Klezmer-ish: 3 November

Klesmer-ishKlezmer-ish: 3 November

Klezmer-ish is what happens when four classically trained musicians from the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra  let down their hair, explore a wide range of music from travelling people across the world and fuse it all together with their own unique sound. Join us on our musical journey! See a fantastic video here…

Klezmer, Tangos, Gypsy Jazz, Irish Fiddle Music…..

Tom Verity (clarinet, bass clarinet, Irish whistle):

Tom is assistant principal clarinet of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and a member of the Sterling Trio. In his free time he loves playing jazz piano.

“The fusion of our rigorous background as classical musicians with our passion for exploring exciting new musical territories is what makes us special”

Rob Shepley (all sorts of guitars, violin)

Rob is the Sub Principal Viola of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and teaches at the LIPA. Late at night he gets his Violin and guitar out and plays in bands like the Gipsy Jazz Band “Swingology” or the old school rock band “Non Commitments”

“Klesmer-ish is a new chamber music direction for us in the RLPO. We are excited to explore klezmer, tango, jazz and folk…. In fact ‘World music’. “

Concettina Del Vecchio (piano accordion)

Connie is a member of the first violins of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra but she started her musical career on the piano accordion aged 3. She teaches at Chetams school of music.

“As members of a symphony orchestra we work in an incredibly hierarchical structure…No such thing with Klezmer-ish. No boss! All equals. No rules or regulations. It is all led by the music, and by the mutual respect we have for each others’ talent.”

Marcel Becker (double bass)

Marcel is the leader of the double bass section of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. He used to play in the Bossa Nova quartet “Sarrava!”, was the founder of the salon orchestra “Jac Grit” and loves dancing Salsa. He recently performed the UK premier of Tan Dun’s double bass concerto “The Wolf” with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Mawkin: 17 November

Mawkin bring muscular folk to BakewellMawkin

Channelling Bellowhead and Fairport

In 2015 Mawkin delivered their self-produced and critically acclaimed album ‘The Ties That Bind’. Their ‘unapologetically energetic’ approach and DIY ethic surprised critics, fans and welcomed new audience members describing them as a ‘modern day Fairport’. With a host of rebel rousing folk songs and instrumentals the band modernise traditional folk material with their own touch and have since excited audiences with their artillery of loud, boisterous, foot stomping live sets. Critics of the album suggested that Mawkin might fill the ‘Bellowhead shaped hole’ so it seemed only natural to support them on their farewell tour of 2016 among a flurry of key festivals and UK tour dates.

The band members have a wealth of other musical experience between them with brothers David and James’s involvement with Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson, Jim Moray, Topette!, and the two providing stand-in support for members of Bellowhead. Nick Cooke is Kate Rusby and False Lights’ melodeon player, is a professional mastering engineer and has worked with some of the most iconic producers in our lifetime. Lee Richardson, who’s former background was in dance music, is an award winning producer of TV, advertising and trailer music.

The band’s line-up is:James Delarre: Vocals, Violin; David Delarre: Vocals, Guitar; Nick Cooke: Melodeon; Danny Crump: Bass; Lee Richardson: Drums
‘Masculine, Muscular Folk Quintet’ – The Independent
‘A Gutsy re-working of Traditional Songs’ – The Guardian
‘Unconditionally Mighty’ – MOJO
‘Invigorating, Highly Inventive’ – Q Magazine
