Tim Jones, guitar & vocals, combines with Ted Kemp concertina and Karen Phillips fiddle to perform a mix of traditional and original material. Described as “a must-see band at this summer’s festivals”, come and see them at Tonbridge. Tim Jones & The Dark Lanterns
Noted for her crystal clear expressive voice, with or without sensitive guitar accompaniment, she sings songs from the tradition and contemporary sources. Making a welcome return visit to the club. Miriam Erasmus
Another local performer, Allan is noted for his self penned songs, many of them topical and witty, and mostly accompanied by guitar. The subjects of his songs are wide ranging, and highly entertaining. Allan Richardson
A classic old fashioned country dance band, noted for their highly dance-able tune playing, but they are also singers of some repute. Expect an eclectic mix of songs and tunes, both humorous and serious, with plenty of opportunity for audience participation. The Tonic
