Critically acclaimed singer-songwriters Jamie Lawson, Gemma Hayes, Richard Walters and Laura Zocca join forces for a special acoustic round show, unlike any other gig you will go to next year. Each artist will perform a song, followed by the next act, the show will move around from artist to artist, like a tag team of traditional signing troubadours! The show will feature well known folk & acoustic pop songs to sing along to plus original brand new music from each of the acts.

Jamie Lawson was the first signing to Ed Sheeran’s label Gingerbread Man Records in 2015. That same year he released his self-titled third album, featuring the international hit Wasn’t Expecting That, which has to this day been streamed over 250 million times. The album hit #1 in 26 countries. Since then, Jamie has won an Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’, gone on a stadium tour with Ed Sheeran playing 52 dates throughout Europe and continued to tour extensively, most recently as support on the critically acclaimed Deacon Blue UK Tour.

Gemma Hayes is a highly respected Irish singer songwriter. Her debut album, Night On My Side, was released in 2002, for which she won Best Female Artist at the Hot Press Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination. Since then she has released 4 studio albums and a limited-edition live album. Gemma is constantly in demand for film and tv placements – her version of Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game, recorded for the US TV series Pretty Little Liars, is now close to 18 million streams on Spotify alone. Gemma is currently working on a new album and will be showcasing some of her brilliant new songs on the Acoustic Round Tour.

Richard Walters has released five critically acclaimed albums and four EP's since 2007. His music has featured on a number of hit TV shows including; Grey's Anatomy, Tin Star and CSI: Miami. As a songwriter and collaborator Richard has worked with Grammy winner Joe Henry, British icon Alison Moyet & Oscar nominated actress and singer Florence Pugh. Richard is also one third of the Decca/ Mercury KX signed band LYR, often compared to the mighty Sigur Ros, with current poet Laureate Simon Armitage and Patrick Pearson. Collectively, his work has amassed over 100 million streams.

Laura Zocca is a 26 year old singer songwriter originally from London. She began making music at the age of 14 and started gathering a following via YouTube and Soundcloud. Posting both covers and original songs she has since accumulated a phenomenal 40+ million combined streams.

An Evening With Simon & Oscar (Ocean Colour Scene)

In 2015 Ocean Colour Scene celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a sell-out acoustic tour of some of the most prestigious UK Concert Halls,  it was not only their most successful for 15 years, but also their best received, with ecstatic audience reactions every night.

Simon and Oscar are continuing the theme in 2022 with a tour of intimate seated venues, the perfect stages for their acoustic performances of all the big hits and anthems, including The Riverboat Song, The Circle, Traveller’s Tune, Hundred Mile High City and The Day We Caught The Train. These shows are the latest chapter in a remarkable career that’s seen OCS rise from Breton shirt-wearing Stone Roses disciples to one of Britpop’s biggest bands (their 1998 arena tour was the biggest by any UK group that year). In their 30 years together, they’ve enjoyed five Top 10 albums, six Top 10 singles and a mantelpiece full of awards. But behind all the swagger and the style were great songs, with words and melodies that found their way into your head and heart. It’s time to hear these songs again, stripped back but every bit as brilliant.

This defiant love story reshaped the Roman Empire as one of history's most shocking couples deliver a satisfying mix of relatable comedy and gut-wrenching pathos.

Antony and Cleopatra

The Bowler Crab Theatre Company has soared leaps and bounds since its founding 7 years ago, producing 20 Shakespeare projects touring across the UK!

Eagerly anticipated by fans, Antony & Cleopatra has been on BC’s shortlist since designs were drawn up back in 2014! BC is the resident theatre company of Half House Farm (C16th performance venue in Three Oaks) and The Mermaid Inn (600 year old inn situated in Rye, historically famous for a visit from Shakespeare’s company in 1597).

Ten years after the assassination of Julius Caesar, Marcus Antony rules a third of the empire alongside Octavian Caesar and Lepidus; but how long can the peace last when Antony leaves Rome for his lover Cleopatra, the enigmatic Queen of Egypt and widow of Julius? Entangled in a web of responsibilities, Antony ignores his duties, the call of Rome and the ever-increasing gossip in this dark romantic Tragedy. Chiefly concerned with the relationship between the titular characters, this epic historical love story takes a good hard look at romance under pressure, as the lovers’ gritty relationship is laced with lust, manipulation and betrayals that spell war for Rome and Egypt…

On their mission to complete the Shakespeare Canon, BC are proud to produce one of The Bard’s most renowned pieces; one that blends the thrill of romance, the rush of comedy, the truth of history and, ultimately, the horror of tragedy. This production has been cut down to approximately 2 ½ hrs (excluding the interval) and features Shakespeare’s original Jacobean writing style and language with a ‘heightened-historical’ costume concept.

