1) The Horsham Folk Club programme is at http://www.horshamfolkclub.co.uk/ but I shall summarise the next couple of dates below.
Sunday Oct 11th Steve
Steve Winchester regularly captivates audiences with just voice and acoustic guitar. With an effortless, unassuming air that belies his talent, he takes you to another peaceful, dreamy place. Check out the silky tones on songs like "The Girl from the Hiring Fair". A songwriter in his own right, Steve’s original songs are first class. This guy is all about balance – never too much, never too little and the music does all the talking. Winchester
Admission £5 (members £3). Under 18s Free.
Sunday Oct 18th So Long Angel Fran McGillivray and Mike Burke are a duo with a history in roots music and McGillivray’s relaxed yet intimate vocal style allows the songs to come alive, whether it’s a traditional song or one of their own.
Fronted with vocals from bass guitarist (and sometimes flautist) Fran McGillivray, Mike Burke plays lead guitar and sings backup vocals. Their music is a fusion of blues and jazz - beautifully presented and with a lot of their own compositions as well as some refreshing interpretations of classic standards.

4) Southern English Step Dancing.
Val Shipley, who gave a demonstration of Southern English Step Dancing at the club last Sunday, is anxious that the skills should not die out and has asked me to draw attention to the regular sessions in the back bar of the Swan at Falmer. It takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at around 8.00 pm and is an opportunity to acquire or develop step dance skills. If you need more information call Val on 01273 270932.
