Recent sound clips from the club are further down this page but firstly one from Arthur Wakefield, the club's founding father. This is one of his best known songs about Bollington, a village near Macclesfield which nestles between two hills. One is The Nab and the other is the Saddle of Kerridge and it is on this latter hill that White Nancy stands which you can see in the background photo on this web site.

We'll keep this at the top of the audio clips page but if you want to hear more of Arthur, then there's more at the bottom of this page.
PS If we have put anyones sound clip on this page and they wish it to be removed just let us know




Here are the audio clips from the Singers Night on 17/03/2017. OK it's Irish Night and who needs an excuse to air a few Irish songs? Even songs like Frank's charmingly titled 'Irish Ballad' and for those who think enough is enough then Tim and Ann have a song for that too. Plus we had a trio of Hudsons and Peter from the Isle of Man, over here to see a Merry Hell concert and gave us a taste of what those of us without tickets will be missing. But let's finish with Dorothy and a bit of Irish authenticity.

 Here are the audio clips from the Guest Night on 10/03/2017 with Broom Bezzums. Following the excellent varied mix of genres from the club regulars we had another brilliant guest night with the return of Broom Bezzums two lads who now live in Germany. Hence the teaching of at least two German words from them (see the 1st two tracks from them). There is so much to enjoy from them including stunning instrumentals on small Northumbrian Pipes and violin from Andrew and guitar and mandola accompaniments and gritty songs from Mark. They finish with a Jez Lowe song.

 Here are the audio clips from the Singers Night on 03/03/2017. Thanks to Pete for sound clips in my absence and here is what I missed. We start with solo Andy which I don't often hear, we have an old Arthur song from John, the return of Bollingtons very own Belles and finish with a couple of Ewan MacColls.

 ........and finally some more Arthur Wakefield. We have two more of his own songs of Cheshire followed by two songs that he often used to sing to finish the night, which seems appropriate for the end of the audio clips page.
