CHRISTINE TOBIN… a retrospective journey

Multi award-winning artist, Christine Tobin is hailed as an exceptional singer-songwriter and one of the great interpreters of modern popular song. She released her 10th album this year and her programme tonight makes a retrospective journey, plucking favourite songs from her back catalogue to her latest recordings. Sumptuous Tobin originals, settings of WB Yeats poems, inspired versions of Leonard Cohen, Carole King and more all delivered by the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe and 2014 Parliamentary Jazz award winner and her superb band.
Christine’s band will be Kate Shortt cello, Liam noble piano, Phil Robson guitar, Dave Whitford double bass and the sensational Cuban drummer Ernesto Simpson.

“Gorgeous, affecting and deeply human”  The Guardian **** 

“..Christine Tobin really transcends glib genre-fication. Her expressive range acknowledges finely acquired folk, jazz and 20th-century classical influences, which already sets her apart. And everything is shot through with an unmistakable refinement, free-spirited earthiness and giddy romanticism, this singer-songwriter is in a field of one”.  MOJO ****

Songs of WW1

In the last of a very successful series of talks that has run for over two decades, Kevin will be marking the WW1 centenary by playing and talking about some of the music and songs that come to mind when we in the second decade of the 21st century turn our thoughts to what was happening in the 2nd decade of the 20th century.

My Musical Life

Speaker: Ray Witham

In the past Ray has spoken eloquently, and with insight, about the lives and works of some of the great popular musical performers of yesteryear. This time, we have prevailed upon him to again put aside his modesty and repeat a talk he gave in February about his own varied experiences a drummer. We have done this because people who, for one reason or another, could not attend the February talk have requested it.

The Twentieth Century in Folk-Song Part 2

Speaker: Neil Mason

 

This second part of the Twentieth Century in Folk-Song will continue through the Twentieth Century from the 1970s to the 1990s.  This part will focus on ordinary British people affected by great social changes.  From a night out in a small Somerset town to a re-imagining of classic folk-songs for the 1990s this talk will continue the sweep of history set to music.  The talk will conclude by trying to put folk music in the 20th Century in context and by looking to the future.

The Twentieth Century in Folk-Song

Speaker: Neil Mason

“There is an old adage among historians: “What was the impact of the Napoleonic

Wars? It’s too early to tell.”

This music talk will carry you through the Twentieth Century as seen in folk-song by

people who took part in the momentous events, or lived their lives in ways through a

Century of climatic change. From a march written as a lament for the fallen in the

Battle of the Somme to re-imagining of classic folk-songs for the 1990s this talk will

seek to set the sweep of history to music”.

I have been very lucky that in my lifetime I have become acquainted with –and indeed occasionally friends with – a number of people whose single-minded  devotion to making music as best they can has commanded my profound respect and admiration.” (Kevin Cryan).

 In his audio-illustrated talk, Kevin will examine the musical work of a few of his friends and acquaintances, and, along the way, address the question of why some of the artists are better known than others.
