Eva Cassidy "The Story" presented by Elsa Jean McTaggart. : 8pm

Eva Cassidy: an icon of acoustic music. Wistful and emotional vocals, beautiful
guitar accompaniment, Eva Cassidy had the power to move audiences through
her interpretation of well-known songs.
Inspired by her favourite artist, award-winning musician Elsa Jean McTaggart
presents a brand-new show for 2018 – Eva Cassidy: The Story.
Using video, story and song, Elsa Jean McTaggart channels Eva Cassidy’s musical
voice through her own. Elsa has devised this very special show to pay homage to
this true interpreter of song. Audiences the world over tell Elsa how much she
reminds them of Eva Cassidy as she, too, exudes beauty inside and out as well as
possessing the most hypnotic of voices.
A hit with a wide audience at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 where the show was
previewed selling out many times, Eva Cassidy: The Story will be a deeply
personal, poignant tribute by Elsa to an inspirational voice and an incredibly
talented musician who was discovered by the world tragically late.

B NATURALS SHOW : 8pm

An evening of heart, hilarity and harmony with the fabulous B Naturals!

Four guys who cover all the bases from JSBach to James Brown via Bernstein, Bossa and the Bee Gees.

Nick, Guy, Jon and Dave unite their varied backgrounds in jazz, barbershop, electrical engineering, choral music, bank management and soul to bring you great singing with pindrop precision, whether it’s a tearjerker or a sidesplitter. Be there or be oblong. Or simply … be natural!


Singing a blend of sumptuous romantic ballads, up tempo rockers, refined baroque counterpoint and funky soul, a B Naturals show is a feast of great singing delivered with wit and panache.

Audiences are left wanting more and feeling thoroughly entertained.



HISTORY
Back in 2008, four guys from the Frome area formed a men’s close harmony quartet in protest at rarely ever being allowed to sing the tune.

"We didn’t really get on to start with. Jazz, classical, barbershop and 60s flower power are different, after all. We couldn’t decide what sort of songs to sing, and argued endlessly about terminology. What one called a ‘portamento in the coda’, another called a ‘swipe in the tag’, whilst the third asked ‘don’t you mean the outro?’ and the last just wanted us to point and give a little demo.

Accepting that we’re all highly pretentious in our own little ways, we now condescend to include a few of each other’s songs-numbers-charts-repertoire in all of our gigs-concerts-singouts-sharings."
