Your Club Hosts.


The Sandpiper Acoustic and Folk Club is organized, administered and hosted by the West Midlands based Contemporary Folk Band called G.L.I.N.T. 


That's:

Geoff Gooding, Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Dulcimer, Vocals

Brian Lindop, Guitar, Vocals

Roger Ingram, Guitar, Harmonica, Penny Whistle, Lead Vocals



We have known each other for nearly 50 years and all played together at some time in a variety of Pop, Rock, Blues and Folk Bands in the early 60's and 70's. In 2011 we all got together after Facebook encounters and bumping into each other in the Opticians etc. It was decided that we have a reunion in a local pub. A week later, G.L.I.N.T. was formed.


Roger and Brian have had experience of running a Folk Club in the past as they opened and ran the original  and very successful "Sandpiper Folk Club" based in the village of Brewood at the Lion Hotel back in 1968.


We promise to do our best to make the new "Sandpiper" as successful as it's predecessor.


The new Sandpiper Folk Club operates on a fortnightly basis on Wednesday evenings and is based upstairs at the Pigot Arms in the village of Pattingham. Please come along and visit us. We would be delighted to see you.
