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).
NB: Tickets for the Hank Wangford Trio (Christmas party, Dec 16) ARE NOW SOLD OUT (see below). We’re very sorry if you’ve missed out – but keep an eye on the website in case of any updates.
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 9th December 2016 – Brooks Williams
A potent mix of blues, folk and roots music
Brooks makes everything look and sound so easy. His relaxed voice contains the finest parts of Frank Sinatra’s and Michael Bublé’s and his guitar playing is full of instinctive brilliance – whether he is using standard acoustic, resonator, slide, or three-stringed cigar box models. On top of that, he is a thoroughly charming man with a gift for writing timeless songs. His current forte is a potent mix of blues, folk and roots music that spans the traditions on each side of the Atlantic, from his origins in Statesboro, Georgia, to his present home in the UK.

Friday 16th December 2016 – Hank Wangford Trio / Ram Club Christmas party
Hank’s trio will make this Christmas party a cracker…
NB: This is a ticketed event – and ALL SEATS ARE NOW SOLD. They went on sale at the club, as advertised, on November 25 and sold out in just a few days.
Multi-faceted, multi-talented and oh-so-entertaining, Hank has been at the helm of British country music for around three decades and remains as fresh and bold as ever. So who better to get all dressed up and star at our Christmas party, along with Andy “Brad Breath” Roberts and Anna “Spanner” Robinson? They were sensational on their last visit nearly two years ago. Mulled wine and finger food will be part of the annual club thank you to concert-goers, along with unusual raffle prizes and fun to make the party a cracker.

Friday 6th January 2017 – Hilary James and Simon Mayor
Virtuoso mandolin playing and a lot of laughter
This delightful pair cover all bases with their virtuosity, beautiful singing, a varied repertoire and sparkling wit. They are old friends of the club and went down a storm at our Christmas party a couple of years ago. Simon is one of the world’s finest players of the mandolin and Hilary a rare exponent of the gigantic mandobass, as well as being a sweet singer and guitar player. An evening of great music and laughter.
