when we welcome:    John Ward Trio     to Dartford Folk Club

Based in East Anglia, on the most easterly point of the British Isles, John Ward, is a renowned songwriter on the folk, roots and acoustic music scene.
He has achieved an excellent reputation as a writer of powerful, thought-provoking and witty songs that draw upon his life in a gritty port town,
his wider travels in the world, and often capture the spirit of the times.

Performing with wife Lynne, and band mate Les Woodley, the John Ward Trio delivers powerful 3-part harmonies with acoustic guitar, bodhran,
harmonica, double bass, mandolin, accordion and recorder to bring a fuller sound to John's excellent songs.

The Trio also draws on its wider repertoire of traditional and contemporary folk tunes and songs, many of them suited to communal singing.
The band's performances are authentic and heartfelt, engaging audiences with their choice of material, thoughtful arrangements, versatility and humour,
not to mention John's blistering bodhran solos, which all blend to delight and entertain folk audiences in intimate venues and bigger stages alike.



Doors Open at 7.15pm with the evening starting at 8pm.
NO RESERVED SEATING! Please do come early if you are planning to sit with a large group of friends.

PAM & ALAN COLLS

Founders of the Dartford Folk Club, Pam and Alan Colls ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
Sadly both Pam and Alan have passed away but, at our 50th Birthday celebrations in October 2023, the team, guests and audience raised a glass
to remember their friendship, achievements and amazing contributions to the music world.

The Dartford Folk Club is now managed by a small team of original members in memory of and as a legacy to Pam & Alan's love for music.
