THIS WEEK...

we welcome    Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman    as our guests!!

One of Ireland's most influential traditional musicians, Máire has been described by the late Derek Bell of the Chieftains as,
'the most interesting and original player of the Irish harp today' and as 'the greatest Celtic harper of our age', by Live Ireland

Chris began to play guitar at the age of four and at fourteen played his first paid gig in a folk club.
A prolific composer, arranger and record producer, he has played with luminaries of many musical worlds: folk, jazz and comedy!

Together, their performances are rooted but eclectic, emotional but adventurous:
a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music, swing jazz, bluegrass and baroque, coupled with striking new compositions and Chris’s delightfully subversive wit.

"Virtuosic, fascinating, dramatic, original, inspired, gloriously adventurous, dazzling, brilliant,
stunning, impassioned, electrifying, bewitching, moving, achingly beautiful, influential, revered, unique..."

PAM COLLS

It is nearly three years since our very dear friend Pam Colls passed away.
Co-founder of the Dartford Folk Club, with her husband Alan, they ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
The Dartford Folk Club continues to run as usual, with Alan at the helm and a small team of original members supporting him, in memory of and as a legacy to Pam's amazing love for music.
