Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith are one of the most celebrated duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a powerful social conscience has brought them widespread critical acclaim.

"To be a great folk singer, you have to be a great storyteller, as Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are clearly aware. The duo are both fine singers and multi-instrumentalists." (The Guardian)

The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with stunning musical arrangements and vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.



Colin and Karen Cater
Also known for their the visual arts company, Hedingham Fair, Karen and Colin have been veteran performers at the club. As well as being one of the Folk world’s best artists and designers, Karen is a sweet singer, and plays banjo and spoons. Colin sings and plays concertina, but what is less well known is that he has written several folk songs, which many have assumed are traditional songs.
