It's the final podcast of 2017 and it's the Invisible Folk Club Christmas special.

We asked our network of musicians, friends & families to record Christmas or Winter songs and send them to us. From this material hosts Jon Bickley & Steve Yarwood have curated a wildly eclectic mix of sounds. They also take a look back over 2017 and talk about future plans. It's been a great first year for the Invisible Folk Club, please stay with us in 2018 and tell your friends.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Singer/guitarist Pete Nutkins trades songs and conversation with host Jon Bickley.

As a custodian of the tradition Pete reflects on how folk music and its song writing styles have evolved through the periodic revivals. He also discusses the current state of protest songs and whether they are still as potent and relevant today as they were in their 1960s heyday.

Singer/guitarist Pete Nutkins discusses morris dancing and a general passion for the English tradition with Invisible Folk Club host Jon Bickley.

Pete is also a member of the committee running Watford Folk Club and gives a fascinating insight into how the machine works. He talks frankly and informatively about dealing with the finances and the artists themselves.

Host Jon Bickley trades songs and stories with two very talented artists in session at the Invisible Folk Club. Singer/songwriters Alison Raymond (guitar/harmonica) and Tim Brooks (violin/guitar) perform a mix of original and traditional material. Jon added to the diversity by digging into his formidable back catalogue as well as airing some new material.

As befits the experience of the folks around the table the conversation covered some interesting ground, in particular the highs and lows of running a folk club and staging live events. There was much sound advice on offer for ambitious listeners.

Alison is a former committee member at Watford Folk Club as well as organiser of their prestigious annual song contest.

Tim, together with others, has recently revived Herga Folk Club in Harrow after the original club in Pinner closed back in June 2017. He is also heavily involved in the 'Abbots Langley Winter Acoustic Concerts' a unique series of eclectic Sunday afternoon concerts that take place in February, March, October & November each year. In our podcasts Tim talks about the ethos and organisation of these popular events.
