    Come All Ye
    Friday 11th November 2022- 8.00pm
    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm
    COME ALL YE OPEN STAGE
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    It was wonderful to be back at the Guildford Institute for the first in-person Come All Ye Open Stage since 2020 - and what a joy to get back to great chorus singing.

    For those who couldn't make it here's a taste of what you missed: memories, in song and spoken word, of Paul Sartin and Raymond Briggs - both of whom sadly died recently - and of Les Barker who has retired due to ill health; seasonal songs and stories of Harvest, autumn and Trafalgar Day; compositions by Jim Boyes, Bill Staines, Tom Lewis, Nancy Kerr, Geoff Harris, Bob Roberts, Phil Davies (performed by the man himself…) etc. etc.

    A splendid time was had by all and an excellent taster of what we have in store back in the Institute's Assembly Room. Our next meeting will be on Friday 11th November.

    Admission £3.00 on the door (to cover the rent)

    Tickets and membership can be purchased online at WeGotTickets

  • Kate Green Band
    Friday 25th November 2022 - 8.00pm
    Doors open at 7.30pm - evening finishes at 10.30pm
    THE KATE GREEN BAND
    The Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford GU1 4LH

    Kate Green has been singing almost as long as she's been talking. She was born into a Strathclyde family with deep Irish roots and its own living tradition of song and music, though she didn't dip her toes into the folk scene until she moved to Sheffield in the early '80s. She spent three years touring Scotland and the North of England with Badger In The Bag, picking up the accolade of Singer Of The Year at the 1992 National Folk Festival.

    After the Badgers disbanded, Kate assembled a backing combo consisting of Patrick Walker (fiddle, viola, guitar and harmony voice) and Raymond Greenoaken (mandola, guitar. banjo, concertina and Indian harmonium) and developed a striking and eclectic repertoire embracing Celtic trad, American old-time and blues, and covers of Van Morrison and Nina Simone.

    Her 2007 release An Unkindness of Ravens attracted warm praise from all quarters, "A stunning disc which really shouldnÕt be ignored" was the verdict from fRoots, but a high-pressure frontline job in Mental Health and assorted other distractions have combined to keep her out of the studio until now. A Dark Carnival is her first CD release in a number of years. It consists of traditional songs from both sides of the Atlantic, a handful of outstanding songs by contemporary songwriters (Lal Waterson, Peter Bellamy and Memphis Minnie), and five compositions of her own. To her self-written material Kate brings many years of intimate acquaintance with the traditional muse and the best of modern songwriting. Kate comes highly recommended by Barbara Parry having recently reviewed the album.

    Admission £13.00 (member £12.00) - Tickets must be purchased in advance

    Come All Ye
    Recorded "live" December 2021
    Still available online
    MISTLETOE CAYOZ
    YouTube

    In 2019, after 20 years of promoting Maypoles To Mistletoe at the Electric Theatre, the folk club adapted the perennially popular show to fit into the Assembly Room at the Guildford Institute. The show was called Mistletoe Garland and in 2020 we adapted our adaptation to fit into Zoom. The show was streamed "live" a week before Christmas and a recording is still available here.

    On Friday 10th December 2021the cast of Mistletoe Garland were each invited to choose their two favourite songs from the show and were joined by most of our regular Come All Ye Open Zoom (CAYOZ) singers, performing seasonal songs of their choosing, to present Mistletoe CAYOZ. As in previous years we were delighted to be joined by the wonderful Martyn Wyndham-Read to bring you some Christmas cheer and perform some of the finest seasonal songs and tunes around interspersed with anecdotes and poems about traditional customs and folklore. All that plus a Mummers Play! A splendid time was had by all and you can enjoy it here.

    Every year show is performed in aid of the charity Maypoles To Mistletoe has supported for decades, St Catherine's Hospice in Crawley.

    The show is available on YouTube (click here for link).
