Grayshott Folk Club presents: The Leisure Society + Zak Hobbs Saturday 21st September 2019 7:30pm to 10:45pm

Could this be Grayshott Folk Club’s finest hour?

Tonight we welcome one of my very favourite Indie Folk/Pop/Rock bands to Grayshott Village Hall. The Leisure Society combine melodic, infectious tunes with intelligent, inventive lyrics. They are a great live band too and eleven years and five albums since they started out in 2008, they sound as fresh and exciting as ever.

Their first single “Last Of The Melting Snow” set the bar high-it won Nick Hemming a nomination for an Ivor Novello Award in 2009. Their first album “The Sleeper” followed, and incredibly another track on that same album (“Save It For Someone Who Cares”), also won a nomination for an Ivor Novello Award.

The quality of their song writing and musicianship has remained equally high for the past 10 years and now their latest album “Arrivals and Departures” (released May 2019), has hit the mark again: “…one of the best such albums that you’re likely to hear this year is by the English group The Leisure Society…Arrivals & Departures is an absorbing work” John Meagher-Independent, Ireland (20/04/19)

Take the best elements of The Feeling, Divine Comedy and Belle & Sebastian then re-arrange them and you have The Leisure Society. You’ll love them!

What a way to kick off our new season!
