Nick Dow has been a professional musician since the mid seventies and has many LP's to his credit. His career began in South London where he was a regular at The Bird in Hand folk song club, in Forest Hill. Nick is an all round professional Folk Singer and Folklorist whom I have seen on several occasions, most recently at the Warwick Folk Festival in 2019 and again at Tenterden!  I have always thoroughly enjoyed what he does and the way he introduces and presents his songs.  Not only is he a great performer but he is also a great craftsman whose work building and repairing Gypsy Caravans is greatly admired.  As a consequence he is a fascinating man with whom to talk when time permits.
Nick doesn't have a website so I have used the hyperlink on his name above the picture to link to him on the Folk and Honey website.  You can also find him singing "Through Bushes and Through Briars" on You Tube, you will find lots of other songs by Nick on there and also some of his Gypsy Caravan activities and an interview with him on Radio Lancashire about the caravan he refurbished as a present from Ronnie Wood's wife for her husband. Nick is no stranger to the club!

THIS COULD CHANGE TO A DATE IN SEPTEMBER IF LOCK DOWN RULES CHANGE


Kent based singer and folk song writer, Helen North, is a regular at Faversham Folk Club and has performed at The Drum for us before when, in her words, she was delighted to stand in for Isla StClair!  She is gaining a growing reputation for her skilfully turned lyrics, strongly visual songs and beautiful true voice.  Her 1st CD, Shifting Sands, draws on her years of experience working with boats and sailing and its nautical theme has captured the attention of other recording artists and singers.  She has recently performed at Broadstairs Folk festival, Faversham Hop Festival, Sandwich Folk Festival, as well as  folk clubs from North London to Cornwall. Singing both traditional and self-penned songs her captivating performances have her  audience in gales of laughter at one moment, and in rapt attention the next.  She has been interviewed on BBC Radio Kent Folk and was also delighted to perform a couple of her own songs playing the main stage at Towersy Folk festival as winner of their open mic competition. This talented lady is well worth catching.
