Absent Friends, 28 April

Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends

High Tor Players

Alan Ayckbourn’s comic mastery is brought to the stage by the High Tor Players with the acclaimed comedy ‘Absent Friends’

‘Colin must be comforted in his grief over the death of his fiancee so his friends- who never met the girl- arrange a tea party for him. Understandably they are on edge wondering what to say, but there is more to their unease: Diane and Paul, John and Evelyn, and Marge are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross-marital emotional ties.’   How will all this pan out?  Come to the Town Hall to find out.

Marcus Corbett & Nitin Gaikwad, 24 May

Marcus Corbett & Nitin GaikwadMarcus Corbett & Nitin Gaikwad

East Meets West: An evening of guitar and tabla music

Marcus Corbett is a singer, acoustic guitarist and composer based between the UK and Pune, Maharashtra, India. He has been studying Indian classical music and working with musicians in India for over 10 years, and has released a string of albums, including the most recent two, the acclaimed ‘Strung Deep’ and ‘Every Little Spirit’. His works are a generous spirited cultural collaboration that allows his original compositions to come to life while paying homage to the N. Indian classical tradition he loves. He has created lasting relationships in India with Tabla players, Nitin Gaikwad  from Pune, and these are the foundation of the project and performance.The album ‘Every Little Spirit’ extended the harmonic reach of the music and is an ambitious enterprise as two violins are at work; and as Marcus says “The beautiful challenge in this search is to keep the individual cultural charm, to allow the bell to ring true; and to maintain the power and integrity of the music”. Having toured successfully in Germany and Holland, played around the UK, and gained press attention from all over the world for his previous releases, Marcus’ reputation for his skilful combining of the worlds of Indian Classical and British folk music will inevitably continue to grow, and his status as one of the great explorers of these musical borderlands will continue to be celebrated.
