Description Pacific Curls make music that is both worldly and enthralling.  With a cornerstone of backbeat Pacific rhythms, vivacious Scottish fiddle playing and evocative Maori instrumentation and lyrics, Pacific Curls have pioneered a fusion sound that seamlessly blend their indigenous roots. Classifying their sound is a challenge. Their use of jazz chordal transitions, traditional Scottish fiddle tunes, expressive vocals, political and moving lyrics in Maori and English, their use of world instruments with Pacific style beats and moods, shakes and bakes it all into a contemporary intriguing edginess.

Suitable for all ages

Saturday 25 October 7.00pm Epworth Imperial Hall 07860 634763


A man and a woman in a garden. She has stories for him; he unpicks them. Stories about the origins of language and why people don’t understand each other. She helps him explore a story he needs to tell – at first rather awkwardly. Gradually more and more complicit. They talk of Nimrod and neurons, of the babble of Babel, of poetry and the prefrontal cortex. Clearly they share a history that both binds them together and keeps them apart. But do the stories they tell and the arguments they provoke draw them any closer? Or are they a way to avoid talking about the things that really matter?

Sam Sweeney’s Fiddle: Made in the Great War at Ropery Hall

September 27, 2014
8:00 pm

The Ropewalk and Mad Dog Folk present; Sam Sweeney’s Fiddle: Made in the Great War at Ropery Hall                   

In 2009 Sam Sweeney, fiddle player with Bellowhead, bought a violin in Oxford.  It had all the appearance of a new instrument but the label inside gave the date 1915 and the name Richard S Howard.

Research revealed that the violin had been made, but never finished, by a luthier and some-time music hall performer from Leeds called Richard Spencer Howard.  He had been conscripted in 1915 at the age of 35 and two years later was killed during the battle of Messines Ridge.  His violin had been left unfinished in his workshop.  The pieces were given to his daughter Rose in a manila envelope, as a memory of her father.  She kept them all her life.  On her death they were sent to an auction house.  The parts were bought and the violin was finally finished by luthier Roger Claridge in 2007.  The fiddle was then placed in the window of an Oxford music shop where it was spotted by Sam.

Discovery of the history behind the fiddle has inspired Sam to create a multi-media performance telling the incredible story of the fiddle which took nearly 100 years to complete, to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.  Collaborating with award-winning story-teller Hugh Lupton, fellow Bellowhead band mate Paul Sartin and acclaimed concertina player Rob Harbron, as well as Bellowhead lighting designer Emma Thompson who has developed set, projections and lighting for the show, MADE IN THE GREAT WAR will bring the reality of World War I into 2014, as Sam performs the show with the actual fiddle made by non-returning World War I soldier Richard Howard.

Sam Sweeney’s Fiddle: Made In The Great War is supported by funding from Arts Council England and the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett at Ropery Hall

September 20, 2014
8:00 pm

John Otway is an English singer-songwriter who has built a sizeable cult audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and a self-deprecating underdog persona.

He comes to Ropery Hall armed with a surreal sense of humour, his winning underdog personality and a bucket-load of top songs.

Arriving on the back of punk rock and a gymnastic performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test, his first single, the half-spoken love song “Really Free” soared to number 27 in the UK Singles Chart. The song earned him a five album deal with Polydor Records, who thought he was a punk rather than merely eccentric. His first album was recorded with Wild Willy Barrett and produced by Pete Townshend, and the follow up singles came with some imaginative promotion, which included an offer for Otway to come to a lucky buyer’s house and perform the single if they had bought a winning copy.

His live audience have always remained loyal, due to Otway’s manic energy and the probability of physical injury during renditions of songs such as “Headbutts”. A well orchestrated grassroots campaign saw his “Beware Of The Flowers Cause I’m Sure They’re Going To Get You Yeah” voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll. His ‘Bunsen Burner’, which featured lyrics to help his daughter with her chemistry homework and contained music sampled from the Trammps classic “Disco Inferno”, was a Top Ten hit in 2002, and earned Otway an appearance on Top Of The Pops.

In order to celebrate his 60th birthday in 2012, Otway booked the Odeon Leicester Square to show the documentary of his life. Titled Otway the Movie, the sell out screening saw cinematic history made with the final scenes of the movie being filmed from the red carpet on the morning of the film. The film was funded by fans becoming producers who, as with his ‘Hit campaign’, were all individually credited in the movie credits.

Snake Davis and his Band: The Classic Sax Solo Tour at Ropery Hall

September 19, 2014
8:00 pm

An instrumental solo can break hearts, lift spirits, even change lives in extreme cases. Sax is the favourite instrument for many folk, and for good reason. Saxophone, in the right hands, is so emotional, so passionate; it sings, screams, whispers.

Snake gives us 25 classics, including Baker Street, Careless Whisper, Will You, Still Crazy after all these Years, Respect, Yakety Yak, and his own solos from Million Love Songs, Moving on Up, Search for the Hero, and Lisa Stansfield’s “Change”.

Snake reveals their background and history as well as playing them in context. What is their individual magic ingredient, what makes them classic? How did they come about, how did the players produce that magic?

Sultry sax, searing sax, screaming sax, sexy sax, soulful sax, this show has it all.

Tickets £14/£16otd 01652 660380

“A virtuoso saxophonist” Daily Telegraph

“Snake Davis has one of the most passionate sax styles and simple bluesy approaches a-la-Sanborn heard in these isles for a while”  Time Out

 “Snake is a joy to work alongside.  His musical skills have no limit, in fact he is as free as a bird”  Dave Stewart (Eurythmics)

“Snake has been a friend and inspiration for many years and continues to be so because of his exceptional talent, dedication and sheer joy of making music. Long may it continue.”  Heather Small

Henning Wehn at Ropery Hall

September 18, 2014
8:00 pm

After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has “groan” to like puns…. though he still couldn’t eat a whole one.

As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn’t lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society.

Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement?

You’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class.

Expect an evening-long crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!

Henning’s recent TV and radio appearances include various 8 Out Of 10 Cats shows (Channel 4), Would I Lie To You, the Matt Lucas Awards and Room 101 (BBC1); Newsnight, QI (BBC2); The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave, unsurprisingly), The Unbelievable Truth and The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), Fighting Talk (BBC Five Live) and his own six part series on BBC Radio 2, Henning Knows Best. In 2014, he co-presents with Mark Watson a six part travel series, The Road To Rio, for worldwide distribution which will be shown in the UK on Dave.
