Global Folk Club is now in its third year running and has amassed a following of regulars who enjoy diverse top notch musicianship and revel in the pub sing.

Sheehan is a charismatic songster, an interpreter of songs learned from some of America's greatest folk and blues artists. Her voice slides through old lyrics like clear water through a smooth creek bed, and her performances are memorable for the authentic range of her material: from unaccompanied ballads, to boozy Memphis blues, to old time banjo tunes, to old country songs and eclectic modern folk. She is a musical shape shifter, in one song making the willow weep and in another making the werewolf howl.
Experience authentic English pub singing with guidance from the pros. These fine fellows are well versed in songs about drinking and well practised at drinking while signing. Join in and feel part of the culture. Cheers!
