Nostalgic Cinema: National Velvet (1944)

Directed by Clarence Brown

Starring Mickey Rooney, Elizabeth Taylor

Duration 133 mins


Nostalgic Cinema events are kindly sponsored by Home Instead Exeter & East Devon – providers of officially outstanding home care across our community.


When Velvet Brown (Elizabeth Taylor), an equine-loving 12-year-old living in rural Sussex, becomes the owner of a rambunctious horse, she decides to train it for England's Grand National race. Aided by former jockey Mi Taylor (Mickey Rooney) and encouraged by her family, the determined Velvet gets her steed, affectionately called "The Pie," ready for the big day. However, a last-minute problem arises with the jockey and an unexpected rider must step in as a replacement.



Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.


Tickets £5 - includes hot drink, biscuits and chat after the screening.

Exhibition On Screen: John Singer Sargeant (U)

Exhibition On Screen: John Singer Sargeant

JOHN SINGER SARGENT


Directed by David Bickerstaff

Running time: 103 minutes


John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, Exhibition on Screen’s film will examine how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion.


Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, the exhibition reveals Sargent’s power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention. Alongside 50 paintings by Sargent sit stunning items of clothing and accessories worn by his subjects, drawing the audience into the artist’s studio.


Sargent’s sitters were often wealthy, their clothes costly, but what happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of a great artist? The manufacture of public identity is as controversial and contested today as it was at the turn of the 20th century, but somehow Sargent’s work transcends the social noise and captures an alluring truth with each brush stroke.


Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal and shameless self-promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era.


Explore the unique creative process of the late 19th century’s favourite portrait artist and the way in which his portraits captured the spirit of a vibrant and rapidly changing age.

Kung Fu Panda 4

Runing Time 94 minutes

Directors: Mike Mitchell & Stephanie Stine

Cast includes: Jack Black, Awkwafina, Viola Davis


After three death-defying adventures defeating world-class villains with his unmatched courage and mad martial arts skills, Po, the Dragon Warrior (Golden Globe nominee Jack Black), is called upon by destiny to... give it a rest already. More specifically, he's tapped to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace. That poses a couple of obvious problems.


 First, Po knows as much about spiritual leadership as he does about the paleo diet, and second, he needs to quickly find and train a new Dragon Warrior before he can assume his new lofty position. Even worse, there's been a recent sighting of a wicked, powerful sorceress, Chameleon (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), a tiny lizard who can shapeshift into any creature, large or small. And Chameleon has her greedy, beady little eyes on Po's Staff of Wisdom, which would give her the power to re-summon all the master villains whom Po has vanquished to the spirit realm.


So, Po’s going to need some help. He finds it (kinda?) in the form of crafty, quick-witted thief Zhen (Golden Globe winner Awkwafina), a corsac fox who really gets under Po’s fur but whose skills will prove invaluable. In their quest to protect the Valley of Peace from Chameleon’s reptilian claws, this comedic odd-couple duo will have to work together. In the process, Po will discover that heroes can be found in the most unexpected places.

Jacob &  Drinkwater

Jacob & Drinkwater


Join Jacob & Drinkwater as they celebrate 10 years of the duo with a UK tour throughout May & June 2024.


They first began performing together back in 2014. They have since released an EP, a live album, and two studio albums, taken in plaudits from BBC6 and BBC Introducing, performed at Glastonbury and toured extensively in the UK and Europe. With a core sound built around acoustic guitar, double bass and vocal harmonies their live show has been described as “intense and spellbinding” by Folk Radio UK, all its energy, musical chemistry and spontaneity drawing comparisons with the virtuosic pairing of John Martyn and Danny Thompson.


Their strongly folk influenced sound is full of vitality, dynamism and surprising musical departures. Jacob’s sweeping vocals never fail to captivate, delivering many a spine-tingling moment; the fluidity and precision of his finger-picking underpinned by Drinkwater’s nimbly rhythmic double bass; at times sweetly soaring, haunting, percussive and driving, the layers of depth a perfect counterfoil. The added complement of stirring vocal harmonies nicely rounds off the mix.

       

With the duo now living 11,000 miles apart they only tour the UK once a year so catch them while you can!

At a glittering party in 18th-century Paris, the poet Andréa Chenier delivers an impassioned

denunciation of Louis XVI. Five years later, the Revolution has given way to the Terror,

transforming the power balance between Chénier, his beloved Maddalena, and Gérard, the

man who could destroy him...

