The Travelling Folk

Logo

The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before.

Welcome

Welcome to the new TTF website! Besides continuing to publicise our forthcoming sessions and other events, we have taken the opportunity to add lots of new photos of previous activities.

Our thanks to Richard, an occasional TTF participant, for helping to develop this new resource.

We also wish to express our grateful thanks to the former webmaster, Jeremy Waters, for his sterling service in running the old website.

For those of you who missed the Christmas session at the Bush Blackbird and Thrush, it is good to be able to report that our raffle there in the bar produced £67.03 for the Philippines Typhoon appeal, which Liz forwarded through World Vision.

Bill Dennis

It is with deep sadness that Bill Dennis has died aged 81. He had been a stalwart of The Travelling Folk for many years and indeed was one half of the team, Bill & Den (Giddens). His dulcet tones and lovely songs will be sadly missed as will he. Obituary
