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 with support act Phil Beer

Running 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



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.


“A Phil Beer gig is one spent in the company of a true craftsman, a master musician and consummate performerSpiral Earth.

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

Christine Collister

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.

The Military Wives Choir at Christmas

The Military Wives Choir at Christmas
The Lympstone Military Wives Choir at Christmas with the Ottery St Mary Silver Band  - Sponsored by Co-op Funeral Care Honiton.

Running Time: 2  to  2 & 1/2 hours

Paul Grainger from Co-op Funeral Care Honiton, is well known for his fundraising  Christmas Carol Concerts, and this year Paul  has gone bigger than ever before. Tonight's show will feature the fantastic Lympstone Military Wives choir and the Ottery St Mary Silver Band. This years beneficiaries are The Beehive (Supported by the Coop in 2023/24) & Barnardo's. Donations will also be made to tonight's choir and band.

Join us for a fabulous night of Christmas Songs and Festive Music, ending with much loved Christmas Carols for all to sing along to!

Lympstone Military Wives Choir
The Military Wives Choirs is a community of over 2000 women in 72 choirs across the UK and internationally. We come together to celebrate a love of singing and a communal understanding that comes from our members' shared experiences of the Armed Forces.   

We welcome all women whose lives are currently impacted by their military connection; our network supports each other and forms life-changing friendships that lead to new and uplifting experiences through singing. 

  Singing in a choir has been proven to increase wellbeing and improve mental and physical health. With no auditions and no pressure to perform, the Military Wives Choirs gives its members the opportunity to spend time with women that truly understand the challenges associated with military life.

Lympstone MWC was formed in 2011, one of the first choirs to come together after the Gareth Malone TV series. We currently have around 20 members and rehearse on Wednesdays 5.30-7.30 pm in the Gordon Messenger Centre, opposite CTCRM’s main gate. 

We welcome new members at any time.   Contact us at lympstone@militarywiveschoirs.org if you are interested in joining us or booking the choir for an event. 

Ottery St Mary Silver Band
The Ottery St Mary Silver Band was formed in 1920 after a decision was made to move away from the previous set up of a military style concert band including reed instruments as well as brass. This had been the case for many years leading up to the First World War.  Instead, the newly formed band used brass instruments only.  They initially called themselves the Town Band but like many bands in the South of England they later referred to themselves as a Silver Band rather than be likened to the colliery bands of the North.  

 Today's band has a mixture of brass and silver plated instruments  In 2023 the OSM Silver Band celebrated its centenary with a well attended and very successful concert at the Kings School in Ottery. This had originally been scheduled for 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID.  

Although the the traditional brass band contest is not something OSMSB gets involved in these days, it does nonetheless have a busy schedule of engagements during the year including spring and Christmas concert, fetes, church services and carol playing, to to mention the Honiton show and regular summer engagements at Connaught Gardens in Sidmouth.  

 We offer brass class training and main rehearsals are held between 7.30 and 9.30 every Thursday at Escot Village Hall.

St Agnes Fountain (24)

St Agnes Fountain (24)
St Agnes Fountain
Running Time: 150

(Since their first get together, to record the eponymous St Agnes Fountain album in 2001, the quartet; David Hughes, Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie and multi award winning duo Chris While and Julie Matthews, have brought musical invention and laughter to the star-dust atmosphere of the season.

In 2020, David decided to leave the band and very sadly passed away in 2023, he will be sorely missed...


Chris, Chris and Julie will be keeping the Christmas Aggie spirit alive and working as a trio celebrating 22 years together again this year.


This year brings a new 'live' album from the trio, recorded all across the country in 2023 and will be ready for pre-release sales in November.


Although the albums accompany the putting up of a thousand Christmas trees throughout Britain and around the globe as their reputation reaches further afield, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience (tickets were again being sold for this year's tour as the curtain fell last year).


Christmas, as they say, starts with...... St Agnes Fountain... Fa la la la la la la la la!

Chris, Chris and Julie intend to do just that, keeping the Christmas Aggie spirit alive and touring as a trio celebrating 23 years together with some new material, those old Aggie classics and a doff of the fedora to David.


Although the albums accompany the putting up of a thousand Christmas trees throughout Britain and around the globe as their reputation reaches further afield, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience (tickets were again being sold for this year's tour as the curtain fell last year).

Chris While vocals, guitar, bodhran, dulcimer, banjo, darbuka and percussion.

Julie Matthews vocals, piano, guitar, accordion and gazouki


The duo have been nominated ten times in the BBC Folk Awards in the 'Best Song' 'Best Duo' and 'Best Live Act' categories and winning Best Duo in 2009.
