Simon Mayor and Hilary James make a welcome return to Beverley this March with A Riot of Music and Humour.
Simon is one of the world’s leading mandolin virtuosos. His many faceted career includes his own series on BBC Radio 2, an album in the Classic FM Top Ten chart and causing mayhem at a Canadian humour festival. His first anthology of poems, limericks and anecdotes is called ‘Of Death and a Banana Skin’. Illustrations and augmented reality animations are by Hilary James.
Hilary James is "One of Britain's finest voices” (BBC Radio 4).
With a top ten album of the year in The Sunday Times, BBC Radio 2 playlisting and a voice that easily crosses the great musical divides from folksong to blues, Irving Berlin and Berlioz, Hilary James has travelled the globe from Los Angeles to Singapore. She's illustrated a variety of CDs and books for both children and adults. A fine guitarist, she is also famed for an unusual taste in bass instruments, including her amazing bass mandolin.
Community arts officer June Mitchell said : 'Virtuoso mandolin, elegant vocals, guitar and fiddle wizardry, and a stage show that ranges from witty to hilarious. Expect anything from a Vivaldi concerto, trad folk, jazz standards, Celtic, ragtime, blues and, of course, that song about the parrot!' (Ents24)
