Chippy Folk Club  - packed to the rafters

Another full house on 9th April 2018 at the Art Yard Café with lots of people choosing to come early and enjoy a meal first (great menu!).

Special thanks and welcome to those performing for the first time - Our ukulele duet Cathy and Rosemary for ‘The Sloop John B’, Helen joining Rachel and co for ‘Catch the Wind’, Raymond with Psalm 31 and Bee, beautifully performing her own song ‘Even there’.

It was an evening of new collaborations - some planned and some spontaneous but all well-received and roundly applauded!
We have many talented singer-songwriters, including Paul, Dave, Terry, Colin and Pete whose songs and guitar playing always delight.  We also heard some fantastic renditions of traditional numbers including Marcus’ ‘Foggy Dew’, Ian’s ‘Once I had a Sweetheart’ and Kate’s ‘Raggle Taggle Gypsy’. Also accomplished covers by Bev and Tony with ‘Jolene’ and the Brothers with ‘Heart of Gold’. Plus super contributions from Rosie on the harp, Clare, Lynne and Jonathan and others. Thank you to all our talented performers.
