Our next Folk Night of 2019 features Dom Prag, Andrew James plus Bob Whitley with Lee Cuff

at The Stable Bar, The Drax Arms, Bere Regis BH20 7HH

All Welcome. No entrance Fee.

Dom Prag

Dom's music knits together British and European folk tradition, classical guitar: mining songs, poems set to music (Keats, Larkin), compositions influenced by Schubert and Shostakovich, bluesy riffs and raw vocals. 


Dom Prag

Andrew James

Andrew James is an accomplished Folk singer, musician and ceilidh caller. The Blarney Roses are his ceilidh band. But he will be treating us to some solo material played chiefly on Bazouki with vocals.

Bob Whitley and Lee Cuff

Bob is a Poole-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and composer who has been delighting audiences across the Dorset folk scene for over 20 years. Playing a wide range of instruments, including guitar, bouzouki and mandola, he writes songs inspired by history, politics and the events of his own life.

Lee plays the cello and sings folk songs. Usually he does both at the same time. A former member of the folk trio Kadia as well as a session music.  He is fanatical about baroque music.

Bob and Lee have written a musical story telling of love divided by the greatest voyage of exploration by Magaelln's circumnavigation.


Bob and Lee

Future dates are: 16th April, 21st May, 18th June featuring Sunjay, 16th July, 17th September, 15th October, and 19th November.

We would like to thank Richard and Lesley Quayle for running the Drax Arms Folk Night since its beginnings in 2015. We've all thoroughly enjoyed listening to and meeting all the wonderful musicians.

Pip and Nick are at the helm from January 2019 onwards with assistance from Steve. We hope that you will all continue to support our Folk Nights here at The Drax Arms Bere Regis with the same enthusiasm and generosity that we've experienced in the past.

One thing to note is that from February 2019 the club will meet on the THIRD Tuesday of every month instead of the last one, in the Stable Bar from 8.00 pm onwards.
