Simon Mayor & Hilary James
Tears of Laughter
Join Britain’s leading ‘hot-fingered mandolin virtuoso’ Simon Mayor, and silver-voiced songstress Hilary James for an unmissable evening of musical fun. It’s probably the diversity of their repertoire that surprises people most: from folk songs to blues, classical mandolin show-stoppers, swing fiddle, and a couple of their own infamous comic songs. Pepper it all with Simon’s unique brand of off-beat humour and Hilary’s honey-dripping voice for a massively entertaining evening not to be missed. Serious stuff – but don’t take it too seriously!
National press reviews:
‘One of the world’s great mandolin players.’ BBC Radio 3
'One of Britain's finest voices.' BBC Radio 4
An aural orgy of dazzling musicianship.’ The Independent
'Deliciously uncool' The Daily Telegraph.
Special guest:
Andy Baum from Slim Panatella & the Mellow Virginians.
