Every Monday night at the Griswold Inn at 36 Main Street, Essex, CT, USA. We start a little after 8p and go until 11+p… Sometimes we fudge the specific times, pending crowd, weather, &c. It almost always fills in quickly so if you’ve a mind to sit you might wish to consider getting there early and ordering something from the pub menu. And bring your singing voice and a sense of humour, for anything less simply will not do!

I do not know if this is the most appropriate place to post this, but I did not see a “contact us” page. I am currently taking a course in world musics and I have been asked to observe a performance and or rehearsal of a group not part of the “classical” genre of music as part of a ethnomusicology based fieldwork project. After reading about The Jovial Crew and seeing some videos on youtube, seeing that you are huge proponents of English folk music, I think that doing this assignment around your group would be both educational and downright fun! I know you guys play every Monday at the Griswold Inn, would it be possible to have a couple minutes of your time afterwards or at another time to speak with you guys about your music in addition to seeing a performance?
Oi cliff! It’s your favorite giant! Sell your CDs online or put your stuff on iTunes. Your lovely voices need to be shared!
Hey Tall Mick! Come see Cliff’s site at http://www.CliffHaslam.com and you’ll see his CDs there!
