Cloustreet, Lewes Saturday Folk Club

Cloudstreet - hot harmonies & beautiful ballads from Australia. Cloudstreet (John Thompson, Nicole Murray, Emma Nixon) present high-quality concert performances of new Australian folk music. Incorporating traditional and contemporary influences from England, Ireland and Australia, their music is engaging, exciting and fun. Cloudstreet's trademark is their innovative use of vocal harmony, supported by driving guitar, soaring wooden flute & fiddle along with concertina and percussion.

Cloudstreet will draw you into the stories behind the songs, lifting your spirits with laughter, delighting you with their musicality and sharing with you their passion for the great songs of the Australian tradition.

(A "cloudstreet" is a row of thermals marked by cumullus clouds. When gliders fly from thermal to thermal by following the clouds, they "fly the cloudstreet", staying aloft for miles.)

Cloudstreet will give us two forty-five minute spots and the rest of the evening is filled by members of the audience performing a song or tune if they wish.

Cloudstreet lead a vocal harmony workshop during the day.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in.

We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you 5 off an evening when admission is 5 or more. It's 7 tonight. Advance tickets are available from the club and through its website.
