WORRY DOLLS IN CONCERT Lovely, atmospheric Americana from the 'brilliantly quirky' (Huffington Post) talents of multi-instrumentalists Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones, with sassy songwriting, a fabulous onstage chemistry and a gorgeous vocal harmony driven sound. Having fallen under the spell of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and motivated by players like Earl Scruggs and the Dixie Chicks, this compelling duo blends Zoe's fleet banjo picking and warm, country tones with Rosie's grittier vocals and rhythmic guitar on nostalgic songs of longing hearts and leaving trains. ★★★★

‘Worry Dolls combine a great sensibility of American Country music with their own English folk influences to create a warm and infectious sound.’

GINNY DAVIS PRODUCTIONS UPDOWNSIZING

WENDY KIRKLAND QUARTET PIANO DIVAS

The kids have flown the nest so it's time to downsize. Contracts are about to be exchanged and packing is underway. Nothing can go wrong. But storm clouds gather overhead. And then the doorbell rings. Set in a 1990's kitchen extension with a boiling kettle as companion, this is a warm, compassionate, witty, sad and brilliantly executed observational comedy capturing the essence of middle-class family life.

One of the great unsung heroines of British jazz, Chesterfield-based Wendy Kirkland presents her critically acclaimed tribute to female jazz pianist-singers like herself; fresh arrangements of songs made famous by wonderful jazzwomen from Nina Simone, Eliane Elias and Shirley Horn to Tania Maria and Dena DeRose.

The award-winning Ginny Davis is on impressive and endearing form in this one-woman tour de force, vividly telling the story with a lot of humour and not a little refreshing cynicism.

A huge touring hit, this is a varied and vastly entertaining evening of jazz song brought to new life by Wendy's highly accomplished pianism and warm, eloquent voice – likened to Blossom Dearie with hints of Diana Krall – and the superb musicianship of her top-class band.

Bravely accurate, touching and laugh out loud funny.

‘Mellow and stylish.’

Janis Barlow is the book volunteer for the local community library – since the cuts, since she was 'retired' from the hair salon. She has tried different ways to keep herself busy (synchronised swimming, meditation) but to little avail. So, she grabs her rollers, her crystals and her basket of books and starts out on her quest to transform the lives in her community, popping round the county in her Smart car delivering to people who can't get to the library. And slowly she starts to realise that it is she who is lonely, and that doing good does you good too. A hilarious new comedydrama with a heart of gold looking rural isolation right in the eye, leaving audiences in tears of joy and sadness.

MÁIRE NÍ CHATHASAIGH & CHRIS NEWMAN IN CONCERT When it comes to virtuoso work on the harp the Irish player Máire Ní Chathasaigh is in a class of her own. Matched against the thrilling guitar of Chris Newman, 'one of the UK's greatest guitarists' (BBC Radio 2), they are a 'truly electrifying combination' (The Stage). Here they blend gorgeous traditional Celtic music, sizzling Irish reels, hot jazz improvisation, bluegrass and baroque into a spellbinding musical treat. And with masterly stagecraft and introductions simultaneously informative and hilarious, this is a remarkable and genuinely uplifting show.

SUNJAY IN CONCERT

GONZO MOOSE THEATRE ONCE UPON A TIME...

BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award nominee 2012.

Look on with wonder as three daring actors flit between countless colourful characters during 90 minutes of magical mayhem. With slapstick silliness, daft one-liners and bizarre puppetry, this critically acclaimed anarchic comedytheatre company takes the life story of the Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and turns it on its head.

British Blues Awards nominee 2014. With talents way beyond his years, Derby-born blues-folk troubadour Sunjay has been hailed for his exquisite and seemingly effortless guitar mastery and graceful bass voice, with a mature stage presence and captivating anecdotes. Superb twenty-first century 'new generation' blues music.

‘One of the best young pickers and singers around.’ BBC Radio 2 Folk Show

‘Dazzling virtuosity... delightful.’

‘Deft finger picking and sonorous vocals.’

★★★★ The Scotsman Ages: 10+

On the eve of publishing the final volume of what will become the greatest collection of fairy tales the world has ever seen an old foe lets it be known that he intends to collect on an old debt. To save her beloved brothers their little sister Lotte must travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront the evil Rumplestiltskin.

