Floor Singers booked to perform on the night …


John B Smith

John’s photographic skills have made him a welcome sight at many a club and festival.

His poetic skills are what we seek from him in his guise as a performer, however, and he will not fail to entertain.

John has been on the folk scene for 40-odd years.  Hailing from Yorkshire, many of his songs are rooted there.

His passion for folk songs has resulted in a wide-ranging repertoire, always particularly well-presented.

Elaine, keyboard and accordion player in many an ensemble, has that rare talent that true musicians possess; the ability to empathise with those she performs with.  She is an important part of a number of folk-related bands in the area.


Fraser and Toots

Fraser (Guitar, Vocal, and StompBox) & Toots (Accordion) play foot-tapping, finger-snapping, cat-swinging, scat-singing, bunny hugging songs from the 2O’s, 30’s and 40’s (think Fats Waller, Louis Jordan & friends), together with a huge repertoire of their own songs, acoustic folk, and jazzy ragtime blues.
