The Ram Club
BBC Radio 2 'Folk Club of the Year' 2007
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.
The man of the moment, with singing and playing talents way beyond his years
Catch this rising star in an intimate setting while you can. Sunjay's trajectory towards fame is steep, as evidenced by the accolades he is winning, including multiple award nominations. He has hardly put a guitar down since the age of four - so he is, naturally, brilliant. With two albums and a natural performing style that belies his youth, he sings folk and blues with an engaging maturity. Don't just take our word for it: "The man of the moment" (Living Tradition); "Already creating a stir with talents way beyond his years" (Maverick Magazine).

Modern traditional tunes and songs from a trio that builds musical tension - then unleashes it
A trio whose sum is even greater than its illustrious parts play modern traditional music with power and precision, cranking up tension, then unleashing it in a burst of melody and harmonies. Saul Rose (also Waterson Carthy and Whapweazel); Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead); and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar's Feast) play guitars, bouzouki, violin, oboe, and melodeons to create a stirring sound. What others say: "Everything that's best in modern traditional music" (Acoustic); "Dynamically fascinating" (Folk and Roots).

The richest and mellowest of voices returns to our stage after a triumphant spell in War Horse
Bob's warm voice, wrapped in a rich north-east England accent, is musical even when he's talking. That he sings, plays a mean guitar, and has such a lavish repertoire of songs - as well as witty repartee - all make for a lyrical evening's entertainment. After he last visited the Ram Club, Bob joined the cast of the acclaimed "War Horse" and will have just completed 18 months with the touring production when he graces our stage again. For a second opinion, Living Tradition says: "Surely one of the great voices of the whole of the Folk Revival."
