Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Music Nights are normally held on the first Friday of the month – from September to July at the Ansell Centre, Market Place, Hadleigh IP7 5DU.
We feature folk music in the broadest sense of the word. In addition to “traditional” and “contemporary” folk music, you can expect to hear hints of pop, country, jazz or even classical music.
Our doors open at 7.45 and the music starts at 8 o’clock.
WE HAVE FLOOR SPOTS AVAILABLE FOR SOME OF OUR CLUB EVENINGS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PLAYING FOR 10 MINUTES OR SO ON ONE OF THESE DATES, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
Each evening starts with a number of “Floor spots” – where anyone can come
along and perform: singing songs or playing an instrumental. In practice, it’s
advisable for would-be performers to contact us in advance to book a spot.
Next, after a short break, is our Featured Guest: a 30-minute performance from an
individual or group.
Finally, after another short break, our Main guest finishes the evening with a
60-minute performance. Our evenings finish around 10.30.
Unusually this year, we have two club nights in one month. On September 30 our Main guests are Kerraleigh and Martin, The August List, a duo from Oxfordshire, who describe themselves thus: We play backwards country / porch folk music with a startling roack and roll attitude. Acoustic guitars, kick drums, harmonicas and our voices are deployed with passion on songs that take in life, love, death and merry making. You can find out more about the duo on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/theaugustlistmusic
and listen to some of their songs on Bandcamp at http://theaugustlist.bandcamp.com/
Our featured guest is Green, Tricker and Ward, a local trio who specialise in American folk and country material.
Entry price is £5.00. (£2.00 for under 16s)
There is no bar at the Ansell Centre, but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.
There is plenty of free parking within easy walking distance of the venue.
