HAIKU SALUT CHRISTMAS LAMP SHOW – 15 & 16 December, 8pm

Back at St John’s for the third (and fourth!)  time, Haiku Salut are a unique proposition, sweeping between all-manner of genres but never losing the soft focus of the inspired instrumentals that provide their back-bone. Rising from minimal, glitchy pop songs into moments of distinct and awe-inspiring grandiosity, the band match the intensity of their recorded sound with a mightily fetching, and suitably dramatic live show. If you’ve not seen the lamp show before, you’re in for a dazzling, exhilarating treat. The trio perform with a stageful of vintage lamps which are programmed to...

COLLEEN + SLOWS: 9 December, 8pm

French multi-instrumentalist Colleen (Cécile Schott) is fearless in her willingness to explore new sounds and new ways of creating music as a solo performer. On her new album A flame my love, a frequency, out October 20th, she introduces the most drastic change to her music since she began singing on her fourth album, setting aside the viola da gamba she is known for in exchange for all electronic instrumentation – Moog pedals and Critter and Guitari synthesizers. The music of A flame… is the closest Colleen has come to a concept album, a reflection upon one year in her life that...

Gigspanner – 23 November, 7.30pm

Tickets £15.40 here “Peter Knight’s Gigspanner were amazing. I can only think of a handful of folk musicians world-wide that have the kind of relationship with their instrument that Peter Knight has: Martin Hayes, Enda Scahill, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker, Martin Simpson. Many people as they trickled out into the night said that this was one of the best gigs they’d ever been to. I’d agree with that. If you get a quarter of a chance to see them, go – there were people there last night who had travelled many miles to be there. It was well worth every mile” Mike Harding :...
