John Kirkpatrick


We are delighted to welcome back once again John Kirkpatrick, who was the very first guest of the club when it started some ten years ago!  Renowned throughout the country as one of our finest box players, John has been a seminal figure in the English Folk scene for many years, having been a member of such fine bands as Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey and The Albion Band in addition to his solo and duo performances.  A highly entertaining and lively evening is guaranteed.  Our Christmas Concerts are always very well supported, to we strongly recommend booking at ticket in advance with Anne (see below).   

Support will be ably provided by our old friends, The Daily Beggars. 

Additionally there will be mince pies, mulled wine and carols from 6.30 and there are also dark rumors concerning a "mummers play"!  What more could you ask?
