Habeas Corpus: 12 May

Habeas Corpus by Alan BennettHigh Tor Players present…

Habeas Corpus by Alan Bennett, 12 May

Mismanaged lust – mistaken identity – dropped trousers…’Habeas Corpus’ has all the ingredients of a classic farce, spiced with the warmth and humanity of Alan Bennett’s razor-sharp wit.

In a satirical merry-go-round, we meet a family and acquaintances for whom the determination to put sex and the satisfactions of the body (or corpus) before everything else is the ruling passion of their lives. The permissive society is taken to task in a farcical comedy in which the characters move about through a maze of mistaken identities and sexual encounters. This is Alan Bennett at his comedic best.

Master of blues guitar comes to Bakewell

Martin Harley is a supremely talented Roots and Blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation. He’s a devotee to the music that came out of the Mississippi Delta, the slide guitar, and many other forms of roots music. Though Harley’s sound is rooted in the blues it seeks to tell his own story and draws on the ruminations of a musician who has spent much of his life on the road.

“Harley offers the listener a masterclass in taste, style and roots blues” – Guitarist Magazine

“Harley has it all – voice, guitar artistry and the songs” – Total Music

“No doubt that he is a slide guitar master. He is the business” – Roots Magazine

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
‘Unapologetically Energetic’ – Songlines Magazine
‘A wholly edgier version of folk’ – Cambridge News
‘The Pogue-ish sound that resides in young men’s heads’ – The Independent
