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 on 22nd 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 young 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!

FAUSTUS

 

Now that Folk behemoth Bellowhead have disbanded, its individual members can spend more time pursuing their own musical projects and so Faustus are going back on the road again, having released their third album "Death and Other Animals" last year. These guys are consummate musicians at the leading edge of contemporary and traditional Folk music and together they are probably the best British Folk group of the moment.

 

Featuring:

Benji Kirkpatrick-guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, banjo & vocals

Saul Rose-melodeon, (accordion) & vocals

Paul Sartin-oboe,violin, cor anglais 7 vocals

 

"Everything that's best in modern traditional music"

 

Prepare to be amazed..............

HANNAH SANDERS & BEN SAVAGE

 

Hannah has played and sung for us twice before; once with Liz Simmons (who will be on tour from the States later this Summer with Low Lily and who will be playing for us again on 30th June) and once as a solo performer. Hannah has a soothing, gentle voice and is an accomplished guitar and dulcimer player. 

Ben has also played for us, as a member of The Willows. He is a brilliant guitar player and his voice blends beautifully with that of Hannah.

Hannah and Ben have teamed up to create a potent duo who deserve all the accolades coming their way. Their new album "Before The Sun" is a polished gem and it has garnered some very encouraging reviews.

 

"Spellbinding..........Hannah and Ben were born to play and sing together"                                                                            fRoots

 

"They have created an exquisite soundscape, which is the result of passion, precision and unbridled intimacy. An album to venerate".

 

+ Support: Gareth Lee & Annie Bayliss. A charming couple from Cornwall. He sings and play guitar, she sings and plays the fiddle. They've also been to Grayshott before and they are great.

 

Tickets:

Adults £12

Under 16s £6

EZIO/BOOGA

 

Two guitars, one voice and a great night out!

 

Italian-born Ezio and Mark "Booga" Fowell, hailing from Cambridge, have developed their own sensitive style, a mixture of rock and folk full of gorgeous acoustic melodies and intelligent lyrics. They have been forerunners in the acoustic music scene for twenty-six years. They have always been impossible to describe, as their music ranges from a highly rhythmical, almost manic Latin feeling rock, to delicate dreamy ballads that are heart-breakingly honest and deeply poetic.

Tonight they will be playing songs from their newest album "Daylight Moon", as well as some of their favourites from their extensive back catalogue.

 

+ Martha Paton

Martha makes a return visit to us. In the short time since she played for us last year, she has already begun to appear on a lot more peoples' radar. Catch her playing local venues while you still can.

 

Tickets:

Adults £14

Under 16s £7

UNDERHILL ROSE

 

On tour from North Carolina, U.S.A.

Last year, I saw these girls play at both The Coffee Lounge in Beacon Hill and The Stables in Milton Keynes. They are very talented musicians, great singers and good fun too. They each take a turn in the spotlight and together their variety and blend of sounds are full of the feelgood factor. This will be a gig to lift your spirits.

 

+ Jonas & Jane

We welcome back this very talented and increasingly popular duo from l'il ol' Farnham Town. Worth a headline slot in their own right.
