Jamie Smith's MABON

Jamie Smith's MABON

The Last Huzzah!


The music of Jamie Smith’s Mabon is well described as Original, Interceltic, World Music.  Composed by frontman Jamie Smith, and brought to life by five highly accomplished musicians, it draws inspiration directly from the traditional folk music of the Celtic countries: a true exploration of forms and styles found in Celtic music and their forging into something bold and new.  Through a myriad of twists and turns, from thoughtful lyrics to joyful jigs, here is a band that can take you on an emotional journey: expect to witness the joy of creating music expressed in dynamic, virtuosic performance.


But as all good things do, they change and morph, and so it is with this happy band of mates. 2020 will see the band perform their last shows, both venue and festival, before turning to new pastures, putting on slippers, raising the pipe and following different paths. No 'musical differences' here, just a need to move on and try different things - of which i'm sure members will be only too happy to let you know about as the time comes.

Its been a remarkable 21 years, and all the more unusual because it has seen the band rise to the forefront of live music shows across the world - but without the normal backup of huge record company input, media storms and any form of musical compromise!

Enjoy the last months of this amazing band and catch them at one of the shows in 2020!

Firstly in the late 1960s in his filthy Chelsea flat (“Don’t lose your nerve: after the first four years the dirt won’t get any worse”). Here Quentin surveys a lifetime of degradation and rejection. Repeatedly beaten for being flamboyantly gay as early as the 1930s, but also ostracised simply for daring to live life on his own terms.


The second part of the play transitions the audience to New York in the 1990s. Here a much older Quentin, finally embraced by society, regales the audience with his sharply-observed, hard-earned philosophy on how to have a lifestyle: “Life will be more difficult if you try to become yourself. But avoiding this difficulty renders life meaningless. So discover who you are. And be it. Like mad!”.


Naked Hope is a glorious, truthful and uplifting celebration of a genuinely unique human being, and of the urgent necessity to be yourself. Originally produced by Seabright Productions Ltd, and directed by Linda Marlowe, who also directed The Silence of Snow.

ODETTE Band

ODETTE Band

An exciting fusion of jazz, folk and World Music, delivered with the verve and energy of R&B (minus the latter’s pretentiousness), are Odette’s trademark.


An artist whose influences include Steely Dan, Erykah Badu, The Carpenters, George Benson, Susheela Raman, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Maxwell, this singer/guitarist exudes charm, warmth and a silky-smooth, soulful, seductive voice.


During her four years travelling the world, working as a singer on cruise ships, Odette used her free time to concentrate on her playing and writing, returning with a collection of songs which formed her acclaimed debut album, A Shake Of The Hand. The end result is wonderful music that’s fresh, immediate, and leaves space for her unique and dynamic vocal arrangements.


Performing original compositions from her CD, plus some well chosen standards, her music is guaranteed to lift your soul and send you home with a smile.


As The Sunday Times' Clive Davis opined when reviewing the CD: “A star in the making . . . Definitely one for the summer playlist.”


Accompanying Odette is a stellar quartet of Stefanos Tsourelis (Acoustic Guitar/Oud), Kartik Raghunathan (Vocals/Violin), Dave Jones (Electric Bass) and Eric Ford (Drums/Percussion).

A Lesson From Auschwitz

A Lesson From Auschwitz

In 1941, Rudolf Höss, Commandant of the Nazi concentration camp known as Auschwitz, assembled his SS personnel in a secret meeting with the express purpose of introducing a new method for exterminating Europe's Jews: Zyklon B, a deadly poison gas. Every soldier in attendance was sworn to secrecy, and no one questioned its usage. No one except a lone Jewish prisoner, forced to participate and humiliated throughout; the very prisoner upon which this "lesson" would be demonstrated.


Based upon real events, 'A Lesson from Auschwitz' explores how and why the Nazis did what they did, shedding light on the mentality of the perpetrators and the disturbing reality of life in a death camp.


Praise for 'A Lesson from Auschwitz':


"as as piece of theatre it excels in practically every single way... an exceptional piece of work and a vital reminder that something like this can never be allowed to happen again."

Rating: ★★★★★

~Sophie Adnitt, BritishTheatre.com


"MAGNIFICENT... a powerfully realised drama that finds new angles on these events where so many have trod before... the most powerful refutation there could be of Holocaust denial... a majestic statement of the power of theatre"

Rating: ★★★★★

~Tim Hochstrasser, Plays To See


"Both Michael Shon and James Hyland are simply brilliant in their respective roles and deserve the highest of applause for these powerful performances... I honestly believe this was one of the most powerful and most important pieces of theatre I've ever seen... This production is the perfect way to remember and to honour those who tragically lost their lives."

~Chloe Fry, Centre Stage


"this production should be seen by all - especially in the light of recent events."

~Carolin Kopplin, UK Theatre Network


"James Hyland who plays "Höss" (as well as writing, directing and producing the piece) is superb as the sadistic commandant whilst giving us glimpses of the madness of the man... it's important that plays like this are seen by as many people as possible"

~Alan Fitter, London Theatre 1


"Michael Shon gives a powerful performance as Könisberg, a man who has been worn down by life in Auschwitz but who still retains his dignity... This is an incredibly powerful piece by Brother Wolf."

~Loitering in the Theatre


"An outstanding performance by Brother Wolf... an extremely powerful and thought provoking show. Long will it be remembered."

~Four Shires Magazine

ROH Encore: Fidelio (12A)

ROH Encore: Fidelio

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano,


Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock



The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Emily Slade, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.


The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.


Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That’s about to change!

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Nominated Musician Of The Year


After embarking on a solo career, releasing his debut solo album The Unfinished Violin on Island Records and touring it to sell-out crowds on the 2019 album launch tour, Sam is releasing his highly anticipated second solo album in Spring 2020.

Moving on from his five year connection to the First World War, which inspired his first album and captured the nation’s hearts through appearances on Antiques Roadshow and BBC Breakfast, alongside BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6Music, Sam is moving on to making music on his own terms, with three of his favourite musicians and with a totally fresh approach and a big sound.

Sam and his new band are putting something into English music that has never been there before. This album has the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes.

The new album occupies a very different sound world to The Unfinished Violin. Leaving string sections, piano and harmonium behind, the new band features acoustic and electric guitars and double bass.

•      Jack Rutter – guitar (Seth Lakeman, Jackie Oates, Moore Moss Rutter)

•      Ben Nicholls – double bass (Seth Lakeman, Nadine Shah, Kings Of The South Seas, Wild Rose, The Full English)

•      Louis Campbell – electric guitar (member of National Youth Folk Ensemble 2016-18, BBC Introducing with Big Massive Orchestra, studying guitar at RNCM)


Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former artistic director of the National Folk Youth Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and a superb instrumentalist at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music.
