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.

Visit from Lord Conyers Morris

Lord Conyers Morris Men formed in 1974, at this very club. They remain good friends of the club and we look forward to this regular May visit.

“The idea to form a side of Morris Dancers from members of the Kiveton Park Folk Club, which then met at the Lord Conyers Arms in Wales, was conceived at a ceremony to plant an oak tree in the Bluebell Wood beside the road from Kiveton Park to Todwick as a replacement for Robin Hood’s “Trysting Tree” in the spring of 1974. Thenceforth, both the oak tree and Lord Conyers Morris Men have continued to thrive”. - From the Lord Conyers history page on their website.

Tom Lewis

Our friends Pete & Ken have been singing together for fifty years and run the highly successful and respected Beehive Folk Club at Harthill. Geoff sang with Bone Lazy and for years prior to that with the Cartwheel Folk Group who still perform together occasionally - you will have seen them at Kiveton.

Together the three provide solo and three-part harmony singing along with beautiful and accomplished guitar accompaniment.
