12th Mar Pete Shepheard & Arthur Watson have a wealth of songs gleaned directly from traditional singers they have known. Originally from Gloucestershire, Pete has lived for many years in Fife: he is a noted song-collector and plays melodeon. Arthur is originally from Aberdeen and now lives in Perth: he plays whistles large and small. Their shared enthusiasm for their songs illuminates their performances.

Granny's Attic - If you haven't heard this exciting young trio it's time you did. Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (melodeon,concertina, vocals); George Sansome (guitar, vocals) and Lewis Wood (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) are exceptional musicians who draw on English, Irish and Scottish traditions as well as their own compositions. Short-listed for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2014, they perform with great energy and a great sense of fun.

16th Apr Iona Fyfe & Luc McNally - Iona, from Aberdeenshire, delighted us in 2016 with her stunning voice and sensitive keyboard arrangements, coupled with great traditional Scottish songs and ballads. She's accompanied by County Durham guitarist and singer Luc, making a terrific duo.

Jim & Lynette Eldon - Jim is a traditional singer and fiddle player who has been collecting and performing songs and tunes, mainly from the Hull and the East Riding area, for many years.

Lynne is a champion clog dancer whose family are among the sources of this Yorkshire treasure trove..

14th May Carolyn Robson & Moira Craig - Previously two thirds of Craig Morgan Robson, following the sad loss of Sarah Morgan Carolyn and Moira have kept the music and the harmonies alive, concentrating on their native songs of Northumberland and Scotland. Two lovely voices and a great selection of songs.
21st May Peter & Barbara Snape provide a feel-good mix of songs from ballads to comic ditties, all with a Lancastrian flavour and a joyful blend of voice and melodeon. "Peter has a sensitive ear for song accompaniment and with Barbara's gift for interpreting a song's true meaning they create music that compels you to listen and take part" [Folk North West]
28th May Singaround
4th June Richard Grainger is an internationally recognised singer / songwriter who has a long association with the Club. Many of his best-known songs are immersed in the locality of Cleveland and North Yorkshire and its history. 2018 marks the 250th anniversary of his hero James Cook's setting sail on Endeavour so expect to hear more of his voyages.
11th June Singaround
18th June Tony Wilson -Welcome back to a once-regular guest who has been off the scene for some years making a living as a storyteller in schools. On a recent visit he showed he is still in excellent voice and on form as a guitar player. We can look forward to an entertaining night with an old friend.
