CLIVE GREGSON & LIZ SIMCOCK – Saturday 07 October

In 2015, thirty years on from the beginnings of Gregson & Collister, and with a deluxe re-reissue of their best-selling album Home and Away, Clive Gregson was keen to celebrate this hugely enjoyable part of his musical career. He invited singer Liz Simcock to join him to perform some songs that he hadn’t played for a very long time in what was intended to be a one-off tour.

Clive and Liz had such a great time and it proved to be a real treat for audiences too, they’ve decided to do more… Clive has also been inspired to write new songs for the duo, and the debut duo album Underwater Dancing is released in September.

We are delighted to welcome Clive and Liz back to the mill for what promises to be a very special evening.

With Support From:

HENRY PARKER
With a sound rooted in the haze of the English folk revival, Henry Parker takes up a style crafted by players such as Bert Jansch and Nick Drake in the 1960’s and early 70’s. His open tuned acoustic creates a sound that would perhaps fit the ‘Folk-Baroque’ label, a term used to describe those musicians who followed the path laid down by the great originator Davy Graham. His songs and tunes arrive either worked from his own hand, or are borrowed and developed from the traditional British folk cannon.

“Henry Parker has a beautifully clear and precise finger picking acoustic guitar style… it’s quite simply gorgeous.” – FATEA

WENDY KIRKLAND QUARTET – Monday 18 September 2017

Switching to jazz in her late teens, Wendy continued her playing career as a dance class pianist, accompanist to singers and as a keyboardist in club bands.
After being persuaded to sing by a great friend and guitarist, Bill McCreath, Wendy learned to reach people who are perhaps turned off by instrumental jazz, as she learnt to communicate with the audience through the songs.
Wendy’s voice has been likened to Blossom Dearie with hints of Diana Krall.
Her influences range from Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald through Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly to Chick Corea, Eliane Elias and Michel Petrucciani.
