We are a group of friends and musicians working on a Not For Profit basis, to bring a guaranteed high standard of musical entertainment to the folk of Newcastle and the wider area. Our resident musos have all been involved in performing at, and running folk clubs and similar venues, for as long as we can remember.

The times they are a’changing however, and we feel that a night out should be relaxing and inviting. Café style seating, BYO, candles and great live music should help you recharge your batteries after a hard week at the coal-face (OK! The wind turbine).

A night at Tradewinds at the Dungeon, should include brackets from our Residents who are:-

  • Carole Garland
  • Nicola Ross and Peter Allsop (DOCTOR’S WIFE)
  • Rob, Sarah and David Smith and Hannah Duque (SMITH FAMILY)

As well as the major act, supported by us, we may include an act from the local community. This could be a small vocal ensemble, dance group, teachers and their students, small instrumental groups or any other music group or individual.

It concerns us too, that our next generation of musicians, including those who have come from overseas, should find a happily accepting audience within this community – they have so much to offer us. Any such group is invited to contact one of our residents.
