One day we’ll be back at Mum’s !



Granny's Attic gave us a great evening in February - varied, spirited, brilliantly performed songs old and new.

We kicked off 2019 with two of our finest, Nick Siepmann and Ian Coles - well done lads!

October -

Pete Morton

Our favourite troubadour returned!

September -

the Big Green Bookshop Campfire Crew

Oka Vanga, the Hertford duo, gave us a lovely evening in June.

Steve Turner, our genial guest performer on 3 May, gave us brilliant songs with a focus on the sea, accompanied on the guitar, concertina and ukelele.

In April Cosgrave and Banks gave us a great evening of their own and traditional pieces played on many instruments.

On 1 March Stuart Marson, one of the finest singers and most original songwriters on the UK folk scene,gave us a genial evening with a fine range of songs and stories.

The Cruel Mothers,Carol Burtt and Sarah Jones, gave us a great evening of songs from the darker side of the folk tradition. Theirstunning harmonies and sensitive guitar accompaniment (and the fact that they are perfectly nice people!) softened this plunge into themes of betrayal, death and madness.


To kick off 2018, Tom Lewis gave us a splendid  evening of songs and stories of the sea old and new, accompanying himself on button accordion and ukulele.

The Goat Roper Rodeo Band

The band gave us an enormously energetic evening - "wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies". Some people not previously country fans were quite won over!
