HOLDER & SMITH “A tribute to Django and Stephane, the swing era” : 8pm

An evening with the music of the Guitar and Violin virtuosos Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli played by two of this country’s finest exponents of this style. Expect to be flown back in time to the dance halls of the 1940s with this homage to the Quintet of the hot club of France. This really was the “Swing” era, full of irresistible rhythms and all the musical indulgence there was to offer.


Ben (Violin, Vocals) and Stuart (Gypsy Guitar) have toured together extensively throughout the UK, Europe and the USA over the last 8 years. previously they made up half of the highly acclaimed band ‘Gypsy Fire” and now are focusing their creative juices on this project. This most recent project has just had world wide exposure after performing for Elton John and the Beckhams at Romeo Beckhams 16th Birthday celebrations in Nice.

Saturday 9th February 2019

The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra : 8pm

A one man orchestra of epic proportions. An engaging and inspiring solo show from boundary breaking guitarist and composer Chris Woods. Taking you on a journey from minimalist solo guitar to looped cinematic sounds and explosive six string percussive explorations.

When Google book an artist for their event, someone described as ‘changing the perceived boundaries of the acoustic guitar’, you know you aren’t talking about your average musician.
A UK based instrumental phenomenon – guitarist Chris Woods, recording as ‘Chris Woods Groove’ and ‘The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra’.

Chris began his career as a solo guitarist, originally catching the eye of the music industry for his creative approach to playing; using revolutionary techniques and a hugely individual approach to composition. Endorsed by the most acclaimed brands he honed his skills performing at prestigious guitar festivals across the globe. Approached by Hal Leonard to write a comprehensive guide on the percussive style, which quickly became the standard ‘how to play’ percussive guitar publication, Chris’ reputation became international and highly regarded.

Since then his focus on creative playing has led him to branching out his compositional style to orchestra’s of all shapes and sizes. Recent projects for his ‘groove orchestra’ include Guitar Revolution ( a national tour creating pop-up guitar orchestras) or Orchestral Evolution (a recent commission to create a contemporary and evolved orchestra for young people).
A spontaneous creator and an emotive player...

Headliner magazine described a recent performance at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios: ‘tremendous – to say Chris Woods feels this music is a wild understatement, and it’s a genuine privilege to witness them perform’

Tonight Chris will be performing a collection of solo pieces ranging from spacey improvisational solos to explosive percussion driven grooves .
