authentic musicianship, they are frequently recalled for their warmth, humour and their remarkable ability to engage with their audience. Karenís natural theatricality and life affirming playful energy compliments charmingly with Paulís calm geniality and combined they magically turn a great performance into a real event.

The Twiddlers

The Twiddlers came to the club this spring and we were absolutely enchanted by them. What can we say?† The next folk super-group? - a lockdown project gone wild? Expect beautiful vocal harmonies, multi-instrumental carnage and traditional songs and tunes given a new lease of life with a lively and raucous performance. If youíve heard them before youíll be at the club. If not donít miss this opportunity!

Mad Jocks Christmas Extravaganza


Buy now

We end the autumn programme with the traditional Mad Jockís Christmas Extravaganza. As always we have no idea what to expect except a wonderful evening to end the year. Their music includes a blend† of† contemporary music, bluegrass and country with a generous helping of (politically incorrect) humour. Essential preparation for the rigours of a family Christmas.
