Ian Siegal

In more than a quarter century of touring multi-award winner Ian Siegal’s mission statement has barely changed: songs that are real, shows that resonate, vocals served raw. Today he is considered by many to be the most compelling British blues artiste since the great names of the sixties.

Classic Rock tags Siegal 'a national treasure' America’s blues bible says 'vast talent' and MOJO magazine ranks him 'the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK'. He has taken his music to some 50 countries and presided over a trophy haul that includes two UK Blues Awards, 10 British Blues Awards, four European Blues Awards, two Mojo Blues Albums Of The Year not to mention three US Blues Music Awards nominations - an unprecedented nod for a non-American. And that’s just what he has clocked up in the past ten years.

Siegal is known as a bluesman, but it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. They say you can’t sing the blues until you’ve lived the life, and when Ian Siegal steps up to the mic, you can hear the slings and arrows. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees!

Each year his influence spreads further and recently to Brazil; but what sticks most in Ian’s mind is his guest appearance at London’s Jazz Café with 92-year old Pinetop Perkins and other remaining members of Muddy Waters’ band. Then later at a festival in Norway, in a role reversal and totally unexpected, these legends of post-war Blues spontaneously joined Ian on stage for what turned into a memorable hour-long set.

The Benn Clatworthy Quartet

Presented by Norden Farm Jazz Club.

Benn Clatworthy (sax, flute)
Alex Hutton (piano)
Simon Thorpe (bass)
Darren Beckett (drums)

Back by popular demand!

Benn was active in the London Music Scene in the 1970’s and was a protégé of Ronnie Scott. He moved to L.A. California in 1980 where he is now based. He was recommended for Horace Silver’s band and recordings followed. Having skills as a multi-instrumentalist (tenor, alto, baritone sax, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet) he has carved a career in the L.A music scene. He has worked with a huge array of class A musicians from the LA Philharmonic Orchestra to Cab Calloway. However, his main passion is playing Tenor Sax in a quartet setting – and his approach is unique. Playing from the songbook of Blue Note and more contemporary jazz, his tone is extraordinarily beautiful, and his melodic ideas come from the heart. As someone said recently 'It’s as though he’s talking to us and telling us a story through the saxophone!’

What to watch out for – The ballads will be enchanting, the up-tempo songs will be invigorating.

Royal Opera House Live: Madama Butterfly

Running time 195 minutes (including one interval) | Sung in Italian with English subtitles

Puccini’s devastating tragedy about a young geisha who falls in love with an American naval officer.

When the young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, marries American Naval Officer Pinkerton, she believes she is entering a real, binding marriage for life. Forsaking her religion and community, she learns all too late that for Pinkerton, their marriage is merely an illusion – with tragic consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, 'Un bel dì, vedremo' (‘One fine day’) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.

Asmik Grigorian and Hrachuhí Bassénz share the role of Cio-Cio-San, with Kevin John Edusei conducting.

Buenos Klezmer

Buenos Klezmer perform uplifting and heart-warming authentic Jewish folk music of the Eastern European shtetl and Sephardic world.

Vocalist Maya Levy weaves a fascinating tale of these long ago worlds while clarinettist Livia Frankish wails, guitarist Eyal Pik serenades and cellist Mayda Narvey straddles the support of stand up bass and the interweaving melodies. With consistently sold-out performances, this is a foot-stomping, heart-warming band.

'Great gig - brilliant music especially Buenos Klezmer'
'A truly magical evening'
Audience reviews from Tsitsit Fringe Festival at Toulouse Lautrec, London

Buenos Klezmer debuted in 2019 at The Jazz Room, London. The quartet met while playing for Shabbat Shira (a participatory musical Friday night song service to mark the start of the Jewish Sabbath at West London Synagogue). Being all of Jewish background, both Sephardi and Ashkenazi, they decided to form an ensemble to play specifically secular Jewish songs and Klezmer instrumental music. They play Yiddish & Ladino songs and Klezmer, spanning the breadth of Jewish secular music and have performed to sell out audiences at venues including several returns to The Jazz Room, JW3, Green Note Camden and OSO Barnes.

Maya Levy - Soprano
Maya Levy was born in New York City. She is a professional singer, songwriter, actor and theatre deviser/ writer, with a Bachelor of Music from the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory, Ohio, (in piano and voice), a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theatre from Oberlin College as well as an MA from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in Acting and Devised Theatre.

In addition to her work as a Cantorial Soloist at West London Synagogue, her focus of the last 15 years has been on composing pieces of music theatre, song writing and working as a professional performer. Some musical plays include The Adventures of Nellie Bly, about the 19th century reporter and daredevil Nellie Bly (funded by Arts Council England), and The Damsels Most Daring Present The Bravery of Miss Anne and Other Tales of Splendorous Adventures, a piece of comedic, musical, storytelling theatre. Other work ranges from recording NPC voices for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (video game) at Pinewood Studios to performing as a guest soloist with The London International Orchestra. Maya’s grandparents were Sephardi Jews from Bulgaria who spoke Ladino (Judeo Espagnol) at home. She grew up around Yiddish speakers in New York City and loves the traditions of both the Sephardi and Ashkenazi world.

