Welcome to our autumn 2016 concert programme. We have tried to ring the changes and much of it is based on recommendations of our regulars. I am very excited by the programme having seen many of the performers at fesitvals.

Greg and Ciaran were explosive when I saw them at Towersey last year and such such greta fun. Bob Fox I heard when I went to Warhorse. Whose was that phenomenal voice I asked. It was tremendous ... it was Bob's. Phillip and Hannah blew me away at Priddy last year and Jane Taylor's CD Compass is my all time favourite CD. I never stop playing it.   

In addition to our concert programme we hold singers/ musicians nights on the second Tuesday of the month, 8.30 at Grove Sports Centre. Very welcoming and ideal for those who enjoy a traditional folk night.


We look forward to seeing you


Best wishes David

21 May 17 Moor Ross and Rutter

location: Tithe Barn 8pm

Sun May 21  Moore Ross and Rutter Tithe Barn 8pm £12


Moore Moss Rutter is a contemporary trio consisting of Tom Moore (violin), Archie Churchill-Moss (melodeon) and Jack Rutter (guitar and vocals). Their material is often developed from traditional English folk tunes and pieces of their own compositions, which are heavily arranged using elements of folk, jazz, classical and bluegrass .


A series of remarkable gigs has heightened the sense of anticipation around the reunion of Jack Rutter (Seth Lakeman Band), Tom Moore (False Lights) and Archie Churchill-Moss (Beyond the Marches) in the trio that won them the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. The intervening years have seen them play with some of the biggest and best acts in English folk music, and now they reconvene to release the follow-up to their acclaimed, eponymous debut album. Widely regarded as three of the best players of traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. Their music features ancient traditional material from Britain as well as newly composed tunes and songs, and focuses on their own movements from the countryside to large cities, and the contrasts that come into play, liberally sprinkled with the sound of modern electroacoustic grit. This trio has as much to do with contemporary music as it does with folk or baroque.

3 Sep 17 Teacups

location: Tithe Barn 8pm

Sun Sept  3 Teacups Tithe Barn 8pm £12

The Teacups sang at Nailsea Folk Club last year and the audience was blown away with the virtuosity of their singing and the ringing harmonies of their arrangements.

 Alex Cumming, Kate Locksley, Rosie Calvert and Will Finn met whilst studying on the Folk Degree at the University of Newcastle and formed The Teacups in 2010. It’s an age-old format – a quartet of singers: two men, two women – performing an age-old collection of songs. But The Teacups are new, they’re young, gutsy, and their debut album, One For The Pot, revels in the vibrancy of youth, and all that heartache, or confusion, or euphoria, that goes with it.

22 Sep 17 Saul Rose an James Delarre

location: Tithe Barn 8pm

Sun Sept 24 Saul Rose and James Delarre


James Delarre and Saul Rose combine thrilling fiddle performances with some of the finest melodeon playing. Inspired by more than fifteen years of appearing on the folk music scene, this new duo harnesses all the subtleties of traditional music while producing an exciting and energetic display of musicianship. Together they produce a full range of melodic and harmonic flavour with flowing melodies, rich harmony and considered vocal delivery. As firm friends the joy with which this pair experience music together is hypnotic, captivating and addictive.
