Breaking Glass 40 Years On-Hallelujah!
“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” Telegraph
The first major female star of the 80’s, award-winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame exactly forty years ago in 1980 starring in the film 'Breaking Glass'. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel's ageless songs include 'Eighth Day', 'Will You', 'Big Brother', 'Monsters in Disguise', 'Calls The Tune', 'If Only', 'Give Me An Inch', 'Blackman' and 'Hanging Around' - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times.
Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie), Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) keyboards and Tony Qunta (Odyssey/Edgar Winter) on guitar. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat.
“It's all there, that voice, soaring sax …timeless.” Glastonbury Festival

Phil Beer together with Sound of the Sirens in a Special Double Header event.
When given the opportunity to be together for this unique evening of music Phil, Abbe and Hannah leapt at the opportunity and they are all very much looking forward to it.
Phil is one half of folk supergroup Show Of Hands and is in much demand as a multi-instrumentalist and producer and has been described by the Guardian as 'where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide'. He was nominated for the coveted Musician of the Year title in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler, but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals. All are songs and music of memory and significance, sung in the subtle and melodic Phil Beer style and interjected with musings and amusings to an almost personal audience.
Phil will open the show and comes to the Beehive as part of the 'So Much to Choose From' 2020 Tour. The solo shows for 2020 will be the last time Phil undertakes such a large number of performances and aim to encapsulate the last 40 years of his songs and music.
He will then be joined on stage by Sound of the Sirens and part of the show will be them making music together.
Sound Of The Sirens are Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood. They combine agile guitar-playing, soaring harmonies and lyrical, heartfelt songwriting to make lushly melodic music. They released the critically acclaimed album This Time in early 2019 on independent label DMF Records. In Spring 2020 they will be playing a number of headline shows before playing festivals throughout the Summer.
“’This Time’ is a collection of moments, emotions, challenges and stories,” say the duo. “We’ve collected lyrics, melodies and ideas from the past couple of years for this project. We created this album last winter in an isolated barn in Wales with only guitars, a piano, wine and the dogs for company. The themes of time, love, loss, perseverance, hope and clarity are intertwined in these songs.”
Abbe & Hannah are very much looking forward to working with Phil again:-
"We are so excited to be sharing the evening with Phil Beer. He is always so lovely to work with. We managed to share a stage at Exeter Respect a couple of years ago and then borrowed his skills at Cottingham Folk Festival. Fingers crossed we get to play a few songs with him again this time.
We can't wait x"
The last part of the evening will be Sound of the Sirens on their own.
Saturday 13 June 2020 performance has been rescheduled to Friday 26 February 2021. If you have pre-booked tickets, they will be valid for the new date.

The Beyond the Horizon Tour with support from Jordan Jane
The True Strays are a vintage loving, blues fuelled, dirty rock and roll band. Their live shows are a joyous hoedown of huge bass driven riffs, a howling tornado of resonator guitar, cacophonous drums and soaring Hammond organ.
Influences span the history of modern music with great admiration for the delta blues of the 40s and 50s, British Invasion and Psychedelic Rock of the 60s and 70s, Southern Rock and Soul and modern age Punk, Rock and Blues artists. Blues music is at the heart of everything they do but their sound isn’t bound to those rules or that genre. Influences include greats like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Pink Floyd and more recent punk and rock and roll bands like Nirvana, QOTSA and Idles.
True Strays have made Bristol their home recently, after a previous band disintegrated after 5 years hard work. Determined to never be in that situation again, the True Strays was formed with the ambition that this band would last. With a new set of songs and hopes in their suitcases, the band set off doing what they knew best; playing live. A real road band, they took any show they could, busked relentlessly, and shared their songs with anyone that would listen. Regularly collaborating with old band mate Matthew Cooke and some of Bristol finest keys session players, the bands sound expanded and found new direction.
