Sue Graves & Hector Gilchrist
Sue Grave & Hector Gilchrist @ Orpington Folk Club, the Change of Horses 2016

On their last visit they made a huge impression.  Sue has a clear, expressive voice and has often been referred to as the ‘Surrey Nightingale’.  She has the knack of choosing songs that just ‘click’ with the audience, accompanying herself most tastefully with fingerstyle guitar.
Hector is one of Scotland’s finest singers, equally at home with a traditional ballad, contemporary songs (with his own guitar accompaniment) or jazz crooners.

Singers & Musicians Night
Loosly arranged evenings to enable anyone to perform.  So all you have to do is turn up early and get your name down to sing/perform.
