Guest nights 2022
South Holland Centre
First Wednesday every month
Wednesday January 5th and Wednesday Feb 2nd
We apologise that these evenings had to be cancelled due a combination of Covid and other factors. We're looking forward to seeing Between the Lines and Andy Wall in the future.
Wednesday March 2nd
Over the Moon
Award-winning vocal and instrumental duo from Alberta. There seems to be a limitless supply of old time/folk/country bands coming from Canada and here's another fantastic example. Don't miss!
Wednesday April 6th
The John Ward Trio
Their previous booking here was an early victim of Covid so we're very much looking forward to seeing them at last. Many of John's own songs reflect his attachment to his home town of Lowestoft and his connection with the sea.
Wednesday May 4th
Andy is someone we've wanted to book at the club for some time. Though he's based not far away in Ely, he's played all over the world and is a regular on the festival scene. A neat guitarist and warm singer with a very wide-ranging repertoire.
Wednesday June 1st
A favourite guest from Canada. He was due to play here two years ago and the gig had to cancelled at very short notice because of the first lockdown. We're very pleased to welcome him back again.
Wednesday July 6th
Between the Lines
These local heroes have gone to another level since the addition of guitar and mandolin maestro Dave Tucker who provides the perfect counterfoil to the dynamic vocals of Phil Biggs and John Blanks. With three songwriters in the band and a huge repertoire of Americana as well, the band offers so much to enjoy.
"A fabulous fusion of blues, rock, folk and Americana" says one reviewer. A very entertaining evening in store, with something for everyone. And Sarah Kelly, their bassist, is a former winner of the Musicians Union instrumentalist trophy - wow!
"A dazzling combination of voice and songwriting talent" says Celtic Music Radio. Another performer whose previous gig here had to be cancelled, and who we're very pleased to welcome at last.
Past winner of the FATEA Female Artist of the Year award, Odette Michell is a rising star whose talent has been recognised by many other musicians, notably Phil Beer of Show of Hands who invited her to guest on his solo tour.
Wednesday November 2nd
Christina Alden and Alex Patterson
Without Noel Dashwood on this occasion, but the same delicately beautiful singing and exquisite instrumentation as we saw the last time they played here.
Wednesday December 7th
Chris Parkinson and Alistair Russell
Ex members of the House Band and the Battlefield Band respectively, two top class musicians with nothing to prove, just enjoying themselves
