Internationally renowned blues ragtime and jazz guitar vituoso Woody Mann comes to the Old School House Venue Barnsley on 17th June. For just £8 you really can see a genuinely world class performer. In Sheffield they are paying £13 plus. God knows what they pay in London. Also if you havent been to a cabaret style performance at the Old School House Venue you have truly missed something its a complete gem with the best soundman and sound system around. Dont miss this one, space is limited

<sarah speaking> what Dave doesn’t mention above is also that Woody was a student of the Rev Gary Davies and that support Icabod is amazing and very fitting for the evening.  You really don’t want to miss this (epecially as it is also someone’s birthday and you might want to buy them a pint) xx

Billy Kemp Trades 8th Nov

Our guest at Barnsley Folk Club on Wednesday 8th November at the Trades Racecommon Road Barnsley is our old friend Billy Kemp who is now doing his first solo tour of the UK.

From the Land of Pleasant Living, Baltimore native Billy Kemp is a musician, songwriter, singer, composer and producer. He is a multi-instrumentalist but is best known for his tasteful and inventive guitar playing.

From 2005 through 2016 Billy was half of the Appalachian Folk duo Jeni and Billy, who toured extensively in the US, Canada and the U.K. and released seven CDs and were regular and highly popular guests at Barnsley Folk Club for the last seven years.

Billy has released a new solo CD this summer. His concert will include songs from his new CD, as well as audience favourites from the Jeni & Billy repertoire and selections from a rich and extensive back-catalogue.
