concertina ceol Sessions Song and Tune (Mid/South Kent) (10) Sessions Song and Tune (Mid/South Kent) 16 Apr 07

Hello Friends,

I feel in an odd position being on the border of kent and sussex and looking for a good folk session or sessions. I would prefer predominantly english songs with a smattering of english/irish/scots/welsh/breton tunes etc (but definietly not blues, nor old time nor eva cassidy wannabies).

I know of a good session at the Stag in Hastings and I have had many good evenings at the Lewes Arms Folk club and at the Trevor Arms at Glynde. But whenever I try to find anything in Kent to suit I draw a blank. And unfortunately these venues are too far away for regular trips.

"Travelling Folk" is good but not often in my "area" being too far west, eight bells at tenterden not really my cup of tea (no offence intended.)

Does anyone know of anything happening regularly south of Maidstone and on a line west as far as tonbridge and east as far as woodchurch.
I'm sorry to sound boring but traveling to north kent has little appeal after a days work. I'm not from round these parts but anything north of maidstone is north kent to me!

If there really is nothing regular in this area I might even try to set something up. Are there any others who would want to come to a regular session in this area say marden / staplehurst / cranbrook / goudhurst / hawkhurst?
