Put your name down on the list at the door of our concerts, email reservations.willowsfolkclub@gmail.com or ring Liz on 01253 640959 to reserve your spot if you would like to sing, play, recite or otherwise entertain us!

Our Singers' Nights aim to support a charity chosen by our club volunteers. Jan and Sue have chosen Home-Start.

"Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times.

 

We are there for parents when they need us the most

because childhood can’t wait.

 

Home-Start works with families in communities right across the UK. Starting in the home, our approach is as individual as the people we’re helping. No judgement, it is just compassionate, confidential help and expert support."

Their nearest shop is on St Albans Road in St Annes.

Donation on the door.

February 2nd  -  Jon Brindley

A multi-instrumentalist and singer, Jon has played and sung in piano bars, at some of the larger folk festivals, art galleries, country festivals, pubs, arts centres, care homes, band stands, on street corners and café terraces all over Europe.

He has explored music through many forms. Celtic melodies, blues, contemporary folk, country, rock, popular songs and traditional ballads can all be picked out of his repertoire and it’s usually his own interpretations. 

With his fiddle handed down from his Grandma he might play one or two of his compositions or sing his songs yet there’s still a catalogue of songs you’ll know and love that are carried by Jon’s strong, soulful voice.

Entrance £10

February 16th - PLUMHALL

 

 

PLUMHALL (Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall) are an electrifying duo from Yorkshire whose award winning original songs are earning them well deserved plaudits from the likes of Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff), Phil Beer and Steve Knightley (Show of Hands), R2 Magazine and many more.

 

PLUMHALL pack a punch with powerful acoustic (occasional electric) guitar and luscious harmony-driven textures of original contemporary folk rock.

“A superduo...a wealth of talent...a real sense of passion and attack” - Fatea Magazine

Entrance £10

March 2nd - Steve Tilston

with Hugh Bradley

Steve is one of our most celebrated songsmiths, widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music; the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.

Fatea Awards Male Vocalist of the Year 2015, proof, if needed, that after 45 years in the business Steve can still deliver the goods; His CD Truth to Tell was one of The Telegraph’s best folk albums of 2015. 

The writer of the classic songs The Slipjigs and Reels, Here’s to Tom Paine, The Naked Highwayman and the award-winning The Reckoning, he is also a published author. Steve’s first novel All for Poor Jack is an historical tale set in Bristol and the New World, full of colourful characters and it’s a mighty good read!

Steve will be accompanied by Hugh Bradley.
