27/05/22 Gary Edward Jones Members £6 / Non-members £7
  As regular visitors to the club will know, Gary is a singer-songwriter from Liverpool, with a voice so reminiscent of Paul Simon that he regularly takes out a tour entitled “Something About Simon” in homage to his muse. His debut CD, ‘The Cabinet Maker’ was released some while ago to great acclaim. Many of you will remember from his previous visits that Gary has penned some beautiful songs so the night will be filled with his own stuff plus, maybe the occasional cover. Gary plays guitar and this will be his first visit to the club as a solo artist having been joined by other members on his three previous ones, so something a little different tonight and I can promise you it’ll be worth waiting for.

03/06/22 Craig Sunderland Members £4 / Non-members £5
  Craig is another new name to the club and is a wonderfully talented singer and fingerstyle guitarist from Coventry who is regularly seen around the folk clubs of Warwickshire and beyond. He began playing at the age of 8 and had the good fortune to be tutored by local legend Dave Bennett. After a brief foray into playing guitar in a few local metal bands he has returned to his roots on the folk scene and has become an established act at the famous Wurzel Bush Folk Club, currently in Rugby. Craig has been described as "good" by none other than Gordon Giltrap…..high praise indeed!

10/6/22 Landermason Members £6 / Non-members £7
  Tonight we have the very welcome, long awaited return of Landermason to the club for their third visit. Landermason are vocal and multi-instrumentalist Fiona Lander and Paul Mason on vocals and guitar. They have developed a unique sound which displays a high degree of virtuosity and with which they combine both traditional and contemporary folk with jazz and other musical styles. They have released an impressive array of CD’s, most of which will doubtlessly be on sale, and have appeared on BBC radios 2, 3 and 4. Now getting increasingly known on the folk and festival circuit, and last with us back in July 2018 - before the world went mad, one way and another, so a night not to be missed I reckon!

  Unfortunately this performance has been postponed until later in the year.
Please check back for further details which will be posted when they are available.

01/07/22 Johnny Coppin Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Over the years Johnny has been a regular visitor to the Woodman but as far as I can see he was last with us way back in 2011 so this visit is long overdue I’m sure you’ll agree. He is a longstanding favourite at our club as well as many other clubs and festivals nationwide and his music is essentially English in character with a particular Gloucestershire bias. Add to this his clear voice and his ability to write fine songs and you will most certainly get an evening to remember.

08/07/22 CLUB CLOSED (Bromsgrove Folk Festival)

15/07/22 Ranagri Members £8 / Non-members £9
  Making their fourth visit to the club tonight we have this wonderful quartet from London, with the unusual name (pronounced; Ra – na – gry [as in sky]) if I remember rightly from their last appearance in November of 2018. They have diverse musical backgrounds but a shared passion for folk music and are Donal on lead vocals and guitar, Eliza on whistles/flutes/vocals, there will be a substitute harpist as Ellie is on maternity leave from the band and there will be someone on percussion, as yet not known who! To quote Les, (our esteemed reviewer from the first 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.” Sounds good to me!
