Singers night's are a popular part of the club's program with all types of acoustic folk music and songs performed.  This is the chance for SOLO or GROUPS of singer musicians to
come and showcase their talent.


Fran McGillivray & Mike BurkePA Tonight

"Impeccable fiddle and guitar work and one of the best voices ever." Described as a very major addition to the British folk scene, Chris and Benedict have been playing together as a duo specialising mostly in English traditional material for around two years.

Vibrant original songs complemented by soulful, dynamic and powerful interpretations of blues, and British and American folk songs.

“Very impressive”
The Guardian

“Superb music”
Blues Matters Magazine

“ Fran’s controlled passion and Mike’s instinctive blues guitar heart”
Folk Roots

“ A gritty combination of acoustic blues, country, folk and Celtic influences”
Rock ‘n’ Reel Magazine

"McGillivray’s smoky down-home voice is complemented by Burke’s smooth guitar playing."
Acoustic Magazine
