She Shanties plus support Paddy Garrigan and the Stroller Priests @ More Music
Feb 8 @ 7:30 pm

Shanties, Chanties; songs of the sea; working songs. She Shanties have been singing these story songs such as ‘Rio Grande’, ‘Roll Alabama’ and ‘Spanish Ladies’ at predominantly white male shanty festivals for 8 years, but shanties are music of black origin. Their roots can be found in Spiritualist music and plantation songs.

Along with carnival and calypso artists Cacophany Arkestra and Mento-B and the Jamiacan Folk Ensemble, She Shanties will collaborate on a series of residencies and performances focused on the Alan Lomax digital recording archive particularly one session recorded in Anguilla with plantation workers in 1962.

Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests:

“Absolutely awesome record, been singing it for days.” – Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music) on ‘Sea Monsters’, played on his BBC6 Introducing and Saturday night show

“Bonkers but amiable three piece from the far north of England take two years plus to produce a debut which has some trouser-bursting brass and lots of chutzpah. Mandolin ska folk psychedelia doesnt even make a halfway decent description. Off the wall and up the alley.” fRoots Magazine

Deep Cabaret Album Launch @ More Music
Mar 14 @ 7:00 pm

Deep Cabaret is a thing of riffs and drones. Featuring:

Steve Lewis (vocals & guitar)

Maja Bugge (cello)

Ben McCabe (drums & vocals)

Matt Robinson (clarinets, baritone saxophone & flutes)

Paul Sherwood (hurdy-gurdies & bagpipes)

Jayson Stilwell (overtone vocals & percussion)

 

At the beginning of 2019 Deep Cabaret were awarded Arts Council England funding to record an album at Real World studios with producer Justin Adams (Tinawarien, Lo’Jo).

 

Deep Cabaret is the culmination of bandleader Steve Lewis’ life’s work: to make a band that curates all the musics that fascinate him – jazz, improv, African, folk and leftfield pop. To use that music to set fragments of text taken from novels, journalism, spiritual and other texts that have interesting things to say about being human.

 

Deep Cabaret is a thing of riffs and drones. Hurdies, bagpipes, bass clarinets, cellos and the beguilingly unsettling harmonics of overtone singing. Desert blues improv and noir-drenched dronesongs; fulsomely romantic and coruscatingly edgy. Mashed-up lyrics lifted from neuroscience, slavery, fiction and Cole Porter covers all “pickled in the juices of the peat”.

 

“As the sun set, Deep Cabaret shared a spellbinding mix of sounds, many inspired by the stories and landscapes of Morecambe Bay. It was a delight to hear such an intriguing mix of instruments and astonishing vocals”

everywhere; in cafes and concert halls, spas and watering
places, dance halls and piers! This concert programme will be
another celebration of this historic and well-loved music, often
not heard for years, but full of easy-to-listen-to tunes! Watch
