Friday 3rd March

Feature night with

Ed Conway and the Unlawful Men

conway

Formed in November 2013 we came together to take old folk songs and give them a respectful kick up the arse. Traditional songs, traditional instruments; fresh approach. Some call us reckless, some call us heroes, some call us Sharon, all call us Unlawful...and men.

Based in Newport Shropshire we have played gigs all over the country. With years of combined experience our set is a blend of traditional folk songs with new arrangements, and our own original material. Guaranteed to make you pick up your ears, raise an eyebrow, or tap a foot.

Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

Paul Walker and Karen Pfeiffer are a vocal and guitar duo whose onstage chemistry, vocal harmonies & memorable songs captivate audiences wherever they perform. Sharing vocal duties, they each have individual styles which combine to provide a unique and memorable experience.

Paul, from Staffordshire & Karen, from Ludwigsburg, Germany, perform continually around the Midlands along with frequent visits to Ireland & Germany. Describing their diverse musical style isn't easy but as one German newspaper recently put it 'Songs with Groove & Goose Bumps guaranteed' might be a pretty good start.

Friday 9th June

WITH FEATURE GUESTS

The Laners

laners

 

The Laners have been entertaining audiences in pubs and clubs and at festivals for a quarter of a century, and have had various formations over the years. For most of the time, they've been a four-piece group but are now a trio - Dave Tarry (now the only original member), Derek Wheeler and Clive Brooks.

Most of their material comprises English traditional folk songs but they also sing some shanties and an increasing number of the many fabulous contemporary songs that are coming into the tradition.

Almost all of their songs have big choruses, so audience participation is mandatory - just sitting and listening isn t an option.
