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 shut almost as often as it is open......).

The Folk Club started up in January 2011 and our spiritual home and the venue we use most often is:

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

Grayshott Village Hall has ample parking around it and is fully 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 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!

Friday 20th January 2017

Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow (Sheelanagig)

Kit Hawes is the guitar player and singer with Bristol-based big band Sheelanagig. His band-mate Aaron Catlow is the brilliant Fiddle player with them. Together they have formed a duo to play stripped back Folk that originates from the British Isles, Europe, North America and beyond. They combine dazzling playing with fine musicianship and great showmanship. 

Kit and Aaron will be playing songs and tunes from their debut album "The Fox", as they explore the relationships between Guitar Fiddle and Voice using the fertile ground of the Folk music of the British Isles as its starting point. The album brings together decades of playing experience with a mixture of traditional and original material, all of which is played with a passion and intricacy that makes you sit up and listen.

Coincidentally, I saw Kit play at The Royal Festival Hall on 2nd January alongside tonight's support act Nuala Honan and they too make a cracking duo.

 

+ Nuala Honan

Nuala is a singer/guitarist/songwriter whose passionate lyrics are delivered with real intent and a powerful voice. She came and supported Edwina Hayes at Grayshott Folk Club and really impressed the audience that night.
