when we welcome:     Spikedrivers     to Dartford Folk Club

(Please click on the artists' names to learn more about the acts.)

One of the most original, innovative and exciting bands around, their combination of gutsy slide guitar, rock-solid bass, infectious grooves and highly distinctive vocals,
creates a sound that is uniquely their own. They take you on a journey, from southern juke-joints and lazy front porches to the huge open spaces of dust bowls and railroad tracks
disappearing into the distance.....      Born in London but raised in the deep south of the United States, Ben's musical style reflects these experiences.
His guitar playing is an intoxicating blend, from the raw delta blues of Robert Johnson to the powerful soundscapes of Jimmy Page. This combined with a soulful voice
and commanding stage presence completes the picture of a very unique artist.

In 1992 Ben formed the Spikedrivers...

Ben Tyzack:   guitar, vocals & harmonica
Constance Redgrave:   bass guitar, vocals & percussion
Maurice McElroy:   drums, vocals & percussion

PAM & ALAN COLLS

It is over six years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and several years since her loving husband, Alan passed away.
Founders of the Dartford Folk Club, they ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
When it is safe to gather again, a celebration of their lives will be held to remember their friendship, achievements and 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.