Jonas Kaufmann headlines David McVicar’s spectacular staging, under the baton of long-

time collaborator Antonio Pappano – who conducts Giordano’s epic historical drama of

revolution and forbidden love in his last production as Music Director of The Royal Opera.

Exhibition On Screen: My National Gallery

MY NATIONAL GALLERY


Directed by Phil Grabsky and Ali Ray


Running time 100 minutes


The National Gallery of London is one of the world’s greatest art galleries. It is full of masterpieces, an endless resource of history, an endless source of stories. But whose stories are told? Which art has the most impact and on whom? The power of great art lies in its ability to communicate with anyone, no matter their art historical knowledge, their background, their beliefs.


This film gives voice to those who work at the gallery – from cleaner to curator, security guard to director – who identify the one artwork that means the most to them and why. An assortment of people from all walks of life who have a strong connection to the gallery make surprising choices of both well-known and lesser-known artworks. Finally, some well-known celebrities explain what they head for when they visit the gallery.


These stories are used as a lens through which to explore the 200-year history of the National Gallery and what the future may hold for this spectacular space.


Everyone in this film has a special connection to the National Gallery, making for some heart-warming, moving and surprising stories.


Beloved celebrities, devoted staff members and world class experts come together to paint a unique portrait of this iconic British institution for its 200th birthday.

Founded in Barnsley Rock City in 2006 by their outspoken and energetic ringleader, Scott Doonican, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission!


 Far from being your typical folk ensemble, this cult-like collective of like-minded knit-wear enthusiasts are determined to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive. Scott and his brothers-from-other-mothers, Alan, J.R., Mo-Jo and Dave, have quite the talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new satirical comedy lyrics, on folk instruments, and to complete their outrageously understated image, the Doonicans have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of sexy knitwear, and instantly memorable for their lairy, no-holds-barred, anarchic live shows.


A group that is both perpetually on the move, ever-evolving and joyously independent, they have played close to 1300 side- splitting shows to date, and have brought smiles and belly- laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glastonbury to Glasgow. They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “The Lady In Greggs”, "How Deep Is Your Glove?", "Paint 'em Back", "Goat Yoga", and “If I Could Punch A Face... It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.


The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican can’t wait to bring their shindig to The Beehive for their 18th Birthday and they promise that they WILL rock you... but gently!!



They deserve the reputation they have earned as one of the festival scene's hottest bookings."

Nostalgic Cinema: The African Queen (1951) (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: The African Queen (1951)

Directed by John Huston

Starring Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley

Duration 115 mins.


Nostalgic Cinema events are kindly sponsored by Home Instead Exeter & East Devon – providers of officially outstanding home care across our community.


After religious spinster's (Katharine Hepburn) missionary brother is killed in WWI Africa, dissolute steamer captain (Humphrey Bogart) offers her safe passage. She's not satisfied so she persuades him to destroy a German gunboat. The two spend most of their time fighting with each other rather than the Germans. Time alone on the river leads to love.




Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Simon & Garfunkel :Through The Years (24)



Seventh Avenue Arts presents:


Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years


Critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years continues to delight audiences across the globe. Featuring stunning vocal harmonies from world-class musicians, this spectacular concert transports you on a journey through the epic songs and history of the much-loved Simon and Garfunkel. “One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world”


Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster The show is a celebration of the unprecedented rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York, who went on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone, and receiving 10 Grammy Awards. In 1981, they performed to over half a million people in their hometown of New York, and in 1990 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


Collectively known as Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years since its creation in 2011. Much like their idols, they became friends at school and could not resist singing together from a tender age.


Alongside stops in London’s West End, the show has toured extensively around the UK, Europe, United States and Australia, attracting packed houses night after night. With consecutive sell-out runs since 2014 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, they are championed as "one of the best vocal groups touring today", whose sounds are ‘’simply breathtaking’’.


Featuring all the major hits such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the iconic Bridge Over Troubled, don’t miss out on this phenomenal show.

Fritillaries

Fritillaries

Fritillaries

Running time: 1 Hour 10 minutes


Fritillaries is the original project of contemporary folk songwriter Hannah Pawson, a Bristol-based musician using guitar, banjo and harmonium. Taking her name from the Snake’s Head Fritillary, a flower of rebirth and hope, Hannah weaves worlds into her songs.


