Music for today ....
.... because of yesterday

A selection of the very best of music and
dance with its roots in the tradition

  • Our next club nightt:
    Friday 5th November 2021 - 8.00pm
    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    Unfortuntely due to our decision to maintain social distancing as far as possible in the Assembly Room, for the safety of the performers and audience, we are having to impose a strict limit on the number of tickets we can sell with the result that we cannot currently meet the demand of everyone who wishes to return to the club. Hopefully at some point in the new year we will finally emerge from the worst of the pandemic and the folk club can return to how things were at the beginning of 2020. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Our next Come All Ye:
    Come All Ye
    Friday 12th November 2021 - 8.00pm
    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm

    Although a number of our "regulars" are beginning to attend other events in the "real world" on Friday nights, including folk clubs, our monthly online sessions are still attracting good audiences and excellent performers. Our singers, musicians and wordsmiths continue to entertain us with an eclectic mix of songs, tunes and tales, their repertoires often influenced by the customs, occasions and events associated with the month. Thus in October we had songs autumnal and supernatural and two cracking yarns from Roger. Our performers will no doubt have a wealth of traditional and contemporary songs and tales about the onset of Winter and Bonfire Night to choose from in November! Come along to hear their selection, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll definitely be entertained.

    Tim, Jackie or Lawrence will be hosting the evening and welcoming everyone, performers and audience members alike. It's almost as good as the real thing and it's a delight to see a screen full of familiar and new faces and hear some very enjoyable music and tales. Bring your own drink!
