Niamh Mahon is an Irish actress, writer and storyteller. Listen to her stories, hear about the art of storytelling.

...and when she spoke time stood still
worlds came and went
the sun rose and set in an hour
kings reigned and great forests grew
blossomed and died
dragons rose and fell

Who are the people responsible for the Invisible Folk Club? How did we get where we are today? Now is your chance to find out.

DJ/interviewer/musician Jon Bickley and producer Steve Yarwood were invited along to Radio Dacorum in Hemel Hempstead to have a chat about the story so far. The genial Leslie Tate was master of ceremonies and asked us about things visible and invisible.

We were able to select four songs to play during the show:
Lizzy Hardingham - Cheshire Man
Odette Michell - The Wildest Rose
Jon Bickley - Butterfly Girl
Craig Joiner - Lolly Song

Jack Harris is a Welsh born London based singer/songwriter. His career was off to a flying start in 2005 when aged 19 he won the prestigious New Folk Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival (Texas).

These days he's an older, wiser, more reflective man. His literate and compassionate songs rooted in Folk and Blues traditions frequently navigate into less charted lyrical areas and the darker sides of life. As a live act his fluid guitar style, engaging personality and dry humour have served him well whether opening for well known artists or playing solo at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe.

A key early influence was Randy Newman, as was an enlightening Christmas present consisting of Joni Mitchell's Blue, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and Tom Waits' Heartattack and Vine. Sacred texts had been brought down from the mountain and the news was good!
