Huw Williams

 Huw played at the club for the first time last year and went down a storm, with his well-crafted and finely-honed songs, each one an absolute belter. He’s a grand singer and a hugely entertaining performer and we are very happy to welcome him back.

Jens & Tom
(2.11.19) Jens Kommnik with Tom McConville

Jens is a wonderful guitarist whose style has been described by some as Celtic Finger Style Guitar, with influences from classical and jazz. In 2012, Jens became the first and only German musician ever to win the All Ireland Championships, not only once, but twice, both as a soloist and an accompanist.  Tom is one of the leading fiddle players in the British Isles. He is a brilliant musician with a unique style, and is always in demand for his sensitive accompaniments for other musicians. He’s a grand singer, too.  This is a magical combination!

Dana & Susan

Dana & Susan Robinson play traditional American music, as well as their own material, with elegant simplicity, on guitar, fiddle and banjo. They combine vivid, songwriting and storytelling, with fiddle tunes, clawhammer banjo, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing. They’ve been coming to the Davy Lamp for many years now, although it’s a couple of years since they were last here, so they’re all the more welcome.
