At last we are back at Mum’s !



Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer are among the guests who have played live for our online  evenings during lockdown - it was lovely to hear them, and the nyckelharpa again!

Just before lockdown Alden Patterson & Dashwood gave us a splendid afternoon in the Shaftesbury Hall.

Looking further back ...

Granny's Attic entertained us with varied, spirited, brilliantly performed songs old and new.


Pete Morton, our favourite troubadour has given us several rousing evenings.

Oka Vanga, a duo from Hertford, gave us a lovely summer evening.

Steve Turner, a genial guest performer, gave us brilliant songs with a focus on the sea, accompanied on the guitar, concertina and ukelele.

The Cruel Mothers,Carol Burtt and Sarah Jones, performed a great evening of songs from the darker side of the folk tradition. Theirstunning harmonies and sensitive guitar accompaniment (and the fact that they are perfectly nice people!) softened this plunge into themes of betrayal, death and madness.


To kick off 2018, Tom Lewis gave us a splendid  evening of songs and stories of the sea old and new, accompanying himself on button accordion and ukulele.

The Goat Roper Rodeo Band gave us an enormously energetic evening - "wonderfully executed acoustic country blues with two guitars, a double bass and plaintive striking harmonies". Their fame is spreading, but you saw them here first!
