Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker

Double BBC Folk Award nominees Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker infuse ageless stories of love and loss with their exquisite command of many instruments.

Whether interpreting words centuries old or singing her own authentic lyrics, Josienne's jewel-like voice finds the nuance in the simplest phrase and sends it, effortlessly, straight to your heart. Ben's musical tact and flair for arrangement provide the perfect setting, allowing the song centre-stage.

Critical recognition soon followed with the Spiral Earth Award for Best Duo and coveted Radio 2 folk award nominations for Best Newcomers and Best Duo. The live performance is a thing of delight - enchanted reviewers have spoken of shimmering cathedrals of sound - and its purity will stay with you long after the last note fades.

Their first major album together - Fire and Fortune – confirmed their place among the very best musicians of their generation and reached No. 1 on the UK Amazon folk chart. Their next album Nothing Can Bring Back the Hour is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. See, read and hear more at www.josienneclarke.co.uk

The Power of Compassion

Eight Tibetan monks bring a moving and inspirational insight into the world of sacred music and monastic dance. Ancient musical instruments from the Tibetan Tantric tradition are used: the conch-shell trumpet, horns made from human leg bones, and skull-drums, while the powerful sound of the majestic dungchen or long horns is accompanied by cymbals, bells and drums, evoking the atmosphere of sacred Tibet and an opportunity to experience a mysterious ancient culture.

Encore Screening!

Medea

World class theatre from The National Theatre

Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell. Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace. It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

Dean Friedman

Dean Friedman

Dean Friedman first marked his entry into pop consciousness with his infectious hit single, Ariel, a quirkily irresistible and uncategorizable pop song about a free spirited, pot-smoking, vegetarian Jewish girl in a peasant blouse who lived, as the lyric goes, "...way on the other side of the Hudson".  He scored again with the release of his follow up album, “Well, Well,” Said the Rocking Chair’, and the now classic hit single, Lucky Stars which paved the way for a slew of hits, including Lydia, Rocking Chair, McDonald’s Girl and Woman of Mine. His latest studio album, Submarine Races, has been receiving rave reviews and further confirms Friedman’s status as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.

“With his mix of jaunty ditties, sentimental ballads and bashful charm, Friedman is the pop troubadour of choice.”  The Scotsman.

The Punky Reggae Party Show with Vivien Goldman ’BringingConsciousBack’ + DJ Wendy May

A one-woman multimedia soiree with writer, educator and post-punk musician Vivien Goldman, aka The Punk Professor, who presents a multimedia exploration with previously unseen footage of those mid-1970s years that Bob Marley described as the Punky Reggae Party. Evoking a time when music was fired with mission and meaning, Goldman, who now teaches Punk, Reggae and Afrobeat at New York University, re-visits artists she wrote about and hung out with, like The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Lee Perry, The Slits, The Specials, Aswad and Steel Pulse. In those dub days, music was a cultural challenge to a stagnant, racist system. Come and discuss what role it plays now, in our post-show ‘reasoning’, then get dancing with DJ Wendy May who hosted London’s most successful Friday night club, The Locomotion and was a presenter on Channel 4’s The Tube and Capital Radio London.

8pm till midnight cabaret seated (with space to dance later)

Furnace Mountain

Furnace Mountain

Last time, Furnace Mountain toured the U.K. it was as if they turned the whole world upside down. Bob Harris said they were “wonderful” and provided a studio session for his BBC Radio 2 show, then they were selected for the BBC 2 TV show as one of the highlights from Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival. The band now draws big crowds to some of the best ‘live’ music venues on the circuit, all stimulated by hugely-complimentary reviews. In America, they count the Coen Brothers amongst their biggest admirers.
