Hadleigh Folk & Acoustic Music Nights

Our French Weekend Programme 6-8 April is now complete


Our main guests for February are Andy Matthewson and Lisa Winship, a duo from the Reading area. Andy’s played for us before as a solo singer/guitarist and his choice of songs and instrumental pieces went down brilliantly with our audience. This time he comes with Lisa Winship, an impressive vocalist as well as a talented songwriter.  Here’s a taste of what to expect

You can find out more about Andy and Lisa here.

Our Featured guests are Capstan Full Strength, an East Anglia group originally formed to sing sea shanties. Since those early days, they have branched out and now sing a wide range of folk-related songs, many of which  have choruses for  audiences to join in with. Here’s a sample recorded last year at a day organised by Suffolk Folk..

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.
