One minute you know who you are. The next, your mind’s a blank slate…

The lives of an eclectic community living in abandoned shipping containers are thrown upside down when a mysterious man arrives. With no memory of his name or former life, they begin to help  him  to find his feet. Whilst a daily serving of soup from a local charity worker begins to nourish his heart and soul, the surprise rediscovery of his past puts his new life in jeopardy.

Featuring a soundtrack from songs of praise to sultry jazz, this part-melancholic love story, part-deliciously deadpan comedy takes you on one man’s extraordinary journey from anonymity to unexpected salvation.

Following on from the success of Lars Von Trier’s The Boss of it All (Terrific! The Guardian), Jack McNamara cleverly adapts this Cannes Grand Prix award-winning film comedy by Aki  Kaurismäki, one of Finland’s greatest modern storytellers.

A delicious blend of hilarity and heart break” Rolling Stone on Kaurismäki’s film

With sweet vocals soaring over shimmering strings, this impressively good string quartet weaves together folk roots and classical influences to realise music that is as imaginative as it is beautiful.

Drawing together musicians from Ashley Hutching’s Rainbow Chasers and The Old Dance School to spine-tingling effect, and with a diverse set of old songs and originals, this is an intimate and mesmerising evening of folk music.

Helen Lancaster and Ruth Angell join friends Emma Capp and Charlie Heys to create a unique blend of intricate sounds from fiddles, viola, cello, guitar, harmonium and vocals, playing original self-penned music with traditional and classical influences. Helen (The Fair Rain) and Emma (Emma Capp) grew up together in Hampshire and moving to Birmingham to study music, met Charlie (McNeill & Heys, The Fair Rain) and Ruth (Ruth Angell, Peacock Angell Band, The Rainbow Chasers) at the Birmingham Conservatoire.

Ruth Angell’s sweet vocals soar over weaving melodies and rich textures, often contrasted with sparse harmonies and magically inventive soundscapes. Their music has captivated audiences from folk clubs to festivals.

a Live & Local show, suitable for those aged 10 and over.

Through extensive touring, Kit’s trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK. Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance of blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility.

Kit Holmes’ trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK through extensive touring with John Etheridge and John Renbourn. Both Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw have featured her on their BBC shows, and her recent concerts include: the Anne Frank Awards at the BBC, Paul McCartney’s LIPA, a performance for Bill Bryson and a headline show at the International Guitar Festival.

Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance of hook laden guitar work straddling the borders between folk and blues and pop, with gorgeous and poignant lyrical songs, absolutely delightful instrumentals and an incredible sense of fun.

‘Kit Holmes is that welcome curiosity, a young composer and singer-songwriter with all the makings of a new British guitar heroine and a style that skips cheerfully across boundaries. She mostly plays acoustic guitar but she’s certainly no folk singer; her songs are far too pop-influenced. But then she’s certainly not a pop artist either, hence her ability to suddenly switch to instrumental pieces that echo anything from folk baroque to flamenco and jazz – after all, she has toured extensively with John Etheridge. Impressive.’ The Guardian

In the mood for Ellington? As he said “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing”

The flawless jazz singer Sarah Moule, and immaculate pianist Simon Wallace, bring us an evening of beautiful music paying tribute to “Duke Ellington”, one of the greats of jazz.

This polished and spirited tribute is devoted to the sophisticated, elegant musical world of Duke Ellington, and his visionary arranging and composing partner, Billy Strayhorn. It intriguingly recasts select standards from their canon, including some rarely performed works. Stunning arrangements of songs from the vast repertoire capture the classic melodies and jazz anthems to glorious effect.

British vocalist Sarah Moule’s purring voice – honeyed in sound, subtle in timing and pitch, shrewd in weighting the music with meaning, captivates. Simon Wallace’s arrangements and sympathetic accompaniment are immaculate. Together, they create an intimate and striking voice-and-piano show.

a Live & Local show suitable for those aged 10 and over.

Twice winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo (2013, and 2016), Devon based Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have become one of the UK’s most adored and formidable folk duos of recent years.

With 5 critically acclaimed studio albums to their names, and an exciting stage act, the couple has forged a formidable reputation at the very forefront of British contemporary folk music. Their enigmatic and contemporary folk tunes have captured the hearts of the world since they came together.

A review of their latest release Personae calls the album “…by turns curious, thought-provoking, moving and magical – a complete cornucopia, astutely delivered by one of the most intriguing, uninhibited and popular duos on the British folk scene.”

The Guardian describes Kathryn as “a powerful, versatile singer who can switch from thoughtful ballads to stomping acoustic rock”, while MOJO describes guitarist extraordinaire Sean as “one of the unsung heroes of modern British folk”.

Kathryn’s early duo career with fellow Barnsleyite, Kate Rusby led to much critical acclaim. They released an award winning album with Kathryn becoming the first singer to win the revered BBC Young Tradition award. The Kate and Kathryn partnership soon led to them teaming up with the 3 Lakeman brothers from West Devon. The folk – pop band ‘Equation’ was born!

Kathryn fronted the band for many years, gracing exotic stages all over the world, 5 years of which were spent almost exclusively in the U.S. Her relationship with Sean Lakeman flourished both personally and musically, and after a decade of relentless touring, the two decided to return to their English folk roots and gig as an acoustic duo.

We are thrilled and delighted to be welcoming them to Crich.
