The Ram 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 23rd November 2018 – Wizz Jones
A ground-breaking guitarist; a living legend, not to be missed
An inspiration to the likes of Eric Clapton and John Renbourn, Wizz has long been a ground-breaking guitarist with a dazzling blues-folk style honed on the 1960s busker trails of Europe and North Africa. He is also a noted songwriter whose composition, “When I Leave Berlin”, was sung by Bruce Springsteen – just one of many tributes and accolades. Wizz is a living legend of the folk circuit and we get to see him up close.

Friday 30th November 2018 – Máire Ni Chathasaigh & Chris Newman
‘Brilliance and beauty’
Not one genuine virtuoso instrumentalist, but two! As the Irish Music Magazine said, they have a “brilliance and beauty that brings tears to the eyes”. Chris is a master of his instrument and is witty, engaging and informative when educating an audience about the music they are about to play. Meanwhile, Máire takes her harp into uncharted territory, extending its boundaries into jazz, bluegrass and much more.

Friday 7th December 2018 – Bruce Molsky
Captivating singing and fiddle playing from the mountains
Bruce’s songs are so rooted in America’s old-time mountain music that his stage should be the front porch of a log cabin, which would quickly be surrounded by admiring fans of his captivating fiddle playing and singing. Yet as a boy he was a “street kid” in the Bronx who only escaped New York for the hills of Virginia in the 1970s. Bruce has given us many memorable evenings in the past and we’re ready for another.
