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. |

Sussex Song & Ale - 2-4 July 2010


Yet another successful weekend in the Sussex countryside again favoured with good weather. The village hall was again decked out handsomely with flags and fauna and provided a perfect backdrop to the singing sessions held from Friday evening 'till Sunday lunchtime.

Lubrication in the shape of Harveys ale was administered by Ian and Bins to ensure that no throat went dry! The evening sessions were followed by comic songs performed whilst balancing precariously on a log and carried on well into the early hours.

Elizabeth led the more energetic on the usual Saturday morning ramble and made it back in time to join the lunchtime singing session hosted by Lynne.

Each year a grand charity raffle is held, usually spearheaded by Hils which this year benefitted the British Heart Foundation in memory of Jan Wilson who died very sadly on 27 February and had been a loyal TTF contributor, usually running the closing lunchtime session.
