28/06/19 Fragile Hearts Members £4 / Non-members £5
  Having recently delighted our merry throng at singer’s nights we have now elevated the Fragile Hearts to a well deserved night of their own. Steve Nesbitt and Helena Rosewell formed this contemporary folk duo just a few months ago, but have already started to build a reputation as highly captivating performers. Steve’s songwriting, haunting melodies and accomplished guitar playing will tug at your heartstrings. Helena trained as a cellist at the Royal College of Music in London. Her enchanting cello playing brings a depth and beauty to the music that makes The Fragile Hearts a unique and engaging experience. Welcome to the Woodman folks.

05/07/19 Risky Business Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Tonight we are proud to welcome back our old friends “The Riskies.” It’s been a fraction over two years since we hosted them after we’d all thought they’d packed it in, but no, they’re touring again and even better that we’ve got them to delight us at the club this evening! We’re all familiar with the wonderful musicianship and vocals of Ruth & Ken Powell but now with the addition of Dave Walmisley (known to us through Other Roads), we will be in for a real treat. Wonderful vocalists, superb musicians…..what’s not to like?

19/07/19 Gary Edward Jones Band Members £8 / Non-members £9
  October ’16 was the last time we hosted Gary and the band so it’s certainly time for this return visit and fitting that they provide the finale to this excellent season, Gary is a singer-songwriter from Liverpool, with a voice so reminiscent of Paul Simon that he has recently completed a tour entitled “Something About Simon” in homage to his muse. His debut CD, ‘The Cabinet Maker’ was released some while ago to great acclaim. As many of you will remember from his previous visits Gary has penned some beautiful songs so the night will be filled with his own stuff plus, maybe the occasional cover. Gary plays guitar and takes lead vocals and will be joined this time by his wife Elizabeth on fiddle and mandolin, Jon Fellowes on guitars and Dan Logan on percussion. We promised they’d be back – now here they are!

20/09/19 Robin Laing Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Unless I’m mistaken (which believe me has been known!) this will be Robin’s first visit to the Woodman and very welcome he is too. Scotsman Robin is one of the UK’s finest singer- songwriters and has been performing, touring and recording for many years. His first CD’s were produced as a semi-pro musician in the ‘80’s but Robin went full time in 1996 and hasn’t stopped since. An acknowledged expert/connoisseur of uisge beatha, (the water of life) or whisky to you and me, he regularly tours his one-man whisky show - often with tastings - what a guy!! He’s recorded many CD’s and also writes books about his favourite subject and I’m sure the merch table will be well stocked.
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
27/09/19 Mike Silver Members £8 / Non-members £9
  This will be Mike’s eleventh visit to the club since the start of this century, which just goes to show how popular he is with us all. After many years of hard work he became an ‘overnight success’ when the late Terry Wogan played his song “A Matter of Pride” extensively on Radio 2. Mike is probably one of the most popular performers on the folk scene and his visits to The Woodman invariably become one of the highlights of the year. With his easy, laid back style, golden voice and superb songs it is certainly a night you will not want to miss.

04/10/19 The Jigantics Members £8/ Non-members £9
  Tonight brings us a very welcome return of The Jigantics. We had them in 2015, we had them in 2016 and they just about crept in to 2017, so this will be the fourth visit to the club from this lively folk/rock band, who are guaranteed to get your toes tapping and shakers shakin’! There’s a fairly reliable rumour that they’ve now recruited a ukulele player so there it’ll be a different line up than we’ve had before. They went down so well on previous visits that a return booking was immediately on the cards. Great musicianship combined with powerful vocals ensures that tonight will be appeal to the Woodman crowd……...just don’t expect to be quietly serenaded off to sleep!!

18/10/19 Dave Gibb Members £6 / Non-members £7
  Tonight we will be hosting a welcome return of Dave Gibb. All the way from bonny Scotland just to entertain you lucky people! He describes himself as ‘a left-handed, balding, middle aged, songwriting folky from Scotland’s highest village’ and that’s a pretty good summing up really. If you’ve managed to catch him at a festival or on one of his previous visits to the club then you’ll know what you’re in for. If not come down and find out - you won’t be disappointed, I can guarantee it! Dave is an excellent singer songwriter, no mean guitar picker either and he’s sure to raise a chortle or two with his anecdotes of life on the road. You will no doubt be instructed to….. ‘SING’!!
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
25/10/19 Flossie Malavialle Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Tonight heralds a welcome return for the Woodman’s favourite chanteuse, our very own Flossie! She was last with us on the finale night of the summer 2018 season and gave us a memorable night as always. As most of you will know Flossie has been a club regular for many years now and certainly enjoys coming to the club as much as we love to have her…….she never quite knows what to expect from the Woodman audience, and we never disappoint her! With a delightful voice and her trusty Gibson guitar she will no doubt refer to her à la carte song list and bring us some chansons d’amour with a dash of savoir-faire to enhance our joie de vivre!! Welcome back Flossie.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
01/11/19 Roger Davies Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Roger is another new name to the club. A fairly recent convert to full time professional performer, he got his big break when a friend put a copy of his last album, Local Radio, in the hands of Fairport Convention's bass player Dave Pegg who was so impressed by what he heard he invited him to open their UK winter tour shows, with 26 dates spanning from Inverness in the far north down to Cornwall in the south-west! Not a bad start to a career in folk-music I reckon. Let’s make sure we give him a rousing Woodman welcome.

