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.

Friday 22nd September 2017 – Mick Ryan & Paul Downes

This pair shifts effortlessly between moods

Mick’s wry observations on modern life and Paul’s incisive asides make for an evening full of hilarity and engaging songs. Mick has a powerful, resonant voice and Paul is a splendid guitarist and singer and together they effortlessly shift between moods – one minute light-hearted and whimsical, the next deeply personal and moving, the next solidly traditional, all inviting interaction with the audience.

Friday 29th September 2017 – Enda Kenny & Dave O’Neill

Songs spiced with humour and warmth

Lyrics spiced with humour flow from Enda’s songwriting pen and are delivered with warmth and fun by these two classy musicians. Irish-born Enda moved to Australia in the 1980s and as one commentator says, he “always holds the crowd in the palm of his hand… a brilliant night’s entertainment”. Multi-instrumentalist Dave O’Neill, who spent 10 years touring with Eric Bogle’s band, simply adds to the joy.

Friday 6th October 2017 – Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith

Great storytelling put to an elegant sound

The power of storytelling is top priority for this charming pair of superb singers and players – in both the traditional songs they tackle, as well as their own compositions. It places them sturdily in the true folk culture, as does their mastery of banjo, guitar, and sweet harmonies. For a gorgeous example of just how elegant they sound, listen to them play “The Cottager’s Reply”. A very welcome return to our stage.
