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
