Dean Owens with Jim Maving

There are no scheduled instances of Dean Owens with Jim Maving. You can view similar events below.

Award winning Scottish singer songwriter Dean Owens is one of UK’s finest troubadours, with fans including authors Irvine Welsh and Ian Rankin, and BBC legend Bob Harris.

Hard to pin down to a particular genre, his music is a unique blend of Scottish roots and Americana – the unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s best storytellers. A compelling performer, with a searingly soulful voice that is warm, subtle and powerful.

He’s joined by regular collaborator, guitar maestro Jim Maving (Case Hardin, Don Gallardo), on electric, delta slide and mandolin. Two outstanding live performers, their gigs are marked by a joyous onstage chemistry, and exuberant standing ovations.

Dean’s music has taken him all over the world, particularly across the USA, where he has made most of his eight solo albums, including the celebrated Sinner’s Shrine (2022), recorded with 'desert noir' legends Calexico, adding some Latin/mariachi tones to his musical palette.

Steve Nieve and Kessada - Stories of Love

Steve Nieve and Kessada invite you to Stories of Love - with songs by Tom Waits, Neil Young, Elvis Costello and themselves.

Steve Nieve member of the rock and roll hall of fame, and a Grammy winning Artist, has been playing keyboards for Elvis Costello for more than thirty years, firstly as a member of The Attractions, and in more recent times with The Imposters. Perhaps the most intimate and riveting performances, however, were those where Elvis and Steve toured together creating a spellbinding tour-de-force of piano, guitar and voice.

Anybody who has witnessed these or indeed any of Elvis Costello's live shows will appreciate the special magic that occurs when Steve Nieve is let loose to solo on the piano.

Get to experience a full evening of this magic as Steve and his incredibly talented friend, vocalist and drummer Kessada, bring you 'Stories Of Love' and transport the Immobile Tour to your hometown. After one hundred plus online shows since the pandemic began, on Facebook and Instagram, you already know to expect the unexpected from this musical pair of lunatics.

For 'Stories of Love' you will hear songs and anecdotes around Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, and others. Naturally, Kessada and Steve will also dig deep into their own growing catalogue of songs. A great new concert to discover.

The Shock of the Old by Terence Blacker

Terence Blacker has been stressing over how to grow old happily and with style ever since he got his bus pass.

Months of lockdown have not improved his age-anxiety one bit. Looking around, he has discovered that the world is every bit as muddled about age in the 21st century as he is.

Just when you’re getting going in your life, it happens. You catch sight of your father in the mirror and realise that it’s you. You start listening to your old Mungo Jerry albums. You feel the need to contact school friends you haven’t seen for years – even the ones you never liked. You join the National Trust.

Is this it? The start of a slow slide into Oldsville - comfy slippers, fussing over your breakfast cereal, talking at the TV, with the occasional Saga cruise thrown in as a treat?!

In his funny and perceptive new show, Terence faces up to the joys and pains of the passing years with songs, quotes, and anecdotes. It’s as if Victor Meldrew met Tom Lehrer for a none-too-serious debate about the meaning of life.

The result is a spirit lifting and timely celebration of the art of not taking the ageing process lying down - about being, in the words of one of Terence's songs, 'not quite done'.

Does The Shock of the Old finally reveal the great secret of the coming of age? Possibly not, but Terence Blacker shares a world of fun, warmth and wisdom looking for it.

'A bitter-sweet - and yet ultimately life-affirming - show, full of humour and terrific songs (with wonderful guitar-playing), giving two fingers up to old age. Even if you hobble in, you’ll leave with a spring in your step' Virginia Ironside, Journalist, Agony Aunt and Author

'Melodic, funny, and with a touch of melancholy, Terence Blacker’s Shock of the Old blends sharp, knowing comedy with cracking tunes. You’re in for a treat' Craig Brown, Satirist
