IMPORTANT 2006 UPDATE!

Added 24 Jan 2006

Unfortunately we were unable to organise any gigs at the Heart Of Lincolnshire Folk, Roots & Blues Club in 2005 due to personal circumstances.

In the autumn of 2005 the Eagle Lodge Hotel in Woodhall Spa was sold and is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment. We understand that it is being renamed the Woodhall Spa Hotel.

The future of the club at this venue remains at this time very uncertain, and we are not able to book any acts at the current time.

We will update this site as and when we have any news regarding gigs at the club.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Eagle Lodge's previous owner Mark Jackson for his great support and help with organising gigs, publicity and artists' accomodation which enabled us to bring some great acts to Woodhall Spa between Mar 2000 - Nov 2004.


IRIS

We would also like to pay tribute to Ali's mum, Iris who ensured a warm Lincolnshire welcome to both guest musicians and audience alike, and ensured Tom's introductions were kept relatively brief and to the point!

Sadly Iris died on Oct 26th 2005 after a 15 month long illness.


INTRODUCTION

The Heart Of Lincolnshire Folk, Roots & Blues Club (formerly known as the Coningsby Folk, Roots & Blues Club) is currently based at Woodhall Spa in the heart of rural Lincolnshire, a county with a rich tradition of folk singing. It was in this county that Australian Composer Percy Grainger recorded many traditional English songs on his primitive recording device, hence songs handed down through the years to be sung by local performers such as Joseph Taylor were kept for posterity, & still feature in folk clubs like ours today.

It is the aim of the club to bring top quality musical performers, playing a variety of acoustic based music, to this picturesque & still relatively unspoilt part of England. As well as performers from outside the area, we hope to be able to showcase some of the talented singers & musicians from Lincolnshire.

But your support is vital to the future of our club!
