23/11/18 Ranagri Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Making their third visit to the club tonight we have the wonderful Ranagri (pronounced; Ra – na – gry [as in sky]) if I remember rightly from their last appearance in March of last year. Ranagri are four musicians from London with diverse musical backgrounds but a shared passion for folk music. They are Donal on vocals and guitar, Eliza on whistles/flutes, Jean on electric harp and Tad on bouzouki and bodhran. To quote Les, (our esteemed reviewer from the first time they appeared) “Ranagri are quite possibly one of the best bands we have seen this year. Their music is in the main self penned and lyrically has a folk feel to it, but the sound they produce is a mixture of music and rhythms from everywhere in the world. It is so very hard to find a genre to fit them into.” Sounds good to me!

30/11/18 Paul Downes Members £7 / Non-members £8
It was way back in March of 2014 that we had originally booked Paul with his musical partner Mick Ryan for the club but if you recall Mick had to cancel so we were treated to a solo performance from Paul and he did us proud! He’s since been back, with Mick, but tonight will be his second appearance on his own. Paul is a fantastically gifted guitarist and singer with a superb pedigree having worked with Phil Beer, The Arizona Smoke Review and many more. He is rightly regarded as one of the folk world’s finest musicians, and it is a real treat to see him deliver a solo performance. His guitar and banjo playing is effortless, and his vocals are crystal clear. Paul generates a genuine empathy with his audience and this will be a night you won’t want to miss.

14/12/18 THE INFAMOUS WOODMAN PANTO!
(Entrance price includes supper)
Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Well, once again we’ve trawled the depth of the talent pool to bring you a night you may well remember, (but would prefer to forget), for a very long time! Featuring at great lack of expense all your ‘favourite’ thespians from the hallowed vaults of both the Woodman and Bromsgrove folk clubs, here to tread the boards for your delectation, delight and inevitable dismay! You can’t fail to be really disappointed by their lack of, err….timing….diction….props, but the enthusiasm shines through and an evening of raucous hilarity is - highly unlikely but, well, just about possible I guess!

It is strongly rumoured that Fairfield may delight us all with some ‘musical treats’ towards the end of the festivities.

11/01/19 Will Morgan Members £4 / Non-members £5
  Relatively fresh from his triumphal night with us just a year ago we have the welcome return of Will Morgan. A leg-end in his own lunchtime is Will, a master of the witty retort and comic song and a wonderful interpreter of the Jake Thakray songbook most of which are funny lyrically anyway, but Will has the ability to add his own touch and his anecdotes just increase the hilarity. One of the organisers and resident performers at Brewood Folk Club, Will also performs traditional songs, monologues and tall stories all of which adds up to a great evening from a great entertainer.

18/01/19 John Richards, Emma Jones & Jim Sutton Members £7 / Non-members £8
Just a year since they’ve been with us the dynamic trio are back! Our old mate and club regular John has retired from performing…….well he did…… for about 5 minutes, realised how much he missed it and…..guess what….he’s back!! Admittedly no longer gigging with the full band but this trio of John, his daughter Emma and long time gig partner Jim, make a cracking full bodied sound and we are delighted to welcome them back to the club tonight. They are all excellent musicians and vocalists and John is simply a master of the art of songwriting, so expect a lot from tonight……..you’ll certainly get it!
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
25/01/19 Pete Kelly Members £5 / Non-members £6
  Just a year since his last appearance….it’s PK night!! As I’ve said before, you all know Pete – everybody knows Pete….he’s world famous from Tipton to Arizona and he might even bring along his pony! Pete has been delighting audiences both at the club, in other local venues and indeed further afield for many years now with his relaxed, easy style and long may he continue. An excellent guitarist; gifted songwriter; friend and long time supporter of the club and all round good egg. Welcome back Pete!

08/02/19 Lost Notes Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Once again, just a year since their club debut, The Lost Notes are (according to their website), “a five-piece band from Moseley, Birmingham, where politics, drunkenness and glee abound. It makes for a great night out”. Expect a fusion of several different styles all delivered in a very accomplished performance from excellent musicians with stunning harmony vocals. A warm Woodman return welcome to Ben, Oli, Lucy, Silas and Max……..The Lost Notes.

15/02/19 Kim Lowings & The Greenwood Members £8 / Non-members £9
  It’s always with very great pleasure that we welcome back Kim and the lads and they never fail to put on a brilliant night for us. They have been regular guests at the club for several years now and their musicianship, Kim’s vocals - backed up by Dave’s haunting harmonies - and their general charisma and stage presence have simply gone through the roof over the last few years. Their latest CD (Wild and Wicked Youth) is their best yet and will no doubt be on sale at the show along with their previous releases. Another unmissable night in store!
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
22/02/19 Other Roads Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Unbelievably it was actually in March of 2016 that we last welcomed Other Roads…..where on earth does the time go? Pete Abbott, Gregor Borland and Dave Walmisley make up this trio that have become one of the premier acts on the folk circuit today. Dave is one of the members of Risky Business who thankfully have now re-formed and are once again delighting audiences far and wide. Other Roads are regularly to be seen touring Europe performing at clubs and festivals, they are all excellent musicians on a variety of stringed instruments and with voices that blend in delightful harmony, we are in for a rousing night of Celtic inspired music and song.

