DATES NOW ADDED TO END OF JUNE 2018 !!

THIS WEEK...

we welcome    Churchfitters     as our guest!!

The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A bass guitar made out of a frying pan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw.
Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock bouzouki. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.

The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments:
adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, stand up dustbin bass and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble.
And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades. Throw in some exquisite harmonies, a slew of startlingly original songs
and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that always leaves audiences cheering.


"...totally brilliant and beautiful."    -    Mike Harding, a (self-confessed huge, huge fan.)

"I knew they came highly recommended but previous publicity had not prepared me for how amazing they are in the flesh!"    -    Suffolkonline.net

PAM COLLS

It is two 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.
