HATFUL OF RAIN + Jon Wilks
Hatful of Rain are a trio based in East Sussex, who have been playing together since 2010. They have visited Grayshott twice before (February 2018 and July 2013), and are sure to put in another great live performance. They are much appreciated by our audience.
Their music is a blend of British Folk & Americana styles, centred around songs with timeless themes of love and loss, domestic hardships, migration, identity, celebration & grief. The beautiful melodies they play can sometimes be accompanied by some hard-hitting lyrics.

HOR have released 3 albums and 1 EP to date and have toured widely in the UK on the folk circuit; rooms above pubs, folk clubs, village halls, festivals, house concerts and theatres. Originally a four-piece, 2019 brings a period of change following the retirement of fiddle player James Shenton.
Concentrating on arrangements and nuances of their song writing, the new format has been met with a warm response.
Hatful of Rain are:
Chloe Overton – vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmonica.
Phil Jones, double bass, vocals, guitar, banjo
Fred Gregory, guitar, vocals and mandolin.
“So very hard to resist” Wychwood Folk Club.
“Great to work with and a great live act” Ken Brown, Square Roots Promotions.

+ Jon Wilks
Jon has only just recently come to our attention. We were told about him by one of his fellow musicians and having heard what he does online, we had no hesitation in booking him. We heartily welcome Jon for his first visit to Grayshott Folk Club and we know you will like him. We suspect we will be re-booking him again very soon as he is a great prospect.
