Please note, we are not always at the same venue.
Always check before travelling long distances for changes to venue, dates or programme.
We are a thriving club for Bluegrass music enthusiasts in the South East, featuring live acoustic music and guest bands in a friendly atmosphere. Please see our Upcoming Events page for dates and times of confirmed clubnights.
We started a resident band, Devils Den, made up of friends of long standing:- Ray Tassie, (Mandolin) Richard Hook, (Guitar) Dave Smith, (Guitar) and Mike Flood, (Bass). All have been in bands since the late 50’s early 60’s, The Hickory Nuts, The Folkvendors, Tamarisk, Plastic Bukitt, Wild Oats, and Deep River to mention a few.
During the 90’s other things took priority and enthusiasm slipped. There have been a few changes due to illness and house moves. A new line up and a change of name – The Grass Hoppers, Ray Tassie, (Mandolin) Mike Flood, (Bass) Ges Blackmore, (Guitar) and Adrian 'Eddie' Greene, (Banjo).
As from November 2010 the resident band was called Alive & Picking. There have been a few changes...
2015, at last we have found a Fiddle player, Jim Neale so are now a 5 piece band
2016, Sad to say we have had a change of line up Eddie Greene (Banjo) has gone back to his Irish roots music.
2017, Hilary Gowen (Banjo) has filled the gap admirably, we are very lucky to have him on board.
This is the stage we are at now learning as we go along, playing for fun and enjoyment and hoping others are enjoying it too.
(Band to be advised)
