Grayshott Folk Club started up on 22nd January 2011 with the aim of bringing "quality live music at affordable prices " to Grayshott, which is a village near HINDHEAD in South-West Surrey.

 

We mostly host Folk bands/musicians but occasionally stray off-piste with a little bit of Americana/Pop/Rock music and we do whatever we can, to keep hungry musicians off our streets......

 

Our first choice venue is:

Grayshott Village Hall,

Headley Road,

Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD,

Surrey GU26 6TZ

 

and from time to time, we also use

 

Grayshott Social Club, Hill Road, Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD Surrey GU26 6HL

and

St. Alban's Church, Tilford Road,

HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6RB

as venues to host our live music events.

 

If you wish to buy tickets for our gigs, you can buy them in person from either:

Grayshott Post Office, Crossways Road, Grayshott GU26 6HJ

or

Haslemere Bookshop, High Street, HASLEMERE, Surrey GU27

 

Alternatively you can call Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096

or e-mail me at:

MERRY HELL

 

A six-piece acoustic Folk/Rock band from the North-West, who are firm festival favourites and who have been on our radar for some time. Expect lots of energy and some thoughtful songs.

This gig will put a skip in our steps and a smile on our faces as we start our Summer break.

+ Dean Dyson

You may have seen Dean busking in Guildford High Street. You may have seen him in Chichester and/or Winchester too. You might even have seen him recently on television-if you didn't blink..... Either way, it is great to welcome Dean to Grayshott Village Hall so that he can perform some of own songs.

 

Tickets £16 available from Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096

Our brand new 2019/2020 Season starts on

Saturday 21st September 2019

when our very special guests will be:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE LEISURE SOCIETY

Despite writing memorable, infectious tunes accompanied by thought-provoking and intelligent lyrics, combined with terrific musicianship, these guys are still not superstars.

I cannot think of one good reason why  not..........

 

It all started eleven years and five albums ago:

The Leisure Society released their first single, "The Last of The Melting Snow", which instantly caught the ear of those who know what a great song sounds like. Guy Garvey (of Elbow), for one. It was also nominated for an Ivor Novello Award. High praise indeed.

 

Here it is:

In 2009, the band released their cracking debut album ("Sleeper"), which was chock full of great songs, including another song ("Save It For Someone Who Cares"), which was also nominated for an Ivor Novello Award. To get one nomination, is an accolade, to get two, is simply outstanding.

 

The band then proceeded to bring out another four stunning albums:

"Into The Murky Water"-2011

"Alone Aboard The Ark"-2013

"The Fine Art Of Hanging On"-2015

and now in 2019, their latest album entitled: "Arrivals & Departures" (with a special guest appearance by Brian Eno, who is another big fan of The Leisure Society).

 

From the cover art work, to the musical performance and production, all of these albums have been carefully crafted and each is a stand alone classic. If you don't know their music, here are a couple of tasters to get you started:

 

"The Last of The Melting Snow"

"A Matter of Time"

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=the+leisure+society+a+matter+of+time                       

The Leisure Society are:

Nick Hemmings-Vocals/Guitar/Piano

Christian Hardy-Key boards/Vocals

Mike Siddell-Violin/Viola

Sebastian Hankins-Percussion/Vocals

Jon Cox-Bass/Vocals

 

I can't tell you how chuffed we are to have booked The Leisure Society to play for us at Grayshott Village Hall and we hope that you will be there to join us for what is bound to be a wonderful night of live music.

 

2019 could be the year they finally break through-be there to see why.

It's just a matter of time..........
