TROUBADOUR ROSE

Troubadour Rose are one of the most promising bands to come out of England in the last few years. Their talent as great musicians and their knack for writing a hook makes them a definite band to watch. They supported Amy MacDonald on her last tour and are managed by the same team. They were received fantastic reviews.

Producer Pete Wilkinson has heralded Troubadour Rose as ‘…one of the most promising bands to come out of England in the last few years… their knack for writing a hook makes them a definite band to watch.'

NME say they are ‘your next burgeoning folk crush,… Check out Labour of Love and try not to swoon into a coma.

Paul WellerLove the songs, great band,!

Troubadour Rose met in London, November 2009. They comprise violin Lutheran Gary Bridgewood, banjo and mandolin player Lizzy O’Connor and songstress Bryony Afferson.

Their sound is a heady concoction of Afferson’s powerful vocals, her youth filled with Fleetwood Mac and PJ Harvey records, O’Connor’s background is steeped in Irish Trad’ sessions and now wields Banjo and Mandolin hooks to stunning effect. Kaleidoscopic fiddle player Bridgwood adds an exuberant and wild edge to the mix.

Amongst there accomplishments they composed the Strawberry Fields Soundtrack in collaboration with BBC Films, Film London and Microwave Film. Troubadour Rose’s ‘Labour of Love’ and ‘Find an Arrow’ feature as the ‘Strawberry Fields’ title tracks.

New Comedy Club

Categories // Events at Bartons

at Bartons, Chilwell, Nottingham

After the success of the NOT THE EDINBURGH COMEDY FESTIVAL the first night of the Comedy Club is at Bartons in Chilwell, Nottingham on Thursday August 9th and then every second Thursday.


Headlining is the unique duo Brian Damage and Krysstal. Very popular on the comedy circuit with their unconventional vaudeville-style act, their sometimes bawdy humour is punctuated by silly songs, dancing and plenty of jokes. Before they teamed up Brian was a musician and Krysstal an actress in Australia. Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is very funny and definitely something that you won't forget.

Support comes from the dynamic and really quite loud, Ben Schofield. His rock and roll spirit and confident act is a sure winner with the crowd. His penchant for mirth-making which began as a simple defence mechanism whilst growing up in Bradford continues to this day.
Completing the line-up is Ben Lawes. His finely honed anecdotes laced with memorable imagery are performed with an engaging laconic style

Compere for the night is the lively and affable Spiky Mike.

Tickets are £7 in advance

YOU WAIT FOR AGES FOR A COMEDIAN – AND THEN THEY ALL COME AT ONCE!!

Categories // Events at Bartons

Date: Thursday 12th July – Sunday 15th July
Time: 8pm Venue: The Gallery, Bartons Plc, High Road, Chilwell

A brand new Comedy Festival designed to showcase the comedians on their way up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival starts next week at a brand new venue, Bartons in Chilwell, in its first summer of showcase events.

 

Thursday 12th

Headlining the first show will be the American comedian Louis Ramey. Born and raised in Atlanta Georgia, LOUIS RAMEY was bitten by the comedy bug while in college. It all started from a friendly dare, and thus he went and told a few jokes at the local jazz club in town. This first taste of “the stage” compelled LOUIS to seek his fortune in COMEDY. Since that time, LOUIS RAMEY has created quite a career for himself. He has participated in many of the Comedy Festivals including The US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, where in 1999 LOUIS was voted Best New Artist. He has also participated in The JUST FOR LAUGHS Comedy Festival in Montreal twice, in. “Louis Ramey had his share of hilarious moments at the festival.” Montreal Gazette Newspaper. http://www.louisrameycomedy.com/

Along with Louis is northerner Mr Steve N Allen comedian and writer who has a natural stage presence that connects with the crowd http://www.mrstevenallen.co.uk/

 

Friday 13th

Headlining the Friday night will be highly talented magician, comedian, actor and film producer Ali Cook. His irreverent persona and respected sleight of hand have made him one of the pioneers of the alternative magician scene. He has already written and performed seven British television series. His latest film role is alongside Bob Hoskins in Outside Bet (released on 27th April 2012).His anarchic illusions and stand up have attracted a large and diverse audience appeal including: The Harry Potter Premiere Parties, private events for Damien Hirst, JK Rowling, Minnie Driver, Basement Jaxx as well as headlining comedy clubs.

Support comes from the cheeky, chatty Dave Twentyman. No matter what your mood, you really can't help but warm to Dave he puts a big smile on everyone's face. Talking a lot about the subjects closer to home, such as family life & friends. Its light-hearted, positive fun that audiences can't help relating too.

Completing the line-up will be local comic Scott Bennett who lives just a mere five minutes away from the venue. This loveable rising star enthrals his audiences with his warm nature and entertaining stories.

 

Saturday 14th

Headlining the night is Rhodri Rhys, before becoming a comedian he qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and became a property entrepreneur in Eastern Europe. His act combines sharp wit and observation with a natural geniality, his material is broad and colourful, drawing on his own experiences in his unusual path to a comedy career, while deftly seaming in religion, business, sport and history too.

Supporting will be quirky and funny thinker, Marc Lucero. Essentially something of a London geezer, he finds himself mellowed by fatherhood and late middle age, venturing tentatively into the unfamiliar and cosseted life of vegetarianism, house-husbandry and touchy-feely support groups. Loved by his audiences despite or because of his standard grumpy-old-man rants!

Completing the line-up will be Welsh comedian Tommy Rowson, winner of last year’s ‘So You Think You're Funny?’ competition. With his low-key retelling of biblical tales his delivery and downplayed turn of phrase injecting giggles into his audiences.

 

Sunday 15th

Headlining Sunday night is Andre King, a stand up comedian from Auckland New Zealand and a veteran of the NZ comedy circuit. He started off in 2000 as a magician and in an effort to move from childrens parties to a more mature audience took to stand up comedy as a method of improving his patter. However, since making the move, he discovered a love for stand up and a passion for the stage. Since then he has performed all over New Zealand and Australia.

Since making the leap to Stand up comedy, Andre has also secured roles as an actor in critically acclaimed NZ shows such as Eating Media Lunch, Shortland Street and two seasons of "The Pretender" which saw him nominated in the Qantas Film & Television awards 2009 for "Best Supporting Actor".

Along with Alistair Barrie Comedian, actor and writer Alistair Barrie has been performing all over the world for nearly an entire century (this one). Much in demand as both a headline act and MC, he has performed throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as further afield in the States, Australia, Switzerland, The Netherlands, South Africa, Estonia, Mumbai, Cyprus, Crete, Luxembourg, Bahrain, Qatar, Belgium, Prague, Dubai, Doha, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Norway, Hong Kong, Macau, Malta, Singapore, Indonesia and Athens as well as at the world's highest gig on a mountain in France and on a boat in the middle of the North Sea.

If you would like to come along to the opening night of “Not” The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, please let us know it would be great to see you there.

 

Compere for the each night is Nottingham’s welcoming and energetic Spiky Mike.
