What's on

Friday 19th May 2017, 7.30pm

Music at St Helen's Church - Simon Mayor & Hilary James

St Helen's Church, Alveston

This duo's musical diversity and wry wit always translates into a hugely entertaining stage show. Their performances can range from beautifully evocative Irish ballads into a mandolin and guitar version of Handel's Arrival Of the Queen Of Sheba and can then drop into one of their own notorious comic songs with wry humour and an easy, informal stage manner.
Simon, one of the world's foremost mandolinists, is constantly in demand to play and teach at festivals and workshops. Hilary's elegant singing has received huge acclaim and her mandobass has become a trademark. It has such a large presence that it is often referred to as the third member of the duo. Together they are a force of nature that deliver genre defying uplifting music that encompasses folk, blues, jazz and the occasional classically inspired piece.
They have supported “Fairport Convention” on a UK tour and at Cropredy festival which has resulted in their music being appreciated by a much wider audience.
Tickets £13 from Steve 07760 991297 or email.
