The ram guitar pictures to print-colour2bRam 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.

Freshness and vitality from this energetic fivepiece

The glorious harmonies created by the combined voices of Sara Byers, Mary Wilson and, for part of the set, the Ram Club’s good friend Sue Graves, give a rare freshness and vitality to Suntrap’s sound. The band’s mainstay, Paul Hoad, is taking a break and so the line-up at the Ram will be Sara, Mary and John Sandall on violin and viola, plus Sue.  With Sara also contributing accordion, guitar, whistles and bohdran, and Mary playing violin, Suntrap give energetic and varied treatments to songs both old and new. As Ivor Cutler said of them: “I felt cleansed.”

Compelling wordsmith adds fun to the tradition of the 60s protest singers

Pete is witty and clever and his songs range from the hilarious to the moving. A compelling wordsmith with an inclusive political message, his songs range from the beautiful “Another Train” to the funny and finely observed commentary on modern life “In The Days When Time Was Different”. Pete continues the tradition of the 60s protest singers – with the addition of a huge helping of fun.

Virtuoso playing from a band out of London’s Irish scene

From London’s vibrant Irish music scene, something special is rising in the form of this exciting fivepiece who mix traditional tunes and songs with self-penned material and original arrangements. They are Órlaith McAuliffe (whistles, flute), Sam Proctor (fiddle), Philippe Barnes (guitar, flute, whistles), Tad Sargent (bódhran, bouzouki-guitar), and Rosie Hodgson (vocals). With virtuoso playing – Órlaith has been all-Ireland champion 19 times – CrossHarbour are making a big impact.
