Simon Mayor and Hilary James

Friday 28 July - 8pm

Simon Mayor is one of the world’s foremost mandolinists (and composers for the instrument) as well as being a witty and entertaining presenter.

Hilary James is best known for her ‘elegant singing’ (The Daily Telegraph) which easily crosses the great musical divides from big band jazz to traditional ballads, blues and Berlioz.

The Mayor/James Duo - If the duo have a speciality, it is an ability to combine a truly diverse array of talents into a hugely entertaining stage show. there can’t be many performers who slide easily from a beautifully evocative Irish ballad into a mandolin and guitar version of Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, and then have the audience singing one of their own notoriously comic children’s songs, but it’s this wry sense of humour and an easy, informal stage manner that holds it all together.

Just fantastic to go and see live’ - BBC Radio 3

A witty and captivating mix of folk, blues, swing and classical showstoppers, spiced with a unique brand of off-beat humour.’ - The Guardian

A whole stream of mirthful anecdotes, blurry-fingered precision and sweetly sung blues, standards and folk songs’ - Glasgow Herald

Doors open at 7.15pm.