‘An exuberant mash-up of improvisation, physical theatre, slapstick and satire.’

NICHOLAS COLLETT & GAVIN ROBERTSON DONE TO DEATH, BY JOVE The spectres of Richard Hannay, Miss Marple and Bergerac converge in this clever and properly funny spoof homage to the Great British Detective tradition. The chaotic plot centres on a six-actor crime stage play made tricky to tell, as with four of the cast stuck in a van by the side of the M6, theatrical knights Gavin Robertson and Nicholas Collett must gamely play all the roles. Stuffed to the rafters with verbal and physical humour and dollops of unashamed silliness, this is a thrillingly inventive comedy-drama. It's not a new idea, it's not a new plot, it's been 'done to death, by jove', but not like this.

‘Simply wonderful... Robertson and Collett are a powerful pair onstage.’ Adelaide Artbeat

BADAPPLE THEATRE THE FROZEN ROMAN

TELL TALE TUSK IN CONCERT

They came, they saw, they conquered, they went away again. Or did they?

This intriguing and distinctive all-female contemporary folk ensemble plays a spellbinding (and award-winning) set reimagining folktales old and giving light to folksong new, weaving immaculate and virtuosic harmony vocals with exquisite violin and cello work. A slick, cheerfully eclectic set of thrilling acoustic folk, from gently charming ballads to foot-stomping rockers.

A clandestine meeting at the Phoenix pub gets heated, as the hapless villagers rack their brains for new ways to fight a looming housing development that threatens village life as they know it. Might the discovery of an ancient Roman burial ground throw them a lifeline? And are things quite what they seem? Find out as the situation goes 'ballisticus maximus' in no little time. A brand-new comedy by Kate Bramley about communities old and new, with original music by the 'singular talent ' (BBC Music) that is the brilliant BBC Folk Awards multi-nominee Jez Lowe.

‘Full of creativity, lyricism, irony, and personality.’ Haizetara International Street Music Festival (Spain)

‘Bring a fresh twist to traditional music from far and wide.’ The List

Ages: 10+ Ages: 10+

THE BLACK FEATHERS IN CONCERT Critically acclaimed husband and wife duo Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler are undeniable talents – two gorgeous, perfectly paired voices, one outstanding guitar and great self-penned songs. Likened to the classic pairing of Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, they play bold, striking, harmony-fuelled Americana music (with an English folk sensibility). Their intimate performances positively sparkle with energy and joy, radiant onstage chemistry, disarming humour, powerful tunes and sumptuous harmonies, drawing the listener in.

‘The Black Feathers are acoustic, but with enough power and force to drive a sledgehammer.’ fRoots Magazine ★★★★

GARLIC THEATRE EGGS ON LEGS 'Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.' Dr Seuss Inspired by the original quirk merchant Dr Seuss, Garlic Theatre has cooked up an eggcentric family puppet show all about 'Eggs on Legs'. These aren't your common or garden poultry products, however; they've leapt from the frying pan into a magical world where an enormous egg has been blown into their tree. What secrets are hidden inside, and can they save it from the jaws of a slithery snake? Scrambling together rib-tickling tunes and funny and inspiring puppets with gentle clowning and side-splitting silliness, Garlic Theatre conjures a warmhearted, poetic story which would crack even the hardest of shells.

‘A trademark combo of adorable puppets, jokes and audience participation.’ Time Out

RSVP BHANGRA IN CONCERT

ODDBODIES KING LEAR

Get ready to party Punjabistyle. Brit-Bhangra greats from Bristol, RSVP's more intimate, 'small-room' adaptation of the high-energy sound of Asian Britain still retains all its renowned vibrancy and flamboyant showmanship.

'Nothing will come of nothing.'

From humble beginnings as the music and dance of poor farmers celebrating the annual harvest, Bhangra has taken on its own British identity. RSVP mesh traditional Punjabi songs and drumming with electric guitar, energising dance and frontman Dildar Singh's honeydrenched vocals, bringing audiences to their feet regardless of age or ability. A highly 'infectious' (The List), hugely enjoyable and infinitely memorable evening. Simply tons of fun.