Amelia White and Robbie Cavanagh

As a songwriter, I feel obliged to tell the stories that are coming through in the air to me in my world, whether it's personal or political or both. The antenna is always on. Amelia White

The East Nashville legend returns to the UK with stunning songs from her new Kim Richey-produced record Love I Swore. A critically acclaimed favourite of Bob Harris, BBC, NPR, Rolling Stone and others, White's previous honours include a year-end Top 10 record pick by the Daily Telegraph. There's some great songwriting on this. Check it out, you will NOT be disappointed Ralph McLean BBC Radio Ulster.
This is the real deal, full of juicy tunes the woman just oozes cool. With an album as good as this, it's truly an appointment not to be missed, a chance to see East Nashville's finest at the top of her game. Take it Americana UK

Though his latest record To Leave/To Be Left has received high praise, it's Robbie Cavanagh's live performance that has really turned heads and attracted much deserved attention. Stepping out on stage with a guitar over his shoulder and a well-earned confidence in his chest, Robbie can hardly open his mouth without also opening his heart. Sincere and wonderful Bob Harris BBC Radio 2

David Ford And Annie Dressner - The Summer Holiday Tour

David Ford and Annie Dressner started their musical collaboration in early 2022. But listening to the blend of their voices and their timeless songwriting, youd be forgiven for thinking they had been making music together forever. This summer they take to the road in support of debut release, 48 hours, a record named after the two-day burst of creativity that was its origin.

Annie Dressner was born and raised in New York City where she recorded the first of three acclaimed albums. Annie's heartfelt, confessional writing style and honest vocal delivery have won her supporters at BBC Radio 2 and 6Music and secured numerous festival appearances.

David Ford is an award-winning songwriter and has been hailed by The Guardian as one of Britain's finest live performers. His 2022 solo album May You Live in Interesting Times was album of the week in both The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Times.

Annie and David decided their first tour together should be something entirely different to the well-worn track beaten by troubadours down the motorways of Britain to the dark and pungent back-rooms of major cities. Drawn to the atmosphere and intimacy of small theatres and the romance of seaside towns, David Ford and Annie Dressner present a unique evening of song. A collection of tender musical moments arranged for the stage.

UK Drill and Hip-hop artist, Tion Wayne, is leading the way in the scene and his tune with Russ Millions Keisha & Becky had a well deserved place in the top 10 UK charts.

Marty Stuart

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.

While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. Including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.

Opening with a Native American prayer, a nod to Stuart’s affinity for the indigenous people, particularly the Lakota, Way Out West transports the listener to the lonely but magical American West. It is, in its own way, musical peyote.

“If you go and sit by yourself in the middle of the Mojave Desert at sundown and you’re still the same person the next morning when the sun comes up, I’d be greatly surprised,” says Stuart. “It is that spirit world of the West that enchants me.”

Specifically the promised land of California. Growing up in Philadelphia, Mississippi, Stuart was taken by the mystique of the Golden State: the culture, the movies and especially the music. “Everything that came out of California captivated my kid mind in Mississippi,” he says. “It seemed like a fantasy land. Way Out West is a love letter to that.”

As such, the album could only be recorded there, and Stuart, with his longtime backing band the Fabulous Superlatives, decamped for California. They recorded half of the album at Capitol Records and the rest at Campbell’s M.C. Studio, a gritty space with a vibe all its own. Much of the early Heartbreakers music was recorded at Campbell’s and that primal rock & roll energy is palpable throughout Way Out West, reinforced by Capitol’s own rock history: the Hollywood studio birthed iconic records like the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and the country-rock of Glen Campbell’s Wichita Lineman. Way Out West, with its atmospheric production, evokes those classics, as well as cowboy records like Marty Robbins’ Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs and Cash’s The Fabulous Johnny Cash, one of the first albums Stuart ever owned.

“This is a California record, and I knew that when I emerged from the studio at night, I wanted to see palm trees and breathe that desert air,” says Stuart.

Listeners too can feel the warmth of those Santa Ana winds over the album’s 15 tracks, a collection of newly written originals, instrumentals and rare covers like the Benny Goodman-penned “Air Mail Special,” and “Lost on the Desert,” once recorded by Johnny Cash.

