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.
BOWJANGLES EXCALIBOW This hyperactive all-singing, all-strumming, all-dancing, all-comedy-cabaret-varietytheatrical string quartet explores the mystical, mythical world of fairy-tales, folklore and legends. Superb classical musicians with a remarkable gift for groan-worthy laughs and physical comedy, here they swashbuckle their way through musical sketches of monsters, ancient gods, historical figures and fantasy characters, all whilst playing strings flawlessly. Truly original entertainment and a joy to watch.

THE CARRIVICK SISTERS IN CONCERT BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award finalists 2010. 'Superb' (BBC Radio 2) uptempo pickin' and fiddlin' from the hugely talented Devonian twins Laura and Charlotte Carrivick, one of the UK's top young American bluegrass and old-time music acts. With swapped lead vocals, tight sibling harmonies, multi-instrumental virtuosity (fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and dobro) and finely crafted songs, this is a 'simply breathtaking' (Americana UK) slab of good-time listening.
‘The Carrivick Sisters are pick of the crop.’ The Telegraph ★★★★★ Maverick Magazine ★★★★ Q Magazine
THE FB POCKET ORCHESTRA IN CONCERT A richly enjoyable night of hot jazz, blues, ragtime and popular dances that hint at jazz age 1920s and swing era 1930s; New Orleans, tea dances, Paris Cafés, and sophisticated, smoky nightclubs. Three superbly talented musicians splice quality crooning, a bewildering variety of instruments, a delightful period charm, and a flirtatious twinkle in the eye (on the more risqué material) into a laid-back acoustic treat.
‘Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago. The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured beautifully.’ Jazz FM
TIM KLIPHUIS TRIO GOES GRAPPELLI
DON KIPPER IN CONCERT
This award-winning Dutch jazz violinist is seen by many as the inheritor of jazz violin legend Stéphane Grappelli's crown. Here, his trio, now in their 11th year, bring their compelling interplay to Grappelli's highenergy gypsy swing and jazzed-up classical tunes.
This joyful, multi-lingual, multi award-winning seven-piece ensemble are remarkable young exponents of Jewish klezmer and traditional styles from Greece, Turkey and the Balkans, reflecting the cultural diversity and living traditions of their North East London home. Weaving virtuosic instrumentation, Dunja Botic's sumptuous and 'spectacular' (BBC Radio 3) vocals, and unbridled musical passion, their uptempo good-time shows are exquisitely freewheeling.
‘Playfully inventive and technically brilliant.’ The Scotsman
‘The music of Grappelli is alive and well in the hands of Tim Kliphuis and his musicians.’ Nigel Kennedy

MARK BILLINGHAM & MY DARLING CLEMENTINE THE OTHER HALF
THE GRAHAMS IN CONCERT This dynamic Nashville-based husband and wife Americana duo surely 'rattle the hocks', crafting real emotive, shiver-up-the-spineinducing songs – drawn from their hard travelling expeditions along the Mississippi's Great River Road and riding the old American railroad. Passionate, joyful, harmonious and captivating.
‘Americana doesn't come much better.’ Acoustic Magazine ★★★★★
‘Alyssa has a great voice, crystal clear, full of fire and passion, perfectly complimented by Doug on dobro and vocals.’
An inspired collaboration between the leading lights of crime fiction and country music, an original story written and read by best-selling crime writer Mark Billingham is soundtracked by the powerful and poignant songs of internationally-acclaimed Americana duo My Darling Clementine. Part gig, part play, part storytelling, for one night only, be transported to downtown Memphis, awash with heart-on-sleeve country romanticism and hard-boiled crime.
ALMA IN CONCERT Alma brings together the vibrant sound of two of the finest fiddlers on the English folk scene, the award winning John Dipper and Emily Askew, with the sensitive driving guitar of Adrian Lever. Exploring the rich diversity of the English, European and Asian fiddle traditions, this distinctive and magnificent instrumental virtuosity is a joy to listen to.
‘Ethereal and seductive... their repertoire continually springs surprises. The playing is spry, intelligent and joyous.’ Sunday Times
‘A convincing world of barflies, peeling paint and characters on bar stools with very dark secrets.’
‘John Dipper is one of England's most sophisticated fiddlers… always a delight!’

OLD HAT JAZZ BAND IN CONCERT A group of some of the finest young musical talents Britain has to offer, Old Hat Jazz Band brings huge amounts of style and panache to a treasure trove of quintessential 1920s and '30s jazz classics and 'irresistibly catchy ' (All About Jazz) original tunes. Old jazz remade with real verve.
‘A phenomenal sound.’ BBC Radio 3
‘Ridiculously happy making music.’
A rousing, thought-provoking immersive play of two young ladies travelling the country hosting tea dances for RAF fighter pilots during World War II, and of their real purpose; sending the men off to fight having experienced all of life's pleasures ('nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more'). Following a fascinating but little known real-life story, this spirited show weaves together brilliant drama, gentle innuendo, the odd wartime song and a little dancing.
BBC Proms ★★★★ ★★★★
‘Tunes full of life, energy and nuanced performance… hugely enjoyable.’
MINIMA: SILENT FILM & LIVE MUSIC THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) (PG) Spellbinding live music accompaniment turns this fast-moving, 'ultra-fantastic melodrama' (New York Times) – one of the great classics of American silent film – into an atmospheric and gripping experience. 'Acclaimed soundscapers' (Time Out) Minima are one of the leading bands in Europe accompanying silent film: 'Minima sound unmistakably modern, but capture the film's disturbing mood perfectly ' (The Telegraph).

