1st February featuring Bird in the Belly plus floorspots


Greetings all,

February is upon us, dry January is over (if it ever started!) and we’ve got another great act at the Gorringe Park for Tooting Folk.

Bird in the Belly is a Brighton-based group composed of folk-duo Hickory Signals (Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti), alt-folk singer-songwriter Ben Webb (Jinnwoo, Green Ribbons), and multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom Pryor.

They create what have been described as “hypnotically original compositions” based on little known and forgotten lyrics, poems and stories from around the UK.

As always there will also be floor spots! Those who want to perform should come along at 7:30pm to put your name on the list.

Doors 7:30pm. Music starts at 8pm. Entry £6.

Upstairs at the Gorringe Park, 29 London Road, Tooting, SW17 9JR

See y’all there!

Any queries, call/message 07375481959 (Sarah) or 07951163434 (Alex)

Saturday 2nd November 2013 – ONE YEAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOOTING FOLK PARTY! Featuring Skiffle and The Piffles

Yes, we made it, in November we will have been running for one whole year!  It’s been a great year, and we are very lucky to have some fantastic regular floor spot performers who are a huge part of the night as well as lots of great guest acts.    To celebrate, we have the eight piece Skiffle and The Piffles as our guest act for the night, plus floor spots of course!

Skiffle piffle

Inspired by the rockabilly, folk and bluegrass of the 50s and 60s, 8 piece Skiffle and the Piffles formed in 2010.  Taking inspiration from the greats like the Carter Family and Wanda Jackson, they stir up a mix of girl group harmonies, stomping rhythms and finger pickin’riffs in their own unique style that is sure to have you singing along and dancing on tables.  Dusting off the washboard, accordion and box drum, expect a contemporary take on some old classics and many brand new tracks from their recent “Bones in the Ground” EP and beyond.


There will also be floor spots as usual, so come along and sing a song!  With or without an instrument, traditional or original.  Or read a poem.  Or do a dance.

Doors 7.30pm, music starts at 8pm. Come along at 7.30pm to put your name down for floor spots. Entry is £3, all the door money goes to the guest act.
