London’s funnest ceilidh night Folk Of The Wood returns with a bang! This month we’re welcoming a very special duo who are flying over from Tennessee! We’ve also got clog dance fun with Old Palace Clog and of course hosts Ceilidh Tree with caller to show the moves! Full details below and at www.folkofthewood.co.uk
Acclaimed country music duo Nora Jane Struthers and multi-instrumentalist Joe Overton are from Nashville, Tennessee and will be making a rare UK appearance at our ceilidh! Expect a classic mix of clawhammer banjo and sweet Gram / Emmylou inspired harmonies.

This month we’ve also got the wonderful clog morris group Old Palace Clog who are sure to delight with their stunning costumes and fine formations – their charming take on the northwest clog morris tradition should offer the perfect antidote to the ceilidh!
Hosts Ceilidh Tree, fresh from gigs at the BBC Proms and National Maritime Museum will be providing 3 rip roaring sets of dance music with melodeon, fiddle and caller to show you the moves – expect a euphorically modern twist on all your favourite dances!
There’ll also be a full bar with scrumpy, local ale and wine plus hot food by Beamish & McGlue.
Tickets are £9 adult, £7 concession and more on the night (if available). Sign up to our mailing list at www.folkofthewood.co.uk for a discount ticket link
