I’m very sorry to announce the sad death of Pam Colls:  Pam and her husband Alan took Dartford folk club to its award-winning status, and they and their team have put on top class bluegrass and old-time acts over the years (see listing below to see how this continues into 2016).  Alan and Pam have been a steady rock in the changing folk music scene; they always encouraged its growth, for example by announcing other gigs at the weekly club night – a great boon before the days of the internet.  For me personally they have been great friends, and constant helpers at my events at St Julians;  Pam is enormously missed, and will always be remembered for herself, and the superb club at Dartford stands as a great memorial to her.
If you’d like to go to Pam’s funeral, please contact Marj Mitchell (hawleymkm@aol.com / 01322 277218 or 07521 412699), to help her to gauge numbers.  Details are:
Wednesday 6th January at 1.15 p.m. in the North Chapel, at Eltham Crematorium.
The wake will be held afterwards at the Dartford Working Men’s Club, Essex Road, Dartford.
Alan has requested family flowers only, with donations to the Ellenor Hospice, either via the Coop Funeralcare in Dartford or direct to the charity.

Message from Ben Paley:   sadly, the weekly old-time session at the Admiral in Brighton has ceased.  Ben is looking for a new venue – I’ll be very glad to pass on ideas to him.

Message from Tony Watson:  “my Fender Dreadnought guitar is ‘up for grabs’ to the first  person to slip £65 in my grubby hands.  It is slightly battered, but powerful volume-wise and tonally none too bad. Stays in tune for ever and was set up by Adrian Farmer from new. That model was around £265, at the time of purchase, around 7 or 8 years ago.”
Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll pass on messages to Tony
===============================
Message from Janie Rothfield & Nathan Bontrage, who are touring this March and have a few dates still available:
NathanJane has almost limitless combinations of Fiddle, Clawhammer banjo, guitar (we both play these) and Cello (Nathan) and we both sing so our concerts have a lot to offer audiences who are into American Old Time Roots Music as well as those who are not! While our music is very rooted in the tradition of American Old Time we also play contemporary compositions (mainly written by me) and add in our own exploratory, improvisational spin to bring it into the 21st century and beyond! Great fun and highly entertaining.  With the addition of the amazing Harmonica playing Brendan Power, the creative sparks will be flying! The audience wont know what hit them! We also would love to do some teaching workshops and can host jams too.

==================================
St Julians Club, Sevenoaks:
Our annual ‘banish the post-Christmas blues’ concert at St Julians Club, Sevenoaks, will be on Friday January 1st, with the theme ‘Bluegrass meets Jazz’.  Bill Monore himself was influenced by the jazz he heard as a young man in Detroit, and old-time music and jazz share blues and rag-time as common roots.  Over the years many bluegrass players have borrowed jazz ideas, and a few musicians, like Hank Garland, have had feet in both jazz and country music camps, as well as the western swing scene.  Bring your songs/tunes and give us your opinion.  Introduced by Gill and Rick (of the Kent Carters) with some of those early blues/ragtime numbers, and guest spots by real jazzers Musaic, who include Peter Jennings on guitar*, and the Biggin Hillbillies, who have always included some jazz and jazz-influenced numbers in their repertoire.   8pm – free entry, with a collection for the Stroke Association, in memory of Nick Sands who died recently.
* Musaic usually also include singer Jane Richards, who also works with the Kent Carters and Magnolia sky, though sadly it looks unlikely she’ll be able to be with us on 1st January.
=================================
