Bridge By the Riverside - the Pavone Quartet - Thames Festival Music Series

The Pavone Quartet formed in 2012 and have performed in a number of iconic London locations since, from Borough Market to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.  They are delighted to present a coffee concert of English string quartet music at Sands Films Studios.  The concert will feature works by two English composers with connections to London: Vaughan-Williams, who lived in London as a student at the Royal College of Music in 1890; and Frank Bridge, who also studied at the RCM just nine years later in 1899.

THE NORFOLK BROADS

In the Valley of the Flowers

  • album launch -

Also featuring:

Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith

The Ballina Whalers

 

Join us for a night of music and celebration at the beautiful Sands Films Studios as we launch our debut album, 'In the Valley of the Flowers'.  Featuring performances from Bristol friends Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith, and shanty sensations The Ballina Whalers, as well as squeeze box playing and percussive support from the master of bones playing, Nick Hart.

 

The Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads are a four-piece female ensemble who enjoy singing low-pitched folk songs about love, despair, and dastardly boyfriends.

They bonded over maritime worksongs and failed romances in the alto section of the Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir, deciding to form a girl-group during a long car ride to Cornwall in 2014.  Since then, they have performed their spirited harmonies at festivals and venues in London and further afield, including Wilton’s Music Hall, the Southbank Centre, Folk East Festival 2016, and on board the Cutty Sark.

The Broads supply their repertoire of traditional stories with a very contemporary verve and energy, using old songs to fuel new takes on the lives of women both past and present.

“Young female quartet the Norfolk Broads are strong storytellers…Their close harmonies brought a witty feminist take to a well-curated set of tales of impotence, greedy landlords, and the joys of a single life.”

~ The Guardian

Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith

Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are a highly acclaimed folk duo who play traditional and original music of the British Isles.  

Over the last three years they have built a reputation on the UK folk scene for arresting and moving performances. The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with sensitive musical arrangements and stunning vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.

They have been heavily influenced by the songs and singers of East Anglia, where they both grew up, but their music also reflects the diversity of voices within the folk world.

"To be a great folk singer, you have to be a great storyteller, as Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are clearly aware.  The duo are both fine singers and multi-instrumentalists."

*~ The Guardian*

The Ballina Whalers

The Ballina Whalers are Pete Truin, Jamie Doe and Sam Brookes - three musical barnacles clinging to the creaking hull of a musical tradition stretching back over hundreds of years. Using just their voices they explore ballads, shanties and seafaring songs that tell tales of whaling ships, lost loves, roaring storms and hardship out at sea.

Fast becoming one of the most sought after shanty bands around, known as much for their heart rending three part harmonies as their lusty approach to singing shanties.

"Stunning voices that blend so beautifully, a real knock out"

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

River Storm With the Consone Quartet, Part 1 - Thames Festival Music Series

Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, the London-based Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the classical and early romantic string quartet repertoire through period instrument performance.

 

Nestled on the banks of the Danube, Vienna has long been a centre for cultural development in Europe.  Many great musical luminaries lived and worked there, including Franz Schubert and Josef Haydn.  The music of these two composers has been closely associated with the Sturm und Drang literary movement of the late 18th century, pioneered by eminent writers including Goethe and Schiller, both of whom had a profound effect on the young Schubert.

 

The Consone Quartet will perform Haydn's Quartet Op. 54, No. 2 in C major and Schubert's Quartet No. 13 in A minor, 'Rosamunde', on period instruments.
