Mondegreen Folk Club – 7.30pm (ish) to 10.30pm Sunday 26th May at Ryan’s Bar
Mondegreen Folk Club is a FREE ENTRY folk club in this Irish pub in the heart of Stoke Newington, Hackney, London. We have a mixture of pre-arranged artists and floor spots. We try and make sure everyone who comes has a chance to play so you are very welcome to just turn up on the night.
We are currently working out the line up for March and April folk clubs. Please email Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org and Nora at email@example.com if you would like one of the three ‘Pre-Arranged Artists’ spots.
Mondegreen Folk Club is quickly growing into one of the most successful folk clubs in London. Come on down for a real treat-of-a-night which will include some/all of the following: fabulous, rockin’, vibrant, lovely, lively, folk music in the excellent Ryan’s Bar.
More info coming soon…
‘With a repertoire that travels from haunting folk melodies through to swashbuckling sea shanties, from country riffs to balkan latino funk, Jipsy is all about diversity.
Garry Smith is that rare beast, a slide guitarist who plays a resophonic guitar but who avoids, mostly, the expected Blues repertoire preferring to concentrate on his own songs of reminiscence and middle aged lust, instrumentals and his own versions of songs by such artists as Tom Waits and Richard Thompson. O, and an Irish ballad or two may be produced.
Ewan D Rodgers
Ewan D Rodgers has been a resident musician at Mondegreen Folk Club since mid 2012. He is a genuinely rare talent – an outstanding, intricate guitarist with a powerful, rich and raw voice. His new album is a real treat. View details here.
Yorkshire-born Ewan D. Rodgers lists British folk and blues players such as Davy Graham, Bert Jansch and Nic Jones as his main musical influences, however a closer listen to his music reveals influences from as far away as the Appalachian Mountains, the sheep-stations of New South Wales and the Shtetls of old Eastern Europe.
From Ewan’s live performances you can expect stripped-down folk and blues, old-time banjo and the odd disgruntled sounding rag.
‘Although he quotes as many Americans as Brits as influences, it’s clear that Rodgers is an old school British folk singer, first, last and always.’ Maverick Magazine
“Ewan musically articulates the woes of the world in a way that makes audiences listen, understand and – most importantly – feel the meaning of the song. Truly beautiful.” Mondegreen Folk Club
Mondegreen Album Due For Release in 2013
Mondegreen folk club is hosted by a group of musicians, ‘Mondegreen (And Friends)’. We have been working on an album over the last 6 months and are very pleased to announce that it will be ready for release in the Spring of 2013. The album is a collaboration between musicians from a wide range of folk and acoustic genres and includes original songs, written and arranged by Mondegreen, and traditional Irish and Scottish tunes. We have been very lucky to have worked with some outstanding musicians (and a truly fantastic music producer) as part of the collaboration for this album. More details coming soon!
We would like to thank the Arts Council UK for their support in making this collaborative folk album happen.
