A formidable flamenco-jazz guitar virtuoso, Eduardo Niebla is a master of today’s generation; technically superb, breathtaking versatile, supernaturally talented. Inspired by tours to India, the Middle East, his adopted Yorkshire homeland and his mother, Eduardo presents his stunning new album “My Gypsy Waltz” together with music from his acclaimed 30 year career – intricately brilliant, passionate flamenco infused with a myriad of Eastern colours and a Gypsy-jazz edge. Brilliantly accompanied by Ricardo Garcia, this is an amazing opportunity to hear world-class guitar playing at its very best.
“A display of supernatural talent and a spellbinding mixture of flamenco and modern jazz, bursting with obvious passion and verve.” The Spectator

Kathryn Tickell Band
The most widely acknowledged icon of Northumbrian music joins forces with some of the UK’s most talented young musicians to present a band full of excitement and vitality. Kathryn is the foremost exponent of the Northumbrian pipes, playing with Sting, The Chieftains, The Penguin Café Orchestra, Evelyn Glennie, Andy Sheppard and many others as well as releasing 14 of her own albums. She learned in the traditional way from old shepherd musicians in outlying hill farms in Northumberland. The concert features Kathryn’s own compositions, some from Peter Tickell, and as always the traditional tunes of Northumberland and the Borders are well represented. The Kathryn Tickell Band’s compelling performances have justifiably earned worldwide acclaim.

Alan Price Set
The name Alan Price immediately summons up some of the most memorable sounds in the last 40 years: from the Animals’ House Of The Rising Sun to his quirky take on Randy Newman’s Simon Smith And His Amazing Dancing Bear to his many hits with Georgie Fame, including the most famous Rosetta. His induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1994 was testimony to his achievements throughout his career in the music industry and sits well alongside his BAFTA award for the soundtrack of the highly acclaimed film O Lucky Man! in which he also appeared as ‘himself’. Around the World he is readily acknowledged as one of the most talented and enduring musical artists to have emerged from the 1960’s British Beat Boom.

With such classic hits as Sweets For My Sweet, Needles and Pins, Don’t Throw Your Love Away and When You Walk In The Room, The Searchers have contributed enormously in establishing the UK as the world’s leading nation in the music industry. No doubt the decade that gave us The Beatles, The Searchers and many others, was unique and pervades all cultural and age barriers today. The Searchers continue touring the globe as much today as they have done throughout a fantastic career now remarkably spanning 5 decades. They have devised a ‘special’ solo concert, which will appeal to all ages. It is a highly entertaining concert which has been enthusiastically and warmly received throughout the world.
