This hilarious show gives us a version of The Mikado that will have you crying with laughter. The women of the Guild are doing their best, but when they can’t remember their lines, the dances are somewhat improvised, the scenery takes on a life of its own and the male minister ends up playing the part of one of the three little maids, you know that you are in for a show like you have never seen before! Can they get to the end of the show before the musical director has to leave to play golf? Will the principal characters be able to remember their lines? Will the band have too many sherries during the interval? The only thing we can be certain of is that what the Guild lack in talent, they more than make up for in enthusiasm!

Ruby Wax – Sane New World
May 10 @ 19:30 – 21:30

Ruby Wax is a much loved US born comedian, actor and writer based in the UK. Starting out as an actor at the RSC, she went on to write and perform in her own television shows and script edited the entire series of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’. More recently she has also become a mental health campaigner and gained a Masters degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University.

This show is based on her critically acclaimed book “Sane New World” which helps us understand why we sabotage our sanity with our own thinking. ‘Sane New World’ shows us how to rewire our thinking to find calm in a frenetic world and how to become the master, not the slave, of our own minds. This show is your passport to saner living. She might not be sane herself but she does a pretty good imitation.

JAH WOBBLE and Invaders of the Heart
Jun 19 @ 19:30 – 22:30

FiWobble  image high resFirst showing in 20 years for Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart. Over the past three decades or so, Jah Wobble has ploughed his own furrow as a prolific solo artist, as well as becoming a well-respected session musician, with genuine passion for Eastern and Global music.

He has worked with a diverse range of musicians, including Baaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Julianne Regan, Delores O’Riordan, Holgat Czukay, The Edge and Chaka Demus & Pliers.

The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met John Lydon and Sid Vicious at Kingsway College, London in 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’ after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar.

Lydon asked JW to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) in spring 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of ‘Metal Box’, Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL in mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career.

Wobble is joined on stage by drummer Marc Layton-Bennett and Martin Chung.

In this special acoustic performance Barbara with her pianist Nick Holland explore her catalogue of songs at an intimate level. The pair let the words and melodies take ‘centre stage’ as they perform a wonderful range of material drawing on Barbara’s folk roots, her latest exploration of the songs of Gerry Rafferty, and some of her classic hit records.

Nick joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000’s after working with Troy Donockley in the Maddy Prior Band and recording with Maddy on a couple of her seminal albums which Barbara knew and admired. He also sang on her ‘Full Circle’ album, the first to feature the style of music she now performs.
 
In 2009, Barbara with Nick started working as a ‘duo’ where she played all the guitars and piano and Nick, keyboards and vocals. Since then, they have played together in Cathedrals and Abbeys, Folk Festivals and Theatres and developed an intimate rapport with each other and the audience. They say that it’s a different experience to working with the bigger band, but just as enjoyable and gives the music ‘breathing space’.

Aly_Phil (2)HiResPhil & Aly, two of Scotland’s most acclaimed traditional musicians have been delighting audiences across Scotland with their masterful, versatile and amusing performances and leading us in the dance on BBC’s live Hogmanay show for over two decades. Oct 2013 saw the legendary folk duo receive the The Sunday Mail Great Scot Award’s ‘Lifetime Achievement” Award.

In 1986, two  members from two of Scotland’s leading bands, “The Boys of The Lough” and “Silly Wizard”, came together to work on a television series.

You could say “the rest is history”.

Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham enjoyed performing together so much that they decided to have a small tour that year. That was beginning of a remarkable working relationship and friendship that has endured and continued to thrive taking them all over the world.

They have become a national institution with their incomparable mastery of fiddle and accordion, bringing excellence in traditional music to venues across the country. Individually they pursue other ventures in performance, television and education. It is when they tour together that they truly shine with over quarter of a century of well-honed skills and hilarious banter delighting audiences everywhere.

Both Phil and Aly have ‘many other strings to their bow”

Phil, who is Artistic Director of Scottish Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, had the wonderful opportunity in 2014 to perform at the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony alongside Nicola Benedetti. He also arranged & co-produced Pumeza Matshikiza’s performance of Freedom Come All Ye.

Phil also arranged and co-produced tracks on Nicola Benedetti’s new album ‘Homecoming’. He also works with John Ashton Thomas (Hollywood film Orchestrator and composer) on orchestration and arrangements and in 2014 Phil will also be working on a new BBC series on piping.

Aly, who now holds 5 honorary Doctor of Music degrees, was honoured by BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2013 with a Lifetime Achievement Award and his now world acclaimed “Transatlantic Sessions” will be going network in the USA in 2014. Aly continues to develop that series, while also touring in the autumn each year with Ale Möller & Bruce Molsky.
