The ram guitar pictures to print-colour2bRam 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 November 2017 – Gigspanner

Haunting music of great intelligence and imagination

One week it’s a Fairport Convention link, the next it’s Steeleye Span! Since his departure from the Steeleye folk-rock pioneers at the end of 2013, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his Gigspanner trio, and in the process has established their reputation as one of the most genuinely innovative acts on the folk/roots scene. They take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and produce richly atmospheric arrangements layered in a wealth of musical influences.  With a rock influence from superb guitarist Roger Flack and rhythms of the world from percussionist Sacha Trochet, they produce haunting music of great intelligence and imagination. This autumn’s tour by the band marks the launch of their new album ‘The Wife of Urban Law’.

Traditional songs presented in a way that reflects our age

He is also an arch collaborator, working with, and influencing, a host of the folk world’s stars. A highly skilled multi-instrumentalist with a sweet voice, Jim brings folk music bang up to date. Mojo magazine calls his new album “Upcetera” a masterpiece.

Friday 8th December 2017 – Archie Fisher

An evening in the presence of the master

Archie has the spellbinding voice of a singer who has honed his craft over the decades as he caresses his guitar in perfect accompaniment. Between songs, his genial tales of life in Scotland bring laughter, as do his clever and witty lyrics, while his poignant ballads are heart-rending. Many artists have paid tribute to his writing skill by covering his works, such as his stirring anthem “The Final Trawl”.
