Stromm @ Market Place
Jun 3 @ 11:00 – 13:00

About Stromm

Stromm are Ross Mitson (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Claire Kidman (vocals), Kate Ross (bass) and Stuart Paterson (drums).  They write and perform music with an emphasis on songwriting.  Their sound is a satisfying brew of exquisite harmonies, catchy melodies and witty, sometimes dark lyrics.
‘Stromm are class, and appeared slightly out of nowhere as all good things do. Poppy, but with a slight baroque darkness in the mix.’  Chad Mason, Co-host Jurnets Music House Acoustic-ish Sessions.

Groovapolitan @ Market Place
Jun 24 @ 11:00 – 13:00

Groovapolitan was formed when bass player Dario Salvi and drummer Chris Griggs got together to recreate the magic sound of the Meters. After a couple of years of gigging in the region and some personnel changes the band moved towards a more commercial sound.

Band members:
Dario Salvi – bass guitar and vocals. Dario has played all over Europe and the USA with his own bands and as backing musician. He plays his funky bass like few others!
James Porter – guitars. James is a very busy guitar teacher with an amazing musical background. His funky guitar is one of the core elements of Groovapolitan’s sound.
Hannah Salvi – trombone and more. Hannah’s musical background included graduating with a Music Production degree as well as performing in many bands and orchestra. Her trombone covers what other bands would use a full brass section to play.
Clare Durrant – vocals. Clare is the voice of the groove. Classically trained and a singing teacher Clare’s musicality and soulfulness brings warmth to the slick sound of the band.
Matt Furness – drums. The latest addition to the band. Matt is a very young musical talent and a very busy musician in the region. His bass drums will keep dancers going all night long.

Black Voices @ Central Hall, Back Lane
Jun 30 @ 19:30

Black Voices

is an all-female a cappella collective.

www.blackvoices.co.uk/video

Formed in 1987 Black Voices has gained a reputation as Europe’s finest female a cappella quintet.

For over 25 years the ensemble has captivated global audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition – an early music form that is based on the ancient folklores and story telling of Africa and the Diaspora and which has impacted on the development of classical and more recent music genres such as blues and jazz.

Drawing inspiration from that rich tradition, Black Voices has developed a unique repertoire and arrangement of spirituals, traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs, jazz, gospel, pop and reggae as well as a fusion of contemporary and classical styles that has earned them world wide recognition as a performance and teaching company.
