THOMAS FORD

Saturday 16th February, 8.00pm

www.thomasfordblues.com

 

 

Howling one man blues band Thomas Ford is from Plymouth. He has been playing sold out shows at some of Europe's biggest and best known blues, jazz and roots music festivals for the last 5 years or so, having established a large following in the UK. His self-penned blues songs are observant, cynical, loaded with humour, innuendo and rooted in delta blues tradition. His virtuoso bottleneck guitar playing and raucous rack-mounted harmonica are complemented by foot stomped percussion and vocals which are shouted, spat and snarled from an otherwise reserved mouth. "Exceptional" Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2.

 

Advance tickets are £10 and will be available from the Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village shop about 4 weeks before each event or from Adrian Birch brockweirevent@gmail.com, or 01291 689812. £12 on the door. Doors Open 7.30. Performance 8.00. Refreshments available. BYO alcohol.

THE WITCHES OF PENDLE

Friday 8th March, 8.00pm

www.dawnstate.co.uk

 

 

A spellbinding new play inspired by the true story of the Pendle Witches. It’s 1615 and Magistrates, Potts and Nowell, are on a mission to arm their countrymen against a plague of devilish outsiders. Until now their chief weapon has been Jennet Device, youngest of the Pendle Coven whose testimony condemned her entire family to the noose. But now Jennet has grown up; her eyes are starting to open and, tonight, heads will roll. Dawn State Theatre Co. combine haunting music and bold theatricality to bring the heart-breaking story of Britains’s most notorious witch hunt to life in a new play by Gareth Jandrell. For audiences aged 12+. “Chilling and heart-breaking, this is the best kind of history lesson” Scotsman.

 

Advance tickets are £10 and will be available from the Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village shop about 4 weeks before each event or from Adrian Birch brockweirevent@gmail.com, or 01291 689812. £12 on the door.

HARBOTTLE AND JONAS

Friday 5th April, 8.00pm

www.harbottleandjonas.com

 

 

Harbottle and Jonas combine the rich traditions of folk music with original and contemporary interpretations using a blend of closely intertwined vocal harmonies. Each song has been carefully written and researched, and accompanied with a great story and a good deal of humour; however macabre the content may be! Their songs cover a range of social, political and historical issues. They also sing about the family, the Devil, Malcolm and Grimsby. Their music is original and unique and performed with integrity. Each performance establishes a warm rapport, engagement and interaction with the audience. “Stunning song-writing and heart-rending arrangements” Americana UK. “Damn fine“ Mike Harding. BBC Radio 2.

 

Advance tickets are £10 and will be available from the Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village shop about 4 weeks before each event or from Adrian Birch brockweirevent@gmail.com, or 01291 689812. £12 on the door.
