We meet....

......normally on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 8:00pm in the Stable Bar of the Drax Arms, Bere Regis BH20 7HH.

Admission is mostly free and the food at the Drax is excellent if you want to eat before we start.  Our goals are

  • to give musicians the opportunity to perform in front of an appreciative audience in a relaxed atmosphere, and 
  • to provide a wide variety of music from many genres to the audience.

"The chocolate box of folk roots music, great variety and all enjoyable." Kathy Dunn - Wessex Acoustic

"That was a magical evening last night (referring to the Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves concert). One of the most enjoyable concerts I have ever been to. I’ll remember the evening for a long time to come."  Jon Rowson - fiddle player

Robin Greenwood

Recently better known as a luthier, Robin has decided to revisit the folk scene, dust off his vocal chords and bring one of his finely made guitars to The Drax Folk Night to entertain us.  He will be accompanied on some of his numbers by the scratch house band Nick guitar, Charlie banjo and Pip bass.

Robin appears to be a bit camera shy as I can't find a photo of him so instead here is one of his guitars.
