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 28th June 2019 – Clive Gregson
Wonderful new songs are pop world’s loss and our gain
The pop world’s loss is our gain as Clive’s solo career has delivered wonderful new songs and performances aplenty. After disbanding the successful pop group, Any Trouble, in 1984, Clive went solo and has since released 13 albums of music that span the worlds of acoustic, folk, roots and “singer-songwriter pop”. He has also collaborated with many global stars, such as Richard Thompson and Nanci Griffith. Clive has spent several years in the US and the club is always keen to snap him up for a gig when he’s in the UK as it’s always a special occasion.

Borders stalwart goes solo after illustrious band career
This sensitive guitarist, singer and arranger is now going solo and singing his own songs after an illustrious career as a band member or in duos. Kenny has long been part of the Borders folk scene since co-founding the John Wright Band. After further collaborations and a period of reflection, Kenny has now been inspired to write and release “Sleepwalking”, his first solo CD of wholly self-penned songs, which form the basis of his live shows – while still leaving room for a few songs from the Border country.