08/03/19 Keith Donnelly Members £7 / Non-members £8
   Mr. Keith Donnelly. Well……what can you say about Keith Donnelly? Simply this – he’s an excellent guitarist, superb singer/songwriter, VERY funny man, first rate children’s entertainer so he’ll feel right at home with us lot!! His songs encompass the whole gamut of styles from comedy to sensitive ballads with some hot up-tempo stuff thrown into the mix for good measure. He will no doubt regale us with tales of his escapades during his many years of touring and performing in the UK and overseas. This will be Keith’s third foray into the Woodman den and will certainly be a night not to be missed!

15/03/19 Sunjay Members £7 / Non-members £8
  With us last in February last year when he was just fresh from his tour as Buddy Holly in the show, we are again delighted to welcome back our very own Sunjay. A stunningly gifted guitarist …..(to be honest we might as well all pack up now) – and a thoroughly nice guy to boot. Now recognized and in great demand throughout the year at clubs and festivals but he’ll always find time to return to his roots at the Woodman. Expect to stare open mouthed at his blistering fingerstyle playing…..I guarantee you will!

22/03/19 Steve Tilston Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Can you believe it was March of 2016 that we last welcomed one of our most popular regular artistes to the club, Mr. Steve Tilston. Well believe it or not it was but we’ll be remedying that tonight so don’t miss it whatever you do!
One of the premier names on the UK folk circuit and an international artiste too, Steve is a master of his instruments, primarily guitar but with other stringed variations too, as well as being a marvelous songwriter. He has released numerous CD’s over a long and illustrious career and we are proud to welcome him back to the club.

05/04/19 Anthony John Clarke Members £7 / Non-members £8
  September 2017 was his last Woodman appearance and tonight we welcome back our very good mate and club regular Anthony John Clarke. Well, what can you say about AJC? Almost a club resident, he’s only missed a couple of years since the beginning of the century!! He loves coming to the club, we love having him to entertain us so it’s perfect symmetry. Seriously, he really is an excellent singer/songwriter, something of a raconteur and an all round nice fella. You’ve all seen him many times before but he never fails to deliver a superb nights entertainment so sit back and enjoy.

12/04/19 Edwina Hayes Members £7 / Non-members £8
   Although many of you may well have encountered Edwina before, - she’s been a powerful presence on the folk club and festival scene for many years now – this will actually be her Woodman debut and we are extremely pleased to welcome her to the club. Edwina’s beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison as well as her own gigs playing stages everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall. The title track of her album ‘Pour Me A Drink’ was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England. As accolades go, they don’t come much better than that!

10/05/19 Jez Lowe Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Jez was last with us in May’15 appearing with his partner Kate Bramley……(the apple of his eye, hmm??) However, unbelievably, you have to cast your mind back to May 2012 since his last solo performance with us…..7 years!! That just doesn’t seem possible to me but apparently it is so. A prolific songwriter, gifted musician on several things with strings and a sartorial star of the stripey jumper/T-shirt, so sit back and enjoy a long overdue visit from one of the North East’s finest – Jez Lowe.

07/06/19 Dave Love Members £4 / Non-members £5
   Well what can I say about Dave Love? Dave is a much respected local singer/ songwriter and has played the Woodman many times in the past (although not for many years), so it's just brilliant to welcome him back. He has probably got the most hilariously twisted outlook on life possible and his quirky songs reflect this brilliantly. They are mainly funny renditions of the human condition, but several small animals may also feature from time to time. All of Dave's songs are cleverly written, so look out for the not so obvious double entendres and mystery titters hiding in his delivery. Oh and watch out for his quick-fire sense of fun, he shoots from the hip with deadly accuracy!!

14/06/19 Clive Gregson Members £8 / Non-members £9
  It’s been just over three years since Clive appeared at the club. He’s been a regular guest at the club for almost 20 years and is without doubt one of the most respected singer/songwriters on the folk scene today, both here in the UK, in mainland Europe and also in the States, where he has lived for many years. His songs have been covered by many top international performers, he’s appeared as a member of Richard Thompson’s band, toured with Nanci Griffiths and his now defunct, but long term partnership with Christine Collister was simply magical, as is his more recent collaboration with Liz Simcock. A solo artiste for many years now, he remains a very busy man, but he always tries to fit in a show at the Woodman whenever he’s over here.
