Friday 27th April
Spring into Words and Music
– Flanders and Swann, Duo Caprice
Three local duos will bring you some of the springiest, funniest and liveliest words and music for the season. So come along to hear them.
Duo Caprice are Helen Smith on violin and Ben Smith on accordion. They play all kinds of cafe music including tangos, musette waltzes, folk dances and cafe favourites from around Europe and beyond. Romance and nostalgia abound and you are sure to recognise many of the tunes.
Stuart Hayday and Mike Baumber will sing the comic songs of Flanders and Swann. Michael Flanders and Donald Swann wrote and sang over 100 comic songs, interspersed with comic monologues, such as The Gasman Cometh, The Hippopotamus and The Gnu. In the 1950s and 60s they were one of the most popular light entertainers.
Lastly two local poets, Martin Wyatt and Rob Ellks, will bring some of their lighter verse to intersperse these two local acts. This should be a fresh and fun-filled tour-de-force by some our local musical and wordsmithing talent.
