The Ram Club

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 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

Pure 'Rambience' - the new room

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.

Friday 24th October 2014 - James Keelaghan & Hugh McMillan

James Keelaghan & Hugh McMillan

A welcome return for this internationally renowned Canadian singer/songwriter. Like fellow compatriots Robbie Robertson of The Band and the much-missed Stan Rogers, JAMES draws from the rich traditions, history, triumphs and tragedies of his home land, creating a powerful, melodic, stirring narrative that combines Folk and Canadiana. Not afraid to dip his toes into the waters of politics, disasters, social issues and Sinatra (his dog, not old Blue Eyes), his brilliantly-powerful, evocative songs are delivered in that rich baritone voice that 'soothes, seduces and packs a punch'! HUGH is a multi-instrumentalist capable of playing just about anything with strings on it, including octave mandolin, mandolin, bass, fretless bass, 8 String Bass, pedal steel and lap steel. He tours regularly with James as his 'backing band'. James also has a new retrospective CD/DVD, 'History', charting 25 years in the business. It's chock-full of classics, as will be his gig tonight.£9 members/£10 non-members

Friday 31st October 2014 - Craobh Rua

Craobh Rua

Pronounced 'Crave Roo-ah', Belfast's finest are back at last for what promises to be a stunning celebration of Irish music and song. 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', should be their motto, as this exciting, internationally-renowned acoustic four-piece present their refreshing, unpretentious and uncommonly skilled run at some of the greatest music in the world. They play Irish Traditional Music with their distinctive Northern style - rousing jigs, reels, polkas, airs and more as well as a bundle of cracking songs. They are all superb musicians; founder member BRIAN CONNOLLY (banjo & mandolin), MICHAEL CASSIDY (fiddle), DESY McCABE (uilleann pipes & whistle) and JIM RAINEY (guitar and vocals). A 'supergroup' by any notion, they are rightly regarded as true ambassadors of Irish traditional music and it's a pleasure to welcome them back.£10 members/£12 non-members

Friday 7th November 2014 - Dave Ellis and Boo Howard

Dave Ellis and Boo Howard

With a terrific back catalogue of songs to draw on and a truly endearing working relationship, Dave and Boo promise a warm evening of gorgeous melodies, intelligent lyrics and wry humour. Dave has an interesting collection of instruments, including acoustic, hollow-bodied and electric guitars, plus mandolin and banjo (which ones will he bring on the night?) and is a master of them all. Boo plays subtle acoustic and electric bass, as well as guitar, and her warm, mellow and engaging voice adds charm to whichever genre (folk, blues, bluegrass) the duo choose to embrace.£8 members/£9 non-members
