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 have included;

Altan, Ashley Hutchings/Blair Dunlop, Belshazzar's Feast, Breabach, Coig, 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,

Surrey GU26 6TZ

 

and from time to time, we also use

 

Grayshott Social Club, Hill Road, Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD Surrey GU26 6HL

and

St. Alban's Church, Tilford Road,

HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6RB

as venues to host our live music events.

Grayshott Folk Club's "Christmas Special"

with

 

BECKY MILLS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Becky is a talented guitarist/singer/song writer who is an established and highly-regarded musician in her own right. She was a member of Waking The Witch, before pursuing a successful solo career and she is a go-to accompanist for some of our top Folk pefrormers. Previously, she has visited Grayshott Folk Club in 2014 with Ken Nicholl (ex-Steeleye Span, Magna Carta) and again in a sell-out gig in 2019, alongside Ashley Hutchings M.B.E. (ex-Fairport Convention, Steeley Span, Albion Band). Becky has released two albums of her own songs; "Dandelions" in 2013 and "Tall Tales and Home Truths" in 2019.

 

This year, she has been working on a brand new album with Ashley Hutchings and his son Blair Dunlop, called "A Winter Miscellany" and she will be featuring seasonal songs from that album in our Christmas show.

JOHN BLEK


John is a gentle giant who hails from Cork in the Republic of Ireland. He is a gifted singer/song writer/guitarist who has written some beautiful but powerful songs, many of which reflect his own personal experiences, not all of which have been happy ones....

 

He came and played for us in April 2019 and proved to be very popular with our audience. We've been.iting for the right time to invite him back again, when both of our schedules coincide and we are delighted to welcome him back. 

 

If you didn't see him last time around, make a special effort to, this time. Time is always well spent in John's company and will prove to be both enjoyable and thought-provoking. Check out John's bittersweet song "Lace" here:
