------------------------------------------

Grayshott is a village which lies on the borders of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.

It is just off the main A3 trunk road, about 40 miles South of London and 30 miles North of Portsmouth, near the World famous Hindhead Tunnel (that is closed almost as often as it is open......).

 

The Folk Club started up on 22nd January 2011 and our spiritual home and the venue we use most often for our gigs is:

Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road, GRAYSHOTT, Nr. HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6TZ

Grayshott Village Hall has ample parking, a fully-licensed Bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and is wheelchair accessible.

 

We also use other venues nearby for our events, including; 

Grayshott Social Club, GU26 6HL 

St. Alban's Church, Hindhead GU26 6RB

and Haslemere Educational Museum GU27 2AL

Occasionally, we put on joint promotions at St. John's Church in Farncombe, Nr Guildford, Surrey with Farncombe Music Club.

 

The main aim of Grayshott Folk Club is to offer: 

"Quality live music at affordable prices".

There are no membership, subscription or joining fees.

EVERYONE of all ages is welcome to ALL of our gigs.

 

We pride ourselves in introducing Folk perfomers from all over the World to our audiences, as well as giving performance opportunities to young, emerging and local musicians.

We have often spotted "the next big thing" ahead of time and we sometimes venture off-piste with gigs by Pop, Rock, Prog Rock and Blues bands.

Expect the unexpected at Grayshott Folk Club!

We also serve a range of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

COLIN BLUNSTONE and his Band SOLD OUT

 

The Zombies' front man returns from a wide-ranging sold out tour of the States with them to play some intimate UK dates with his own band. This will be a chance to get up close and personal with one of Pop music's longest-serving and most talented aristocrats.

 

Tickets: £20

Saturday 28th April @ 7.30pm

JOE TOPPING & SCOTT POLEY (from Liverpool)

 

Joe and Scott are two top class musicians, who let their singing and playing do the talking. Joe is a wonderful singer (the best male singer we've heard at Grayshott, in my opinion), as well as being an excellent guitarist. Scott is a brilliant guitarist and pedal-steel guitar player, who features on some of my favourite albums by Cherry Ghost.

 

You may not have heard of either of these guys before but trust me, once you've seen them and heard them play/sing, you won't ever forget them.

 

+ The Shackleton Trio-are a wonderful trio from East Anglia, who are led by singer/fiddler, Georgia Shackleton. They play an exciting blend of Folk, Americana and self-penned material. Georgia is accompanied by the talented Aaren Bennett on guitar and Nic Zuppardi on Mandolin. 

 

Tickets: Adults £12/Under 16s £6

Friday 18th May 2018 @ 7.30pm

SILKEN SAME (from Galway/Dublin)

 

I've been trying to persuade Mossy Nolan (bouzouki/vocals) to come and play/sing for us at Grayshott Folk Club for some time. Having established himself in his native Ireland and supported the likes of LAU and Luka Bloom, Mossy has now teamed up with Colm McGowan (guitar/vocals) to form The Silken Same. This will be their debut UK tour but I feel certain it won't be their last. Expect wonderful singing and great music.

 

+ The Charcoal Burners (from Haslemere)

The Charcoal Burners have royally entertained us on several occasions over the past few years. Led by charismatic singer/song writer/gutarist David O'Brien, this band are rapidly gaining popularity in the local area. Be warned: their "fast, foot tapping and infectiously catchy" music will make you want to whoop and leap around the room.

The band also features Steve Redshaw on Banjo, Martin Ruinet on Whistle, Harmonica and Mandolin and Art Gelling on Bass and Cajon.

 

 

** This gig is being held in the cosy setting of the Function Room at:

Grayshott Social Club,

Hill Road,

Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD,

Surrey GU26 6HL

where you are welcome as a Club Member for the night and the Bar prices are most reasonable.

 

Tickets £12 Adults/Under 16s £6

O'HOOLEY & TIDOW

 

On April 4th 2018 we will hear whether or not Heidi and Belinda have finally carried off The Best Duo Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, having been nominated for the fourth time this year. These nominations reflect their high standing in the Folk world and their continued pursuit of excellence. Their song writing, singing and Piano playing combine to great effect as they vocalise the state of the world and life today, as they see it.
