This week, the entertainer is back at the folk club's regular spot, now at The Red Lion in Cheddleton.

He will be performing at the Folk At The Lion today(Thursday, December 12) alongside regulars Herbs and Leekies.

Dave Rhead, organiser of the Folk at the Lion and a member of the Herbs and Leekies, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Jolly Jock back for our 'Christmas Do'.

"Jock plays all over the country and was recently a guest at Leek's first Blues and Americana Festival.

"He plays instruments as diverse as trombone and ukelele amd his humerous style is unique."

For tomorrow evening's folk slot in Cheddleton, Herbs and Leekies will be presenting a set of folk carols and other guests may be putting in a Christmas appearance.

Dave added: "With the added bonus of a free mince pie, we hope to start Christmas off with a bang – or perhaps with more of a pop!"

Herbs and Leekies, which performs a range of folk and jazz music, is made up of Dave Rhead, Sam Rhead, Paul Davies, Kath Davies plus Robbie Sherratt.

Doors will open for Folk at the Lion at 8pm for an 8.30pm start. Admission will be £5 on the door.
