The fabulous Abrams brothers will be playing Rochester Cathedral on Monday 27th May.

The Abrams are one of Canada’s biggest country and Bluegrass bands. They have been taking their distinct Americana/Country sound on international tours for over sixteen years. They are among the youngest performers to play the world-famous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Their debut single, Fine, charted in the Top 40 on US Country Radio. Their incredible and energetic live performances feature new original songs produced by Grammy Award nominated producer, Gavin Brown.

Rochester Cathedral is the last venue on their 19 stop Sounds Good To Me US/UK tour. They last played at the Cathedral in 2017 where they wowed the audience with their combination of blue grass, country and folk/pop-rock.  Don’t miss this chance to see this world class act who have been described by American folk singer Arlo Guthrie as ‘way too young to be playing that good.’

The Abrams will be supported by local singer-songwriters Jonica Love and Rachel Lowrie.

Tickets available online or from the Rochester Cathedral shop.

Adults £18

Student/Under 16 £12

Unreserved seating

Doors open at 6.45pm

Word reaches us that Yvonne Broad has passed away. Part of the team that ran the sucessful Bar JT club in Sittingbourne for many years and a visitor to other local clubs she will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts go to husband Brian, and her family and friends.

The funeral is at Bobbing Crematorium on the Monday 4th March 11.00am

We are pleased to announce that we hear of a new club starting up.

Whilst it is not in Kent, we know that clubs need all the publicity they can get, and its not too far away.

You will be welcomed at the Lone Wolf C.M.C. 

Details of the artistes and the venue are here

Having a great time in Germany with Danny and Barbara.  We are staying with Michael and Erika Schmidt who also runs a country and western club here in Beiemheim. He has a website called Michael did a workshop for his new line dance and he did a video of Barbara and I doing the dance in his garden, which he has now put on his website.
The YouTube video of the workshop on the lawn can be found at

On the site - you will find the Stepsheets and Videolinks.

The weather has been great.  Tonight (Sat 5th May) we are going to another country and western club, resting day tomorrow and back home on Monday.

There are false rumours circulating that artistes have been cancelled or changed at the Golden Eagle.

This could simply be that the club is being confused with one of the other 'Golden Eagles' that are around the country.

The planned programme is unchanged from that previously published. These can be found here on Kent Country or on the Golden Eagle web page at

Rustlers CMCWe have recieved the following from Vince Keeler.

Hi Maggie & Mick,
Please could you put up on your website that it is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that December 16th 2017 will be The Rustlers C.M.C. very last night.

After much deliberation we will be closing our club after some 30+ years we have had a great time running the club and will be sad to say goodbye to all our regular supporters but due to financial difficulties and health issues with my father and co founder of the club we feel we have no choice but to call time on the club.

We hope everyone will come and support us on our last night with Martin Jaye on December 16th and have a great farewell night for the club.

Many thanks Vince