Mayda Narvey - Cello
After some years performing and touring with the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada, Mayda Narvey relocated to the UK where she established Ismena Collective, a group of musicians and wordsmiths who create performances that integrate words with music. She has composed and arranged for Ismena and performed with them in venues across London and beyond, including King’s Place, St. Martin in the Fields, The Forge Camden, and many others. Over the years she has enjoyed playing her cello in many contexts including solo and chamber recitals, spoken word events, cabarets in the West End of London, and of course, as the string member of Buenos Klezmer. The daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants to Canada, Mayda grew up in a Yiddish-speaking home.

'What a breath of artistic fresh air! I was completely bowled over by the standard of musicianship, the elegance of the programming and the relaxed joyously friendly atmosphere.' Audience reviews, Ismena Collective

She was fortunate enough to study with Merlin Shepherd, one of the world's leading exponents of traditional klezmer clarinet style and has performed with internationally celebrated cantor, Shulem Lemmer.

Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash

Martin Turner and his band return to the stage to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Wishbone Ash’s seminal double live album Live Dates.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve
Upton. They were intent on creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody. Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark. Guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert.

The Lost Trades

An exciting Folk and Roots Trio who recently released their second album Petrichor.

The Lost Trades are a vocal harmony trio with a cool Laurel Canyon vibe. Three Wiltshire based singer songwriters (Jamie R Hawkins, Phil Cooper and Tamsin Quin) were brought together by a mutual love of modern folk and roots music, and joined forces in late 2019 for a three part harmony, modern folk adventure.

With a sound that is reminiscent of the California folk scene of the late 60s/early 70s, their vocal harmonies have been described as flawless, spine tingling and magical.

After a global pandemic cut short their first tour after just a single sold out gig, the band retreated to their songwriting rooms to work on their debut album, 'The Bird, The Book & The Barrel'. The album was released in June 2021 and was well received, spending 8 months in the Official UK Folk Albums Chart.

The follow up 'Petrichor' was released in March 2023 and immediately followed suit, entering the chart at #31.

A live performance involves easy interchanging of instruments, with each of the three playing guitar, bass and percussion at different points. There's always a fun intimacy to the show, with the three engaging in comfortable repartee with each other and the audience like a group of old friends.

Magic Violin

Balkan Music from Danube Regions with Drops of Ottoman.

This performance features Eastern European and Balkan music from the Danube regions with influences of Ottoman culture. Starting at the source of the Danube in Donaueschingen, Germany, which is only 200 kilometers away from Gundula's place of origin, the musical journey of the evening will take us through Vienna and Budapest, all the way to the Black Sea in Ukraine and Romania. We will focus on pieces with hints of Ottoman influence, and the Blue Danube waltz will not be performed.

Band leader Gundula has been exploring the music of the Gypsy Romany people in Eastern European and Balkan regions for more than 20 years. During her frequent fieldwork travels, she collects pieces and delves into their musical and ethnographical backgrounds. From these traditional tunes, Gundula crafts musical arrangements that preserve the archaic elements and the ancient beauty of the traditional music.

The focus of her research for 2022/2023 has been music from the Danube regions with influences from the Ottoman era, as well as more recent Turkish influences. One can find traces of Ottoman elements in terms of modes, rhythmic and melodic structure, and ornamentation. More recent Turkish influences are also present, with Balkan Romany musicians learning from the famous Turkish Romany virtuosos who are masters of improvisation. Their distinct style of playing can be heard in both traditional music and in modern Turbofolk and Chalga music genres.

There was also the sunken island of Adah Kaleh, located near Orșova, Romania. It was almost entirely populated by Turkish people. It was submerged in 1970 when the Danube dam was built. Before that, the Turkish population had emigrated, but apart from some Baklava and rose oil, certain musical influences were left behind.

About the Magic Violin Trio
In a story told through music, The Magic Violin Trio transport the listener through countries and cultures performing Eastern European and Balkan folk and Gypsy music. Influenced by musical traditions of old, the trio of strings and singer bring a fresh and charismatic feel to their performances.

The Magic Violin Trio comprises of Gundula on lead vocals and violin, Jeremy Halliwell on guitar, and Fraser Perry on cello and backing vocals. They evolved in 2020 from the string players of Gundula’s 5-piece Balkan ensemble Tatcho Drom, when Corona restrictions meant only three players were allowed in the rehearsal space.

When arranging pieces for the trio, Gundula takes the inspiration by old Balkan music traditions and their string line-ups, comprising of instruments like the tambura, oud and balalaika. Her aim is to write fresh arrangements that preserve the reminiscent of age-old practice and its magic.

The Magic Violin Trio isn’t bound by genre; they bring their deft approach to a breadth of musical styles. Anything goes that contains magic and their repertoire consists of not only Balkan/Eastern European but also pieces from Silk Road regions and Ottoman times, Nordic folk, Klezmer and old-fashioned jazz tunes.

The Magic Violin Trio have had the pleasure of playing many different kinds of venue; from concerts at large conference centres and churches to more modest studio theatres, art cafes and dinner receptions, their unique, intimate sound is perfectly suited to any sophisticated setting. Amongst their roster of current performance projects is a collaboration with Storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton, and From Weddings and Funerals, a performance repertoire that features a roller-coaster of joy, exuberance, melancholy and transition.
