The House Devils

(www.thehousedevils.co.uk)

At: Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road GRAYSHOTT, Nr. Hindhead, Surrey GU26 6TZ

The House Devils are a traditional Irish/Celtic Folk band who are starting to gain wider recognition. Based in Manchester, they are sure to set Grayshott Village Hall buzzing. 

The House Devils feature Mat Walklate, who is an award-winning Harmonica player, who also plays Flute and Uillean pipes. He sings a bit too.

Matt Fahey sings and plays guitar, whilst Johnny Hulme fills out the sound on Banjo. Together they make great vibes and you won't be able to sit still when they play. If you liked The Outside Track or Crossharbour, or you are just up for the "craic", then you'll love The House Devils.

 

Support: Kim Lowings and The Greenwood

Kim is a talented young lady who has a beautiful voice and who also plays the Mountain Dulcimer. In 2012 she recorded a CD called "Deepest Darkest Night", which just oozesquality and gets better and better with every listen. It's a taste of what's to come from someone that we are tipping for the top.....

Kim will be bringing with her various members of her family and friends who make up the collective known as The Greenwood.

This is a double bill we are proud of and if you've never been to Grayshott Folk Club before, I'm sure you will enjoy what you hear and will want to come again.

Tickets: Adults £12, Children under 16, £6

CARAVAN

At: St. John's Church, St. John's Road, FARNCOMBE, Nr. Godalming, Surrey GU26 6RB

A product of the late 60s and early 70s Canterbury Prog. Rock scene, Caravan are sounding better than ever and we are delighted to welcome the band for a very rare live performance. Grayshott Village Hall was unavailable, so we have decided to go a little further afield and have enlisted the help of Julian Lewry at Farncombe Music Club, in a joint venture. We've waited a long time for this and didn't want to miss the chance of seeing the band who brought us such gems as: "The Land Of Grey and Pink", "For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night" and "Cunning Stunts".

This will be a historical night in many ways.

Don't miss it!
