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 4th September 2015 – The Churchfitters
Wow! What an incredible start to the new term!
How is anyone to sit still when this electrifying four-piece is on stage? Based in Brittany, multi-instrumentalists Rosie Short, Chris Short, bass player Boris Lebret and percussionist Margaux Scherer, play up-tempo and energetic folk, full of stories, drama, harmonies and requiring a wild array of devices: regular instruments are supplemented by a range of home-made and improvised additions. Broadcaster Mike Harding has called them “totally brilliant and beautiful”. This is a chance to see a BIG band up close.

Friday 11th September 2015 – The Young ‘Uns
A riotous, magnificent and uproariously funny trio
Three still-young lads, celebrating their 30th birthdays this year, have an infectious love for the music, traditions and warm humour of their native north-east. The show that David Eagle, Sean Cooney, and Michael Hughes delivered when last at The Ram Club was riotous and uproariously funny. Whether singing a cappella, or accompanied by guitar or accordion, they make a magnificent trio.

Friday 18th September 2015 – Mick Ryan and Paul Downes
Triumphant combination of voice and guitar
Mick’s voice has been described as “underrated” – and while it’s true, that’s not a blunder we will make. He is one of the finest singers around. Put the multi-talented Paul Downes at his side and you have a triumphant combination. Paul says he’s embarrassed when called one of the greatest acoustic guitar players. But either way, he’s right up there and adds gentle wit to Mick’s hilarious stories.
