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 16th October 2015 – Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith

Jimmy Aldridge and sid goldsmith 2015

Superbly polished guitar and banjo duo

These two young musicians are perfectly in tune with each other and the folk message they are putting across. They are collectors of traditional songs and sing of the struggle of ordinary people and the simple life and their self-penned tunes fit perfectly into their impressive collection. Their driving combination of guitar (Sid) and banjo (Jimmy) is as tight as a drum and their harmonies as smooth as silk. Their CD has been called “understated and thought-provoking”, and live they are superbly polished and accomplished. A class act.

Elliott Morris 2015 web

A dazzlingly skilful guitarist with a sweet singing voice to match

Come and be dazzled by this young man who must have been born with an acoustic guitar in his hands. His mastery of the fretboard is so complete that he is able to use the entire instrument to create a big band sound all on his own. His incredible technique and his musicality, songwriting and sense of fun have brought him to the attention of the likes of Eddi Reader and Paul Carrack, both of whom he has supported. Having played hundreds of gigs, he sings and plays with confidence and is surely on his way to great things.
