Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith
'10 years of playing together' tour

Thur 6th October
7:30pm


The Music Room
£14

After 10 years on the folk scene Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith will embark on an anniversary tour this autumn. To celebrate a decade of music-making they will present a retrospective show with songs & tunes taken from across their 4 albums plus a few new offerings to kick-off the next 10 years.

 

The duo’s live performances are a celebration of traditional music but there is also a deep integrity and sincerity that stems from their passion for the social themes within the music. There is a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice, as well as the occasional love song.

 

Their shows manage to be both hard-hitting and uplifting and it is this ability that justifies their reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.

 

 

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Nominated Best Traditional Track

‘Making common cause between antique songs and present circumstances is one of the grails of modern folk, one this young duo pull off impressively...Rousing stuff.’ The Observer

‘This is a well-judged collection that feels very timely in its preoccupation with the working poor, and of economic and ecological instability. Observations about modern life blend seamlessly with traditional material, delivered with rare poise and delicate musicianship. What particularly stands out on all the self-penned numbers is the duo’s ability to treat contemporary subject matter effectively in folk music.’ ★★★★ Songlines

Saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes has been described as “an improviser to be reckoned with” (Downbeat Magazine) and “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times” (John Fordham, the Guardian). A BASCA British Composer Award winner and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Clowes has received critical acclaim for all six of her album releases, and her band MY IRIS have been hailed as “the jazz of the future” (Augsburger Allgemeine).

Her duo with pianist and organist Ross Stanley - who has performed with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The BBC Concert Orchestra, The Heritage Orchestra, and has also worked with Tom Jones, Alfie Boe and Paloma Faith, amongst many others - will focus on their interpretations of a Marcel Dupré prelude (Prelude III from Trois Preludes et Fugues) and Herbert Howells’s Gloucester Service

The duo has been developing their repertoire for a number of years - and for this tour programme, they will present their own interpretations of, and improvisations on, a diverse range of music (in addition to the Howell and Dupré pieces), as well as compositions from each of them.
