This is a sing a long for sessions and parades.  I've only added the lyrics because I don't know the chords but Paul and Dave can tell you them...

It's a right chilled out and cozy folk session.  If you've got an instrument and wanna get involved, just come down.  Sometimes we have a bit of an open mic' session, even though we don't actually have a mic', but I'm sure you know what I'm on about.

Littleborough's very own folk jam session.  It does tend to be mainly members of Oakenhoof and The Black Nan Band occasionally interspersed with folky members of the wider community.  However, it's always a relaxed affair, and I'm pretty sure we're a friendly and welcoming bunch of all sorts ;0)  So, if you play anything, sing or dance, or just want to sit in, come down to Littleborough Con Club tonight at Eight Bells yes

Super Awesome Ceilidh with Alex and Nicola....  We're not performing, but it will be great if we could all make it to this brilliant night out, and celebrate being Oakenhoofers....

Come and have a jam at Littleborough Con Club with like minded folk musicians...  If you're a folky, come on down and get involved....

This is the tune for the new dance Georgia has been teaching the Oakenhoof Cloggers, written by Lin R.

It's a relaxed jam along session, we got tunes, or bring your tunes or songs, and have a jam along with the Black Nan Band..

"If music be the food of love", I'll have an all you can eat buffet....  It's Tuesday Folk Club at The Con Club..... 

It's an informal gathering of folk musicians with no pre-planned format.  It tends to shape itself based on who comes along.  Sometimes it's like a session, sometimes a rehearsal or workshop, and sometimes an open mic' round robin affair.  Which ever way, it's normally an hour or so of good folk and roots music.

So, if you want to get involved, just come on down, you can join in, or chill out with an ale and have a listen.

This is an extra rehearsal for Le Tour De France Day... Hopfully, I think we've got a fiddler.  

I've set up a page where we can comment, ask questions and the like.

Here is the tune that Nicola Beazley has written for Le Tour De France.
