10th July Hot spot: Ian Stewart - a chance for one of our "irregulars" to strut his stuff. Ian has entertained us with his stylish take on contemporary and bluesy songs and his impressive guitar accompaniments and solos. We look forward to hearing more.....

Their wide-ranging repertoire covers everything from deeply trad. to bang up-to-date contemporary folk with a few excursions into other genres along the way.

25th Sept Jeff Warner - a transatlantic favourite who has a huge store of traditional American songs and tunes, many of which share their roots with songs from these islands.

Jim Bainbridge picked up his first melodeon for a fiver in a junkshop in Twickenham in 1964 and has played D/G box ever since. He picked up his songs from all over the place but his native North-East and Ireland are well represented in an eclectic mix. Add a few tales and you have the ingredients for a great night's entertainment.
