Presenting live acoustic music in Twickenham most Sundays, usually at Patchworks, The Cabbage Patch pub, at 8pm (doors open 7.45pm)

Coming up at TwickFolk:

1 May: Singaround: bring a song or two, join in, or just come and listen!

Tickets £3 on the door or £3 (+30p booking fee) if booked online

Sue_graves_completeSue Graves, one of the resident singers at TwickFolk, says: “All the music at TwickFolk is live and our singarounds give everyone a chance to sing, play an instrument, recite a poem or tell a story.

“If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.

“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old – and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”

Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.

8 May: JENNIFER CROOK DUO: Harp, banjo, guitar and beautiful songs + Camilla Larson

Tickets £10 on the door or £10 + £1 booking fee if booked online

In a career that has led her from the BBC Young Tradition Award to touring with Snow Patrol, Jennifer Crook has earned a reputation as an outstanding harp player as well as an acclaimed singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. She has appeared on national television, recorded the music for the BBC David Attenborough series ‘The Private Life of Plants’ and was recently invited to contribute to the BBC Radio 2 programme ‘Girl On Guitar’, about Joni Mitchell. Jennifer’s 2011 release ‘Merry-Go-Round’ featured contributions from Eddi Reader and Darrell Scott and was produced in Glasgow by Boo Hewerdine. The album earned her national airplay and a live session with the legendary Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

2014’s ‘Carnforth Station‘ is Jennifer’s third solo release and features her partner this evening – multi-instrumentalist Mike Cosgrave (Jackie Oates/Jackie Leven), along with regular cellist Beth Porter (Eliza Carthy/Newton Faulkner). Recorded by Leon Hunt and Stephen W Tayler, the album includes some concert favourites as well as brand new material inspired by their travels, and guest appearances from premier lap steel player Kevin Brown and singer/double bassist Miranda Sykes.
