The Ram Club features some of the world’s finest musicians on stage every Friday night and is one of the most successful acoustic music venues in the UK. The atmosphere is informal and this is reflected in the warmth and intimacy of the weekly concerts. It is called a club but everyone, whether a member or not, is made more than welcome. Just turn up and pay at the door (we very rarely sell tickets in advance).
The concerts are held at the Old Cranleighan Club in Thames Ditton, Surrey. The bar opens at 7.30pm and the hall doors open at 8.15pm.
Friday 10th July 2015 – Chris and Kellie While
The perfect blending of mother and daughter voices
This mother and daughter duo, renowned for collaborations with others, are simply beautiful together, voices blending intuitively. Each is an accomplished songwriter and interpreter of others’ work and each has been involved with the Albions and Fairport. Eddi Reader called Chris “The best singer in England” and Kellie was called the “greatest voice from English folk since Sandy Denny”.

Friday 17th July 2015 – The Sam Kelly Trio
Sam is ‘absolutely brilliant'; ‘has so much soul'; ‘a BGT hottie’
Sam is another of the hottest young acoustic talents, winning accolades from Cara Dillon (“he sings with so much soul, he’s so talented”), Mike Harding (“absolutely brilliant”), Sean Lakeman (“one of the best young male voices”), and others. In 2012, aged 19, he reached the final of “Britain’s Got Talent” (he is called “a BGT hottie” in one TV clip) and even then showed huge stage presence. Now 22, he plays with Jamie Francis on banjo and Evan Carson on bodhran, with a sound reminiscent of the great Roberts/Lakeman duo.

Friday 24th July 2015 – Elbow Jane
‘Utterly infectious’ band provide exhilarating season finale
It’s an exhilarating climax to the spring/summer season with a visit from this fabulous fivepiece – Kevin Byrne, Chris Chesters, Colin Burgess, Joe Topping and Richard Woods, who between them play piano, guitars, drums, mandolin, mandola and dulcimer. They also sing in what have been called “stunning harmonies” and are “utterly infectious”. They completely won the club over on their last visit.
