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.

Don Vappie and Jazz Creole

Creole-influenced New Orleans music from the 'Jimi Hendrix Of The Banjo'.

Led by Don Vappie, the award-winning Creole banjoist/vocalist from New Orleans. Vappie is a living embodiment of 300 years of New Orleans music embodying all aspects of the unique melting pot of cultures that is New Orleans. Known for being banjoist/guitarist in Winton Marsalis’ Jazz at the Lincoln Centre band, but more importantly his nurturing approach to Creole culture and its preservation. He is widely considered to be one of the best banjoists in the history of New Orleans.

Honouring the tradition of his predecessor, banjoist Danny Barker, Vappie has singlehandedly kept alive Créole songs of New Orleans and has been honoured with awards from Créole society for preserving this cultural treasure.

This US/European project combines all genres of New Orleans from traditional to modern day funk with the classic early tradition of a string band. The result is 'Jazz Créole'.

Don is winner of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize 2021 and was inducted into the Banjo Hall of Fame 2022.

Features UK clarinetist David Horniblow of formally the Chris Barber band and recently The Dime Notes, guitarist Dave Kelbie of The Dime Notes, Django a la Creole and accompanist to many musicians worldwide, and from Paris bass player Sebastien Girardot of Django a la Creole fame.

Nominated for 'The best of the beat' in Offbeat magazine and The Sunday Times Jazz Album of the Year 2020! 

'He can start the party with his banjo, he sure can!' Iggy Pop

'A sure taste and a remarkable technique' Swing Fr

'it’s about time someone showed the jazz world what the banjo really can do' The Observer
