The Travelling Folk


The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before. |

TTF 30th Anniversary - 17 October 2013


On Thursday 17 October 2013 TTF celebrated 30 glorious years of Song & Music with a get-together at one of our regular & best loved venues i.e. The Bush Blackbird & Thrush at East Peckham in Kent.

About 50 performers & supporters enjoyed a well cooked meal, excellent beer, some fine company and of course music & song to make it a memorable occasion.

Quite a few of those present have been regular attendees for most of the 30 years that we have been performing at pubs around West Kent and beyond; indeed back to the days of John Smedley, whose brainchild it was.

A plea was made for new blood to take TTF forward to ever greater things, but a positive respsonse is still awaited…
