...And what a programme to come in
Namara - It is always a pleasure to play at the Watford Folk Club. The organisers are so welcoming and friendly, there is so much talent amongst the floor singers , and they are listeners - the ideal audience for our music.
Hannah Martin - This (Watford) is one of our favorite folk clubs.
