Toyah: Up Close & Personal at Ropery Hall

Household name, pop icon, TV presenter, and stage/screen actress, this is a unique chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage. This lively, entertaining and revealing show comes in the form of Toyah performing an unplugged set of her well-loved hits and classic songs, alongside recalling stories from her colourful, 35 year career.

A talented duo of guitarists, Chris Wong and Colin Hinds, accompany Toyah on meticulous and melodic acoustic versions of the hits It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe through to Sensational, a track used recently on a national TV advertising campaign starring Patsy Kensit.

Mammal Hands at Ropery Hall

Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Mart (piano), Jesse Barrett (drums and table), and Jordan Smart (saxophones). Signed to Matthew Halsall’s Gondwana Records they have carved out a growing following both here and abroad for their hypnotic fusion of jazz, folk and electronica: winning fans from Bonobo and Gilles Peterson to Jamie Cullum. They have been compared to both Portico Quartet and GoGo Penguin (who the group have toured with) for the way in which they navigate the choppy waters between contemporary dance music and jazz. Drawing on a rich well of influences from Sufi and shamanic African trance music, Irish and Eastern European folk music, to Steve Reich and Philip Glass and more contemporary electronica influences, their music is built around deceptively simple sounding ideas that are lent power through the use of repetition and rhythmic loops.
