THE LEGEND OF EXCALIBOW

Friday 14 December 2018 at 7.30pm

Bowjangles' legend of excalibowIntrepid string quartet Bowjangles presents its most magical show so far - The Legend of Excalibow. A theatrical, musical journey through myths, folklore, legends and a portal in a cello case in the quest to find the most priceless relic of all - a magical violin bow known as Excalibow.

You can expect tales of monsters, ancient gods, historical figures and characters of pure fantasy in this action packed show, all presented in Bowjangles’ own inimitable and unique style, full of comedy, energy, panache and almost every musical genre you can imagine.

Excalibow is Bowjangles latest Edinburgh Fringe Festival offering marks the troupe’s 10th year together.  Described as a

...................."pastiche of fairy tales, with characters who are fun and fantastical, and the ever –changing mood created by the performers and their instruments is nothing short of masterful. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a more talented group …….’  Steve Griffin reviewer, Edinburgh 49.

We are very fortunate to have them here in December and thank Arts Alive for their support.

The show is suitable for all ages. May contain traces of Abba!

The Poobahs

The Poobahs

Friday 21st September 2018 at 7.30 pm

The PoobahsWe are all set for a good start for our Autumn Programme of Friday Night at the Horne and launch with The Poobahs.

This is nothing to do with Poo-Bah, the haughty and inflated character in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado, although the band tell us they chose the name with their collective tongue firmly in their cheek!

The Poobahs don't want to change the world, they just want to play music they love in a variety of genres, ranging from Western Swing to Celtic fiddle tunes; from Tex-Mex to Dartford Delta Blues.

The members of the band are certainly qualified to cover all those bases with John Hymas's rich violin and lively accordion weaving between Dave Luke's warm vocals and understated guitar, all underpinned by Clovis Phillips's dextrous but tasteful bass-playing and George Jackson's solid, subtle percussion.

The Poobahs' toe-tapping, soul-soothing music and great versatility bring undeniable class to an evening in the Silvester Horne.

We will be pleased to welcome you back with a glass of wine or beer or soft drink which is included in your ticket.

Tickets £10 available from John Thomas Florist, Burway Books, or C.S.Town Council office or on line here....

TROPIKAL VIZIONS STEEL BAND

Friday 16th March 2018 at 7.30 pm

Tropikal Vizions Band

“Tropikal Vizions have been sharing their unique sounds of the Caribbean around the world for many years… enjoyed by anyone and everyone even if they are not musically minded....It is the youngest instrument in the world……originated in Trinidad ….

.... we have shared our unique sound with passengers on P&O CARIBBEAN CRUISE LINERS for many years and we would love to share our authentic music with you”  - Evers Powell.

The steel drum is an idiophone traditionally made from an old oil drum, but today from high quality steel. The bottom of the oil drum was first pounded into a bowl, then shaped with hammers to form distinct resonating surfaces.

It did originate from Trinidad in the 1930s and locally the drums are called pans, and the players, pannists.  Winston ‘Spree’ Simon of the John Steel Band is credited with making the first Pan, and in 1946 had an audience with the Governor and performed Ave Maria and God save the King!

The band play a range of styles from traditional island songs, to recent pop songs, as well as reggae, bringing a real taste of the Caribbean to the evening.  You might like to find a colourful shirt or top with bright Caribbean colours to wear, or perhaps you have a straw or sun hat and we will come up with some cocktails so that you can sit back, relax, and dream that you are on cruise ship.

As Evers said to me “we like to make people feel happy and enjoy themselves”.

Don’t think I can add to that! But look forward to seeing you on our Caribbean Evening.

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.
