Unfortunately, we are unable to have any live events at The Lamb for a while yet. However, we are now arranging live streams for our normal 2021 meeting dates. Where possible, these will still be on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. They will be the artists we did have booked for live sessions in 2020, and will be on YouTube, Zoom, or some other as-yet unexplored streaming platform! Watch this space, or sign up to our mailing list for early information on these streams. Email We promise not to deluge you with lots of emails. Two a month, around the normal club dates.


We are hosting 2 more online shows in March. These are new faces for The Lamb and I think are both excellent singers. Both will be live streams on Zoom or Facebook, and free to watch, with a tip jar for the artists. Please consider giving a sum equivalent to our normal door prices, I hope you will feel they are good value. Details are below.


March 3 at 8pm  -  Jimmy Lee online gig

Jimmy Lee has the total ease and assurance of a man who has clocked up many many hours behind the microphone, it shows and it makes a difference!

A balladeer that knows how to capture life in his songs. Two sets one good night. And as the old saying goes, it’s about the quality!

When Jimmy Lee played at Royston Folk Club, it was one of our best evenings ever!

March 17 at 8pm  -   Lizzy Hardingham  online gig 
South-East based folk musician and songstress, Lizzy Hardingham, is paving her way as a powerhouse performer with "beautifully delivered songs that sing straight to the heart". 2019 saw her storm the UK folk club and festival scene, including Cambridge Folk Festival, while in 2020 she captivated online audiences with "a voice that could fill a stadium and the sensitivity to bring a room to attentive silence". Lizzy is currently being mentored by the English Folk Expo and working on "firmly nailing her place as one of the rising stars of the folk scene".

Lizzy will stream on her Facebook page. Lizzy Hardingham | Facebook


Following the latest lockdown news, we may be able to resume live club sessions in the summer, if that can be arranged with the Lamb. Our booking for 7th July was due to play for us in March 2020, just when lockdown hit, so an early repeat booking was made.

July 7 at 8pm  -   Ray Cooper - LIVE GIG!!
Ray Cooper: Land of Heroes, release April 16th 2021. Stories are at the centre of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ray Cooper’s work and his fourth album Land of Heroes follows the question who today’s heroes are. 

Cross your fingers and hope!!
