Just outside our borders, but strictly speaking included in the FASH area, Altan are appearing at Salisbury Rugby Club on Thursday 5th October 2023 at 7.30pm. This gig is organised by Finbarr Sheehan who promotes Irish music in the Salisbury area to raise funds for Salisbury Hospice.

Also further afield, in the opposite direction, Chichester Folk Song Club meets every Monday at the Chichester Inn. Usually once a month, it is a Guest Night; there are two guest nights in October, George Sansome & Matt Quinn on the 2nd and Paul Openshaw on the 23rd. Novembers guests will be The Long Hill Ramblers on the 27th. Remember there is an informal session at 7.45 until the club proper opens at 8.15. See their website for more information and to look at their "latest poster" for the diary of events.


We have moved many of the venues we have been including on this page to our Folk Clubs and Arts Centres dairy. We hope in future to include a few more venues in and around our area. This change is also reflected in our journal 'Solent Waves', as now we do not have limitations of numbers of pages and printing/distribution costs, we can make the diaries longer.


Lots of concerts etc. at Cecil Sharp House - they have announced their Autumn programme; click here to see it. For everything else look here and then choose a sub-category. There is now a link on the home page of the EFDSS website to events around the country which members have asked to be listed. Click here and scroll down to see everything.


Also check the many events, courses and workshops at Halsway Manor in Someset. Their program is here and runs well into next year, even beyond.
