Hi Everyone. Its a busy period for the Folk Club just now on:


Friday 3 Nov we have Christina Alden & Alex Patterson, two multi-instrumentalists and songwriters from Norwich. Their music is rich with intertwining harmony, sensitive accomplished musicianship and a creative song-writing style that is both delicate and moving. They recently completed a 23 date tour supporting Show of Hands.


Fri 24 Nov the hugely entertaining Huw Williams is at the Ringers. A superb songwriter,  fantastic guitarist and a clog dancer to boot. Some of you may remember him from the very successful duo Huw and Tony Williams.


Sat 25 Nov The Barnstormers POSTPONED


Fri 15 Dec The Harry Browns. They do not perform locally very often and a number of people were unable to get tickets when the sang at the church in March. This concert in the Barn will be a mix of beautifully arranged songs of the sea which are rarely performed with rich harmonies and some rousing shanties. Just £10 a ticket!


Fri 22 Dec Jim Causley performs a heart-warming Christmas special in the atmosphere of the historic Barn and is supported by the fabulous Bristol Folk Singers.



So there is a lot to choose from as well as our monthly musicians and singers nights at the Grove!

22 Dec 23 Jim Causley: Christmas Special
location: Nailsea Tithe Barn 8pm

JIM CAUSLEY  supported by the Bristol Folk Singers


More than simply a folk-singer, multi award winning singer-songwriter, musician and proud Devonian Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer and during the past decade Causley has been nominated no less than six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, last year he was nominated as “Singer of the Year” at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, he won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award in 2014, presented his own folk music show on BBC Radio Devon and in 2015 he worked with BBC TV historian Dr Sam Willis to create the music for his show 'Highwaymen, Outlaws and Villains' and was asked to perform his song about Dartmoor tin mining 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special. 2017 was also the centenary of Jim’s relative; the celebrated Cornish poet Charles Causley and award winning filmmaker Jane Darke made a specially commissioned biographical film about the poet which aired on BBC4 TV on 1st October as part of the Centenary celebrations. The soundtrack to the film was composed entirely by Jim and featured music from his 2013 album ‘Cyprus Well’ of musical settings of Charles’ work.

Since the release of his debut album in 2005, Causley’s unique voice and persona have helped him become one of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. A prolific collaborator, Causley is hugely admired for his work with iconic groups The Devil’s Interval and Mawkin:Causley as well as playing, touring and recording alongside Waterson:Carthy, John McCusker, Eddie Reader, Graham Coxson, Shirley Collins, Michael Morpurgo, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame and many more. He was described by Mojo Magazine as “the finest singer of his generation” and they put Forgotten Kingdom in their Top Ten Folk Albums of 2016 list. Westcountry father of folk Geoff Lakeman described Causley as possessing “A voice in a million” in a recent interview in the Western Morning News, some accolade indeed!

19 Jan 24 Reg Meuross: Holocaust Memorial Day North Somerset Fund Raising Event
location: Nailsea Tithe Barn 8pm

This is a special event all profits going to the Holocaust Memorial Day ​North Somerset

Reg Meuross is  true modern troubadour
Masterfully accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s most celebrated writers. Stories that need to be told; struggles that need to be known; injustice that needs to be uncovered; social conscience that needs to be celebrated – his music has an unrivalled power to reach and move the listener. After 14 critically-acclaimed albums, Reg continues to prove how highly relevant his songs are, whilst reaching new audiences with consistently spellbinding performances.In April this year Reg releases a new song cycle Stolen From God, focusing on the transatlantic slave trade – uncovering its’ hidden history from a South West England perspective.Reg has also recorded Fire & Dust, due for release later this year, a song cycle that delves into the life story of Woody Guthrie. A  journey into the heart and soul of one of America’s finest folk musicians. Highlighting racism, bigotry, corruption and inequality.

Bryony Griffith and Alice Jones

Well-known on the grassroots scene for multifarious adventures with different outfits, this pair pitch together their fiddle and guitar and passionate vocals with winning vitality on a vividly enticing bunch of traditional music from their home county of Yorkshire. No fancy frills here – we get songs of fratricide, coalmining, betrayal, cockfighting and drinking, delivered in all their raw glory. Honest, wholesome and thoroughly enjoyable.

26 Apr 24 Leveret
location: Holy Trinity Church 8pm

Leveret is a unique collaboration between three of England's finest folk musicians.  Andy Cutting (button accordion), Sam Sweeney (fiddle) and Rob Harbron (concertina) are each regarded as exceptional performers and masters of their instruments.  Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity.  Leveret’s music is not arranged in the conventional sense and the trio rely on mutual trust and musical interaction to create new settings of their repertoire in the moment, with no two performances alike. Their playing is relaxed and natural, drawing audiences in and inviting them to share in music making that is truly spontaneous and yet deeply timeless.

 This concert is being held in the beautiful acoustic of Holy Trinity Church

Fiddler Sam Sweeney was the 2015 BBC Folk Awards Musician of the Year and the inaugural Artistic Director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble.  He is known for his work in Bellowhead and The Full English, and his solo recordings including 2022’s Escape That.  Box player Andy Cutting, a three-time BBC Folk Awards Musician of the year, is a compelling solo performer and works with Blowzabella, Topette, Anne Niepold, and Roger Daltrey.  Concertina wizard Rob Harbron leads the English Acoustic Collective Summer School, released his own solo album Meanders in 2019, and is known for his work with Emily Portman, The Full English and Emma Reid.


Leveret will celebrate 10 years on the road in 2023 with Forms, a new album featuring new and traditional tunes played with the band’s trademark interaction and inventiveness.  Leveret's music is firmly rooted in the English tradition but sounds fresh and new and over the years their intimate presentation style has charmed countless audiences, helping the trio build a loyal following and demonstrating the enduring appeal and endless potential of the folk tune.  Listeners new and old can expect incredible musicianship and compelling presentation from a band at the top of their game.
