Gesualdo: Cruel Ecstasy – performed by the Exaudi Vocal Ensemble

Monday, May 23rd 2022

The Exaudi Vocal Ensemble took to an otherwise bare stage to perform a selection of Carlo Gesualdo Madrigals that were dripping with melancholy and emotion. Using only the considerable power of their voices, this unamplified concert was the music the acoustics of St Andrews Hall were built for.

James Bay - Kevin Garrett

Daniel Pioro and Erland Coope

Wednesday, May 18th 2022

Slowly, very slowly, the sense of something musical emerged, as if the performers were teasingly grappling for out of reach harmony. Only then did Cooper join the party, with delicate, gossamer light touches on the piano. Subsequently, he would play music of sublime beauty, as Daniel Pioro prowled around the performance area, accompanying and complementing faultlessly.

Moor Mother

CONFIDENCE MAN & MIND ENTERPRISES

Friday, May 13th 2022

What Confidence Man do is some distance from my usual tastes but – as with Self Esteem –the music is different and strange enough to appeal to me whilst being dance-oriented pop enough to appeal to the mainstream and keep this crowd groovin’ like loons.

...an absolute joy to rock out to new album tracks- they were raw, heavy and full of life (I particularly liked “Best of Me” and Wolfman) and perfectly interspersed between their well-loved classics.

The Nightingales - Rats on Rafts- Ted Chippington

Monday, April 25th 2022

Max Cooper - Dom IV

Friday, April 22nd 2022

As a performance, it’s difficult to categorise – it slides between gig, clubnight and art show.

Rex Orange County

Tuesday, April 5th 2022

The Surrey-born star shows what it takes to keep a crowd mesmerized by catchy tunes with deeper meanings, definitely delivering a night that was ‘10/10’ (Excuse the pun).

Paul Weller

Monday, April 4th 2022

...the Weller obsessives are treated to an array of Weller and Jam tracks of various hits, album tracks and misses from a back catalogue that now spans over the past fifty years going back to those very early Jam days.

Group Listening

Friday, April 1st 2022

Extraordinarily talented musicians in their own right, they craft beautiful soundscapes that fill the former church in a way a building like the Arts Centre was designed for. There’s a certain meditative quality.
