Keith James: Torch Songs

Thu 6 Feb • 8pm • Full £15 • Music

A concert in support of organizations and individuals who are sacrificing their time in order to promote the awareness of Climate Change.

Anthems of vision, hope and change.
Words that reverberate with the tenacity of human spirit in these current times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and civil unrest.

Included in this concert are songs by Joan Baez, Labi Siffre, Nina Simone, Cat Stevens, Billy Holiday, Woody Guthrie, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg, Leonard Cohen and many more…

Keith James became a courageous and singular figure in November of last year when he released the song I CAN SEE in support of ‘Climate Change Awareness’. He has since released 3 different versions and has seen the song translated into many different languages.

“The world needs powerful songs as much as ever. ‘I Can See’, certainly hits its target. Keith clearly sees the danger of living in a post-truth, self-serving society, but he sees hope too!” Folking.com

Amadou Diagne & Cory Seznec: Touki

Sat 21 Mar • 8pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Music

Amadou Diagne from Senegal and French-American Cory Seznec first met whilst busking on the streets of Bath in 2007. Both multi-instrumentalist, singers and composers, they discovered a strong musical connection that planted the seeds of a future collaboration in their minds. Touki is the Wolof word for Travel, Wolof being one of the main languages spoken in Senegal. For Amadou and Cory, Touki refers to the travelling with music that brought them together and finds expression in the eclectic, exciting, syncopated and poly-rhythmic dynamic between the two musicians as they write and perform, creating music that seeks to find common ground and surprises.

Cory Seznec is somewhere between a musical wanderer and an uncertified ethnomusicologist. He brings his background of American old time, bluegrass, New Orleans finger style guitar and claw hammer banjo. Amadou Diagne has deep roots in the Griot music traditions of West Africa through a long family line of percussionists and traditional praise singers. A self-taught kora player and guitarist, he has developed a unique and intricate style to accompany himself which draws on his skills as a percussionist.