‘One of the hottest bands on the Bhangra scene.’ Asian Times

Ages: 3-8

Ages: 7+

Part of the Live & Local Launchpad CYP programme (firing the imagination of children and young people).

Enter the hugely entertaining actor Paul Morel, dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, who proceeds to deliver the monstrous trajectory of Lear's demise from the point of view of his long suffering and ever-loyal fool. The story of an arrogant ruler terrified of death and the waning of his powers, driven to madness by age, infirmity and filial disobedience, here becomes a super-dark comedy. Inventive, irreverent, highly accessible and hilarious, this is about as far away from 'trad and bad' as you can get, and it's brilliant.

BONFIRE RADICALS IN CONCERT

THE MECHANICALS BAND IN CONCERT

BADAPPLE THEATRE THE SNOW DANCER

One of the most exciting and eclectic groups on the folk/world scene, the Bonfire Radicals translate a wide variety of influences – from gorgeous medieval and Celtic folk to dynamic eastern European jazz-swing to punchy world-beats, and all points in between – into a distinctive and quite staggeringly special sound.

In this delightful gem of a concert, The Mechanicals Band, led by the exceptional song-smith Wes Finch, and galvanised by their love of literature, draw on the words of Shakespeare, WB Yeats, William Blake, Phillip Larkin, John Masefield and more for their witty, erudite, and achingly lovely songs.

Expect festive antics aplenty with this comic tale of a group of creatures who are trying to hibernate but keep waking up because the weather is just too warm. Something must be done. And thus, our tired and grumpy heroes travel the seas to seek the help of the mysterious Snow Dancer, the only person who might be able to make it snow (and save the day).

Armed with emotive vocals, richly melodic classical recorders and woodwind, soaring fiddle and a tight, rocking rhythm section, and ranging from delicate unaccompanied singing to pyrotechnic folk-rock, theirs is a boldly original and high-spirited, at times gloriously chaotic, live stage show. ★★★★

‘Raucous and eclectic, sheer merriment… guaranteed to leave you smiling from ear to ear.’ Songlines Magazine Ages: 6+

With a blast of originality and fantastic energy, they combine bittersweet acoustic ballads, subtle folk-classical music, jazz, chanson and enchanting poetry recitation into a live show of infectious goodwill and sense of occasion.

‘A welcome and singular addition to the list of newbloods reinvigorating British folk music.’

Championed by jazz-pop star Jamie Cullum, sassy doublebass playing singer Kel Elliott is justly acclaimed for her rich and powerful voice and uplifting, genre-leaping songs, backed by impressive and unlikely instrumentation. A passionate songwriter, most recently she has been gathering stories and personal recollections from historic and reminiscence projects to transform into vivid and inventive story-songs. Here, she brings to light the very best; quirky, fascinating, soulful and wonderful.

‘Brilliant.’

‘Rural magic.’

NEW PERSPECTIVES & UNICORN THEATRE THE WOLF, THE DUCK & THE MOUSE Calling all families; join Mouse, Duck and Wolf for a delightful tale of animal antics drawn from the beloved picture book by Mac Barnett and John Klassen, a modern fairytale about finding joy and friendship in the darkest and most unusual of places. 'Oh woe' says Mouse. Mouse and Duck have been gobbled up whole by Wolf and are now making the best of things in his belly. They soon become firm friends, but outside in the forest Wolf is being hunted by a nasty human. Can the two hatch a plan to save their new home from the hunter's rifle? New Perspectives and Unicorn Theatre – the UK's leading theatre for young audiences – bring this brilliantly subversive book to life with warmth, wit and a prescient environmental message. Ages: 3-7 Part of the Live & Local Launchpad CYP programme (firing the imagination of children and young people).

KATHRYN ROBERTS & SEAN LAKEMAN IN CONCERT BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Duo winners 2013 and 2016. Long established as one of the UK folk scene's most rewardingly enduring partnerships, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman are 'songwriters par excellence' (fRoots Magazine), their music tuneful, intelligent and soulful. Here, Kathryn's powerful voice is matched against Sean's driving guitar on a set of impressive modern folk songs and heartfelt traditional numbers, switching from thoughtful ballads to stomping acoustic rock. Impressive and entertaining.
