All nights start with an informal music session from about 7.30p.m. which welcomes musicians of all abilities.

Jez Lowe
(3.2.18) Jez Lowe

It's great to have Jez back at the Davy Lamp!
One of the best songwriters in the country, he has taken his songs of the North East around the world and back many times now and won numerous awards.
He's also just published his first novel 'The Dillen Doll' which, we have on good authority, is a riveting read.
Just sit back and enjoy!

Jens & Tom
(3.3.18) Jens Kommnik with Tom McConville

Although born in Germany, Jens became hooked on Celtic music at the age of 17 . He’s a stunning guitarist – introduced to us by his friend and ours – Tom.  The pair blew everybody away last time (and the time before!).  Amazing musicianship from the word go.  Don't miss them!

Allan Taylor
(7.4.18) Allan Taylor   

Allan’s been coming to the Davy Lamp for many years and we’re always very glad to welcome him back.  An impeccable performer and a masterful songwriter, Allan has had his songs covered by countless other performers, but nobody does them quite like him!

Daori Farrell
(5.5.18) Daori Farrell (tbc)

Irishman, Daoirí , took up music at the relatively late age of 16 and only started to perform at 23, but he has come a long way since then and the early release of his accomplished debut album. He became the All Ireland Champion Singer in 2013 and won the Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections in 2015 and the BBC Horizon Folk Award in 2017. We are delighted to welcome him to the Davy Lamp for the first time.

Roy Bailey
(2.6.17) Roy Bailey

Roy has one of the finest voices in the folk world and has a large, widespread and very loyal following worldwide.

He began singing as far back as 1958 but is still one of the big draws on the folk scene. With a repertoire of fantastic songs on social issues, Roy has worked with everyone who’s anyone over the years, including the likes of the great Pete Seeger.  He’s a very old friend of the club and we are very happy to have him back.

Mighty Doonans
(7.7.17) The Mighty Doonans

In a change from our usual programme in January, our old mates from Jarrow (and beyond) will be strutting their stuff in a summer gig.  All the usual - great music, songs and dancing and great craic!  Come early to avoid disappointment!

Coming soon....
Chris Sherburn & Denny Bartley with Emily Sanders... Jim Causley... David Francey (tbc)....

The sound system at the Davy Lamp is second to none.  Our sound engineer, Sean Taylor, ably assisted by his partner Melanie. is very experienced on the local music scene.
