What's on

WEDNESDAY 11th MAY - CROWS

‘Crows’ are a folk band who perform a mix of original and traditional music, with imaginative instrumental arrangements and powerful 4-part harmonies. Mick Ryan (lead vocals) is well known to the club, having performed here in duos with Pete Harris (vocals, guitar, bouzouki) and Paul Downes (guitar, banjo, Mando-cello and harmonies). As ‘Crows’ the three of them are joined by Dave Bordeway (fiddle, Mando-cello, high harmonies) who, like Mick, was a member of the original, much celebrated ‘Crows’ band in the 1980s. All four are well known and highly respected performers in their own right.

WEDNESDAY 8th JUNE - HANNAH SANDERS & BEN SAVAGE

A welcome return to Hambledon of Hannah and Ben who gave us a wonderful performance in 2016 before they became an established duo. Since then they have recorded two albums, toured the world and shared stages with the likes of Martin Simpson and Seth Lakeman. The remarkable purity of their vocals blends together in intimate duets accompanied on mountain dulcimer, dobro and guitar. Their material is as joyful and fun as it is intense, but the common factor is the duo’s warmth and confidence in each other; their natural ease and connection is a genuine pleasure to witness on stage.

Alfonso the Magnificent is an innovative and exciting group, mixing traditional genres of modern folk, Latin, jazz and Classical music to create a unique sound of their own. They perform original songs ranging from melancholic, emotionally charged ballads to toe-tapping upbeat dance tunes. They are a four piece band from Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex: Violinist Mervyn Wallis, Singer/Guitarist Leo Gibbs, Accordionist David Warner and Percussionist Nathan Marshall. A great, live act!
