Christmas is almost here, Xmas Factor is disappearing into the distance (although if you want to jog your memory you can always grab a copy of the album) and 2018 is fast approaching…
And so are two new concerts! Today we’re excited to announce A Night of the Blues and For Tonight, featuring two new musicals as part of the Working Process scheme.
Featuring new musical Crossroads by Beverly Andrews and Tim Sutton. Performed by Hugh Burns.
Take a journey to America’s deep south and join us for an evening of blistering delta blues with legendary guitarist, Hugh Burns.
Crossroads is a blues musical which looks at the life and offers a hypothetical explanation of the mysterious death of blues legend Robert Johnson. An artist who still influences generations of musicians today, almost a century after his death, and a soulful, sweltering evening at St Paul’s.
by Spencer Williams, Shenelle Salcido, and Whitney Rhodes
When their parents die of a mysterious illness in their small Welsh village, surviving siblings Thomas, Haydon, and Nettie are forced to fend for themselves. Inspired by the Romani who once shared their home, Haydon heads off to Liverpool, guitar in hand, to find what he’s been missing. There he meets a Romani woman, Mirela, who speaks to his wandering soul.
This enchanting story, inspired by the author’s great-great-great grandfather’s journals, is magically recounted by a band of Romani musicians. It challenges prejudices, family relationships, and what it means to embrace the unknown. Through a riveting indie-rock/folk score, For Tonight explores the indelible power of home.
Look out for more on both these shows in the new year, and book your tickets now if you want to secure your place!