22/11/19 Kuschty Rye Members £7/ Non-members £8
  This should be a really interesting and entertaining night. Kuschty Rye is the title of a song by the late lamented Ronnie Lane and that gives us a clue as to what we have in store tonight. Enter Des Horsfall. Thirty years on he’s trying to capture the spirit of Lane’s endeavour on a trilogy of albums that he hopes will reflect the original Ronnie Lane & Slim Chance releases. The first two albums, ‘The Good Gentleman’s Tonic’ and ‘The Bastards Tin’ are already available and the third one is a work in progress. They deliver a rootsy, acoustic based run through of blues, folk and Cajun influenced songs that approach the likes of Ron Kavana. No idea who will constitute the band tonight…..but I love surprises!

13/12/19 Woodman Panto (includes buffet) Members £7 / Non-members £8
So, what can we expect this year I wonder? It could well be Sleeping Beauty…….but with a Mother Goose backdrop (backdrops are in limited and not-very-varied supply), OR possibly Robinson Crusoe…..who has magically acquired 7 new dwarf friends and a magic lamp!! Who knows….and more to the point, who cares? All I can say with relative certainty is that the magnificent troupe of thespians of The Woodman Amateur Theatrical Society (T.W.A.T.S.), that we all know and err…..tolerate, will be treading the boards again in dubious style for our delectation and delight. As usual a magnificent buffet supper will be provided in the all-inclusive price, so there is definitely something to look forward to!!

10/01/20 Eddy Morton Trio Members £6 / Non-members £7
  Eddy has been at the club on many past occasions and in many different guises, from the Bushburys to enhancing Sunjay’s set, so it’ll be a real pleasure to have him entertain us tonight in this trio line-up. He will be joined on stage by Andy Jones, fiddler extraordinaire and Paul Hodson on keyboards I believe. Paul is a lecturer in music technology and also a well known producer who has worked with many international, high-profile artistes. He is also an ex-member of the Bushburys.
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
17/01/20 John Richards Band Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Once again and almost a year to the day after their last visit we are delighted to be hosting The John Richards Band again. These days John’s band is a bit of a ‘moveable feast’ in that, you never know quite what you will get! He has scaled down operations from his regular band gigging days however I believe tonight we will be royally entertained by John, Emma Jones, Jim Sutton and Julia Disney. John always puts on a good show in whatever guise so be sure to catch this one, it’ll be worth it!
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
24/01/20 Pete Kelly Members £5 / Non-members £6
  Tonight we have the very welcome return, for the umpteenth time, of our old friend Pete Kelly. Again it was, strangely enough, one year ago that he last appeared – we seem to be following a bit of a pattern here?? 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, although I doubt it after last year’s ‘accident’….the cleaners have never forgiven us! Pete has been delighting audiences 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!

21/02/20 Kim Lowings & The Greenwood Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Tonight we have a very welcome appearance of our good friends, Kim Lowings and The Greenwood. 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 couple of 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!

20/03/20 Gerry Colvin Band Members £10 / Non-members £12
  Tonight it’s the return of the fantastic Gerry Colvin Band. Gerry and the band last played a storming show at the club in October of 2018 and we are thrilled and delighted to welcome them back for what will be their fourth visit to the club. A ‘slightly eccentric’ performer I think it would be fair to say, who writes all of the band’s material and performs it with real feeling. His songs are often quirky, sometimes very funny, always very skilfully written and presented in many varied ways, from rousing, full-band accompaniment to solo voice with just a double bass which makes your hair stand on end! You’ll need to be early for this one – we’ll be full!

17/04/20 Landermason Members £6 / Non-members £7
  Tonight sees another visit of Landermason for their third appearance the club. Landermason are vocal and multi-instrumentalist Fiona Lander and Paul Mason on vocals and guitar. They have developed a unique sound which displays a high degree of virtuosity and with which they combine both traditional and contemporary folk with jazz and other musical styles. They have so far released 5 CD’s and have appeared on BBC radios 2, 3 and 4. Now getting increasingly known on the folk and festival circuit, and last with us back in July ’18 so not to be missed I reckon!
