Cliff and the boys recording (5 April 2018) with David Mcomber for voiceover songs for the movie-in-production “Blow The Man Down” (release 2019?).
The season is upon us… This Sunday the 11th we’ll be at Cafe Nine in New Haven during their “Parade Day” which is to say their St-Patrick’s Day parade. We’ll be playing from 3 – 6p… A great way to see us closer to your home if you travel from that direction!
THEN we will be at the Gris on Saturday the 17th! Dinner and the show will be in the Covered Bridge Room from 8:30 to midnight. Make your reservations now! 860.767.1776
Thank you all for coming down and supporting us!

While Cliff has been performing for FAR longer than that, he has been playing the Griswold Inn for 45 years! A steady gig for a folk performer is the envy of all of us in this genre, but that long! We, the Jovial Crew, are lucky and grateful to have been a large part of this!

Cliff Haslam – 45 Years at the Gris
A man of music, a man of good cheer,
Every Monday night at the Gris.
Year after year in The Tap Room,
Singing songs of the sea…He’s the best there is.
From across The Pond he did travel,
Leaving The Old Country far behind.
A path-way of work, home, and music.
Everything he does is sincere and kind.
The beat goes on in harmony
At the Gris or wherever he may be.
A friend to all who know him.
Cliff, you are a special friend to Joyce and me.
