The Dovetail Trio

Presenting England's traditional songs with a bold and fresh approach, The Dovetail Trio explores familiar narratives with infectious energy and a passion for musical heritage.

This collaboration combines the distinctive voices and acclaimed instrumental talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jamie Roberts, BBC Performing Arts Award winner Rosie Hood and Newcastle Folk Degree alumnus Matt Quinn.

The Dovetail Trio’s debut album Wing of Evening was released in September 2015 on RootBeat Records. The album has been well received with 4 star reviews from the Telegraph, R2 and Songlines and national radio play on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3. The album features a number of unusual versions of traditional English songs alongside an American folk story, a traditional Scottish whaling song and even a French/Canadian tune set. Tight vocal harmonies and skilled musicianship make this an exciting debut album.

WHY? 'A combination of richly rounded accented vocals, skin-tight harmonies and sparse yet polished instrumentation' FolkWords

Joan

Presented by Milk, in association with Derby Theatre.

Written by Lucy J Skillbeck.

What happens when a disguise soon becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? An earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, Joan is a refreshing look at Joan of Arc – history’s greatest underdog.

The latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and anarchic cabaret from the multi-award winning Milk Presents and performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, Joan takes the stage as a gutsy gender warrior, dragging up as the men she’s defies.

A fearless solo show, with uproarious songs, exploring what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.

WHY? ‘Defiantly delightful’ ★★★★ The Stage

George Egg: DIY Chef

Award winning comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.

George’s family have banished him to the shed. But he simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be abused and re-purposed!
