Hi All,

Seeing as there appears to be so many folkies on here, I just wanted to let you all know about the folk club I help to run. It's based in the Fox and Hounds pub, Kent - near the villages of Eynsford and Shoreham, or for non-locals, about 10 minutes drive away from J3 of the M25.

It's been running for nearly 6 months, and we've had some great acts on including Fiddlefit, Danny Kyle, Pigs Ear, Tone Deaf Leopard, The Dealers, Missouri Gutts, Ian Petrie, Steve Simpson and Eddie Armer to name but a few (and apologies if I've missed anyone!). The club runs every Monday night, with open mic ever fortnight (although there are always a few floor spots on 'gig' nights too). For more info, check out www.myspace.com/foxandhoundsfolk

Hope to see you soon,

Chris

Hi Breezy - look forward to hearing you play!
Update - the next 'gig' night is 19th November, when we have Alun Davies (otherwise known as Cat Stevens' guitarist) and his daughter Becky playing for us. They're a wonderful duo, and also front the excellent group "Good men in the jungle".
Tonight and the 26th November will be open mic, and we have glorious acapella trio Cartouche coming to play (sing?!) for us on the 3rd December, so stay tuned, and remember: The Future's Bright, The Future's Foxy.

Sue - see above! I put Cartouche's gig on here on the 11th Nov, hadn't written that TDL were curating on the 10th Dec as I didn't know whether it had been confirmed - I take it that it is now! (Although I'm pretty sure that you guys ran our impromtu sing-around on monday, so many thanks for that too).

I'm sure that 3 posts in 5 days counts as more than 'occasional' updates :-P

All the best

Here are directions from Eynsford

Meanwhile this is the way we go. Coming from Orpington via Eynsford. Go across the ford(there is a road bridge) turn left After 400 yards or so you will see some white houses and a war memorial (firs right Bower Lane). Go up this for 2.7 miles. You will pass walled house, (security lights etc). Turn right about 200 yards past this.Sign in Hedge says Fox and Hounds. Massive car park, down there (field).
Pub at end of lane.
Fox and Hounds has a thread, but little info on it.

Thanks for helping promote the thread Sue! Tone Deaf Leopard were one of the prize winners at the first Fox and Hounds Christmas Folk Awards - have a good Christmas, and look forward to seeing you in the new year if I don't see you before.

General announcement: First folk club back in january is on the 7th; All-female acappella trio "Her red shoes". They're a superb and very talented group - and I'm not just saying that because they're also lovely girls and very attractive! ;-) - so hope to see you there.

Merry Christmas!

Hi All,

Hope you all had a good Christmas and New years break, and that the return to work isn't getting you down too much. In case you need some live music to lift your spirits, here's what we've got coming up at the Fox and Hounds Folk club early this year:

On the 21st of January we have a double bill - the Kent Carters, who are an excellent Carter Family band-esque group, with Lake Marie - a much called for americana trio performing songs by the likes of Gillian Welch, John Prine and Emmylou Harris.

The following week we have an open mic - all are welcome!

For more information, or to find out who else we have playing in the near future (Including Canary Wolf, Foolproof, Pete Bruntnell and many more), check out the website at www.myspace.com/foxandhoundsfolk

Cheers!

Chris

Open mic this coming monday (17th), and then the excellent Jack McNeill and Charlie Heys the following monday (24th) - make sure to catch these guys as they're based up in birmingham/carlisle and don't venture down this way very often!

You can have a listen to them here: http://www.myspace.com/jackmcneillandcharlieheys

Take one or two (or formerly three) Skinny Rats, and add beer. The evening may well continue...

My spies say they were welcomed to the F&H "for the first time". My other spies tell me that they have probably played there literally hundreds of times since the early 70s. But it was the first time for this folk club.

What do you call a Skinny Rat in a suit? The accused! (it used to be one of their jokes)

Hi everyone,

By all accounts Roger and Pete's gig was another superb night, with some excellent floor spots (I'm afraid I missed it, as I managed to acquire tickets for Josh Ritter's london show at the last minute...yes, I am a shameless groupie...). In order to make amends, I will refrain from playing ANY josh ritter songs this monday. Honest.

This monday (7th April) we have the open mic night, so please feel free to come along and join in!

The following week (14th April) we have come full circle with the welcome return of Fiddlefit - an excellent guitar/fiddle duo, and the first act that we ever showcased at the fox and hounds folk club. People have been clamouring for us to book them again ever since their inaugural perfomance at the F+H, and, as always, we live to serve.

After the fiddlefit gig we have another open mic night on the 21st, and then Pete Bruntell joining us for a gig on the 28th. We're all massively excited about having Pete coming to play for us as he is a superb and highly regarded songwriter and performer. http://www.peterbruntnell.com

Have a good weekend, and hope to see you all on monday!

Hi everyone. Well, last night was an experience! Two minutes before we arrived a power cut happened. Undaunted, we had a candle-lit sing around. Quite a good attendance, and Chris kept his word - no Josh Ritter songs! ( but how do we know he hadn't said they were by someone else? ) He turned up with his keyboard, but thankfully, there is a rather good piano in the pub. The guests next week, by public demand are Fiddlefit, so we hope you all come along, and welcome new members too. Bring candles, just incase.

Hi Al - would be great to have you and your concertina along for a session!

The URL for the fox and hounds folk club is: www.myspace.com/foxandhoundsfolk

For some reason when you use the "make a link" function on this forum, it sticks "www.mudcat.org" before the URL, which results in a dead link! Never mind, you can copy and paste the above link into your browser and it should work fine.

(I continue to be disappointed by the anti-Josh Ritter prejudice that seems be displayed by certain regulars at the Fox and Hounds! ;-) )

Look forward to seeing you all tonight - and just a quick reminder that we have the amazing Pete Bruntell (http://www.myspace.com/peterbruntnell) playing a the F&H on the 28th April (i.e. next week). He really is a superb songwriter, so if you're free then come on down - and if you're not, then cancel your plans and come anyways!

It was good thanks - quite quiet as I think lots of the regulars had been at Rochester Sweeps all weekend, but some lovely stuff nonetheless. Fiddlefit came and played some great songs, and we had some new faces (Alex and Gerado) who sang and played, plus an array of contributions from the usual suspects - and a rousing sing/playalong to finish off the evening!

You did miss my housemate Andriy singing some russian songs while Fiddlefit played the tunes - a truly unexpected event! (and not in any way precipitated by the fact that he'd been drinking all day....)

This monday we have the innovate Violet Jive duo playing for us - a mixture of originals and old favourites with blues, latin and jazz influences played by guitarist/singer Steve Spall and double bassist Pete Shaw. They're a highly accomplished pair and have a really unique sound so are well worth seeing. All this plus floor spots should make for a very interesting and entertaining night!

See you then,

Chris
