Lydia Bauman 1st World War Artists and Art

Tuesday 1st July

Food served after lecture

Lecture starts 6:30pm

Tickets £10 including a tea or coffee

A war artist will have depicted some aspect of war through art; this might be a pictorial record or it might commemorate how war shapes lives. A war artist creates a visual account of war by showing its impact as men and women are shown waiting, preparing, fighting, suffering, celebrating.

The works produced by war artists illustrate and record many aspects of war, and the individual’s experience of war, whether allied or enemy, service or civilian, military or political, social or cultural. The rôle of the artist and his work embraces the causes, course and consequences of conflict and it has an essentially educational purpose.

Having played her way around the globe and in venues like Ronnie Scotts in the UK we can safely say that Farrah Joy knows her trade. Farrah brings a sophisticated and eclectic mix of well known soul, blues and Jazz Classics influenced by Dinah Washington, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald among others, we can most certainly expect a thoroughly memorable performance from this Lincoln born artist.

Part pop, part blues, part folk and all-original, she excels at defying definition: the songs vary from delicate strummed strings and soaring melodies to gritty, growly piano power chords and everything in between, and her lyrics, ranging from gently poetic to downright obscure but always immensely powerful, give you food for thought and stay with you long after the first listen.
