Band members line up for the Miraculous Medicine Show

Hurry, Hurry, Hurry! Step right up and see the Show!

Styled after the old medicine shows that rolled into town and attracted and held their audiences with a combination of music and far-fetched spectacle while selling seemingly miraculous elixirs.

Kate Lissauer, (who hails from West Maryland, USA,) and her Buffalo Gals create the atmosphere of fun, excitement and frivolity that surrounds the medicine show, all wrapped around the great old-time music and amazing percussive step-dance of the American country tradition performed by Sibylle Riesen who describes herself as the foot musician as her dance provides the “drum“rhythm in the band.

“Their intoxicating mix of Appalachian, Cajun, Blues and Bluegrass, delivered in a very authentic string band style, sets them apart from many of the UK and US based string band acts around today” - Maverick Magazine.

So come along folks, and expect to hear some of your favourite music from the likes of The Carter Family, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams led by champion fiddler and banjo player Kate mixed with good humour!

Tickets £12 Adults/£6 children available from Burway Books, John Thomas Florist, or C.S. Town Council or on line here.

Little Rmba band in Cafe Perido

Little Rumba, one of the most popular bands of the Marches, is well known for not only their originality but also their humour and a unique blend of styles.

John Hymas, (violin, viola and accordion) founder member of Hoover the Dog, Pete Mustill (singer and Guitarist) led formation of the Tango Band, and also joined with Hugh Colvin to gain top third album in the Czech charts! Hugh is the bands saxophonist producing exciting material, and Jacqui Savage stimulating bass player who has worked with a series of border bands.

For this concert they will be joined by fabulous Welsh singer and song writer Jess Hall who also features on their latest album “Café Perido” as well as performing with the band “Poisson Rouge” on their video.

The band write all their own music and over the years have developed a recognizable house style owing debts to East European to South America as well as jazz and blues. In fact when I heard Poisson Rouge being played, I could hear shades of Sidney Bechet playing the haunting Petit Fleur, which was being played all over Paris in the Summer of ‘58, where I stayed for a few days when hitch-hiking through France.

So we are really looking to this our final gig for this Spring but we hope to see you all again in September when we launch our Autumn Programme.

Tickets £10 available from John Thomas Florist, Burway Books, or C.S. Town Council Office or online at bit.ly/shi-events.
