Something someone said about Jody:
‘You can’t do that on the concertina! Well, maybe you or I can’t, but tonight’s opener Jody Kruskal can. Jody is known in the contra-dance world as a wizard of the Anglo concertina as part of numerous bands including Grand Picnic and Squeezology. But as a solo performer, he applies the little squeeze box to the most unlikely of songs, including blues, ragtime, jazz, and novelty numbers to marvelous effect.’
The first of this season’s Frittenden sessions is on the 30th September with mighty melodeonist, fiddler and singer Matt Quinn, who is back in the South East after four hard years studying on the folk degree course at Newcastle upon Tyne.

We’re also launching a series of tunes sessions!
Join us for First Sunday tunes at the Gun and Spitroast on the first Sunday of each month from around 8pm, starting on Sunday the 7th October. The idea is to play a good mix of tunes, including whatever people bring along, as well as our own favourites, and a good helping of the tunes folks have been been looking at during the Wednesday night classes.
By the way – the free Wednesday trad music classes start again on the 12th September. As usual there will be lots of slow practising and working ways of making tunes come life!
