Traditional Arts Team events update Sunday 18th Sept

September 14, 2011 by General Administrator

Sunday 18 Sept no music session, go to SUN STATIONS instead!

Normally we have a traditional music session on the third Sunday of each month at the Prince of Wales pub in Moseley. However, there won’t be one on Sunday 18 September. Instead we are encouraging people to go along to a great night at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Kings Heath, featuring Luke Daniels and John Dipper.

For those of you who don’t know them, Luke Daniels is a multi-instrumentalist specializing in the melodeon or button accordion who has collaborated with a range of artists and organisations including Riverdance, London Jazz Festival, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Folkworks and English National Opera. John Dipper grew up steeped in the traditions and culture of Southern England, plays fiddle and concertina, is a respected and established performer who also works with Chris Wood and Robert Harbron in the English Acoustic Collective and with groundbreaking string quartet Methera.

Sun Stations explores the music, customs and festivities of the old ritual year. Using ingenious archive material and arresting new folk music, providing audiences with an entertaining view of English culture spanning back more than half a millennium. We’ll also discover the English penchant for hurling cakes and buns at crowds, weighing the Town Mayor and how the character of Old Tosspot used to make a regular appearance each year. . .

Sun Stations, a compact compendium of folk music and customs, plus all the weird bits.
Sunday 18 Sept, Kitchen Garden Cafe, 17 York Road, Kings Heath B14 7SA
Tickets £12 from 0121 443 4725 or

The next session at the Prince of Wales will be on Sunday 16 October.

Please pass this message on to anyone else you know who might be interested.

All the best – Pam
