***     TUESDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2021   ***

We welcome:     The Churchfitters      as our guests!

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


Why "Churchfitters"?    Nobody knows!    They're not fitters and have absolutely nothing to do with churches.
The name's origin is lost in the mists of time but there is one aspect that suits them perfectly - its quirkiness.

When your array of instruments includes a motorcycle petrol tank, a musical saw and a Mercedes Benzouki made from hubcaps there's little point worrying if the name makes sense!
Saucepan dulcimer, glass harp, Bing-Bong machine and magic boots all join some more conventional instruments (fiddle, banjo, sax and whistle to name a few) to back Rosie Short's sublime voice.

These four flamboyant characters present their uplifting and entertaining show with a unique dynamism and describe their music as "Folk Unlimited".

The Churchfitters are:    Rosie Short, Chris Short and Boris Lebret.


Looking forward to welcoming back our Dartford Folk Club family and friends!

PAM & ALAN COLLS

It is over five years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and a year 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.
