BOOKING ARTISTS FOR LINCON FOLK IN THE CELLAR…(and faldingworthlive)…...
folk music as a live performance…..

This is what we do…..Andy has been promoting folk events for over forty years so he has a store of contact details for most folk artists…but he is always open to suggestions and contacts from the public and new (to us) artists….the rule is that an artist must be seen in performance to be considered for booking.

Other musical genre such as blues, as well as main stream and traditional folk artists will be considered.

We go to as many local gigs and national festivals as we can to see in performance acts that have been recommended to us.

Andy is also always looking out for new local support acts, as well as inviting established local artists to support…. are you interested in doing a support act ?  Please speak to Andy using the contact details at the top of this site.

PROGRAMME FOR 2015 SEASON

ARTISTS FOR 2016 SEASON (sorry, can't yet delete the 2015 season banner!)

MARTIN SIMPSON    www.martinsimpson.com
Saturday 5 March 2016                                      £12

Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin's interpretations of traditional songs are storytelling masterpieces.  There is no one who has more successfully combined the different elements of British, American and old-timey  music.  Whether playing any of these genres, a Dylan song or his own excellent material, Martin's diverse interpretations are impossible to predict.

A new venue is being used this time for our Martin Simpson concert as we had to turn so many people away last time we staged this amazing artist….and quite frankly it was an unacceptable squeeze for our accommodating audience in our usual cellar venue..so we are using the excellent and larger upstairs hall at the Alive Church 22 Newland Street Lincoln LN1 1XD. There is a lift. We are grateful to be able to hire this fine venue, but we would point out that this is not being put on by the church but by Lincoln Folk in the Cellar. Bar drinks will be provided by purchasing raffle tickets at the appropriate price.


STEVE TILSTON
Saturday 23 April 2016                         £9/£9.50
www.stevetilston.com

Steve has been described as an artist of stylistic versatility and consummate musicality, a complete guitarist and a singer songwriter of rare talent and absurd accomplishment.  Most people would have to agree with this.  The writer of classic songs such as 'Slip Jigs and Reels', 'The Naked Highwayman', and 'Here's to Tom Paine', he is in his forty-fifth year in folk business and is a great favourite in Lincoln. 
and this event is in our usual cellar venue at the Unison Club Beaumont Fee Lincoln.


coming up….coming up…coming up
is our Autumn Programme in Lincoln….don't go away!….look again soon….and you will find yet more to delight you at Lincoln Folk in the Cellar.

VENUE - the venue for Lincoln Folk in the Cellar is the UNISON CLUB


The Unison Club is in central Lincoln, one minute's walk from the High Street, seven minutes walk from the Cathedral. 

Finding us  LN1 1EZ IS THE UNISON CLUB'S POST CODE.   The Unison Club is in a red brick victorian house surrounded by trees in the BIG car park in front of Lincoln City Council offices.  Folk in the Cellar is in … its cellar!  

Usually you can park relatively easily, although we are ashamed to say that you have to pay after 6.00 pm.   The car park entrance is from Beaumont Fee Road, a left turn when coming from the direction of  Lincoln High Street, and just before (or after) and roughly opposite, the Police Station but behind a row of victorian houses.

There is no big sign saying Unison Club so you do need to look carefully. We are down some rather steep stairs at the side entrance to the building.

Access  Because of 'and down the stairs',  access isn't as easy as we would like, so for all those who are DISABLED, or anyone who doesn't like the sound of those steep steps - just contact us by phone or email a few days before a gig, and we will make sure that someone will guide you to the second access (a set of very shallow doors leading downstairs from the outside to the fire escape door into the concert room.)

Comfort  This is a seated venue.  The cellar has its own pleasant and separate bar. The beer is good and reasonably priced and tea or coffee is also available.  Seating in the concert room is on padded bench seating around the room. There are also chairs. Again if you would like us to reserve chairs or bench seating we will be pleased to do so.

Performing  John Renbourne told us that playing for us is like the old days! The acoustics are fantastic because of course the concert room is a cellar. When necessary sound is provided by the artists or some generous soul like Terry Cater, but some artists prefer not to use sound equipment and be truly acoustic.

We have a small temporary stage, which we put up for any artist who prefers a stage.  Otherwise there is no stage. We start with a forty-five minute support set from a quality local artist. The artists are very close to their audience (even if they are using the stage) and this makes for an intimate experience, which peformers like. All our main artists are contracted to play for an hour and a half. This allows them, and you, to really 'get into' the music and we feel is a different experience from say a festival performance of perhaps twenty minutes or half an hour. We really have had some fantastic evenings!
