    As so many ticket holders were unable to make it through the snow to see Andy Johnson's show on Friday 1st February he has arranged to perform it again tonight. Those of us who did brave the weather and got to see the show, his fifth homage to English singer-songwriter, poet, wit and raconteur Jake Thackray, had a brilliant evening and would strongly recommend it to everybody. The show is free for those of you who had tickets but couldn't get to the club.

     

    Jake Thackray's work ranged from satirical to bawdy to sentimental to pastoral - all of which Andy captures and interprets with great skill, enthusiasm and respect. This this time the show includes a healthy seasoning items form the pens of oyther witty songwriters including Noel Coward and Jeremy Taylor.Tickets are £12 on the door; £11.00 in advance. Further details can be obtaine fby emailing  Andy directly at ayjn252@yahoo.co.uk..

    Admission £12.00 on the door, £11.00 in advance
    (There is a reduction of £1.00 on these prices for 2018/19 members of the Music Institute)

      Literally booked at the club by "public demand"! Many of the club's regulars first came across Cohen at Sidmouth Folk Week and we were all blown away by his fantastic singing and squeezebox playing. He graduated from the University of Leeds in 2017 with a First Class Honours degree in music plus an additional award as the most outstanding student in his faculty. You will understand why when you see him.

     

    Cohen has been a musician since the age of 6 and took to squeezeboxes in his teens. He  has since developed into a fine player of both the melodeon and anglo concertina. He is also a well-regarded singer and in 2014 won Bromyard Folk Festival’s Future of Young Folk Award for singing. He has been performing at club's and festivals for over a decade and initially reached his widest audience as a member of Granny's Attic.

    Cohen's solo repertoire consists mainly of traditional songs with accompaniment from anglo concertina or melodeon plus the occasional traditional tune and  unaccompanied song. His style, approach and repertoire is rooted in the English tradition, however material and influences from Scottish, Irish, American and European traditions are also present in his performance.

    He is one of the best young musicians we have seen in a very long time - "a future folk megastar in the making".

    Admission £11.00 on the door, £10.00 in advance
    (There is a reduction of £1.00 on these prices for 2018/19 members of the Music Institute)

    Having enjoyed our most successful and enjoyable seasons of come-all-ye's in 2018/19 we look forward to welcoming back our regular singers, musicians and wordsmiths - as well as meeting as many new local performers (and maybe an odd choir or two) who wish to share their favourite songs, tunes, poems and tales. As ever Tim Stansfeld will be hosting the evening and making everybody welcome and inviting everyone who wishes to take the open stage in warm and friendly surroundings. Audience members are also extremely welcome as they are an essential ingredient to the success of the evening.

     

    Admission £3.00 on the door (to cover the rent)
