30th April - Tom McConville

Tynesider Tom is simply one of the the finest folk musicians of our time. Having played alongside some of the folk greats (Bob Fox, Chris Newman, etc) and at one time mentor of the young Seth Lakeman, who describes him as "... a true master", you will get not only fantasic fiddle-playing but great songs, a fine voice and dry humour. £10



7th May - Cloudstreet

It is over 6 years since we last welcomed this fabulous Australian trio to the club and this promises to be their final UK tour. Nicole, John and Emma have carved themselves a niche internationally with teriffic vocal harmonies, their arrangements of Australian classics and a repertoire that spans the Anglo-Celtic world. Not to be missed! £12

21th May - Paul Downes

Taking a break tonight from touring with Mick Ryan, Paul will showcase his outstanding talent on guitar, which has led to successful collaborations with Phil Beer, the Joyce Gang, Arizona Smoke Revue, etc, etc. His relaxed style belies the quality of his musicianship (he is in great demand a a session musician). He's also a fine singer! £10

If you like versatility in an artist, then this is definitely the evening for you!

Bue his is also a serious song-writer, recently working with Flossie Malavialle. £10
