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.
Having grown up attending folk clubs and ceilidhs from a young age, Eddy rebelled and started a punk band. He rediscovered folk after watching a Christy Moore concert and never looked back. A short while later, a Peter Bellamy cassette dragged him right back into the English trad scene of his youth, and most recently, the music of Townes Van Zandt and Bruce Molsky have had major influences on his style and repertoire. Eddy accompanies himself on Guitar, Banjo and Concertina, singing an ever-evolving set of songs from the traditions of England, Ireland, Scotland, America, and even Australia.