“I asked Johnny about that song when I was in his band, and he said the only thing he remembered about it was changing some words,” laughs Stuart. “But Way Out West just as easily could have been titled Lost on the Desert.”

The idea of losing oneself runs through Way Out West, with the title track both a spiritual adventure and a cautionary tale – Stuart wraps up the travel ballad with a spoken aside about his own bad trips with pills.

“I researched that for 30 years,” he jokes, self-deprecatingly. “There’s a lot of truth in that song.”

The rollicking standout “Time Don’t Wait” also offers a warning: to not let life race by. “As the dirt fell through my fingers / the wind it seemed to say / don’t put off until tomorrow, what you can today,” sings Stuart. “That’s just country wisdom. I can’t claim that. But I like when you can talk about the simple things that are around us. That makes country music come to life for me,” he says.

When it comes to transforming country songs into tangible experience, Stuart has a secret weapon: the Fabulous Superlatives. Made up of guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and new member, bassist Chris Scruggs, the Superlatives are an extension of Stuart himself.

“The Superlatives are missionaries, they’re fighting partners. They’re my Buckaroos, my Tennessee Three, my Strangers. They’re my legacy band and have been since Day One,” says Stuart.

Along with the playing of Mike Campbell, who contributed guitar, B-3 organ and piano, the Fabulous Superlatives are all over Way Out West and ensure that the mystical detours Stuart explores always remain of the moment.

As Stuart himself will tell you, he often ventures off the reservation – in a way, his entire career has been “way out west.” While other artists chased popular trends in the name of radio play, he formed complete bodies of work, not unlike the greats he idolized. Way Out West is just the latest embodiment of that creative mission.

“I would play this record for Hank Williams, Merle Haggard or Ernest Hemingway and never bat an eye,” says Stuart. “There’s something in there that would entertain each of them.”

But Stuart also made Way Out West for those who come after. As he sees it, there is no greater responsibility in music than to share what you’ve learned.

“Lester Flatt saw something in me and gave me his wisdom, wit and music. Johnny Cash was my best friend. But all of that doesn’t come for free. The job is to pass it along,” says Stuart, stretching out his arms. “That’s the way it’s supposed to be in country music.”

With Way Out West, Stuart holds up his end of the deal.

Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives

If you were to give country music an address, you might say it's at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock 'n' roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning.

No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music – from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God – in twenty-three tracks.

“I've always thought that country music had a really unique relationship with gospel music,” Stuart says. “It is interesting to me that country stars can sing drinking and cheating songs authentically, then at some point during the evening or the broadcast, take their hats off and say, 'Friends, here's our gospel song.' If it’s the right messenger it seamlessly flows. That's a time-honored tradition, from Jimmie Rodgers to Hank Williams to Johnny Cash. Rogue prophets and rogue preachers. That is my world.

“Another part of my world, while growing up in Mississippi, was listening to our local radio station, WHOC. 'One thousands watts of pure pleasure.' In the morning, they signed on with country music and farm reports. At noon they played gospel music for an hour. Then afternoon was rock 'n' roll and top 40. Late afternoon was soul. And they signed off with easy

listening. I thought everybody's radio station was like that. It was kind of a reflection of how Mississippi is. The birthplace of America's music. The church house is the common denominator, and every form of music has a touch of the blues. So I come from that perspective. Traditional country touched me the deepest, but all of these other styles were relevant to me. It felt like just another day at the office.”

That day at the office on Saturday Night and Sunday Morning offers a rousing blend of Stuart originals, classic covers and traditional hymns and that throw their arms around the whole history of not only country but modern American music. Kicking off with the revved-up rockabilly rush of “Jailhouse” and “Geraldine,” disc one winds through Stuart’s grand “When It Comes To Loving You” and the honky tonker “Talking To The Wall” through deeply soulful covers of Charlie Rich's “Life Has Its Little Ups And Downs” and George Jones' “Old Old House” before wrapping up with the positively frantic blues rocket ride of “Streamline.” Disc two trades sawdust for sermons, and goes right to the river with the gorgeous “Uncloudy Day,” featuring not only the legendary Mavis Staples on lead vocals, but Marty playing a guitar that the Staples family bequeathed him that once belonged to Pops Staples. The Fabulous Superlatives shine with their celebratory group harmony singing on standouts like “That Gospel Music,” “Angels Rock Me To Sleep” and “Mercy #1,” while uptempo rockers like “Keep On the Firing Line” and “Good News” build the service to a big hands-to-heaven call and response finish with “Cathedral,” featuring the mighty soul shouts of Pastor Evelyn Hubbard.

