  • Morrigan
    Friday 24th February 2023 - 8.00pm
    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm
    MORRIGAN
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    Morrigan impressed many of us with their a capella harmonies when they performed as part of our online Mistletoe Cayoz (Christmas 2021), so much so that we booked them at the club for May 2022. Unfortunately the gig had to be postponed due to ill health so, after a long wait, we are delighted to finally welcome the quartet to the Assembly Room.

    Their music is a blend of traditional and contemporary song, some self penned, delivered in four-part harmony. The name Morrigan (a figure from Irish mythology and translated as "great queen”) originates in the band's initial all female line up. The current four piece, which adds male voices to the mix, was formed in 2010 - however they have all known each other and played together for over 20 years through their mutual involvement in ceilidh bands, folk singing, morris dancing, theatre and music education.

    Admission £13.00 (member £12.00) - Tickets must be purchased in advance

    ALICE JONES
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    This will be Alice’s third visit to the club and her reputation will precede her. Living Tradition magazine said that she “sets musical standards few established artists could match... just stunning” and one of the few that could, John Kirkpatrick, said that “not only is she a remarkable singer, musician and step dancer but her between-song chat was so funny and extremely entertaining”.

    The Guildford Institute's Bechstein grand piano is guaranteed an airing on on the night as Alice, who hails from Ripponden in West Yorkshire, accompanies herself on piano, as well as guitar and hambone body percussion (watch this YouTube clip to find out what this is). She know how to wring every drop out of the notes she plays on the keyboard (see her arrangement of Tennyson's Crossing The Line in the clip above) and nothing is wasted. Her arrangements are put together and executed with laser precision to create songs that border on the spiritual.

    Alice also plays the clarinet, whistle and is a dancer specialising in Appalachian clogging as well as other forms of traditional percussive dance. Her background is deeply rooted in the English folk tradition and the music that she makes instantly reflects this strong influence.

    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm
    SANSOME & QUINN
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    In an exciting new collaboration between two leading lights of their generation of traditional singers, George Sansome (Granny’s Attic) and Matt Quinn (Dovetail Trio) sing traditional folk songs from the British Isles, both unaccompanied, and accompanied by mandolin and guitar.

    Their well-blended voices and close harmonies create a warm, enthralling sound and their English folk instrumental styles complement each other perfectly. Quinn is known for his solo work focusing on traditional songs from Sussex, and is a skilled performer with a distinctive voice and sprightly mandolin style. Sansome, who also performs solo, is a deft guitarist with a rich, sweet voice.

    BRIAN PETERS
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    As those of you who have seen him on his umpteen previous visits two the club will know, Brian Peters is one of the English folk scene’s great all-rounders - a compelling singer and an outstanding multi-instrumentalist on squeezeboxes and strings. Brian is one of the country’s best anglo-concertina players, is just as good on melodeon, and plays guitar to a high standard. He has also recently added banjo to his instrumental repertoire.

    Well known for enthralling performances of Child Ballads and other songs from the English tradition, Brian adds beautifully-played squeezebox instrumentals to a repertoire full of variety, fire and humour. He also has a deep knowledge of the history behind the old songs. Brian has played most of the major folk festivals in Britain, and works all over the world, including regular tours of the USA and several appearances at the Australian National Folk Festival.
