GRACE PETRIE Wednesday 15 February at 8.30pm at Carrington Folk Club

grace-petrieGrace exploded on the protest scene six years ago with her emotive anthem “Farewell to Welfare” which captured the spirit of the new wave of dissent in austerity Britain, Her unique take on life, love and politics, plus the warmth and wit in her delivery, have made her one of the most respected songwriters in the UK.
Her latest release “Whatever’s Left” takes her beyond protest, through political and personal change to emerge through shades of folk, Americana and country as a mature song-writing voice, yet she’s still under 30.

Reg Meuross at Carrington Folk Club Wednesday 18 January 2017

reg-meurossHappy new year to all
Our guest on Wednesday 18 January is REG MEUROSS, who returns after 5 years having made many new admirers after his performances at Costa del Folk in April. The Guardian said he “sounds like a forgotten American 60s classic with echoes of Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen”. Since he was last here, his songs have moved from historical ‘Jesus Wept’ to political, with ‘England Green & England Grey’ standing out. He plays a 1944 Martin guitar which he’ll tell you about at the club and will promote his latest CD ‘December’.
We’d like to see you at the club at 8.30 particularly if you are a singers or musician, because it’s hard to fit floor singers in between the interval and our guests’ second set. Admission is £6 for members and £9 for non members. Membership costs £6.00 per year.
