31/03/17 Ranagri Members £8 / Non-members £9
  No longer newcomers to the Woodman, they delighted us one Friday night a couple of years ago, Ranagri are four musicians from London with diverse musical backgrounds but a shared passion for folk music. They are Donal on vocals and guitar, Eliza on whistles/flutes, Jean on electric harp and Tad on bouzouki and bodhran. To quote Les, (our esteemed reviewer from the last time they appeared) “Ranagri are quite possibly one of the best bands we have seen this year. Their music is in the main self penned and lyrically has a folk feel to it, but the sound they produce is a mixture of music and rhythms from everywhere in the world. It is so very hard to find a genre to fit them into.” Unmissable!

07/04/17 Flossie Malavialle Members £7 / Non-members £8
  April 2014 was the last time we were entertained by everyone’s favourite French Geordie, Flossie Malavialle, yes three years ago if you can believe it! Flossie has now been living on these shores for many years and although she started her British life as a teacher she is now a full time singer and a delightful one at that. Expect standards, bluesy numbers, French songs….oh and just about anything in between, all accompanied by her sensitive playing on her beloved Gibson. Should be a night to remember……so don’t forget to be there.

28/4/17 Bob Fox Members £8 / Non-members £9
  It’s now almost two years since Bob graced the stage at the Woodman so I’m sure you’ll agree it’s high time we welcomed him back! Bob is from the north east of England and his songs reflect the culture and humour of his homeland and he accompanies them all with stunning guitar playing which he makes look simply effortless. He has been performing and touring now for nigh on 40 years as a solo artiste and, from time-to-time, in various duos and bands, so you’d expect him to be quite good……….but that’s an understatement, he’s superb!

05/05/17 Union Jill Members £7 / Non-members £8
  4 years!! Can you believe it….it’s been four years since Helen Turner and Sharon Winfield, better known to us as Union Jill, were last on at the club. If you were there you’ll remember it as a super night of well-crafted, self penned songs superbly complemented by fine musicianship and haunting harmonies from the two Yorkshire lasses. We said at the time that they’d be back….well OK it’s taken a while but here they are, ready to sing their hearts out for you lucky Woodman folkers. Great stuff!

12/05/17 Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer Members £6 / Non-Members £7
Although Paul and Karen have been to the club previously and we’ve had the chance to see them in action briefly, this will be their first fully-fledged appearance as club guests. For the benefit of those of you who’ve not seen them before, Paul & Karen both have their individual styles which combine beautifully and, together with their light-hearted banter, they provide a truly memorable experience. Karen adds alto-recorder, tin whistle and percussive instruments to Paul’s skilful guitar playing. This is their 5th year of performance together and in their luggage they will proudly bring along their second album ‘Marble Town’.

26/05/17 Risky Business Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Excellent news that Risky Business are touring as a three piece band again and even better that we’ve got them to delight us at the club! We had an excellent night with two thirds of RB - namely Ken & Ruth Powell - about eighteen months ago but now that they have reformed as a three piece with Dave Walmisley (known to us through Other Roads), we should be in for a real treat. Wonderful vocalists, superb musicians…..what’s not to like?

30/06/17 Gerry Colvin Band Members £10 / Non-members £11
  Gerry and the band played a storming show at the club in April of last year and we are thrilled and delighted to welcome them back. A ‘slightly eccentric’ performer I think it would be fair to say, who writes all of the band’s material and performs it with real feeling. His songs are often quirky, sometimes very funny, always very skilfully written and presented in many varied ways, from rousing, full-band accompaniment to solo voice with just a double bass which makes your hair stand on end! You’ll need to be early for this one – we’ll be full!

07/07/17 Keith & Tim Judson Members £6 / Non-members £7
The Judson’s, both father and son, as both solo artistes and together, have been delighting the Woodman audience for quite a long time now and it’s always a pleasure to welcome them back to the club, as friends as well as club guests
.
Both Tim and Keith are accomplished singers, songwriters and musicians and I suspect that most, if not all that we hear tonight will be self-penned.
No doubt Tim will regale us with tales of his travels far and wide which have greatly influenced his music, whilst Keith’s influences tend to be more locally based and sometimes influenced by his faith. Welcome back, both of you.

21/07/17 Bev Pegg Band Members £6 / Non-members £7
  For the last few years Bev and the band have closed our programme for the summer break and this year will be no exception. If you haven’t seen Bev before you will be in for a treat. He’s a very talented singer, excellent guitarist and always manages to surround himself with a superb bunch of musicians. A local bloke (Cradley), his performance will include original folk style numbers as well as little ventures into bluegrass, skiffle and jazz- and as a bonus - he is extremely funny!
