Dana & Susan Robinson

These guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing, and harmony-singing interpreters of the American rural experience are two of our favourite transatlantic visitors, with their unique blend of original songwriting and old time mountain music. Dana and Susan's musical journey across America never fails to capture the…

Georgia Lewis & Friends

Georgia is our only debut guest this season and rather special she is. Excellent appearances at several festivals this summer only confirmed the highly favourable impression she first made last year.

Harp And A Monkey

With instruments including guitar, banjo, melodica, harp and glockenspiel, electro-folk storytellers Martin Purdy, Simon Jones and Andy Smith were a hit on their first visit here. A deep Lancashire sensibility shines through their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life. Tonight's show will…

James Keelaghan With Hugh Mcmillan

Our Canadian strand continues with another of that country's foremost folk songwriters and touring musicians. James draws on real people, places and events to compose songs described as poetic, layered tales (which) are richly rewarding and utterly compelling. Paying his eighth visit to York, this majestic singer is again…

Maria Dunn With Shannon Johnson

Staying with Canadian women, we also welcome back this storyteller through song who has been described as a distaff Woody Guthrie.

Martyn Wyndham-read

Here is another favourite performer on the English folk scene, with a career now spanning 50 years. An exceptionally fine singer and a deceptively modest guitar accompanist, Martyn mixes traditional folk ballads with songs learned in Australia, where he spent several formative years in his youth. He is also a champion of…

Sarah Jane Scouten

This Canadian singer songwriter, booked in 2014 as a total unknown, proved to be one of our very best debut visitors of recent times.

A superlative Geordie fiddle player and singer, Tom has been a professional musician since 1974 and has appeared at our club something like 20 times in his long career solo, with Pauline Cato, with Kieran Halpin, with the group Dab Hand and in other guises. A great entertainer with a wide and varied repertoire, tonight…

The Trials Of Cato

We were one of many clubs to be impressed by this young trio when they toured around open mics and singers nights last winter and we happily invited them back for a paid booking. Robin, Will and Tomos play mandolin, tenor banjo, bouzouki and guitar and sing mostly original songs with driving rhythms and rousing vocal…
