OUR NEXT DATE FRIDAY JANUARY 5 2018
In January our main guests are Bijoux Toots a group based on the Suffolk/North Essex border. They’re a talented bunch of musicians who focus on strong vocal harmonies, combined with accordion, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, guitar, ukulele and double-bass. Where Bluegrass and Folk traditions cohabit with Pop and Rock to bring a refreshingly curious twist to the covers band formula. Watch them below.
Our Featured Guest is Stan Harvey. Stan did a floor spot a few months ago and impressed us with his rendition of songs by American songwriters from the 1940s to the present day.
You can find out more about Stan on his website here.
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.
Our 2017-2018 programme is now complete. Check here.
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.
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.
