Shlomo's Beatbox Adventure For Kids!

Shlomo's Beatbox Adventure For Kids!

Shlomo was sadly unable to get to the Beehive on Friday 19th April due to a car accident. Delighted to say that he wasnt hurt and has been able to rearrange his diary for this show.


Shlomo is a world record-breaking beatboxer who makes all kinds of music using just his mouth and a mic. Join this sonic superhero and become one of his sidekicks in a world of funny sounds, brilliant noises and cool music, whether you’re aged 1 or 101!



★★★★★ BroadwayBaby:


"Shlomo had the audience eating out of his hand  from the start. A naturally gifted teacher, Shlomo wanted to show the next generation how to beatbox and they loved him for it.


Shlomo ended this joyous hour with a demonstration of where these simple techniques can lead and brought the house down in wonder at the impossible sounds coming from this man’s mouth. This is a guy at the very  top of his game and he has to be seen - or heard - to be believed!


Listening to the buzz from the children outside after the show, they clearly had a wonderful time. They excitedly queued up to meet Shlomo and high-five their hero.


Throughout, it was clear that the parents were having just as good a time as their kids – maybe even better."


‘The kid’s good. Jaw-droppingly good.’ The Guardian

‘Forget one-man band, this guy is a one-man music festival.’ The Times

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks launch their new album, Feather, with a UK tour.


In April 2018, Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin) retreated to a remote cottage in Ulpha, western Cumbria. They breathed in the mountain view, banked up the fire, and took their instruments out of their cases. Then they sat down, and wrote. In escaping the everyday chaos of busy lives, they realised how caught up in the misery of the 24 hour news cycle they were; absorbed in the heartbreak of the world, they had lost sight of its beauty. Tired of the navel-gazing tendencies of sad song writing, and the terrible events frequently depicted in the folk ballad tradition, they decided to turn their attention to an oft overlooked but vital facet of our lives: hope.


Swiftly, a set of songs and tunes emerged. Stories of wonder from the natural world; tales of rejoicing and long lost returns; and simple thanksgiving for their own surroundings and place in the landscape. Informed by world rhythms, British folk roots, and the duo's penchant for making as much noise as possible with only two people, the album is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope.


"Edgelarks continue to soar and fly on their voyage of innovation" Bright Young Folk


"A confident pair of artists who are able to conjure up slickly atmospheric sound-worlds" Folk Radio UK


“Keen, curious and concerned intellects are at work here. Hannah Martin is an enthralling singer; Phillip Henry plays all manner of guitars and the harmonica, terrifically“ Julian May, Songlines ★★★★★

Clive Carroll.

Clive Carroll.

Acclaimed guitarist and composer Clive Carroll has created a sound world all his own, with a signature blend of warmth and humour that belies his dazzling technical skill.  Clive’s masterful compositions feature influences mined from the delicate cadences of Elizabethan lute classics, the imaginative eccentricity of Frank Zappa, visionary classical composers such as Bartok and Ligeti, and hints of jazz and Delta blues!


Clive made his musical debut at age two as a banjo-strumming cowboy singing nursery rhymes, and went on to earn a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London.

He has toured and worked with guitar greats such as John Williams, Tommy Emmanuel, Xuefei Yang, Ralph Towner, and John Renbourn—as well as pop icon, Madonna!

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

“folk-hewn pop, with gliding guitars and a strident vocal” Clash Music


If anyone ever doubted the ability of music to re-route people’s lives, a page from the formative days of Coco and the Butterfields will soon turn that around.


It’s 2012 in the historic city of Canterbury, where Songwriter Tom Twyman has a plane ticket in his hand, for the journey to a new life he’s mapped out for himself in Australia. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Dulcima Showan, meanwhile, has just left sixth form and is all set for art school in Dublin. Neither of them ever makes it though, because by now they’re in the early stages of a band that has very different plans for them.


The decision to stay was difficult at the time and yet so simple in hindsight, it saw the pair lead Coco and the Butterfields on a steady and unmistakable upward incline, developing an enviable reputation for their exhilarating live shows as their inclusive, acoustic-based sound has ripened to maturity. During the ride, they’ve played to enthusiastic audiences all over the UK and Europe, selling out thousand capacity venues, touring the island’s o2 Academy’s and appearing at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival! On top of this, the band have played numerous support shows for the likes of Bastille, King Charles, Scouting for Girls and Wheatus to name a few.


In recent years Coco have literally lived in their recording studio, taking the time to create a collection of songs that offer an honest and intriguing insight into their lives both together and personally. Starting with an exclusive premiere on Clash Music for their brand new single Monsters, within that description lies a tangible sense of triumph over adversity, and how a negative can be deftly orchestrated into a positive, in the story of Twyman’s tumultuous upbringing.


Constantly touring, constantly writing and never quitting, Coco and the Butterfields will be making music for a long, long time.



