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 9th June 09

An excellent night featuring a guest appearance from the fantastic Mitch Hiller, playing first on his own then with Simon accompanying on guitar. Duos were a bit of a theme of the night, with Trevor and John, Steve and Alan, and the Moldy Moldy Men. Richard made his first appearance at the club, and provided excellent fiddle accompaniment to a few performers, and joined Neil, Jerry and Caroline in tackling The World Turned Upside Down.
