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. From filming pop videos on horseback at 5am in the morning to acting alongside Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier this is a show which lifts the lid on working in the entertainment business. 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.

Hazel O’Connor & Cormac de Barra See You Again Tour 2017 at Ropery Hall

Hazel O’ Connor has fast established herself as a concert artist and performer to be reckoned with. From initially catapulting to stardom with the starring role in Breaking Glass and the ensuing hits that followed, Hazel continues to tour extensively delighting sell-out audiences along the way, winning over fans old and new. Her husky voice remains charged with passion and her enthusiasm, love of music, and wicked sense of humour, is ever present. Having now returned to her Celtic soul folk-roots, live and on-stage for this very special set of shows, she performs in a captivating acoustic line-up with Cormac de Barra on Irish Harp, her musical partner for some 15 years. The live-show combines Hazel’s unforgettable voice with the musicianship of Cormac in a stirring musical marriage, together they will reach into the very depths of your soul. Cormac De Barra has represented Ireland internationally and currently also performs with Clannad and Moya Brennan. He has recorded three of his own harp-led CDs. The combination of de Barra’s harp with Hazel’s unforgettable voice is truly magical.