Whilst Hannah has been honing her songwriting and live performances since 2017, the arrival of her 2022 debut album resulted in her gaining much well earned attention and acclaim. Having performed as a duo for many years, Hannah’s future focus is as a solo artist. Her newer music - soon to be released - explores her relationship to grief, uncertainty and dealing with chronic illness. Living, loving and songwriting can all feel like gardening; bringing something beautiful into the world from the depths of the earth and through complicated root systems.


Fritillaries’ debut album was nominated for FATEA’s debut album of the year for 2022, was Folk Radio UK’s featured album of the month in August 2022, and received reviews from RNR magazine, Folk Radio UK, Folking and Americana UK among other publications. Her music has been featured on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 2, BBC Bristol, BBC Wales and BBC Devon.


Fritillaries have toured extensively in the UK in the last 5 years, headlining notable grassroots venues around the UK, such as Kitchen Garden Cafe (Birmingham), Green Note (London), Cafe #9 (Sheffield), Bristol Folk House, as well as performing at plenty of festivals, (Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, Bristol Folk Festival, Gate to Southwell, Hyde Park Folk Festival) and occasionally doing some international touring.

Where is Mrs Christie?

Where is Mrs Christie?

‘Where Is Mrs Christie?’ starring Liz Grand

Running time: 95 minutes - including an interval



Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly the most prolific. In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction, a series of events which sparked one of the biggest and most extensive police hunts in history.


Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.  


Actor Liz Grand presents her one-woman show ‘Where Is Mrs Christie?’ Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved?  In true thriller style, all will be revealed.


“Liz Grand's performance in the title role is compelling. So persuasive is she that we the audience become co-conspirators. Her Mrs. Christie is irresistibly engaging, vulnerable, confiding and ultimately indomitable in her strength of spirit. It is a master-class in nuanced delivery and dramatic timing, deliberately tantalising, directed unfussily and designed for spot-on period fidelity.” Ian Barge The Stage ****


“It was a pleasure for us and the audience reaction was excellent. With comments like, "great", "marvellous", "so engaging" and “she (Liz Grand) had us totally enthralled from beginning to end” Thanks again. It was an absolute pleasure” Julian Morgan, Tiverton Community Arts

FOS Brothers

FOS Brothers

Introducing the FOS Brothers


The force behind the FOS Brothers has always been Dave and Sam McCrory. Brought up in Belfast during the height of the troubles their sensibilities derive from hard schooling on the streets and strict Northern Irish parents.


Dave left Ireland at the age of 19 and Sam came over 4 years later to form the band, they met Rom Dobbs and have collaborated with him for over 25 years.


Rom's fascination for world music can be attributed to his Dad's influence as head of the music department at Dartington College, however his first taste of gigging was as a drummer for numerous Punk bands.


Pete Bingham is best known for his band Waulk Elektrik who became very popular on the Roots music circuit in the 90’s.


The band move seamlessly from tear jerking Irish ballads to full on Floydian space rock. The FOS Brothers treat their audience to a shared experience and are equally suited to pin drop silence Arts Centres or packed Festival Marquees.

 

They will be performing as a 4 piece during 2024 with occasional guests - Martin Cradick (mandolin and percussion from Baka Beyond, Paul Sax (Violin player from Curved Air) and even Phil Beer (Show of Hands) has been known to join them on stage.


The line up is:

Sam McCrory - Vocals, Guitar

Dave McCrory - Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals

Rom Dobbs - Drums, percussion, samples and loops

Pete Bingham – Bass, Vocals

Sherburn.Bartly.Sanders and Phil Beer

Sherburn.Bartly.Sanders and Phil Beer

An evening with Sherburn.Bartley.Sanders & Phil Beer

Runnign Time: 135 minutes


Sherburn.Bartley.Sanders

Following a chance meeting at Whitby Folk Festival in 1993, Chris Sherburn (Concertina) and Denny Bartley (Vocals and Guitar) have been bringing their unique sound to audiences across Europe and America, creating one of folk music’s most enduring partnerships. Their obvious rapport made them one of the busiest acts on the folk scene, both as a duo and with their well-loved band, Last Night’s Fun. Their soul-stirring songs, exhilarating tunes and quick-witted banter ensures that no two concerts are ever the same.


In 2016, Chris and Denny joined forces with Emily Sanders (fiddle/viola and vocals) and have since become a well-established trio, for the first time blending vocal harmonies, and strings to underpin Chris and Denny’s unique sound, as well as providing a female vocal for some songs, and bringing a repertoire of English folk songs to complement the bands more Celtic roots.


