The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, Improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.

Jake's Progress - An evening without Jake Thackray

Saturday 23rd February 2019 ~ 8pm - Jake's Progress - An evening without  Jake Thackray

John Watterson is Jake’s biographer and the UK’s leading performer of Jake’s songs. As Fake Thackray he has toured with Fairport Convention, played at many festivals, theatres, clubs and on national radio. John has recently uncovered 15 wonderful songs written by Jake but never released - some have lain forgotten in the BBC archives for decades, others found in Jake’s personal papers have never been heard.

These songs, along with never-before told stories from the biography research plus several much-loved Jake classics, feature in John’s new show - a hilarious and captivating celebration the life and songs of one of this country’s finest and funniest wordsmiths.

Highly entertaining whether you are discovering Jake for the first time, or an ardent fan.

APRIL

Shappi Khorsandi

Thursday 18th April 2019 ~ 8pm - Shappi Khorsandi

Comedian, author, cultural icon and - most recently - idiot who agreed to be tortured on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!', Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts. But live comedy is where she's in her element, and now - after her spell in the jungle - she sets out for the more welcoming destination of South Molton.

A brand new show packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, this is Shappi's warts and all journey through the 90s comedy scene, to breaking through on telly and then letting it all slip away.

As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books, and seen sleeping in a hammock.
