Friday 1st March 2019 – Sunjay

A young man performing with maturity and making a name for himself

Sunjay is a young man making a splash in the music world. He also knows his own mind and performs with a maturity that can make any audience feel at ease. Initially inspired to play guitar on hearing Buddy Holly records being played at home, Sunjay has recorded an album of Holly’s songs and even has the glasses to match. But his repertoire stretches far and wide, embracing folk, jazz, blues and pop. He’s always a welcome visitor to our stage.

Friday 8th March 2019 – James Riley

Thoughtful songwriter described as ‘awesome’, ‘exquisite’ and ‘phenomenal’

James makes moving, soulful and atmospheric music. He wrote his first melody aged four and was playing guitar by the age of nine. From his native south-east London, he later busked across Europe to Istanbul and returned with songs that became the source for his EPs, and now an album recorded in Nashville to be released in the spring. A deft guitar player and confident singer, he has been called “awesome”, “exquisite” and “phenomenal”.

Friday 15th March 2019 – Simon Mayor & Hilary James

Gloriously funny, inclusive and diverse

Simon is a mandolin virtuoso – so good, he wrote the book on how to play; Hilary is a smooth-as-silk guitarist and fine player of the magnificent mandobass – recognisably mandolin-shaped, but huge. They tackle genres from folk and blues to pop, jazz and even classical. Their shows are gloriously funny, inclusive and diverse – one minute an evocative Irish ballad, the next a comic children’s song and the next something by Handel.

Friday 22nd March 2019 – The Luck

Fun-loving duo with a refreshing and lively pop-country feel

This delightful and fun-loving brother and sister duo bring their refreshing and lively sound, with its pop-country feel, to our stage for the first time. There’s a ringing clarity to their vocals that creates bright and powerful harmonies – and their songs feature some mighty melodies. They developed their craft in the US after winning a Nashville songwriting competition. From London, Max Luck plays guitar and sister Esmay the bass.

Friday 29th March 2019 – The Georgia Shackleton Trio

New and traditional material comes spectacularly to life

Beautifully atmospheric sounds filled the room on this band’s debut a couple of years ago. Georgia Shackleton’s fiddle and vocals set the tone, with Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin) bringing it all spectacularly to life: it will be great to have them back. Self-penned material sits comfortably alongside cleverly reworked traditional music, tinged with the original flavours of their native East Anglia.

Friday 5th April 2019 – Tim Edey

Audiences sit open-mouthed in astonishment at his extraordinary powers

Tim’s extraordinary powers make him an outstanding player of any instrument he picks up. Simply admiring his mind-boggling virtuosity on the melodeon and guitar is a special treat – but add in his singing, some tremendous tunes and his bewitching sense of fun, and audiences sit open-mouthed in astonishment. Tim is unique and has played with the greats – including The Chieftains, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon and plenty more.

Friday 12th April 2019 – Mairearad Green & Anna Massie

Magnetic presence from a super-talented pair

More incredible musicianship is on the programme as this super-talented pair from the Scottish Highlands make a welcome return to the Ram Club. We can expect tunes both intricate and powerful from Mairearad on guitar, banjo and fiddle and Anna on accordion and bagpipes, plus songs to warm the heart. After a decade as a duo, and with similar upbringings, they work intuitively together, with a magnetic and appealing stage presence.
