Forest Folk
 - a great folk club in Hampshire



What's on:           

Monday 19 November 2018, 8 pm - Martyn Joseph - SOLD OUT




Martyn Joseph is a powerful singer and songwriter gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics. With a career spanning 30 years, the versatility of his music touches genres of folk, rock, soul, folk-funk and Americana, yet somehow all these labels cannot define the spirit of his music.  Martyn has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerising live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives. He’s a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called “The Welsh 
Springsteen”. (www.martynjoseph.net)



Monday 10 December 2018, 7.30 pm - The Forest Folk Christmas Ceilidh 

withThreepenny Bit



Hampshire based Threepenny Bit are an example of how traditional dance tunes and contemporary sounds can be blended into a fresh interpretation of folk music.  This dynamic band play bold arrangements of traditional and original tunes with infectious stage energy for ceilidh dancing.

Join us for our Christmas party night - what better way to start the festive season!






Monday 17 December 2018, 8 pm - A Causley Christmas




Join Jim Causley in celebrating the Christmas season as he entertains you with lesser known West Country carols, medieval and secular carols from around the British Isles, his own settings of moving Christmas poems by his relative, the late Cornish poet Charles Causley as well a gurt dollop of festive fun with songs of over-indulgence and even a spot of panto too! If you are feeling a little dismayed with the over-commercialisation of “Christmas present” then join Jim for a journey through Christmas past that will be guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit!
