Important - Change of Ram email address for publicity and mailouts
BT have finally made it impossible to use our old address for Ram Club publicity and email-outs so from now one please use email@example.com for emailing publicity material or advising mailing list updates. This is the address we will be sending our newsletters out from in future.
Please note that the email for enquiries by artists to Bob and Maggie remains the same firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ram Club is one of the finest venues in the South of England for folk, acoustic and roots music. Our aim is to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere to allow you to enjoy the music to the fullest. We meet on most Fridays at the Old Cranleighan Sports Club in Thames Ditton, Surrey and we pride ourselves in booking top artistes from the UK and beyond to perform for you close up in our convivial surroundings.
Friday night is Ram Club night, so come along and enjoy a great night out. With the odd exception we don’t sell tickets in advance – just turn up! The bar is usually open at 7.30pm and you can wait in there while we do the sound check before flinging the doors open at 8.15pm. If you’ve never been before just give us a try and we’ll make you welcome!
...and if you are a full-time student we’ll give you a generous discount.
Pronounced 'Crave Roo-ah', Belfast's finest are back at last for what promises to be a stunning celebration of Irish music and song. 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', should be their motto, as this exciting, internationally-renowned acoustic four-piece present their refreshing, unpretentious and uncommonly skilled run at some of the greatest music in the world. They play Irish Traditional Music with their distinctive Northern style - rousing jigs, reels, polkas, airs and more as well as a bundle of cracking songs. They are all superb musicians; founder member BRIAN CONNOLLY (banjo & mandolin), MICHAEL CASSIDY (fiddle), DESY McCABE (uilleann pipes & whistle) and JIM RAINEY (guitar and vocals). A 'supergroup' by any notion, they are rightly regarded as true ambassadors of Irish traditional music and it's a pleasure to welcome them back.

With a terrific back catalogue of songs to draw on and a truly endearing working relationship, Dave and Boo promise a warm evening of gorgeous melodies, intelligent lyrics and wry humour. Dave has an interesting collection of instruments, including acoustic, hollow-bodied and electric guitars, plus mandolin and banjo (which ones will he bring on the night?) and is a master of them all. Boo plays subtle acoustic and electric bass, as well as guitar, and her warm, mellow and engaging voice adds charm to whichever genre (folk, blues, bluegrass) the duo choose to embrace.

Brooks is a genuinely top class act with a voice that has "star quality" stamped all over it - he has all the note-perfect security and appealing swing of Michael Buble but with added grit. And Brooks plays guitar with enviable skill at the same time. He is an inspiring singer-songwriter, a smart selector of other people's tunes and has released nearly 20 albums. Last seen at the Ram Club playing with Boo Hewerdine as State of the Union, he will offer the club another scintillating solo set of rootsy Americana folk and blues.
