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. ★★★★ The Telegraph

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.

Truly original entertainment and a joy to watch.

A special company with a stellar reputation for touring deaf inclusive work for small children, Red Earth here brings real joie de vivre to a gloriously mischievous new version of the age-old tale of Snow White. Played with enormous energy, great good humour and loads of visual flair, and with the clever use of inventive props, puppets, costumes and choreography, this delightful show sparks the imagination of adults and children alike.

BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award finalists 2010.

‘Stunning… this unique take on a classic will keep children compelled.’

'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.

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.




One of the most spirited Jewish klezmer dance and eastern European gypsy folkjazz bands around, this remarkable six-piece has quickly consolidated its rising star status with a series of unforgettable festival gigs. Joyous, infectious, distinctive and proof positive that you don't need to travel to hear great global music.

Hovering at the boundary between dance and theatre, Point of Echoes blends the whimsical tones of a Wes Anderson movie with the uncanny dread of The Twilight Zone. This affecting nautical tale explores how the relationship between two keepers at an isolated lighthouse runs aground when a mysterious figure enters their lives. Renowned international choreographer Ben Wright creates the first commission for the Rural Touring Dance Initiative, an intimate new dance-theatre work for community halls.

This dynamic Nashville-based husband and wife Americana duo surely 'rattle the hocks', crafting real emotive, shiver-upthe-spine-inducing 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.

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.’ BBC Proms

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).


‘Tunes full of life, energy and nuanced performance… hugely enjoyable.’

‘A superbly sinister live score.’

GREENMATTHEWS THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS: A FOLK OPERA Kenneth Grahame's well-loved and timeless tale is brought to vibrant life exclusively through song, with evocative new lyrics set to traditional English folk melodies. A show of real charm and wistful nostalgia, Chris Green, Sophie Matthews and special guests Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, vividly chronicle the adventures of Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad across the river and in to the dark and dangerous Wild Wood. The perfect antidote to winter – summery, vivacious, sparkling and full of life.

NEW PERSPECTIVES FINDING NANA This magical autobiographical one-woman show – from award winning writer Jane Upton – charts halcyon childhood summers in a seaside hotel, the unconditional love between a granddaughter and her Nana, and the desperate need to capture memories before they are lost. Flitting between the past and present, childhood and old age, this is a brave and inspirational tale of love and loss to make you smile and make you sad. Just brilliant.

PENTABUS THEATRE HERE I BELONG 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.

BADAPPLE THEATRE AMY JOHNSON 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. Set against a 2/3 size replica Gipsy Moth bi-plane, this exhilarating bioplay takes off as entertainment.

THE BUSQUITOS WICKY WACKY WOO This brilliant Dutch streetband showcases its energetic, highly eccentric, and very catchy trad-influenced comedic-jazz, jumping into the crowd at every opportunity, kidnapping audience members, staging mock weddings. Dazzlingly funny, they bring a smile to everyone's face.

‘Brilliant Dutch musicians who deliver a fast-changing variety of music styles.’ Jazz Journal

THE MILE ROSES WHISKY FIRESIDE (AND OTHER SONGS FROM THE ROAD) A fantastic collaboration of three respected solo singersongwriters: Kate Bramley (Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies), Simon Haworth, and the honey-voiced Edwina Hayes, the latter numbering Michael Parkinson and Nanci Griffith among her fans.

MINIMA: SILENT FILM & LIVE MUSIC NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY OF HORROR (1922) (PG) A marriage made in heaven (or perhaps hell): one of the leading bands in Europe accompanying silent-era film, Minima's spine-tingling live music captures the eerie, Gothic feel of FW Murnau's horror classic perfectly. The first screen version of Bram Stoker's Dracula – though all names were changed because the adaptation was unauthorised – much legend surrounds it, with Max Schreck's unearthly performance so convincing as to lead to the belief that he was a genuine vampire.



BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Musician of the Year nominee 2016.

Three brilliant fiddle players bring the rich and distinctive folk traditions of their native Norway, Sweden and Shetland alive in a unique and invigorating collaboration. Interspersing outstanding musicianship with some first class craic, this is a shimmering display of endlessly varied, powerful and beautiful music. Pure fiddle doesn't get much better than this.

Member of the award-winning Urban Folk Quartet, Dan Walsh is an astounding banjo player – 'the real deal, a demon picker' (Uncut Magazine) – as well as a winning songwriter, wonderful singer and superb guitarist.

Financial Times

This intimate and truly memorable live show is a delightful mix of British, Irish and American folk music – with forays into Indian music, jazz and blues – performed with a unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo, and with a healthy dose of lively humour and personal stories, particularly of the inspirations behind some of the songs and tunes.

THE FOUNDRY GROUP THE MINISTRY OF BISCUITS 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.
