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 24th February 2017 – Joe Topping & Scott Poley
Great guitar playing and Joe’s smooth vocals create a special blend for audiences to savour
Joe Topping is a regular star at the Ram Club, having appeared with a list of great performers – and Scott Poley is no exception. Scott is a producer, songwriter and session musician – and one of the most able guitar sidesmen in the business. Joe is some mean guitar player, too, and so with his warm, silky voice and Scott’s fretboard wizardry, this is an extra special blend to savour.

Friday 3rd March 2017 – Sunjay
Classic acoustic folk-blues from a ground-breaking young performer
A stimulating evening centred around the story-telling traditions of classic acoustic folk-blues is in store – with plenty of surprises thrown in. The latest album released by Sunjay, a British singer-guitarist of Asian descent, is called “Black and Blues” and on it he features material from the US – the type of songs and legendary tales sung by bar-room singers. Sunjay was a revelation on his first visit to the club a couple of years ago and now, with a little extra maturity and experience, he has come to find his own unique voice.

Friday 10th March 2017 – Craobh Rua
A must-see band described as ‘nothing short of spectacular’
This is a powerful, dynamic yet sensitive Belfast band that delivers some of the finest renditions of traditional Irish music you could ever hear. They play an array of instruments, including banjo, mandolin, fiddle, uilleann pipes, tin whistle, guitar and vocals to forge a rich, warm sound, with enough performers to fill our small stage to overflowing. The repertoire revolves around energetic jigs and reels and moving waltzes and ballads. This is a must-see band that has been described as “nothing short of spectacular”.