Support: Gentlemen of Few

Gentlemen of Few play an eclectic blend of old-time bluegrass and classic rock with skilful vocal harmonies and powerful lyrics.

Albert Lee & his Band

Albert Lee & his Band

If you were lucky enough to get a ticket for his concert here at the Beehive last year you will know that this is one not to be missed. Albert Lee is one of the most respected and renowned guitarists in music history having worked with The Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and The Cricketts over his long and illustrious career. The British-born country-rock artist started his career during the emerging rock 'n' roll scene of sixties London when he swapped bands with the likes of Jimmy Page and Chris Farlowe.


After moving to the U.S. and assimilating himself into the country music scene, Albert quickly garnered a reputation as one of the fastest and finest guitar players in the business. He recorded a number of solo albums and won a Grammy in 2002 for his contribution on 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown'. He continues to tour today and plays his signature Ernie Ball Music Man Guitar.


Albert is a Grammy award-winning musician whose talents continue to be in demand by fellow performers throughout the world.


“The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.” - Eric Clapton

Track Dogs

Track Dogs

Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.


"A total discovery! Think The Eagles mixed with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues!"


“The antidote to a bad day! Four part harmonies steal the show!” - Maverick Magazine


We are delighted to welcome this ‘awesome foursome’ to the Beehive after their stunning performance at this year’s Costa Del Folk, we know that they are going to blow you away with their shiny happy music!


Made up of two Irishmen, an Englishman and an American, the band came together in 2011 to create their unique brand of acoustic music - a veritable 4 x 4 of voices and instruments identified by the fusion of styles which include Folk, Latino, Americana and Bluegrass.The band has a striking line-up of 4-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, ukulele and bass alongside cajón and trumpet with a bit of banjo and mandolin thrown in for good measure!


The Madrid-based band, whose name derives from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system, released their fourth studio album earlier this year, “Kansas City Groove”. It was inspired in part by their recent career-changing experiences at the Folk Alliance in Kansas City in early 2017, and the album is a mix of all that makes theTrack Dogs sound so special: healthy doses of Americana, Latin and Folk.


"Since 2007 the Track Dogs have been creating acoustic music with a strong Latino accent that also successfully draws in folk, bluegrass, Americana and pop. Kansas City Out Groove follows their triumphant 2016 album, Serenity Sessions, an album so packed with sunshine it could be sold as a vitamin C supplement.” - Neil McFadyen, Folkradio.co.uk


“…based in Madrid and with instruments that include cajon, banjo, ukulele, mandolin and trumpet and, rather obviously Spanish guitar, the quartet serve up a south of the border fiesta exuberance that defies you not to stomp the heels and play air castanets….the groove is most definitely on.” - Fatea Magazine, UK


“There’s a rare combination of four great players who also have superb voices, creating stunning individual vocal performances and the almost inevitable perfect harmonies…The playing is outstanding, the harmonies are superb and it’s joyful throughout; just give it a listen.” - Music Riot, June 2018, UK

Strawbs Acoustic

Strawbs Acoustic

A 50TH ANNIVERSARY ACOUSTIC CONCERT


The Strawbs started life as the Strawberry Hill Boys before emerging into the mainstream from the exciting British Folk Movement of the mid 60s alongside other such luminaries as Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Al Stewart and Roy Harper. Their first album with Sandy Denny attracted the attention of A&M Records in America and they became the first British Band to be signed by the famous label. Under the guidance of Herb Alpert & Gerry Moss, major chart success followed with seven consecutive albums in the Billboard charts, including classics ‘Bursting at the Seams’, ‘Grave New World’, ‘Hero & Heroine’, ‘Dragonfly’ and ‘Ghosts’, earning the band two Gold Albums along the way. Massive coast to coast American tours swiftly followed, sharing the stage with The Eagles, Santana and Frank Zappa.


From the days of Sandy Denny pre Fairport and Sonja Kristina pre Curved Air, the band have enjoyed the finest of soloists in their ranks from Rick Wakeman followed by his son Oliver moving on to join Yes as well as Adam Wakeman joining Black Sabbath, Blue Weaver to The Bee Gees and Don Airey to Deep Purple.


The Acoustic Strawbs of the 21st century consist of the founder, constant guiding force, originator and lead vocalist Dave Cousins, described by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best Dylan influenced songwriter to come out of the UK. Alongside him longtime band members lead guitarist Dave Lambert and the astonishingly versatile Chas Cronk, who together formed the front line of the classic 1970s Strawbs.


"The songwriting was phenomenal, and the way the trio embellished sublime melodies with supreme harmonies and incredible instrumentation made their performance unforgettable. In fact, I repeatedly thought "music just isn't this good anymore" - Philadelphia Examiner


"Hearing the brilliant Strawbs was like a tutorial in UK folk music from the past 40 years" - Edmonton Sun


"Never to rest on their laurels, this excellent band continue to produce classic tracks and spectacular live performances" - Q Magazine


"Dave Cousins shows himself as a brilliant and original songwriter" - Classic Rock
