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 20th July 2018 – Tom McConville Band
Stunning collection of skills promises a magnificent crescendo
A group of musicians to be reckoned with – and who will end our summer season with a magnificent crescendo. Tom’s fiery fiddle playing and vocals are enough on their own but when enhanced by the stunning accordion skills of Shona Kipling, the sheer quality of Phil Murray’s acoustic bass, and the exquisite guitar of David Newey the result is explosive. The music will range from moving ballads and sweet harmonies to stirring Irish and Scottish tune sets – all held together by Tom and his band’s love of humour and fun.

Friday 7th September 2018 – Fara
An absolute blast with four brilliant young friends from Orkney
Four brilliant young women from Orkney built on their life-long friendship to form this scintillating group, made up of three fiery fiddles and a sweet sounding piano – plus perfect vocal harmonies and great tunes, both traditional and self-penned. Their Ram Club debut was an absolute blast and it will be a real treat to have Jennifer Austin, Kristan Harvey, Jeana Leslie and Catriona Price back with us to kick off the autumn season.

Friday 14th September 2018 – Luke Daniels
Combination of old and new described as ‘poetical’ and ‘intense’
Luke has a terrific musical pedigree as a BBC award winner, a former Riverdance band member and collaborator with the likes of Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, Cara Dillon and De Dannan. His recent solo shows have featured an original 19th century Polyphon “musical box” machine and his combination of contemporary and ancient roots music has been acclaimed as “intense” and “poetical”.