“There are a few twists and turns in the record,” Stuart says with a smile, “so I hope it all feels like it's part of the same thing. As a band, that's where we are. It's natural.”

Born in the small town of Philadelphia, Mississippi, Marty Stuart caught the music bug early, displaying prodigious talent on every stringed instrument he picked up. At an age when most kids are running bases in little league, 13-year old Stuart was logging cross-country interstate miles as a mandolinist with the legendary Lester Flatt's road band. In his twenties, Stuart toured with Johnny Cash, and also played with other legends such as Bill Monroe, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. By the late 1980s, Stuart was a solo artist, rising faster than mercury in the heat of a hillbilly fever. But amidst the hits and hoopla, the bright lights eventually revealed a deeper truth.

“I had such a great run, playing butt-wigglin' songs in coliseums, and it was just wearing thin,” he admits. “I remember spinning around one day at Foxwoods, up in Massachusetts, there was a full house, the band was really loud, we were doing good, the crowd was screaming and hollering, and I thought, 'I am not enjoying this music.' And then I told myself, 'Well get back to enjoying it, because you’re on top of the world right now. Platinum records, Grammys, it was all coming. But I did not like the way my legacy was shaping up. So I took the better part of a year to unwind it. Another issue that fueled that decision was that radio was starting to cool on my records. I was beginning to chase after hits, and it was tearing me apart. I had one record left on my contract with MCA, and I vowed to get back to the music I’ve always loved the most, and let my heart be the chart.'”

To get some clarity, Stuart consulted his friend and mentor, Johnny Cash. “I went to his house and said, 'J.R., I've got a record in my mind called The Pilgrim. I laid it out to him, and he said, 'Well, just know you're stepping up for rejection. Potentially.' I said, 'I understand, but I've got to do this.' He said, 'If you've got to do it, that's all the reason you need.' So I made the record. It was a great critical success, and it was a line-in-the-dirt artistic moment of reconnecting with my true self, a piece of myself that I had hidden away years before, to go exploring. From that moment forward, I realized that there's a different way to live a life as a musical citizen.”

Stuart knew he didn't want to travel this new path alone, so he recruited fellow musical missionaries Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson and Paul Martin.

“From the Superlatives' first rehearsal, I knew this was the band of a lifetime,” Stuart says. “I knew this was my Buckaroos, my Strangers, my Texas Troubadours - my legacy band. Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson and Paul Martin are not only musical geniuses, but statesmen. The Fabulous Superlatives are without question one of the greatest bands of our time. We have played ourselves out of the woods and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is one of those milestone projects in the band’s legacy that truly brings the spunk and fire of the bandstand to the studio. The other person that should be mentioned is the invisible Superlative, Mick Conley. His engineering brings a touch of class and a spark to our music that any band would long for. We are a much better band because of Mick’s presence.

With acclaimed albums like Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions and Souls’ Chapel, as well as The Marty Stuart Show, a musical variety program on RFD-TV, Stuart says “I’ve found my place to drive a stake in the dirt, and proclaim, this is what I believe in.”

“I think traditional country music should be regarded alongside jazz and ballet and classical music in the pantheon of the arts,” he says. “I thought, 'As a band, that's our mission. Putting our arms around what's left of the culture. Making sure the old timers get loved on and shown dignity.' And then it became, let's show young musicians that traditional country music

is alive and well. The message is, C'mon, over here and play it if it's in your heart. RFD-TV gave me a stage and a broadcast to put country music and Saturday night back together. Those two entities were made for each other. We’ve just finished our 156th episode of The Marty Stuart Show. It’s been pure magic.”

All of Stuart's immersion in authentic country music has also found creative expression through the lens of a camera. Inspired by the photographs of jazz drummer Milt Hinton of his fellow musicians, Stuart realized in the early 1970s that he could fill a similar role as a chronicler. And for decades, he's been capturing strikingly beautiful images of performers and fans that feel like little windows into the soul of our country.

A collection of his most resonant photos is currently on display in an exhibit called American Ballads at Nashville's Frist Museum (also a new coffee table book published by Vanderbilt University Press), and later this year, a second exhibit of his work called The Art of Country Music will open at the Sheldon Gallery in St. Louis.

