The Ram Club

BBC Radio 2 'Folk Club of the Year' 2007


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 26th September 2014 - Kieran Goss

Kieran Goss

KIERAN is rightly recognised as one of Ireland's top contemporary songwriters and performers who is never off the radio back home. He's had hit singles and his songs have been covered far and wide (two were on Mary Black's 'Babes in the Wood' album). Born and raised in County Down, Northern Ireland he grew up in a big family listening to Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Sinatra and the Stones to name a few - artists that influenced his own unique sound. He has a huge fan base on the continent and here. Why? Because he writes the most beautifully-crafted, melodic, touching, uplifting, pertinent songs and performs them exquisitely. His latest album, 2009's 'I'll Be Seeing You' displays a remarkably-reflective maturity born of tragic, sad events in his personal life at the time. Songs of loss but ultimately of hope, his spirit shines through on every track. 'Live' he has that rare ability to connect to an audience and light up the room. Back by demand!£10 members/£11 non-members

Friday 3rd October 2014 - Joe Topping & Scott Poley

Joe Topping & Scott Poley

JOE TOPPING is a charismatic singer and musician who is no stranger to the Ram, having been here with Elbow Jane and Rainbow Chasers. A superb singer-songwriter, he has been described as a cross between Ry Cooder, Woody Guthrie and Paul Brady. Influenced by traditional music heard in the folk clubs he grew up around to the Americana and blues influences from his adventures in the USA (including walking 1400 miles with a guitar on his back from Chicago to New Orleans), he has honed his craft to perfection. His voice, always passionate, can move from velvet soft to steely and powerful, complemented by his unique guitar, banjo and mandolin style. Joe has played with many legends of British folk, most recently as stand-in lead vocalist for the Home Service. SCOTT plays dobro, lap and pedal steel like Nashville's finest. He started his professional career at the age of 13 playing blues, pop and rock music and his unique and intoxicating style has featured on countless recordings. Always on the road, Scott was last here in 2010 with Cara Luft. A perfect pairing!£9 members/£10 non-members

Friday 10th October 2014 - Adrian Nation

Adrian Nation

This fast-fingered acoustic guitarist defies categorisation, as he incorporates elements of folk, country, rock and blues into his repertoire. Renowned as an easy-going and engaging performer, he can dazzle with his playing and move an audience with his beautifully composed songs. He is one of those priceless artists who appeals to music lovers of all ages, spanning generations and encouraging younger fans to sample the wider delights of acoustic music. Fresh from a slot at the Cambridge Folk Festival and a busy summer schedule, he visits the Ram Club before setting off on a tour of The Netherlands.£8 members/£9 non-members
