On August 14th (yes it’s the middle of the holidays but that’s when they could all get here!) at 7.30 we welcome back Edward Shaw and his “string quartet plus clarinet” STRINGENDO for a gala classical concert. This is to raise funds for the land purchase, and the Shaw family, to whom we extend grateful thanks – are arranging for this to be an evening to remember – classical music, chilled wine, light refreshments – and if we’re lucky a chance to view the newly acquired garden to the rear of the Tolmen Centre.
A superb mix of jazz, folk and celtic crossover music – taking the audience on a bewitching journey full of melodic grace and inventiveness The line-up features award-winning songwriters Pippa Marland and Rob King and London jazz piano legend Geoff Castle, inspirational Irish guitarist and vocalist Paul Bradley and virtuoso fiddle player Gina Griffin.

A pared-down version of her 8-piece band Gabby Young and Other Animals, the duo consists of Gabby Young and guitarist Stephen Ellis, who present their unique blend of jazz, burlesque, gypsy folk and swing. Gabby says “we call it circus jazz, but you have to come and see us to know what that means”. Gabby’s quirky and colourful couture is as daring and different as her music.
The Duo has toured the Middle East. Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA. They have recently supported top international French stars Bridget and Zaz, and the girl band Katzenjammer from Norway. Now working together on their third album, they are engaged to be married in Spring 2016.
“Elements of music hall, opera, big band jazz and foot-stomping folk are all poured in to the mix with Gabby’s incredible vocal gymnastics holding it all together” (The Sun)
“Words cannot describe the plethora of varying sensations Gabby bestowed upon her salivating audience. Gabby Young must be seen live and in full technicolour.” (Kentishtowner)
