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

Tom Mc
(5.5.18)    Tom McConville
                with Andy Watt and Julian Surtees
Our dear friend, award-winning fiddle player extraordinaire, highly distinctive singer and all round good guy will treat us to some wonderful songs and music, alongside his choice of accompanists -- the excellent gutarist Andy Watt who's played for us many times  and the amazing Julian Surtees on accordion, who is often seen on stage with Sting!  This will be a great night of talent!

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.

(4.8.18) Jim Causley                                                                                          
Jim first came to the Davy Lamp when he was a student on the Newcastle University Folk Degree course, and knocked everyone out with his amazing voice.
During the past decade, he's been nominated no less than six times for the BBC2 Folk Award including 'Singer of the Year' in 2017
and the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year in 2014.
We are delighted to welcome him back to the Davy Lamp as our guest for August

Chris Denny and Emily
(6.10.18) Chris Sherburn, Denny Bartley and Emily Sanders

Chris & Denny are firmly back touring together. Chris must be one of the best and most dynamic concertina players on the planet, and Denny has a powerful singing style that is all his own, matched with some equally powerful guitar playing.  The duo are now joined by the wonderful fiddle player and singer Emily Sanders who brings magic accompaniment and beautiful harmonies. Add to all that some great crack in between songs and you’ve got the perfect night.  Don't miss this!

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.
