April 24th

Pete Kelly

Plus Emma Langford

A wonderful singer-songwriter from the Black Country. Who will forget his songs about Barmouth and Arizona? When performing solo, he performs a selection of his own work along with songs from a wide variety of his favourite writers, new and old. He tries to leave people with some new memories but also to make sure they have a good sing along too.

Tonight he will be bringing along his friend Emma Langford from Tipton as his support. Expect a really enjoyable evening.

May 1st


Plus Matt Sayers

Coracle: Paul Hutchinson, Karen Wimhurst and Anna Tam bring together the talents, imagination and creativity of three artists with vastly different backgrounds, who have come together through their love of traditional music cut through with experimentation, boldness, humour and risk.

They came together during lockdown, when individually they were experimenting beyond their usual repertoire , they were inspired to take things further. Coracle is the result.

May 8th

Edwina Hayes

Plus Emily Slade

We are absolutely delighted that Edwina has agreed to come to the Club. Her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing stages from Glastonbury to the Royal Albert Hall.

Dividing her time between the UK and America, Edwina's second home is Nashville where she is much loved as a songwriter and artist.

Plus Lauren South

Born in Edgbaston and living in Kings Heath, Rob has been singing and playing the guitar for many years, forming the bands Dangerous Girls in the 1970s and Well Always Have Paris in the 1990s.

In between he has found time to record and tour with Everything But The Girl, Boo Hewerdine, Eddi Reader, Black and a host of others who have all influenced his music.

Lost Notes Trio

Plus Marianne Mills

We are delighted that the Lost Notes Trio have agreed to close our spring programme. Always a favourite at the club This local  group are a real treat! They are (partly) based in Moseley where politics, drunkenness, misery and glee abound. It makes for a great night out! Oli Jobes likes folk, Ben Mills likes jazz and they contend to cover a wide spectrum of music from RnB, funk, blues, country and folk-a fast-paced set that is always high on fun and audience engagement., So be ready for a fabulous evening of fun, dance and music.
