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 5th January 2018 – Boo Hewerdine
A night to savour with a top-class songwriter
An old friend of the club who never fails to wow his audience with the beauty of his songwriting. Boo sees himself primarily as a writer – his recent album, “Swimming in Mercury” is packed with brilliant new songs – but proves with every concert that he is a top-class performer, too, with a host of hilarious tales and a faultless singing and playing style. He works regularly with big names in the acoustic music world (Eddi Reader, Chris Difford, Heidi Talbot and more), but we’ll have Boo to ourselves, making it a night to savour.

Sisters with fabulous skill and youthful charm
Hailed as the finest exponents of Celtic music on the western side of the Atlantic, these lively and energetic young sisters from Nova Scotia are making a huge impression with their fabulous technical skill, youthful charm and perfect sibling harmonies. From gorgeous ballads to up-tempo fiddle-based tunes and plenty in between, Cassie and Maggie produce what has been called “an enormous sound” that becomes totally captivating. Their music is simultaneously from the past yet truly modern. Very special.
