Some of our relatives
Our very own, now becoming known further afield too.
Rose Lane Ceilidhs
Regular "no frills" ceilidhs at St Mary's church hall in Pinchbeck with The Beltonas, Sue Gray and Slapdash dancers. Astonishlngly cheap and far from nasty.
Angela King and Paul Dickinson
Everything you could wish to know about the people who sing to goats.
She's a fantastic singer and bass player who is Spalding born and bred.
English, Scottish and home-made tunes, great for ceilidhs or just to listen to
The artistes formerly known as Akmed's Camel. And then weren't. And now are again. Another terrific ceilidh band with many years experience
Between the Lines
Neither late nor naked any more, this great song band comprises Mark Addison, John Blanks, Dave Tucker and Spalding's guitar maestro and songwriter Phil Biggs. Contact them via Akmed's Camel.
The South Lincolnshire Appalachian Dance Show. Meets for practice on most Tuesday evenings at St Mary’s Church Hall, Pinchbeck.
Very professionally produced fortnightly newsletter and webpage listing a huge number of online gigs. A labour of love for ex resident of Spalding and Slapdash dancer, Lucy Shields.
The South Holland Centre
Our luxurious venue, an energetic arts centre who also promote folk music events in their own right.
BBC Radio Lincolnshire - deffo not flavour of the month since they decided to sack Tom Lane from his job as co-presenter of the weekly folk show. And they've withdrawn their sponsorship of the annual Song for Lincolnshire competition. More about all this on the News page. If you're looking for a folk music programme to listen to on Sunday evening, our recommendation would be to try Kerry Devine on BBC Radio Cambs.
The Barn at Baston
Another local venue presenting top-class folk and traditional music. Conveniently, they usually meet on the fourth Thursday so there's no clash of dates.
Southwell Folk Festival
Started in 2007 and now established as our region's main festival event.
Tom and Ali Beaumont’s listings, information and magazine site. Everything musical that’s worth knowing about in Lincolnshire and beyond.
Peterborough Folk Diary
Folk music listings for north Cambridgeshire, south Lincs, west Norfolk and east Northants
Going away? Folk Map will tell you exactly where to sample the local folk music. And we're on it too.
UK Folk Festivals
Just what it says on the tin - could be time to book up your holidays
Bright Young Folk
Fed up with grey beards? This site is strictly clean-shaven.
Now definitely nailed to the perch after their final gig on 15th October 2011. The site is still there, for future historians to discover.
