Important - Change of Ram email address for publicity and mailouts
BT have finally made it impossible to use our old address for Ram Club publicity and email-outs so from now one please use email@example.com for emailing publicity material or advising mailing list updates. This is the address we will be sending our newsletters out from in future.
Please note that the email for enquiries by artists to Bob and Maggie remains the same firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ram Club is one of the finest venues in the South of England for folk, acoustic and roots music. Our aim is to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere to allow you to enjoy the music to the fullest. We meet on most Fridays at the Old Cranleighan Sports Club in Thames Ditton, Surrey and we pride ourselves in booking top artistes from the UK and beyond to perform for you close up in our convivial surroundings.
Friday night is Ram Club night, so come along and enjoy a great night out. With the odd exception we don’t sell tickets in advance – just turn up! The bar is usually open at 7.30pm and you can wait in there while we do the sound check before flinging the doors open at 8.15pm. If you’ve never been before just give us a try and we’ll make you welcome!
...and if you are a full-time student we’ll give you a generous discount.
A rollicking evening of fun and great singing and musicianship from this powerful four-piece
Expect a powerhouse mixture of folk tunes, from the traditional to the edge of folk-rock, with achingly melodic ballads. The band (Ian Cutler, fiddle and keyboard; Colin Reece, guitar; Jim Yardley, mandolin and whistles; and Fergus Feely, cello mandolin) deliver a fast-paced, rollicking evening of fun, banter and great musicianship and singing. Colin and Jim were in the original band line-up in 1971 - and have witnessed its many incarnations and triumphant comebacks. They might have called a recent album "The Vintage Years 1975-1980", but as Folk and Roots says: "The old magic is still there and the music sounds as fresh as it did then."

Mesmerising singer captures poetry in the music - with brilliant guitar accompaniment
Jim Causley captivates and mesmerises with his poetic singing style, reminiscent of the Waterson-Carthy mode in its prime. Jim has recorded with Show of Hands and John McCusker, toured with Kate Rusby and on his last album, he put tunes to the poems of his relative, Charles Causley. Lukas Drinkwater, a skilful and sought-after session musician, accompanies on guitar. What others say: "The finest male folk singer of his generation." And: "Cheeky, charming and his singing is as deep and rich as the best gravy."

Guitar brilliance and expressive vocals - plus on-stage magic from award-winning couple
The club's second married couple of 2015 (after Megson in January), proving again how domestic chemistry sparks on-stage magic. Sean has a fantastic musical pedigree, as part of team Lakeman, and Kathryn's musical parents set her on a path that led to collaborations with fellow Barnsley star, Kate Rusby. Now playing together again after a maternity break and other projects, we can enjoy Sean's guitar brilliance and Kathryn's extraordinarily expressive singing - and to hear their new album, released this month. What others say of this award-winning pair: "The Roberts-Lakeman name has become synonymous with quality."
