The Green Ginger Club - Singers, Songs and Stories

The Green Ginger Club provides a virtual venue where artists of all genres, old and new, to meet, play their songs, talk about the places they've played and the people they've played with and tell stories about their music journey.  The Green Ginger Club is all about having fun!! 

As well as some serious discussion of their music, guests will usually be asked to recount their worst gigs, the worst clubs they’ve played at and their most amusing experiences.

Let us know if there is anything or anyone you would like to hear from/about

How it all began (again!). 

From this little acorn grew the Green Ginger Club...and the Green Ginger YOUTUBE channel. Great things planned and it continues to evolve and grow.

If there are artists, songs or stuff about the finances of folk music you want to know more about let us know and we will provide our own and the experiences of others
