Kitto Road Folk

At the Hill Station Cafe on Kitto Road SE14 Hannah Elizabeth Young and George McNaughton Ellis are hosting a monthly 'Folk Sessions on the Hill'. Next one is on Sunday 19th March 2023 from 6 pm onwards. First time I went along a few months ago it was quite quiet, but it has quickly grown into a very popular night. The February event was packed, with lots of great performers - format is basically an open mic with a wide range of acoustic song styles.

 They are also taking part in the free folk festival that is happening on the afternoon of March 25th as part of the Telegraph Hill Festival, in the churchyard of St Catherine's next door to the Hill Station.

Down the road at Skehans there's lots of live music too including Irish sessions, a songwriters circle and live folk music on Sunday nights. Last weekend (Saturday 25th Feb) there was a different flavour with 
Dacre Morris and Greenwich Morris Men starting their tour of local pubs at Skehans, with dancing on the pavement outside - before heading off to do similar at the Golden Anchor, the Pyrotechnists Arms and the Old Nun's Head.
