Covid 19 virus update
We had intended to maintain a folk presence at the Sportsmans Arms but it has become clear that the majority of our regulars wish to respect the advice from Downing Street and refrain from social contact while this Coronavirus runs its course. It is with regret therefore that we have decided to suspend the Folk Club for the next few weeks.
Unfortunately we have decided to postpone Katie Kirk & Rick Williams until later this year.
Keep checking in to get the latest information. We will also update our Facebook page as things develop.
Other bookings that could be affected are
Ale & Cakes on Sunday 26th April 2020
Barron / Brady on Sunday 10th May 2020
and Nick Dow on Sunday 7th June 2020
Sunday 29th March 2020
Katie Kirk & Rick Williams
“Katie is one of the great ” undiscovered” talents of the UK folk and acoustic scene. With exceptionally sympathetic accompaniment from Rick she delivers riveting vocal performances. They deserve a much wider audience.” … GEOFF LAKEMAN
“Katie Kirk and Rick Williams are utterly captivating. Each thoughtfully reimagined ballad is like its own world, painted with exquisite vocals and guitar” … TEYR
“Katie Kirk’s warm, earthy voice comes with a personality and onstage presence to match, while master guitarist Rick Williams supplies an elegant underpinning.” … SARAH McQUAID
