Ray Cooper

Plus Corinne Lucy



Book now

Ray moved to Sweden in 2000 to a small red wooden house close to the forest and the wild beasts. The love of winter, the Swedish fiddle tunes and the love of a woman took him there. ‘There is a melancholy to the music—it’s the blues of the north. It is home.’

Karen Pfeiffer & Paul Walker

/ Jake Wilson



Book now

This Anglo-German duo are already firm favourites at the club, combining  their original material with a fine choice of folk favourites.

Jake is a folk-rock guitarist and songwriter in the Richard Thompson mould although he trained as a classical violinist and piano player and went to India to study the sitar. Subsequently he was to focus his attention upon the guitar. He played with Dave Swarbrick as a duo over the last years who described him as ‘one of the best guitarists and songwriters around today’ .

The Churchfitters Christmas Cracker

Plus Claire Boswell



Book now

A folk group like no other. A double bass made out of scrap metal. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stomping fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms. Their “Christmas Cracker” show is a mouth-watering selection of traditional and original festive season songs which will see Christmas in with a bang, a paper hat-full of surprises, novelties – and some terrible jokes too!

Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer


Plus Chris Irving



Book now

Vicki and Jonny will undoubtedly bring something special to their Christmas show. They effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary sounds. Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self-penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.
