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 27th September 2019 – Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby
Captivating singer and brilliant guitarist
An incredibly busy duo who this year performed in New Jersey at the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Strawbs – Brian’s old band. Now back focusing on their own agenda, we get to hear Cathryn’s beautiful singing and Brian’s restrained but brilliant guitar playing – as well as their cosy, intimate banter – between each other and the audience. Their material spans the realms of folk, country and Americana and is always captivating.

Dazzling playing with splendid showmanship
Kit and Aaron, the virtuoso guitar and fiddle players from the band Sheelanagig, draw on many influences to create arrangements of traditional music, as well as their own compositions. Their shows are a musical journey through Europe, America and beyond, combining dazzling playing with fine musicality and showmanship. A debut album “The Fox” explores the relationship between fiddle, guitar and voice, and has won critical acclaim.

Friday 11th October 2019 – Salt House
Magnificent and gorgeous – from dramatic, to bright and breezy
The sound of Salt House ranges from atmospheric, dramatic, evocative and moody to bright and breezy – but most of all it is magnificent and gorgeous. The music created by Jenny Sturgeon (guitar and harmonium), Ewan MacPherson (guitar) and Lauren MacColl (fiddle and viola) feels both ancient and modern, conjuring up timeless images of landscapes and nature. This is an exceptional Scottish trio. Not to be missed.
