John & Di Cullen with Iris Bishop  

Mon 21 Sep 2015: John & Di Cullen with Iris Bishop

John & Di need little introduction to our audience, since they are residents of the club, and have guested here many times. Beautiful singing with sensitive accompaniment, we look forward to hearing them do a full evening again. Having Iris Bishop as well, one of the best accompanists around, is an additional bonus.

Sally Ironmonger  

Mon 5 Oct 2015: Sally Ironmonger with Brian Carter

Welcome return of this duo who cover a wide range of songs, profound and amusing, with many of local interest. Sally's songs, many self-penned, are accompanied by her husband's highly skilful guitar playing. Sally Ironmonger

Miriam Erasmus

Noted for her part in the folk revival of the 70s, she has a captivatingly beautiful voice with guitar accompaniment guaranteed to engage her audience.

Julie Bubbles  

Mon 2 November 2015: Julie Bubbles

"Bubbles" sums up the personality of this lady, who is noted for the sparkle of her performances. A mixture of folk and music hall songs is likely, accompanied by accordion and concertina.

Eagerly anticipated return of this Sussex based band, who perform skilful arrangements of songs and tunes with a multitude of instruments, including harp, serpent, bagpipes and two hammered dulcimers. The Twagger Band
