Back by popular demand!

Si Barron’s first solo appearance at Bodmin Folk Club (in April 2016) instantly ranked him amongst our most memorable guest performers of recent years.

Demand for tickets is sure to be high, so book yours early!

“I have been singing and playing English traditional song Nationally for 15 years, first with the duo Barron Brady and now as a solo performer.

As a self-taught guitarist I try to keep the accompaniment out of the way of the words and melody, it’s the songs that matter.

I am a folk fanatic!

This is exciting, moving and relevant music, hallowed by time – the only kind of music that never gets old.

I celebrate that and hope I demonstrate my love for this powerful music every time I sing.” Si Barron.

“I think he’s a really, really fine guitarist and an even finer interpreter of traditional and contemporary folk songs.” Mike Harding.

Andy Clarke

We were really looking forward to welcoming Andy Clarke to the club on Friday 8th December.

Alas he has the lingering lurgy, and won’t be able to perform for us tonight.  We wish him well, and look forward to seeing him sometime in the future.

We’ll run the evening as an Open House instead, so bring yer voices, instruments and ears and join us up in Bodmin Band Club.

Sharron Kraus & Nancy Wallace

Friday 24th November 2017

Members £8.00 Non-members £9.50
Tickets in advance from CRBO

Sharron Kraus is a singer of folk songs, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose solo work and collaborations offer a dark and subversive take on traditional music.

As well as drawing on the folk traditions of England and Appalachia, her music is influenced by gothic literature, surrealism, myth and magick.

Her songs tell intricate tales of rootless souls, dark secrets and earthly joys, the lyrics plucked as sonorously as her acoustic guitar.

As well as her solo work, Sharron has recorded an album of traditional songs – ‘Leaves From Off The Tree’ – with Meg Baird and Helena Espvall of Espers, written an album of songs to celebrate the seasons of the year – ‘Right Wantonly A-Mumming’ – which was recorded with some of England’s finest traditional folk singers including Jon Boden, Fay Hield and Ian Giles – and also recorded and performed with the duos Rusalnaia and Tau Emerald (with Gillian Chadwick and Tara Burke, respectively).

Nancy Wallace is a singer and musician hailing from Suffolk and London,currently residing in Montreal, Canada.

She came to notice singing with the Memory Band and later as part of the cult alt-folk collective The Owl Service, but has in recent years been ploughing her own furrow.

A guitarist and concertina player, Nancy’s repertoire spans traditional material, her own compositions and the odd unexpected cover version.

Live, she creates an atmosphere and intimacy with her audience which is not to be missed.
