Broomdasher is a London-based acapella group that first came together in 2016. The quartet comprises of Richard Cryan, Deena Marcus-Jedamzik, Margaret Moore & Jo Swinhoe, accomplished musicians who have spent many years performing both solo and in other groups.

They share a love of traditional songs from across the British Isles, entertaining audiences with their arrangements of both the much-loved and less well-known songs & encouraging audiences to join in.

Broomdasher regularly sing at folk clubs & festivals & have also hosted their own radio specials. All their recordings are in the British Library’s National Sound Archive Collection as “an outstanding example of grassroots folk music today.”

From 7.30 pm until 8.15 pm, we’re open to lively floorspots before Broomdasher comes on for the first of their two sets. Singers, musicians, and poets are welcome. Come early if you’d like to do a turn. Time is limited, and we’ll try to fit in as many as possible. Please be ready when you’re called, and keep it short and sweet—this part of the evening won’t be allowed to overrun!!

A hat collection in CASH goes in its entirety to the guests. The suggested minimum contribution is £6, but please give a little more if you can afford it.

The club premises & CAMRA award-winning bar will be open on the day from 5.30 pm. It’s CARD payments only free entry to OLC members & £1 to non-members.
