In support of Relay for Life Cancer Research Lincolnshire we’re very pleased to welcome back this unique duo who have stretched the boundaries of what can be done in the acoustic blues genre, by creating the sound of a five piece band played by only two members. Using live looped bass lines they combine harps, guitar, vocals and floor stomp box to give a full band sound.
We’re delighted to welcome back this acoustic roots duo, who will take you on a joyous musical journey mixing elements from world, folk and jazz. Featuring music from New Orleans, Cuba, Brazil and Eastern Europe, as well as cajun, bluegrass and boogie. Between the two of them they carry with them more instruments than the average orchestra.
This summer, Tate Britain presents a major exhibition of landscapes by the much-loved British painter L.S. Lowry – the first of its kind held by a public institution in London since the artist’s death. Focusing on the best of Lowry’s urban scenes and industrial landscapes , this timely and carefully selected exhibition aims to re-assess Lowry’s contribution to art history and to argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city.
