I have been running the Bermondsey Folk Club for 3 months now & it’s growing into a lovely community. The first 3 events have been monthly singarounds which have been well attended even on the very cold February date. On that occasion some sensible souls brought a duvet with them, which is sensible as the space we meet in, Shortwave Cafe (on Clements Road, around the corner from Bermondsey tube), is not the warmest. However the acoustic is excellent, lending itself to unamplified music.
I am adding another regular night. This will be a featured artist night & will be on the third Saturday of each month. This night will have plenty of floor spots & also a longer performance from an established folk act. This will be a lot of fun.
The first club night is Saturday 21 April from 6pm & the featured artists are Ruth & Rupert, who are some of South London’s finest! Follow this link for the facebook event.
Accompanying their close harmonies with delicate clawhammer banjo and guitar lines, Ruth and Rupert play folk songs and tunes from the British Isles and America. Their deep-reaching repertoire includes both traditional and original songs.
Ruth and Rupert run well-loved south London folk club TOOTING FOLK which has been going a good 5 years now, and also perform as The Bara Bara Band.
