Sari Schorr Band
Date: 16th March 2019
Details:  “A Force of Nature” the debut album from one of today’s most exciting blues-rock singers, was produced by the legendary Mike Vernon, whose credits include Fleetwood Mac, The Blues Breakers, Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Eric Clapton and Peter Green. In 2015, while in Memphis, Tennessee, to receive The Blues Foundation’s Keeping the Blues Alive Award. Vernon witnessed a performance by Schorr and was so knocked out that he came out of semi-retirement to produce her.

Already a consummate songwriter in her own right, with tracks on major labels, Sari wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs on the album. The album features the stunning blues guitarist Innes Sibun (formerly of Robert Plant’s band), who is the driving force behind Sari’s new band, The Engine Room. The album also features the incomparable Walter Trout, performing his great song “Work No More”

Schorr gained prominence in the blues world through tours with blues legend Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist Popa Chubby, and was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

“During her performances her vocal range and delivery are a compelling combination that just holds your attention right from the start, casting a spell over the audience that is incredible to witness.” – Blues Matters

“Schorr is undoubtedly a find, writing strong songs in a range of styles, with interesting lyrics. Vocally she has the goods to do justice to that range too, with a bluesy voice that can deliver both power and delicacy. The partnership with Innes Sibun is a winner too.” – Blues Enthused

I Wish I Was A Mountain (11:30am)
Date: 31st March 2019
Details:  “…a wonderful gift for language, a deep sensibility and a penetrating sense of perspective.”
Sir Ken Robinson.

On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visit. A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.

Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I was a Mountain uses rhyme, live music, and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy to boldly reimagine Herman Hesse’s classic fairytale. Do we really need the things that we need? What do mountains feel? How did time begin? Adults are kindly requested to leave all answers to these questions at the door. Children, come as you are.