CORY SEZNEC BAND NEW MUSIC FROM THE OLD
NINEBARROW IN CONCERT
A soulful, freewheeling set by the Franco-American Cory Seznec – formerly of much praised world-roots outfit the Groanbox Boys – encapsulates the musician's eclectic taste and adventurous approach to global styles. The music is joyous, a vibrant mix of American roots, country and jazz with a twist of African blues, with Cory switching constantly between the raw and stomping and the charmingly sophisticated, interspersed with musical anecdotes of the songs' origins.
BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Horizon Award nominees 2017.
‘A virtuoso musician and gifted songsmith doing what comes naturally. Ry Cooder comparisons are most apposite.’ fRoots Magazine ★★★★ Songlines Magazine ★★★★ The Guardian
This multi-award-winning Dorsetshire folk duo combines exquisite, pitch-perfect vocal harmonies, captivating musicality, charismatic stage patter and genuine charm to deliver beautifully crafted traditional and original songs steeped in the darker side of the English landscape, folklore and history. Amid ringing endorsements from luminaries like Seth Lakeman and Kate Rusby, Ninebarrow are a recognised force on the folk scene. The Everly Brothers of British folk. ★★★★★

SPILTMILK DANCE THE LITTLE LOVE CABARET
A thoughtful, compelling and charming portrayal of 60 years of village life seen through the eyes of one village resident, from youth to the fight to stay in her home in old age. A thoroughly engaging performance by an absolutely fantastic 'new writing' company.
Stupendously mad fun, three dancers – with the odd special guest adding pizzazz – romp through a quick-fire set of song, dance and comedy sketches inspired by real-life love stories gathered from contributors aged 2 – 92 across the UK. Clever, slick and hilarious, this all-singing, all-dancing cabaret extravaganza is a heartwarming love-letter to love; romantical, confessional, obsessional, fantastical. A night to remember.
‘One of British theatre's unsung treasures… superb touring shows.’ The Guardian
‘A life-affirming piece of theatre that genuinely embraces the audience.’
TRAVELLING BY TUBA FAREWELL TOUR This multi-instrument extravaganza by one of the UK's most successful classical music duos mixes wonderful musicianship, sheer silliness and cheeky audience rapport in a set packed full of quirky musical gems ranging from classical to jazz.

ALBANY THEATRE THE WINDOW
BADAPPLE THEATRE AMY JOHNSON
A compelling and beautifully constructed First World War drama, of a young Coventry soldier and his harrowing experiences of one of the British Army's most notoriously unsuccessful and bloody offensives.
With brilliant storytelling – funny, poignant and compelling – this is an enthralling portrait of Hull's 'First Lady of the Air', Amy Johnson, one of the world's most famous aviators who in 1930 became the first woman to fly solo between Britain and Australia. Two jovial WAF* girls celebrate Amy's inspirational life, pioneering career and wartime heroism, and chronicle her final journey and mysterious disappearance without trace over the Thames Estuary.
Inspired by his richly detailed family history, playwright Paul Nolan's vivid and deeply affecting true story of his great uncle, James O'Neil, resonates with pity and passion. A powerful and moving tribute to commemorate the centenary of the armistice of 1918.
Ages: 10+ * Women in the Air Force (WAF).

Join jittery Ratty, amiable Mole, bluff Badger and swaggering Toad on their marvellous adventures. With fantastic homespun fabric puppetry and completely charming original music, the show generates non-stop energy and high good humour from its two-strong cast, wowing audiences.

THIRD PARTY PRODUCTIONS THE SAGAS OF NOGGIN THE NOG
SHEESHAM AND LOTUS & ‘SON IN CONCERT
Combining lovely comic action, fabulous puppets, retro charm, live music and original film, four of the least gruff Vikings you'll ever meet capture the spirit and humour of Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate's (The Clangers, Bagpuss) much loved 1960's television series. Hilarious, sweet family fun: silly Vikings, journeys of adventure, dastardly deeds, fearsome dragons, big green birds, buttered toast*.
Using a host of vintage instruments, this show-stopping Canadian trio serves up riotous, high stepping, sepiatinted old-timey string-band music with roots in the vaudeville and juke joints of the American South. Oozing authenticity and dynamism this is hugely entertaining, and all in all a lovely, must-see treat. Truly they are the new kings of old-time.
‘An expertly acted, beautifully realised stage play with the warm charm of a bedtime story.’
‘A wondrous set from old-time stylists… a lovely, inspiring and slightly manic treat.’

THE FOUNDRY GROUP THE MINISTRY OF BISCUITS
'Macy Gray meets Nick Drake' (The Observer). Much championed by guitarist John Etheridge, singersongwriter Kit Holmes is a rising star of the acoustic music scene, her trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing having wowed audiences across the UK. Here, Kit is joined by guitarist Al Greenwood for an enthralling, infectious performance of her bluesdriven roots (with a soul sensibility). Full of warmth and joie de vivre, and mixing dazzling songs with delightful instrumentals, this is an absolute delight.
London, 1948, and The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land, prohibiting fancy biscuits everywhere and sparking confectionery rebellion. Drawing inspiration from 40's British Light Music, Orwell's dystopian classic 1984 and the great, quintessentially British, Ealing comedy capers, this satirical musical fantasy – co-written by Philip Reeve, the hugely popular, award-winning children's author of Mortal Engines, and featuring David Mounfield (Mel Giedroyc's costar on the BBC Radio 4 sketch show Rum Bunch) – is an absolutely ripping wheeze.
