No featured artist this time, so lots of opportunity for everyone else to perform if they want to do so.

Everyone is made welcome, whether or not they perform – audience are just as important!  It’s a friendly, fun environment for all styles and genres, and although everyone is encouraged to sing, say or play, no-one will be pushed to do so unless they want to.

SONG - Shammick Acoustic - The Teacups
Comprising the talents of four graduates of Newcastle’s Folk and Traditional Music degree course, this a capella quartet has been singing up a storm across the UK circuit during the past few years, with acclaimed performances at Shepley, Beverley, Warwick, Sidmouth, Whitby and many other top folk festivals, as well as in Europe.  One of their number, Alex Cumming, is no stranger to Shammick Acoustic – in fact, he regards it as one of his favourite clubs – having performed here with Nicola Beazley and with James Finlay.  Now living in the US, he is a multi-talented performer and workshop leader in both countries.  Kate Locksley, concentrates on songs and singing, whether it be with The Teacups, the all-female a capella trio Wychwood, or with the folk trio Night Fall.  Rosie Calvert is another multi-talented person who teaches, composes,makes and plays instruments as well as singing, and performs with female trio Speldosa and in a duo with the other member of The Teacups, Will Finn, who she describes as ‘awesome’.  As a whole, The Teacups provide “a proper feat of English folk songs sung with intelligence, heart, and soul.”  Can’t wait!



Admission on guest nights £8.00 (£7.00 if bought in advance) ~ and members of Shammick Acoustic get a further reduction, priced at £7.00 (£6.00 if bought in advance). PLEASE NOTE: ‘paid in advance’ means paid, it doesn’t mean ‘reserved in advance’. Advance tickets can be bought up to a month before the event at Shammick Acoustic Sessions, OR at The Pack O’ Cards OR at Pet's Pantry in Combe Martin High Street. Advance tickets for non-members, can also be purchased by going to WeGotTickets
