Grayshott Folk Club went live with our first ever gig on 22nd January 2011. The main aim of Grayshott Folk Club is to bring "quality live music at affordable prices " to Grayshott, which is a village near HINDHEAD in South-West Surrey.

 

We mostly host Folk bands/musicians and our past guests include;

Altan, Ashley Hutchings/Blair Dunlop, Belshazzar's Feast, Breabach, Jez Lowe & The Bad Pennies, Lau, Merry Hell, O'Hooley & Tidow, Sam Carter/Sam Sweeney, Strawbs,The Bully Wee Band, The Churchfitters, The Young 'Uns and Tide Lines, amongst many others. 

 

We occasionally stray off-piste with a little bit of Americana/Pop/Rock music and Caravan, Colin Blunstone & Band, Jarrod Dickenson, Joe Topping & Scott Poley, Linda Lewis, Mike d'Abo, Police Dog Hogan, The Christians and The Leisure Society have all played for us since we started out.

 

Basically, we do whatever we can, to keep it live, keep it local and to keep hungry musicians off our streets......

 

Our first choice venue is:

Grayshott Village Hall,

Headley Road,

Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD,

Grayshott Folk Club's "Christmas Special" with:

Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our "Christmas Special" is the night when we invite our audiences to commune together around large tables. They can bring along their own food, table decorations (but no burning candles, please) and a bunch of friends. As usual, we provide a fully-licensed pay Bar and offer complimentary Christmas Crackers and Mince Pies to all of our audience members, as well as some seasonal music.

 

Tonight we welcome Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer who will perform their "Winter Warmer", which is a pick 'n mix of classic Christmas Carols, Winter stories and joyful songs, together with a smorgasbord of Scandinavian Christmas songs and tunes.

 

Vicki and Jonny effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary sounds and we'll all have a chance to join in.

 

Do please, bring along your I-Spy book of "Weird and Wonderful Folk Instruments" as you'll be sure to collect lots of points and see and hear things you never knew existed; be entranced by the haunting sound of the Nyckelharpa, amazed at the Cow Horn and meet some Bagpipes that didn't originate in Scotland. It all sounds like the perfect way to kick off our Christmas festivities.......

 

 

+ Rosewood

We know Simon, Val and Phil from old. They've visited Grayshott Folk Club many times before as either Crownstreet or Bof!

We also know that they too play unusual instruments and make wonderful sounds and they'll make a perfect musical blend with Vicki and Jonny.

 

Rosewood sing and play traditional and contemporary songs and instrumentals, some of which they have written themselves. Their unique features are the variety of their source material and the range of instruments they play so keep that I-Spy book handy!
