There are still some tickets available for the welcome return of Simon Mayor and Hilary James to Beverley with A Riot of Music and Humour.
Simon is one of the world’s leading mandolin virtuosos. His many-faceted career includes his own series on BBC Radio 2, an album in the Classic FM Top Ten chart and causing mayhem at a Canadian humour festival.
His first anthology of poems, limericks and anecdotes are called ‘Of Death and a Banana Skin’. Illustrations and augmented reality animations are by Hilary James.
Hilary James is “One of Britain’s finest voices” (BBC Radio 4).
With a top ten album of the year in The Sunday Times, BBC Radio 2 playlisting and a voice that easily crosses the great musical divides from folksong to blues, Irving Berlin and Berlioz, Hilary James has travelled the globe from Los Angeles to Singapore. She’s illustrated a variety of CDs and books for both children and adults. A fine guitarist, she is also famed for an unusual taste in bass instruments, including her amazing bass mandolin.
Community arts officer June Mitchell said;
“Virtuoso mandolin, elegant vocals, guitar and fiddle wizardry, and a stage show that ranges from witty to hilarious. Expect anything from a Vivaldi concerto, trad folk, jazz standards, Celtic, ragtime, blues and, of course, that song about the parrot.”
Tickets cost: Adults £15, Concessions £13, all children under 14 FREE with a full paying adult, additional children £5, and are available from Beverley Library or call 01262 678258 or visit bridspa.com
