OUR NEXT DATE IS FRIDAY MAY 11
Unusually for Hadleigh our Folk and Acoustic Music Night this month is on 11th. He have two local acts: Harbour Lights Trio and Terry Hiscock.
Harbour Lights Trio consists of Rob Neal, Derek Simpson and the “singing gamekeeper” Alvar Smith, often seen in pub sessions around Blaxhall and Snape as well as regular performers at folk clubs and national festivals. Their material features traditional songs and tunes, music hall numbers and a few more recent gems. The emphasis is on entertainment and audience participation. If you enjoy joining in rousing choruses this is a night you should not miss. The trio’s songs and humour are certainly infectious. Find out more about the trio on their Acoustic East page
Our Featured guest has appeared several times at Hadleigh: the popular singer-songwriter and excellent guitarist, Terry Hiscock. Back in the day he was a founder member of the folk-rock group Hunter Muskett, who played alongside Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. Watch a video of Terry playing at a Hedingham music night.
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.
