6th Jan Singaround
13th Jan Hotspot: Steve Lane - One of the mainstays of the Club, Steve is an accomplished singer and guitar player. We may also hear his hurdy gurdy. His repertoire encompasses traditional and very good contemporary songs, including some of his own.
20th Jan Singaround
27th Jan Alan "Fitzy" Fitzsimmons - perhaps most widely known as one of The Keelers, singing top harmony, Fitzy has a great Tyneside voice and is one of the North East's greatest interpreters of traditional song. He also has a great knack of putting fine tunes to songs and poems.
3rd Feb Singaround
10th Feb Tony Wilson - Return visit for an old friend of the Club - a folk hero with a cheery face and a wealth of songs and stories, accompanied by lively guitar, mandola and banjo. (Find Tony on Facebook)
17th Feb Dick Miles is a regular visitor. Always entertaining, he's an engaging singer who puts across traditional songs and a few of his own in a relaxed style, to the accompaniment of English concertina and guitar.
24th Feb Singaround
2nd Mar Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne was last with us as part of Granny's Attic (a great night). He's increasingly highly regarded as a solo artist, both as a singer rooted in the traditions of the British Isles and for his mastery of melodeon and anglo concertina which are used for rhythmic dance tunes and for sensitive, sometimes intricate accompamiment to the songs. His visit promises to be one of the highlights of our year!
9th Mar Singaround
16th Mar Four 'n' Aft -Helen Pitt and Steve Dawes join forces with Chris Lock and Ian Tupling to make up a cracking a cappella quartet which has wowed maritime festivals across Europe with their rousing sound, strong harmonies and a fantastic repertoire of songs.
23rd Mar Singaround
30th Mar Will Duke & Vic Gammon have played and sung together over many years: both have roots in Sussex. Will is a wizard on the anglo concertina - he was strongly influenced by Scan Tester and plays one of Scan's instruments. He also sings traditional and music-hall songs. Vic is a noted folk-song scholar who sings and plays a variety of instruments including tenor banjo, mandolin and squeezeboxes.

Listings for other clubs in the north east can be found in "Folk Roundabout", for sale at the club.
