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 21st July 2017 – Robin Laing
Superb interpreter of traditional Scottish songs and writer of many new ones
Our summer season draws to a splendid conclusion with an evening of fun and laughter from Robin, a superb interpreter of traditional Scottish songs and writer of many new ones. He is a renowned Scotch whisky expert and has dedicated many of his musical works to the wee dram, as well as writing several books on the subject. Engaging, articulate, and armed with a terrific repertoire, ranging from atmospheric and passionate ballads to carefree compositions with plenty of scope for audience participation, Robin will have us raising a glass to holiday time.

A budding treasure of the traditional folk world
The ripe flavours of England’s West Country will fill the room when a budding treasure of the traditional folk world, Jim Causley, makes a return visit, this time as part of a trio with Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll on fiddles. Jim, who plays accordion and has a wonderfully strong, mature voice and gentle wit, is related to the celebrated poet Charles Causley and has put several of his poems to music. A huge talent.