Emily was a founder member of the acclaimed trio Isambarde. She has also toured with Merrymouth (Simon Fowler, Lead Singer of Ocean Colour Scene) and regularly appears with Pete Morton and Chris Parkinson.


Their latest album BEGUILE is the first to feature Chris, Denny and Emily together, and also some stellar guest performances from Martin Simpson and Andy Seward (Kate Rusby Band) and mastered by Phil Beer.


“Chris, Denny and Emily sound good, make you smile and are a great mix – a true chemistry lesson… Superb musicians of the highest order.” Alan Wood, The Barn at Baston


“Sherburn, Bartley and Sanders are a joy to watch… This is what music is meant to be about.” Ant Miles, Downend Folk Club


We are looking to record a new album in 2023 - we will update you as soon as we have more information about this .



Phil Beer


Charming, disarming and exceptionally talented, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene. One-half of award-winning powerhouse Show of Hands, he is equally in demand for his solo shows. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more. Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals.


Alongside some Show of Hands classics, Phil will deliver his signature interpretation of much-loved folk and rock songs alongside a wealth of brand-new material, and there’ll be the odd laugh thrown in for good measure.

Gigspanner Big Band (24)

Gigspanner Big Band (24)

Gigspanner Big Band


New Album Preview Tour


The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music...


Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’


Beginning life as a trio - with legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight being joined by percussionist Sacha Trochet and guitarist Roger Flack - the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin - BBC Folk Awards 'Best Duo') and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, joining the fray.


While Peter Knight, as part of Steeleye Span’s classic 1970s line-up, helped invent a brand of folk rock that is still influential today, John Spiers, has had an equally profound impact on the landscape of traditional music over the last two decades.


Characterised by riotous inventiveness, technically gifted individual playing and subtle collaborative interaction, this coming together of several of the biggest names on the folk-roots scene, combines a deep knowledge of roots traditions with a ceaselessly boundary pushing approach.


Unsurprisingly, the superlatives have come thick and fast..

Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Budapest Cafe Orchestra


Christian Garrick & the Budapest Café Orchestra are:


CHRISTIAN GARRICK – violin, darbuka

EDDIE HESSION – accordion

KELLY CANTLON – double bass

ADRIAN ZOLOTUHIN – guitar, saz, balalaika, domra



In 2009 Christian Garrick established the refreshingly unconventional and snappily attired Budapest Café Orchestra.  The intention to present a broad range of music from all over the world in the most entertaining and fun way.  One of BCO's prime directives is to take the music seriously but not so much themselves.  Part of the secret formula of the BCO's show presentation is performing all the music from memory and, combined their trademark wit and charm, audiences leave tingling with warmth and delight.


BCO are one of the very busiest acoustic groups for me today playing an average of 60 to 70 shows per annum.  Since their inception they have recorded one album every year and in January 2023 made their 14th Pavane (& the whole shebang-bang).  BCO are frequent guests to BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and on Martin’s Handley’s weekend Breakfast programmes.


Each member of the orchestra is a freelance musician in their own right.  Both Eddie and Adrian teach prolifically for budding school-age musicians. Christian is a professor of jazz violin at Guildhall School of Music, Royal Academy of Music, and Royal College of Music in London.


Adrian is curator and director of the Imperial Balalaika Orchestra of Overton (IBOO) who sometimes appear with BCO at special gala concerts.  Both Eddie and Christian are busy session recording the sessions and have each played on a multitude of movies.  Eddie even had an on-screen role in the Nick Cage film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin!


From a musical family with jazz and classical learnings Christian Garrick is musical director of BCO and his influences run far and wide.  He first discovered Hungarian and Romanian folk and gypsy music listening to Sandor Lakatos and Taraf du Haidouks.  Christian’s arrangements for BCO of Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Greig - the so called ‘squeezebox concertos’ - are rooted in BCO folklore.  His arrangements of traditional Gaelic tunes on the album The Gaelic Chronicles was met with critical acclaim with the likes of Cerys Matthews and Mark Radcliffe both championing the disc on their respective radio shows.  Christian is influenced by a range of fiddlers from Grappelli to Stuff Smith to Indian virtuosos L Shankar and L Subramaniam.  Nigel Kennedy, a sometimes collaborator with Christian on stage, described him as “one of my favourite violinists”.  Christian’s own unique hybrid playing style, sheer emotional passion and extraordinary improvisational abilities thrills audiences everywhere.

