Who’s on?

Most weeks are “Singers’ Nights” – with plenty of instrumental music as well – but we like to book guests too.

The club’s policy on booking Guests

This year, we're again looking to book a guest every five weeks or so. We've always been a strong singers’ club and the folk who attend like to participate. That's the essence of Kiveton Park. It will not become a 'concert' club where folk sit mute and open-gobbed at the feet of their particular idols. We also intend to keep admission charges as low as possible. That can't be done if we book the latest divas and folk icons. Their fees would be prohibitive and you'd have to re-mortgage the house to pay entrance! We will continue booking guests who provide value for a reasonable fee, engage well with the audience, and do the kind of stuff that folk can relate to and join in with.

Graeme Knights

Graeme’s involvement with folk music goes back over 20 years. He was director of the Doncaster Folk Festival for several years and has been involved in the running of several clubs. Graeme enjoyed a high profile with the Group “Landlocked” for 6 years although his repertoire is not restricted to just Shanties, it encompasses Traditional Love Songs, Mining Songs, Gospels, Drinking and Music Hall Songs and some more recently written contemporary songs – many with good enjoyable and singable choruses. His rich baritone voice draws you to join in the singing and his delivery and presence make for a most memorable evening.

"If you want a whole room full of landlubbers bellowing out the choruses to a wide selection of shanties and other eminently singable songs, then Graeme's your man......" – Eric Bogle

Jeff Warner

Nick Dow is an all round professional folk singer and folklorist, singing and researching English and Irish traditional songs, taught and encouraged by traditional singers from Dorset and Lancashire as well as singers from the travelling people. A superb guitarist with a rich voice, Nick has a fascinating story to tell about each of his songs. He is fast becoming a regular guest at Kiveton!

Jeff Warner is among the American nation’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountain tops of America connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives – and artistry – of 19th century Americans. His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past.
