Live Music : Alden Patterson and Dashwood

Norwich based folk / Americana trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies. The independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ was written and produced at home in Norwich and is lovingly presented in attractive handmade covers, designed and hand-printed by the band. Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. They release their much-anticipated debut album ‘Call Me Home’ on 7th November 2016 with an accompanying UK tour.

WWII’S Great Escapes: The Freedom Trails with Monty Halls

In this exclusive talk Monty Halls reveals the story behind the filming of Channel 4’s hit series 'WWII’s Great Escapes - The Freedom Trails.’ Monty and the film crew trekked through some of the most dramatic terrain in Europe, following in the footsteps of servicemen and women attempting to escape Nazi occupation. The escapees were helped along the way they were helped by local people - at huge risk to themselves - and the series also met and interviewed the civilians, partisans and resistance fighters who made the trails a reality.
The talk describes the routes themselves - through the stunning Appenine Mountains of Italy, the stark beauty of the Pyrenees, and the forests of Slovenia. Using images and footage from the series, it tells tales of heroism, endurance, sacrifice and humanity. Described by the media as “tv Gold” and “unmissable” and on social media as “the tv event of the year”, the talk tells the stories behind the making off the series, revealing remarkable new facts about the escapees, the trails, and the people who helped them. 
The presentation shows previously unseen footage, as well as images taken throughout the filming process. The presentation is ideal for anyone who watched the series, or those who enjoy trekking some of the most spectacular trails in Europe, or indeed anyone interested in heroism and sacrifice. After the talk Monty will also be signing books of the series “Escaping Hitler - Stories of Courage and Endurance on the Freedom Trails
All proceeds from this event will go to Anna Bromley’s justgiving page

This is music rooted in the folk ballads and traditional tunes imported to the USA by immigrants from the British Isles.

Music made famous in the recordings of The Skillet Lickers, Charlie Poole and The Carter Family to name just a few.

Expect furious breakdowns, nonsense songs, fiddle and banjo tunes and cautionary ballads of love and loss.

‘The Fordsons … excellent!’ - Pete Lawrence, Founder of the Big Chill and Campfire Convention

‘As good as being back in Virginia’ - audience member, Knighton

‘Perfect entertainment’ - private party host, Mid-Wales...

Live Music : Jally Kebba Susso + Band!

If there is one name to look out for in 2017 in African funk music it is Jally Kebba Susso and his band Manding Sabu.

The kora is the traditional harp of the griot of West Africa and Jally Kebba was born and raised into 74 generations of this Gambian musical heritage. But he is not your ordinary griot.

Forging a new trajectory of sound for the West African harp, Jally Kebba skilfully blends the traditional repertoire into his own heady-jazz concoction that is immediately accessible and uplifting and yet filled with nuances and intoxicating rhythmical layers that give the music depth and intrigue.

Raised in a household of musicians, Jally Kebba was exposed to incredible musicianship from a very early age and under the guidance of his father Bully Suso, a very well-respected kora player and his elder brothers by 13 he was touring internationally across Europe.

He honed his own sound over years of experimentation on the London underground scene since 2002 when he relocated to UK. In 2007 he formed his band Manding Sabu and has since released two albums of original compositions - Banjul-London (2017) and Malaye Warr (2012) and gigged extensively.

Expect an electric stage show. With ease and confidence, this band connects. Precision, speed and a merciless energy characterise their performance style making them solid crowd-pullers at festivals such as Wilderness, Shambala and Secret Garden Party in UK. Songs are sung in Mandika and are songs of praise and love and are a timely call for togetherness and solidarity, palpable to all language speakers.

If you enjoy afrobeat and funk, and need a good dance session, you’ll find yourself in good company - to experience the kora as you’ve never seen it before.
