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.

All tickets have now sold – and because of heavy demand, we’re sorry that we’ve had to close the waiting list for returns, too.

Friday 2nd November 2018 – Dan McKinnon
Sensitive and warm-hearted – and powerful story-telling
We’ll be transported to the wilds of Nova Scotia by the mellow and melodic singing of this honey-voiced performer. Sensitive and warm-hearted, Dan has been compared to Stan Rogers and is an equally powerful story-teller, singing and playing with lilting passion and skill. Steeped in the history of his homeland, Dan combines original compositions with carefully crafted interpretations of traditional material.

Friday 9th November 2018 – Jenkins’ Ear
A mighty fanfare of voices that conjures up the spray of the sea
You can feel the sea breeze and taste the salty spray in the music of Jenkins’ Ear. When their five strong male voices, including Ram Club stalwart Ian Palmer, burst into the rhythm of a shanty, it is a mighty fanfare that reminds us how vital such work songs have always been. But there’s much more to Jenkins’ Ear than the robust life aboard ship, as they blend in the delicate and the intricate with some fine musicianship, too.
