The line up local musicians who performed in our Chorleywood Magazine Rhythm Tent on Village Day were much appreciated along with the local cider supplied by Chorleywood Cider Club!


Paul Jones

Chorleywood boy, London cabbie and passionate muso known for his enthusiastic performances and the occasional witty lyric. Paul loves belting out covers.. from Elton John Lionel Ritchie and The Bee Gees. He currently hosts music night Paul Jones Presents at The White Horse on the first Saturday of the month.






Phil Kelly

Lancastrian Phil’s life journey brought him from Chorley to Chorleywood via London where he arrived in 1986 aged 22 to follow his dream of a music career. Phil works full time as a Quantity Surveyor for a luxury housebuilder but loves playing live music, writing songs and recording. Find him at local Open Mic sessions and Paul Jones Presents at The White Horse.

Viv Bartlett

Chorleywood Singer/songwriter and witticist Viv Bartlett took a short break from music (a couple of decades) to raise a family but once the boy was off to Uni, he reconnected with his love of writing and performing. Now a regular at Chorleywood openmic events, Viv is also a founder member of local alt-country/americana band Tumblewood. Viv also gets a masochistic thrill from performing his more satirical works on the London openmic comedy circuit as his comic alter ego, Stig Spiggleton.



Lucy Mair

Singer songwriter from Chesham whose jazz-influenced pop melodies are combined with heartfelt lyrics. Lucy’s stunning vocals are accompanied by keyboard and guitar with a loop pedal and complex vocal harmonies. Her top gigs this year include supporting Clean Bandit and Grace Jones at Standon Calling and Chorleywood Magazine Rhythm Stage at Village Day!  Her first single of 2017, Midnight Car Ride, was a track of the week on BBC Introducing.

Sam Voltz

Bucks based acoustic singer songwriter recently returned from travelling around New Zealand & Australia with his guitar, busking everywhere he went. Sam is a big fan of acoustic folk and greatly influenced by Matt Corby. He plays with a consortium of pedals .One of his favourite venues of all time was Paddington station where he played a charity gig for Evergreen Africa!

The Dog Roses

The Dog Roses do for Country what the Pogues did for Irish Music – inject it with a huge dose of Rock ‘n’ roll. Their foot stomping mix of rockin’ bluegrass went down a storm at Village Day. The band drove from various corners of the country to join Chorleywooder, guitarist Egg, for the gig, and having packed up their kit ready to shoot off for an evening booking in London, unloaded everything (including drums) to play a second time when the last act failed to make it. Legends.


With thanks to Chris for the country seating, Lords for Rag Rug comfort, George for generous generator supply, Nia Vee for hosting, Mick Flinn for sound, Bob for transport and the chaps and chapesses of Chorleywood Cider Club for their top brews and all the artists who did cracking job…
