News from The Temperance…

… All-star listing of live recordings from local acts on new album released today.

by Adrian Gains

Our Leamington Folk Club nights have been hugely successful.  Each month (second Thursday), nine talented local musicians play short sets of mainly original music to a packed crowd.  We record these and have just released our first compilation album of just some of our favourite performances.   

 It’s a brilliant collection of songs from artists that deserve way more recognition.   Have a listen.  It may change the way you think about folk music. CD’s to follow, if we get enough interest.

Of course, it’s way better to hear music live and we have live music pretty much every night until Christmas.  And this Thursday, we have our wonderful folk club night.  And it’s a brilliant all-female line-up (see below), curated by our MC, the inimitable Andi Wolf.   Ridiculously cheap at £3.  Not very many spaces left, so grab them quick!  Doors 7pm.  Start 7:15pm.  Live-streamed as well.

Two of the featured artists featured on the album – Sheena Vultaggio and After the Flood‘s Corinne Lucy – are part of the all-female guest list lined up for this week’s Leamington Folk Club (with MC Andi Wolf as token male!)

You can find more details here of who is playing where in the CVFolk region – we’ll do all we can to keep this site up-to-date with dates, guests, support, admission and contact details, although we suggest you check with clubs and venues if you are planning to visit on spec.

Invitation to club organisers – keep the stories coming or why not have a go at writing them yourself?

Yes, you’d expect CVFolk to use this news page shamelessly to promote its own events – and we do.

But the project is about all folk-related activity in the CV postcode area. As more and more folk fans turn to this site for their regular fix of local folk revelations (the associated Facebook group has 860 followers and rising), why not put your own words on our news page and send in your news, reviews, exposés and scoops for publication, with your own by-lines!

No word limit, although the stories may be edited or tweaked to meet journalistic standards without losing the point of the story – or to weed out anything that might get someone sued! The only deadline is one week before the reported event takes place.

Photos are also welcome, although we can download some from the net to add visual appeal. And if you have any posters or flyers, send them in as well, preferably in jpg or png format and we can add them to the Notice Board and What’s On pages.

Send your details by email to, or via Messenger to Pete Willow’s Facebook page. Or phone/text Pete on 07887 552896.
