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.

Tuesdays 6th & 13th of May

A couple of enjoyable sessions, with some new performers and the return of a few people we've not seen for a while. This week we ran out of time for all the performers who turned up - a reminder to get there early to guarantee your slot! Great to see: the Moldy Moldy men again; Eamonn's return; Ben's Bee Gees and Prince covers; some mandolins, an electric ukulele, a mandocello, George's twin-necked guitar/mandolin; the fantastic Roger; Laine Hines all the way from Swiss Cottage; and...a lot more (if the Oak's beer wasn't so good I might remember a bit more the following day).

Yes, young Laine was super. Pity there's not much on his myspace. Looking forward to Tuesday!

When are you going to play that guitar in your picture, Mick? I think it's time you gave us a tueday night performance.

That guitar was borrowed off the girl sitting next to me. Just to pose for the shot!
