Friday 30th June 2017 – Pete Morton

A modern day troubadour; a chronicler of our times

Pete is a chronicler of our times with an eye and an insight for what really matters and an ear for a catchy tune. Most famous for writing “Another Train”, and “Shepherds Song”, Pete has a vast catalogue of funny, astute, moving and meaningful songs. Switching from playing punk rock to folk music at the age of 16 gave him a rare perspective and he has since turned himself into a modern day troubadour. He always has an easy rapport with the Ram Club audience, with intelligent and witty chat and a charming stage presence.

Friday 7th July 2017 – The Black Feathers

Stunning duo; blissfully simple and beautiful singing and playing

Relish an unmissable evening of blissfully simple and beautiful singing and playing from this stunning Gloucester-based duo – Ray Hughes, originally from Dublin, on guitar and vocals, and singer Sian Chandler. They have the most gorgeously well-matched voices and prove that Americana roots music is not necessarily best played by Americans: they are like a two-person Union Station. Their debut EP, “Strangers We Meet”, was listed in The Telegraph as one of 2014’s best folk albums. Their self-penned material is first-rate – and for sheer class, check out their cover version of “New South Wales” on their website.

Friday 14th July 2017 – Jack Blackman

This young singer-songwriter is surely going places

Catch Jack while you can. This young singer-songwriter is going places with his deliciously fluid and natural guitar playing and accomplished vocals. His original songs have been described as a “full length masterpiece” and, with a varied repertoire, he can tackle a smooth ballad with grace and follow it by mastering an up-tempo blues number with swirling slide guitar. Only 23 and already working on his third album, Jack’s blues-infused acoustic roots music will be the perfect accompaniment to a warm July evening.

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.
