    COHEN BRAITHWAITE-KILCOYNE
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    Those of you who saw Cohen at the club a couple of years back, either solo or with Granny’s Attic, will agree with The Living Tradition magazine’s description of him as "captivating, bold and striking". He is at the forefront of his generation of English folk musicians as both a powerful and commanding singer and a masterful player of the Anglo concertina and melodeon.

    His repertoire is rooted in the English folk tradition, celebrating the age-old musical heritage of this broad and diverse land, with a particular interest in the music of the West Midlands, where Cohen spent many of his formative years. Traditional ballads, songs and tunes form the basis of Cohen’s material, but with a smattering of baroque, renaissance, ragtime, and music hall thrown in for good measure.

    TOM LEWIS
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    This will be Tom’s long overdue second visit to folk club. A charismatic and popular singer and musician, Tom is a 24-year veteran of Her Majesty’s Royal Naval diesel submarines and the chances are that a number of the sea shanties you thought were traditional were in fact written by him. Songs like The Last Shanty (A Sailor Ain't A Sailor), Sailor's Prayer (Send Down A Dove) and Legend (Marching Inland),

    If you like songs and stories of the sea, new and old, you’ll certainly enjoy an evening in his company and when a performer with such a wealth of chorus songs as Tom meets up with a brilliant chorus singing audience like the Music Institute’s the combination is exhilarating. In addition to his own material, Tom draws on his naval experience to provide authenticity when singing traditional sea songs.

    Tom’s repertoire, from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background, recruits his audience for a voyage by turns reflective, dramatic and humorous, With songs that have become folk standards known and sung wherever great choruses ring out Tom's strong performances engage audiences with the spirit of the sea.
