Kimber’s Men Wrecks on the Shore Released: Autumn 2018 We have talked about Kimber’s Men before with their last CD. The reason being is they are friends of Shrewsbury and have, nationwide following notwithstanding, a large Shropshire fan base. Their new album "Wrecks on the Shore." floated over my desk so I thought I would have a listen and let you know how it fares. The singing of Sea Shanties...

Mr. Charles Dickens Presents A Christmas Carol Walker Theatre 12/November/2018 It is 175 years since Mr. Dickens first put quill to velum to bring us the most favourite story of our great Christmas season. A Christmas Carol. It is hard to believe that a piece of work so relevant and so fresh can be so old, but it is and for all those decades this allegorical tale of Mr. Scrooge delights and warns...

To Have To Shoot Irish Men Walker Theatre 1st November 2018 Well what a mixed bag we have with this show, contrasting styles, conventions and design all went to give slightly less than one initially imagined.

Beyond the Barricade Theatre Severn 16th October 2018 Sorry Spandau Ballet fans, there was not a single note of that beautiful song, instead there was a mixed bag of songs from the shows, leading to their big finale piece taken of course from, Les Miserables. So who is, Beyond the Barricade? They are all former performers from the West End run of Les Miserables although the four vocalists visited...

The Robin Nolan Trio Walker Theatre Friday October 12th Living proof that you can improve on perfection; After a perfect start this Gypsy Jazz trio just got better and better. Initially here’s a quick glance of the genre. Gypsy Jazz is a unique sound fusing Jazz Music with Blues with folk with pop. Played on guitars and maybe violin and trumpet, it is a fast, pacey and exciting sound. Like all...

The Simon and Garfunkel Story Theatre Severn 25th September 2018   The most significant aspect of the peace loving Sixties was the fact that before and since the changes between the decades had been incremental at best but in truth barely noticeable. From the un-expectant wings on the stage of humanity the Sixties exploded like a rampant troubadour with its poetry, it’s peaceful doctrines and its...

Owen Lewis Productions Present Lady Smock September 2018   As a playwright I have always worked alone and I have never collaborated. I have obviously worked with others in the county but not in the writing. That has always for me been a solitary occupation.  At University one is expected to collaborate all the time and the support that one receives in those settings is second to none. However in...
