Traditional Music and Song in Baston

Barn Concerts

It's September and the first concert of the 2017/18 season is with Phil Beer on the 28th.

Don't forget to bring your own drinks, bottle opener and some money for our raffle.

We are in talks with more leading folk artists and will be filling up the schedule for 10 great concerts in the 2017/18 season.


The concerts for September, October, November, December and January are all SOLD OUT.

If you have not got a place, make sure that Maggie or Alan has your name and telephone number. You may get contacted (even as late as the day of the concert) and offered a ticket.

We regularly eat into the waiting list during the days leading up to a session so let us know your contact details and we may be able to offer you a seat or two, when we get closer to the day.

Traditional Song Competition

Our annual song competition was held at The White Horse in Baston on Monday, 6th November with 14 entrants, The winner was Bob Fisher who sang ‘The Ford of the Ise’.

Following the competition we had one of our Big Sings.

Have you read Toby's reviews?

Whenever he can get to the Barn, Toby Wood (no relation to Alan or Maggie) takes photos of the artists at the Barn and writes a personal, often amusing account of the evening.

Dance - This winter.

Over the next few months there are a number of public dances - see the Dance Pages for the list of dates of dances in Spalding, Little Bytham, Edenham, Whittlesey and Elsea Park Bourne.

You must be near to one of them so go and have a fun filled evening with the Maggie, Alan and the rest of the Fruit Cake Band

Melodeon Hire

Do you fancy joining in the music making?  The Club has purchased a Hohner 2 Row Melodeon (keys D/G) for short term hire for people to try out. We would really like to be able to give some one a start in playing for fun at one of our music and song sessions at the pub. Talk to Alan if you want to give it a try.
Go to the Melodeon Hire for details.