Of his photography, Stuart says, “Whether it was the doorman at the Opry, or Ernest Tubb's bus driver, or stars or songwriters or musicians, everybody stood still for me and let me take pictures. I'd aim to capture what they all meant to me. It was basically like taking pictures of my family. It takes a tribe to raise a kid, and they were my tribe. All of those people invested something in me when I was a kid, and I wanted to remember that kindness. The thing about that era of those old masters is that most of them were really country people. They were down to earth. Basically, farm people who'd come to town and got a job singing songs. That's what I related to, coming from Mississippi. The other side of it, I wanted to take pictures of my life on the road to send home to my family and they could see what I what I was up to. It was basically documenting family.

"Songwriting, photography, guitar playing, entertaining, singing, designing TV shows - it's all the same thing to me,” Stuart continues. “If I take a good photograph, it absolutely makes me do everything else better. If I play a good guitar solo, it absolutely affects how I take the next picture. It's all interwoven.”

With Saturday Night and Sunday Morning set for an autumn release, and more touring ahead for the Superlatives, Stuart says his expectations are high, but grounded in reality.

“I heard Aretha Franklin say something one time that I never forgot - 'When I do something new, I always wonder if people will like it, but I step forward, present it, close my eyes and stick out my hand and hope somebody takes it.' I thought that was a beautiful way to put it. I hope the new album is accepted. Starting with The Pilgrim forward, I chose a very different path, an unthinkable path, to tear down such a huge wall of success and go, 'That was wonderful, but I'm gonna do something different now.' And basically start over. I look back at what we've done with the Superlatives over the last twelve years, and I'm very proud of it. That legacy that I didn't see forming right that day at Foxwoods, I have a better feeling about it now. And as the old song says, ‘I do believe everything’s gonna be alright.’”

Dave Gorman: Powerpoint to the People

Dave Gorman, the man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life Is Goodish as well as Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure, is back on the road with a brand new live show, Powerpoint To The People

The ‘high priest of the comedy Powerpoint talk’ (The Times) is touring again – as much as anything to demonstrate that a powerpoint presentation doesn’t have to involve a man in a grey suit standing behind a lectern and saying ‘next slide please’. We’ve all had enough of that, so let’s put it all behind us and never speak of it again – there are far more important things to analyse. Well… they’re more important in Dave’s head anyway.

Christmas with Aled Jones & Russell Watson

Two of the world’s greatest classical voices, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, reunite for Christmas 2022 with a brand-new album. Performing together again following a three-year hiatus, the powerhouse duo will also embark on a colossal UK tour this November and December.

The duo will record the album later this year and will be produced by long term collaborator Ian Tilley. The album is also set to feature a very special rendition of Walking In The Air - released by then boy soprano Aled in 1985 - the duo will record this iconic track together, especially for the album.

Aled Jones comments, “After a crazy couple of years for us all, I can’t wait to be reunited with my mate Russell again for our third album together! I’ll always be associated with Christmas, so it’s an honour to be working with him. We always have a blast on tour, so getting to sing our favourite Christmas songs together in so many stunning venues later this year will be a real treat! You never know, Traffic Cone might even make an appearance…and hopefully Chicago has given Russ the chance to brush up on his dancing skills!”

Russell Watson adds, “Aled and I had a great time recording our first two albums, so I’m immensely excited to be back in the studio together working on our third. We had a really tough time choosing from so many magnificent Christmas songs, but we’ve whittled it down to a fabulous selection of tracks which truly mean something to us both. And to get to share a stage again during our UK tour later this year will be such a special experience after three years apart. I hope Christmas With Aled and Russell is on all of your Christmas lists, and I can’t wait to see you all on tour throughout November and December!”

Christmas With Aled and Russell succeeds their first two albums, 2018’s In Harmony and 2019’s Back In Harmony, both of which shot straight to #1 on the UK Classical Album Chart and the top 10 of the UK Official Album Charts upon release.

Two of the nation's most treasured artists, Aled and Russell have achieved tremendous successes between them, from prestigious awards to record-breaking chart sales.

Dead Kennedys

The Dead Kennedys have always merged revolutionary politics with hardcore punk and, in the process, became one of the defining hardcore bands. Often, they were more notable for their politics than their music, but that was part of their impact. More inspired by British punk and the fiery, revolutionary power of the S*x Pistols than the artier tendencies of New York punk rockers. Now they're back and spreading their own message in 2019. This is a 14+ event.
