This is the perfect start to the Christmas Season.

The Carnival Band with an exciting array of unusual instruments

‘Those classy exponents of early English music, the Carnival Band.’ (The Guardian)

‘The Carnival Band – aka Henry VIII’s Rock ‘n Roll band – created glorious chaos at the Courtyard, delighting a full house in the process. (Hereford Times)

Come and enjoy an evening of seasonal music from one of our best-loved early music folk bands.

With their unique approach, medieval and folk carols played on ancient and modern instruments plus “a cappella” harmony and new songs add a contemporary take on Christmas. They are hugely popular with audiences.

From Medieval England to ‘le jazz cool’ via Latin rhythms and Cajun beats, these five musicians move effortlessly from one musical genre to another adding a sprinkling of rock, world music and theatricality for extra flavour.

They have over twenty different musical instruments ranging from the vibrant blare of the Shawms, Bagpipes and Electric Guitar to the seductive tones of the Turkish Clarinet and fiddle to the enchanting delicacy of the renaissance Cittern.

“Full of vivacity, originality and wit” ........     BBC Stoke and Staffs

“The band is terrific” ........ Lancashire Evening Post

One Saturday morning a couple of years ago, I was walking across the Square in Shrewsbury, and I became aware of a superb voice around which a crowd had gathered to listen. The voice belonged to Richard Stark. I knew then we needed to hear this man at the Silvester Horne!

A Celebration of Simon and Garfunkel

Monochrome Image: Tim Chu and Ian Bailey in concert

Friday 20th October 2017 at 7.30 pm

Monochrome Image: Tim Chu and Ian Bailey in concertWe are pleased to welcome singer songwriters Tim Chu and Ian Bailey who will be performing “A Celebration of Simon & Garfunkel” billed by the BBC “as the UK’s leading non tribute show currently dazzling live music lovers throughout the UK.”

Tim Chu has been a professional session musician for many years, and his music features in TV, Film and Radio. He has loved the music of Paul Simon from a young age as the original LPs were rarely off his parents’ record player!
Tim had the vision to put together the show and joined with Lancashire born Ian Bailey to complete the duo.

Ian has been a singer songwriter for many years, with three critically acclaimed solo albums of his own material. They blend in their own unique way, without falling into the tribute act category. Two great musicians performing some of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic songs in an intimate and relaxed way.

Lifelong friend of Ian, Shropshire singer/songwriter Gary Hall, who now lives in Church Stretton, says “We have been close friends and worked together in the studio for several years on various projects. When Ian first told me about show that he was embarking on with Tim I knew that it would be something special, knowing the quality of musicianship from both artists. I’m thrilled they have chosen the Silvester Horne as their Shropshire debut, don’t miss the show folks!”

“Everyone loves the music of Simon &Garfunkel and for me no one has created it better than Tim and Ian, the concert simply blew me away” Phil Cool, TV comedian, impressionist, and musician.
