Trish Mclean is a professional, classically trained musician, she is noted for her distinctive voice, beautiful harmonies and thought provoking songs. A regular at her local Guisborough Folk Club, Trish has been influenced by the songs of Joan Baez and Annie Haslam and we welcome her to our club once more.


  Ian and Trevor are two regular performers at The Candlelite club and have recently teamed up to produce some lovely songs and harmonies which are very popular with audiences. The different styles  and characters blend very well to produce a memorable combination for your enjoyment.



Our resident club band was recently out on the streets of Darlington again busking for charity.

       Great North Road  has been playing in the outside market area over several weekends to raise money for the Butterwick Hospice and have now raised over £2900!

The Copper Beech is situated in the south of Darlington towards the lower end of Neasham Road just before the Geneva Road roundabout if travelling from the town centre. Approaching from out of town it is preferable to take the Darlington Football stadium turn off from the A66 southern ringroad, under the low bridge and just past the first roundabout on the left. There is a large Copper Beech tree just outside!!. Post code for sat navs is DL1 4DH. more information and maps will appear in the "Contact Us "page.
