EIGHT-PIECE folk rock band Home Service, who were voted Best Live Act at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2012, will be playing the Grayshott Folk Club in the atmospheric setting of St Alban’s Church, Hindhead, this Saturday.

Originally formed in 1981, Home Service rose from the ashes of Ashley Hutchings’ Albion Band and still feature top folk rock musicians Graeme Taylor on guitar, Michael Gregory on drums, plus John Kirkpatrick on Accordion and vocals.

Home Service will be joined by Bof! from Hadleigh in Suffolk, who will be playing their traditional French songs and dance tunes on a selection of unusual instruments.

St Alban’s Church is at Tilford Road in Hindhead. Tickets for the event are £18 from all the usual places or by contacting Des O’Byrne on 01428 607096.

Also a winner in the BBC Radio Folk Awards – a double winner this year in fact – is Dublin-born Daoiri Farrell, who has been taking the folk world by storm.

With his authentic interpretations of Irish song, Daoiri will be heading to Hambledon Youth Club Hut next to the village hall on November 8.

This year at the BBC Folk Awards he scooped Best Traditional Track and the Horizon award for Best Emerging Artist on the folk scene.
