Friday 21st June sees The Carnival Band performing at the Community Centre. Tickets are £12 in advance and £15 on the door. Children's tickets are £5.
A Carnival Band concert is a kaleidoscope of instrumental and vocal colour, crossing continents, travelling through time, and bending the rules
Between them the band’s musicians have a track record in folk, contemporary, classical, baroque, medieval and Arabic music. Moving effortlessly from one to another they add a sprinkling of rock, world music and theatricality for extra flavour. Their own songs draw on this rich palette, perfectly complementing the music of earlier centuries and other cultures and bringing their repertoire right up to date.
From the vibrant blare of shawms, bagpipes and electric guitar to the seductive tones of Turkish clarinet and fiddle and the enchanting delicacy of the renaissance cittern, The Carnival Band mix and match their collection of over twenty instruments, adding vocal harmony to create an astonishing range of sounds.
We have been lucky to have had Sheila come into the cafe and demonstrate the ways to pot up and on and so our next talk will be 7th May. Mick from Rhos Market Garden will be in to talk about growing organic Veg.
These talks coincide with our Garden Market. This includes plant sale and seed swap. Please see poster below.
