28/09/18 Mike Silver Members £7/ Non-members £8
  Although this will be his tenth visit to the club since the start of this century, it has actually been three years since we had a visit from Mike Silver! After many years of hard work Mike became an overnight success when the late Terry Wogan on Radio 2 played his song “A Matter of Pride” extensively. 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. He’s released a new CD since his last visit too so you might want to check out the merchandise table.

12/10/18 Gerry Colvin Band Members £10 / Non-members £11
  Gerry and the band played a storming show at the club in June of last year and we are thrilled and delighted to welcome them back for a third visit. 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 – not to mention frenetic enthusiasm! 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!

19/10/18 Winter Wilson Members £7 / Non-members £8
  This will be the third visit to the club for the aptly named pairing of Kip Winter & Dave Wilson who have been delighting club and festival audiences for some time now with their masterful renditions of beautiful songs, beautifully sung. Stunning harmonies, thought-provoking and often challenging lyrics, all held together with an infectious, off-the-wall humour all of their own. They had a triumphant night with us back in November 2016 and we are delighted to welcome them back again.

26/10/18 Becky Mills & Ruth Angell Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Whilst we have enjoyed the singing and playing of Becky Mills in the past when she was performing in a duo with Patsy Matheson, we haven’t yet had the pleasure of this latest pairing with Ruth Angell so this will be another Woodman ‘first’. I don’t know a lot about Ruth other than that she sings, plays guitar, violin and sometimes pump harmonium, but I do know that, as a duo, they have recently been performing with a star-studded cast in a show called ‘From Psychedelia to Sonnets’, (also available on CD), which chronicles the musical journey of one of the folk scene’s legends, Mr. Ashley Hutchings. You don’t get invited into that gig unless you’re pretty special! There are a few snippets of them available on You Tube that you might like to check out.

09/11/18 Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer Members £8 / Non-members £9
   Making a very welcome second visit to the club after their triumphal debut evening in February of last year we are again hosting Vicki and Jonny and their quirky mix of songs, tunes and instruments! Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition. Out of this combination they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Be entranced by the haunting nyckelharpa, amazed at the cow horn, (one of the worlds earliest communication devices), and meet some of the bagpipes that didn’t come from Scotland. Their evenings are packed with toe tapping tunes and songs of love, death, trains and dressing up, (not always at the same time), all presented with sparkling gentle humour, lots of smiles and skilful musicianship.

16/11/18 Kris Dollimore Members £7 / Non-members £8
  Tonight brings another artist making his Woodman debut, in the form of Kris Dollimore. During a career in music, spanning four decades, Kris has graced some of the world's greatest stages and has played with many international bands and artists including The Godfathers, The Damned, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Adam Ant and Del Amitri. His guitar skills have always been admired, in whichever genre he has played. With largely an acoustic repertoire, a fair portion of that being instrumental, in the vein of John Fahey and Jack Rose, precision playing is expected and delivered. If you know him from his past life, don't fear change. Follow Kris down new roads and you'll feel all the richer for it. Welcome to the Woodman Kris!

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.

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.

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.

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.
