Practical Stuff

We are an open mic club meeting every Tuesday at the British Oak pub in Old Dover Road, Blackheath. We are more of an acoustic than a pure folk club. Recent sessions have included virtually every musical genre.

We have a 300 watt Yamaha PA system with 2 mics and 4 other inputs. If more inputs are needed a Behringer mixer can be made available with prior notice. The space is relatively limited and a four-piece band is probably the optimum.

We operate a first come-first served system. There are 10 minutes/2 song slots. It is best to arrive by 8pm to avoid disappointment and ask for Lynne. We only have one rule we ask performers to respect: our excellent host, Peter, prefers people not to publicise gigs in other pubs, which seems fair enough to us.

Tuesday 17th February 2009

A busy night at the club saw 14 different performers; a song in Gaelic; tributes to the late John Martyn; folk interpretations of Led Zeppelin, Yazoo and Green Day songs;a bit of Dylan, some excellent harmonica playing; self-penned songs from Ben and Jennifer (always great to see a new performer at the club). All in all, a great night at the Oak.
