Long-standing exponents in the art of  B  l  u  e  g  r a  s  s  !

Grassroots are a band from the south-east . Their first appearance with us was about 30 years ago and they still play standing up !

Original members:

  • Terry McCarthy - guitar and lead/harmony vocals
  • Ron Nesbitt - bass and lead/harmony vocals
  • Barry Martyn - mandolin
  • Kelvin Fosberry - banjo, dobro and harmony vocals

New member:

  • Rick Townend - has played fiddle with Grassroots since autumn 2003

They made their mark with a combination of smooth and attractive vocal harmonies, interesting and well-worked-out arrangements, and quality instrumental work; they made an LP album and played all over the UK, and also in America.

They are are now one of the tightest bands around with a humourous presentation. Not to be missed!

Dartford Folk Club organiser Pam Colls says: "We are delighted to welcome the band to Dartford again. With five such talented and highly regarded musicians, this promises to be another very special evening of entertainment."
