New CD from Eileen

April sees two exciting events - 2nd April - our normal night turned into the Eighth Special Event featuring Tim Laycock, specialist in the songs, traditions and dialect of the West Country, and floor spots.  Tickets for this event are 5 and 4 in advance.

Then we are really thrilled to be presenting our First Acorn Folk Club Day, with a Crossing the Borders Theme, free of charge, starting at 12 noon with an Irish Session led by The Pagan Gypsies, followed by a Singaround with Dave Totterdell & Hilary Pavey and Quorum.  During the afternoon there will be an American/Anglo Ballad Workshop led by Sara Grey & Kieron Means, (2), followed by an English Session led by Gerry & Sue Mogg & George Ody with space for more songs.  The icing on the cake will be the Evening Concert with Sara & Kieron and other artists who have participated in the day - 6 or 5 in advance. 

On May 7th The Dambuskers will be the guests.  This is an exciting young band from the Bideford area in Devon.

Concluding the season, before the West Somerset Folk Festival, we will be welcoming back, on 4th June,  the wonderful singer/songwriter Pete Morton
