The best in acoustic music: contemporary and traditional folk, country, blues, comedy, jazz & standards
Every other Monday (closed during July) 8.00 p.m. - 10.30 p.m.
The Racehorse, Stratford Road, Warwick CV34 6AS
We welcome first timers and old hands alike - everyone will enjoy a
warm, supportive reception and of course, you're very welcome to come
and listen. Sometimes our we’ll have a theme, such as English or
American songs and we have a lot of fun on the ever popular Comedy
Night (as shown in the photo above right...)
On Guest nights we have top local artists who play two half hour sets
and also other local performers who will open each half.
On Concert Nights, we have the best contemporary, traditional and
comic performers such as Steve Tilston, John Kirkpatrick and Les Barker.
It’s held in the back room, separate to the rest of the pub so there’s no
problem with noise but the bar is just next door and it’s Everard’s beer so
people who like a pint with their music will be well catered for.
Do come and try it - just check the Programme page of the web site.
You'll hear high quality, varied music for a small outlay.
And you can be sure of a friendly welcome.

We’re not the kind of club you need to be a member of - you can just come
along on any Monday night we’re open and enjoy the music, which is wider
than the word “folk” might suggest - we enjoy all kinds of acoustic music.
We hold Performers' Nights
when we are hosts to anyone
who wants to sing, play or
even recite. You might like to
check out the Performers’ Night
page where you’ll find some
hints and tips and a few do’s
and don’ts that help make these
nights a lot of fun.
We have nothing against P.A. - we just don’t use one on
these nights - it’s a good room to sing in and a polite,
well-trained, listening audience. If you prefer to perform
at a specific time, please ask - the running order is Dave Fry & Martin Day
arranged to create a variety in the style, line-up and as Hardy and Nelson
gender wherever possible, not in order of arrival.
