Harriet performs intimate interpretations of her favourite sounds of the 70s, including hits by The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King and The Carpenters, interlaced with her nostalgic original material. This is a unique opportunity to hear Harriet perform songs from the era that inspires her most and share the stories behind her connection to the music. It’s an evening not to be missed!

Mad Dog Mcrea

Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. From self-penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life, to traditional songs of gypsies, fairies, legless pirates and black flies – Mad Dog never fail to capture their audience with their infectious songs. In constant demand and having played just about every festival and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live, band.

Matched with the unshakable dedication of their massive and “loyal-to-the-hilt”, fan base–Mad Dog Mcrea are more than just a very popular, festival act–with five albums under their belts, they are serious and acclaimed recording artists too. December 2019 saw Mad Dog Mcrea released a 5-track EP titled ‘It’s a Sign’.

The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you–jumpaboard!

RAISE THE OOF 

WORK IN PROGRESS SHOW PRIOR TO UK TOUR

Radio 4 favourite, comedy legend, and ‘the 42nd best reason to love Britain’ (The Telegraph) JOHN SHUTTLEWORTH, is back with more hilarious stories and songs performed on his trusty Yamaha organ (with built-in auto accompaniment!) In RAISE THE OOF John celebrates 40 years in showbiz. Yes, it was 1985 when he met TV’s Clarinet Man – next door neighbour Ken Worthington who came last on New Faces in 73 (Tony Hatch crucified him!) 

“When I met Ken he was eating a CurlyWurly” recalls John, “although initially I thought it was a packet of sparklers, so I gave him a wide berth”, and the rest, as they say, is hysterical! 

“ Actually, I feel rather calm” muses John, “although after forty years and still no chart success, perhaps I should be slightly anxious. My wife Mary says I should get a proper job, but there’s not time – I’m about to retire! Besides, Comet – where I used to demonstrate audio equipment – no longer exists. As for the sweet factory in the Rotherham area where I worked as a security guard in the 1980’s – that’s now an Axe Throwing Centre. Oof!”

But I’m still posting off my songs (on cassette tape with Dolby so it’s not too hissy) to cutting edge pop acts like Chris Rea and the Lighthouse Family, plus I’m still being booked for nostalgic singalongs at the local hospice (for petrol money only) so we have every reason to celebrate my long and illustrious career. Do come along and join me in punching the air, and helping – in an orderly and controlled fashion – to RAISE THE OOF!

“His stand up is second to none, his timing is impeccable, and you can practically warm your hands on his good nature” The Guardian

“The Cole Porter of the antimacassar set”  The Times

“A Ludicrously compelling night out”  Evening Standard

“Sublime character comedy “ – The Guardian
