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, 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 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!

HOME SERVICE

 

This legendary 8-piece Folk/Rock band rose from the ashes of The Albion Band in the early '80s. Despite personnel changes over the years, they have maintained their high standards and their reputation as one of the foremost live Folk/Rock bands. The won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Live Act in 2012. Each member of the band pursues individual musical projects so they don't get together very often but when they do, it is a Folk/Rock party not to be missed. Think Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, The Albion Band, then think Home Service. They all come from a similar mould and they will rock the rafters at St. Alban's Church.

 

+ Bof! play traditional French Folk songs and dance tunes. We welcome back our good old friends from Hadleigh in Suffolk. They played for us last when they supported Altan at St. Alban's Church and anyone who was there, will remember a wonderful night of music.

Tonight we're sure to have another great night at St. Alban's.

 

Tickets £18. Call Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096

THE WILLOWS

We welcome back The Willows to Grayshott Folk Club. The Willows are a six-piece Folk/Rock band from Cambridge who have recently added Katriona Gilmore (of The Albion Band and Gilmore & Roberts) to their line up.

 

+ Alden, Patterson and Dashwood-are an innovative and melodic trio from Norwich who came and played the support slot for Breabach for us, earlier this year. They make a wonderful sound together and are surely destined for bigger things.

 

Tickets £15 from Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096

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

Friday 1st December 2017 @ 7.30pm

The Way Down Wanderers-a lively and upbeat five-piece who are on tour from Chicago U.S.A. They incorporate Folk, Americana and Bluegrass influences in to their high energy music. You won't be able to sit still when you hear these guys..........

 

+ Jonas & Jane-originally from Farnham and now living in Guildford, Jonas & Jane play Bluegrass/Americana music, much of which they have written themselves. They have organised their own tours across the States and have played for us at Grayshott twice before. We know that we'll enjoy hearing them again and it's great that they get to play a "home" gig.

Saturday 16th December 2017 @ 7.30pm

Tonight we are shamelessly indulging in nostalgia and attempting to evoke the spirit of Christmas from a bygone age. Please come and join us at:

 

Grayshott Folk Club's Christmas Special with:

Magpie Lane- We welcome back Magpie Lane for their third visit to us. Magpie Lane are a wonderful, traditional English Folk quintet from Oxford, whose focus is on vocals and harmony singing. They sing seasonal, Winter and Christmas songs, some familiar, others not so but each one is delivered with passion and precision. This will be the perfect way to get your Christmas off to a happy and joyful start.

 

+ Mervyn Mewis and Kathryn Young-Mervyn and Kathryn came to play for us earlier in the year when they supported Faustus. Mervyn plays the Hammer Dulcimer, whilst Kathryn plays a range of Harps. Together they make beautiful music, some of which dates back hundreds of years. In addition to playing skillfully and beautifully, Mervyn and Kathryn actually make their own instruments.

 

Tickets £15 available from Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096
