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 14th April: BRUISE + 1st Birthday!

Good news: Bruise have agreed to open proceedings at our first birthday this tuesday. We're looking forward to seeing lots of old faces and regulars, and hopefully some new performers. Come along and help us celebrate a year of folk, almost-folk, and not-even-nearly-folk music at the British Oak.

Rather belatedly I'd like to say what a great evening it was, and how much I've enjoyed the last year. I'm not sure I would have taken the plunge to sing in public were it not for the great supportive atmosphere at the Oak on a tuesday.
