Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith


This event has been and gone.

The Toy Museum Folk Club is Brighton's newest traditional folk night, bringing the very best acts to the unique setting of Brighton Toy and Model Museum. Come and watch intimate acoustic sets from the finest folk talents, and explore the train sets, model planes and traditional children's toys on display in the museum.

Returning to the Toy Museum Folk Club after a sold out gig during our 2018 debut season, Jimmy and Sid are one of the most engaging duos in folk music right now. After a winter sojourn that saw them release a seasonal album with Lady Maisery, 2020 sees them back at the Toy Museum as a pair - as vibrant and talented a folk act as anyone in Britain today.

For an evening of sublime folk pairings, our support comes from locally-based brothers Ben & Alfie. Originally from the South West of England, Ben & Alfie have brought their evocative folk music to Brighton and made an instant impact that we couldn't ignore. A pair to watch, supporting a pair that aren't to be missed!


Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith

Jimmy & Sid marry the ancient with the modern, through superb multi-instrumentalist folk. Harnessing the tradition and simplicity of beautifully rendered folk music, the duo pair their sung storytelling with a deep integrity and sincerity that stems from their passion for the social themes within the music. There is a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice as well as the occasional love song. Their shows manage to be both hard-hitting and uplifting, securing their reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.
