A listing of all concerts in the hall for this year and the first few months of 2019 can be found as a PDF file here. Please note that as at 1 October, two of the listed concerts have already sold out (Amy Wadge on 20 October; and John Tams on 8 December). To avoid disappointment, please book early for any concert as the venue capacity is only 100, so we often sell out.

Friday 23 November


Dave Pegg is best known as the longest-serving member of the pre-eminent folk rock band Fairport Convention and he’s been the bassist for a number of important folk and rock groups including Jethro Tull. As well as being a highly distinctive bass player, he’s also a multi-instrumentalist and record producer. He’s played on a huge number of albums for other performers including Ralph McTell, John Martyn, Nick Drake, Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson.

Anthony John Clarke (‘A J’) is an engaging, very humorous and gifted singer and composer who first became known for his songs about Ireland, especially ‘The Only Life Gloria Knows’. He has toured with Fairport Convention and has been a regular MC of their annual festival at Cropredy, which Dave Pegg has organised for many years.

Since meeting nearly two decades ago, the pair have been firm friends, and they have regularly toured as a duo, with one of the most engaging and funny musical evenings around. Expect great tunes, great songs, great gags and surprises galore. The guys strongly recommend you bring all your medication!
