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!

03/05/19 Ashes to Oaks Members £5 / Non-members £6
  Making their Woodman debut tonight we have 4 piece band Ashes To Oaks, although band member Robin Tudor has been a regular at the club for many years now. Robin is on violin in this line-up and the other band members are Jemma Lauren - Vocals, guitar and baritone ukulele, Russ Sargeant - double bass, guitar and vocals and Andy Shepherd - drums and percussion. They bill themselves as “UK-based, four-piece folk band that err on the side of good, alternative country music!” Sounds good to me.

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 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.

14/06/19 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!!

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?
