Herga at The Castle is a folk and acoustic music evening, with roots going back to 1963. We meet on Monday nights at The Castle – a Fuller’s public house atop old Harrow on the Hill with it’s panoramic views across London.

What’s on this month and next month?

Monday 11 November 2019   Guest Night.  Dick Miles…

…has been singing and playing
music since he was 13. His special love and interest
is traditional music and the concertina. He lived for
many years in Suffolk, East Anglia and some of
his favorite songs are based on the superb tra-
ditional tales of this region. Now  living in
the South-West of Ireland, Dick is incorporating,
more and more of  the local traditional music style
into his own repertoire.
