It is time to dust off the old guitar, kick back and relax as Singers’ Night returns to the Cabbage Patch in Twickenham.

The chilled evening of entertainment is hosted by Twickfolk and will feature a variety of different music types as well as all sorts of performers including poetry and storytelling.

Quirky Hertfordshire quartet KARA will play two 20 minute sets through the night, fusing Russian folk music with the imagination of theatre.

Resident singer Sue Graves said: “All the music at TwickFolk is live and our singer’s nights give everyone a chance to sing, play an instrument, recite a poem or tell a story.

“If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.

“Taking part in a singers’ night isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone and you’re not expected to have reached a particular standard of musicianship.

“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old - and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”

Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book, but it is advised to check the website in case of last-minute venue alterations.
