      Jo_C_Portrait_Full

      Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield is back with a hilarious new show -A CELEBRATION OF ANGER

      Jo’s always wondered why anger is seen as such a bad thing. When life presents such irritations as vacuous celebrities, endless TV quiz shows, arrogant shop-assistants, emotionally ‘challenged’ men, drunken girlfriends who always pick the wrong partner, and a husband who continually quotes The Godfather, surely having a good rant – and a good laugh – is the only sensible reaction?

      Enjoy your anger.

       Nominated as Funniest

      Woman (LAFTA Awards) and Best Female Stand-Up (Chortle Awards),

      With a “cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue” (Times)

       Star of Radio 4’s hugely popular “Jo Caulfield’s Speakeasy”, and seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and BBC1’s The Politics Show, this is a fantastic night out, for men and women alike.

    1. Martin Simpson
      19:30 – 22:00

      Simpson High ResThere is no doubt that after 35 years as a professional musician Martin is, right now, better than ever. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. There is no-one who has more successfully combined the diverse elements of British, Afro-American and old-timey music than Simpson. His 15 years living in the US were well spent. In addition his own songwriting has produced some real gems, from the truck-stop epic, “Love Never Dies” to the profoundly moving “Never Any Good” and “One Day”. His career includes collaborations on stage and record with June Tabor, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jackson Browne, Danny Thompson, Danú, Martin Carthy, Cara Dillon, David Lindley, Roy Bailey, Martin Taylor, David Hidalgo, Steve Miller, Dick Gaughan and many more.

      Martin has been nominated an astounding 29 times in the eleven years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – more than any other performer – with 11 consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year, which he has won twice. 2008 saw an incredible 5 nominations for “Prodigal Son’ and 2 wins, whilst in 2010 he had an unprecedented 6 nominations for his CD, “True Stories” and a win for Best Traditional Track, “Sir Patrick Spens”. Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual and a guitarist of immense subtlety.

      Laura McGhee

      After two years of touring in the States, Laura McGhee is back in Dundee for a special acoustic performance at the Gardyne. Laura’s last show in Dundee was co-billed with Nicola Benedetti in the 2011 Discovery concert with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra at the Caird Hall, where she performed an orchestral arrangement of her piece on Scottish history “The Arbroath Suite”. Now she is going acoustic, with a stripped down intimate performance of her own material.

      Laura’s programme will feature career highlights and includes songs from her brand new album How Leaving Feels, a personal journey of her move across the pond to Nashville from Monifieth. The show opens with a fiery fiddle tune from the Shetlands and moves into a melancholy self-penned air.

      The show consists of two acts, both of which include her  fiddle compositions interspersed with original songs, and portray a hybrid of Celtic/Country  styles. The second act includes a Robert Burns tribute of contemporary arrangements of some of his best loved work. The show will feature multi-instrumentalist  Johnny Cameron from the famous Glasgow studio Riverside.
