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 22nd February 2019 – Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
One of the most watchable duos around
Exquisite and deeply moving songwriting twinned with superbly accomplished musicianship – as you would expect with a Lakeman in the line-up – make this duo one of the most watchable around. Kathryn sings with a delicate warmth and clarity that brings to life the subjects of their songs – and she plays sweetly on piano, too; Sean’s guitar playing is exemplary yet unassuming. Together they’re clever, charming and unpretentious.

Friday 1st March 2019 – Sunjay
A young man performing with maturity and making a name for himself
Sunjay is a young man making a splash in the music world. He also knows his own mind and performs with a maturity that can make any audience feel at ease. Initially inspired to play guitar on hearing Buddy Holly records being played at home, Sunjay has recorded an album of Holly’s songs and even has the glasses to match. But his repertoire stretches far and wide, embracing folk, jazz, blues and pop. He’s always a welcome visitor to our stage.

Friday 8th March 2019 – James Riley
Thoughtful songwriter described as ‘awesome’, ‘exquisite’ and ‘phenomenal’
James makes moving, soulful and atmospheric music. He wrote his first melody aged four and was playing guitar by the age of nine. From his native south-east London, he later busked across Europe to Istanbul and returned with songs that became the source for his EPs, and now an album recorded in Nashville to be released in the spring. A deft guitar player and confident singer, he has been called “awesome”, “exquisite” and “phenomenal”.
