Singer/songwriter/guitarist and Canadian Folk heroine was a founder member of The Wailin' Jennies but more recently has forged a highly successful solo career with her powerful and moving music.
She is a:
"Consummate musician and engaging raconteur...... Packing an emotional punch" and her show was "served on a bed of superb musicianship: a backdrop of brilliant guitar playing and many delightful moments of simply wonderful banjo playing that included finishing with a sparkling cover of the Guns N Roses anthem 'Sweet Child of Mine.
In the end, no one wanted the music to stop but sadly it had to"

HATFUL OF RAIN
At Grayshott Social Club, Hill Road, GRAYSHOTT GU26 6HL
The good people of Brighton have known about this band for some time but now the word is out and they're all over the place like a rash!
Along the way, their self-penned British Folk music with Applalachian influences, has attracted some high profile fans, including none other than BBC Radio 2's "Whispering" Bob Harris. Back in March this year Hatful of Rain recorded a session for him which was broadcast on his Saturday night programme. Now everybody wants a piece of the action but fortunately Grayshott Folk Club were ahead of the game and we welcome them to our comfortable and intimate Grayshott Social Club venue where all comers are welcome.
The band's first full-length album is called "Way Up On The Hill" and it's a real cracker which features Fiddle, Piano, Double Bass, Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin, and some wonderful vocals and harmonies.
+ Ben Maggs
We are doubly delighted because tonight we welcome back Ben Maggs to Grayshott Folk Club. Ben won over many new admirers when he played support to The Willows back in March 2012. His return is long overdue and those who saw him before will know just how good he is, whilst those who haven't are in for a special treat!
Stop Press: We will also be welcoming Hilary Scott, freshly arrived from St. Louis, Missouri, USA, she will be doing a short warm up with us, before embarking upon her own UK tour.
Adult tickets are £10, Children Under 16, £5.