Soul Traders

Soul Traders

SOUL TRADERS


The Soul Traders story was begun by Den Hegarty in 1999 when he put a band together specifically to play at the grand opening of his local village hall.


Twenty-five years and many reincarnations later the twelve-piece band continues to work and thrive under the mentoring and leadership of Den Hegarty.


Celebrating upbeat Soul and Funk classics from the sixties and seventies, the band’s close four-part harmonies, fearless brass and ruthless back line make for a dance night to challenge your very best boots.


The thing that binds the Soul Traders together is our mutual love of music. We have a very diverse repertoire, showcasing the breadth of diversity within our ranks. At the core of our catalogue, some of the finest northern soul there is to be had (as hinted at in the name). Thrown in alongside, a touch of funk and just a tad of good ol' fashioned bebop, blues and rock 'n' roll.


You can expect a mixture of superbly executed piano riffs, a heaped helping of pumping bass licks, ear tinglingly grooving percussion, some smooth strumming of the ol' six string and some of the finest trumpet blowing and driving saxophones there is to be had. Weave into this supreme musical mix a cornucopia of the most supremely talented singers there is to be seen for miles around, tying a grand virtuosic bow around the package that is The Soul Traders.

CHRISTINE COLLISTER 


‘..boundary breaking is routine for Collister and makes her one of the finest grown-up vocalists on the planet…’ – Q


Touring for the first time in four years, Christine will be performing songs from the

“Children of the Sea” project along with a selection of old favourites.


2024: Christine’s career now spans an incredible 40 years.  Over that bridge of time she has released 24 albums, a DVD celebrating 20 years in the business and an acclaimed single with the BBC: the theme tune for “The Life and Loves of a She-Devil” in 1987.

Throughout, she has mesmerized and astounded with her unique blend of soul, blues, pop, jazz, country and folk, and today she remains as powerful, subtle, effortless and relevant as ever.


Collister grew up on the Isle of Man, and her professional recording career began after she moved to the UK in the mid 1980’s, when she came to national attention singing the theme for the BBC Television series The Life and Loves Of A She Devil. A period of great critical and commercial success when working with Clive Gregson was followed by a fruitful and enduring association with Richard Thompson.


Christine is a magical live performer, with her gravity defying voice, assured and impressive live performances and great personal charm has become a familiar and popular name on the ‘live’ scene including major international festivals from Glastonbury to Cambridge, Winnipeg to Port Fairey.


“ … a voice personally delivered by God.” The Times


‘Christine Collister has a killer voice. As full as Dusty Springfield or as blue as Alison Moyet’ – Froots


To be released in 2024 - Children Of The Sea is a very special project of 9 original songs inspired by Manx Folklore and a magical sense of place. Part funded by the Isle Of Man Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Fledgling Records, The CD is accompanied by a beautiful book complete with lyrics, inspirations and stories with original illustrations by Manx artists. It promises to be Collister’s finest release and marks a turning point in her authentic artistic expression.


Christine has always enjoyed the collaborative process and has been an integral part of many and varied musical projects over the years. Her most recent collaboration with brilliant Australian guitarist Michael Fix has been a successful and delightful surprise for them both.  They released their second CD “North&South” in October of 2019 with a sell out tour of the UK followed by an equally successful tour of the Australian Festival scene in 2020.


‘Christine Collister’s singing was powerful and emotional, shifting effortlessly from soft and angelic to knock you out Janice Joplin style. Michael Fix’s guitar was equally superb. He provided tasteful support in the most charming way and would then explode into amazing virtuoso runs across the finger board, all impeccably tasteful and clean.’

– Troubadour (Woy Woy NSW) concert review, Michael Fine 


Christine’s natural warmth and intimate connection with audiences coupled with her stunning voice, make her concerts delightfully memorable events.

‘…one of the world’s finest..’ – Q


Christine also toured and recorded with the female super group Daphne’s

Flight. In 2017, 21 years after their first collaboration, they released a highly

acclaimed second album: "Knows Time, Knows Change" on Fled’gling Records.

Aging spinster sisters Ursula (Judi Dench) and Janet (Maggie Smith) discover a young man (Daniel Brühl) near death on the beach by their home in a small Cornish fishing village. Taking him in, they discover that he is Andrea, a violinist from Krakow, Poland, who had been swept off an ocean liner on which he was sailing to a fresh start in America. Although Ursula feels an unfamiliar spark of infatuation for the handsome young musician, propriety suggests the attraction must remain unspoken.
