Come an enjoy a first time exclusive performance as Tamsin Elliott brings her new music project to Cumbria.
“There is a rich thread of collaboration throughout, one which both celebrates and highlights the coming together of cultures and music… dreamlike and mesmerising” – Folk Radio UK
Exploring the parallels and celebrating the idiosyncrasies of both Egyptian and English folk traditions, Tamsin Elliott and Tarek Elazhary aim to find commonality, foster cross-cultural connection and help to heal the scars of a colonial past through meaningful and conscious collaboration.
A dialogue born of mutual respect and friendship enables instruments from disparate traditions – lever harp, accordion and whistles, and the Arabic oud – to speak with the same voice, the voice of a future-facing new generation wishing to build something new and authentic together.
Supported by EFDSS and Help Musicians, the duo will combine their “outstanding compositional and instrumental prowess” (RnR) in their debut album, due for release on Penny Fiddle Records in September 2023
Pre concert supper can be booked from 6pm (booking essential please ring 01768484538)
13th September 2023 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
