Praise for the Folk Club 

 Maddie Morris sent us this after performing at the Folk Club on 16th February:

"Cambridge Folk Club is an example of what a folk club should look like, and the direction I hope the folk scene continues to go in. With a commitment both to the tradition, and to creating events that welcome everyone. Cambridge Folk Club is a warm, welcoming and safe atmosphere for artists and audiences and a true embodiment of what folk music should be. People coming together, sharing music, laughter and community through song. The team are welcoming, friendly and helpful, the sound is beautiful and the audiences are appreciative."

Brooks Williams and Aaron Catlow are back at the Cambridge Folk Club after last year’s sell out concert.

With three albums under their belt, ‘Ghost Owl’ in 2021 (nominated “Instrumental Album Of The Year” by Fatea) and ‘Ready For The Times’ in 2022 (“a cracker,” says Living Tradition), and ‘Greens And Blues’ in 2024, Brooks Williams and Aaron Catlow are moving deeper into their sound. There is literally no one else on the scene playing this kind of music. You see fiddle and guitar and you think you know what to expect, but Williams and Catlow deliver something completely different. They are a one-off.

Aaron Catlow is half of the Bristol-based duo Hawes and Catlow, with guitarist-singer Kit Hawes. He is also the fiddler in UK festival favourite Sheelanagig. Catlow's other credits including playing with Grammy Award-nominated Yola, Mad Dog Mcrea and Afro Celt Sound System.


Cambridge UK-based, Georgia US-born, Brooks Williams has a long-standing solo career in both North America and the UK and is also known for his collaborations with the likes of Dan Walsh, Sloan Wainwright, Hans Theessink, Boo Hewerdine, Guy Davis and Rab Noakes, among others. He is named one of WUMB-FM Boston's Top 100 All-Time Artists. Fatea refers to him as “one of those select few 'how on earth does he do it?!' artists."

Not only are Brooks Williams and Aaron Catlow masters of their respective instruments, but the music they create, says Folk Radio UK, is “a thing of beauty!”



Cambridge & Walker

Cambridge and Walker play and sing their own arrangements of self-penned, traditional and contemporary folk songs. They have a particular fondness for vocal harmonies. David (Cambridge) sings and plays guitar/guzouki  and Jenna (Walker) sings and plays piano/melodeon/piano accordion/sansula. In March of 2021, they released their first full album Wheel and Dive (available from their Bandcamp page and all major streaming platforms), which marked a significant point in their musical journey over the last 3/4 years.

"beautifully balanced blend of traditional and contemporary, made even more magical by the alchemic vocal harmonies that fuse the rustic clarity of Cambridge's voice with Walker's gentle huskiness” – FATEA.
