Lester Simpson's "Standing In Line"
Our very special
concert at Cranleigh Arts Centre on Saturday 10th November, "Standing In
Line", is selling very well. Hardly surprising as it will be the last
night on a very short tour of six gigs and probably the last chance to see the
show in the UK.
In "Standing In Line" internationally acclaimed
singer-songwriter Lester Simpson, of Coope, Boyes and Simpson, tells the story
of his Great Uncle's war through songs, readings and images (we shall be using
the cinema facilities at the Arts Centre). Lester will be joined on stage by
Piet Chielens, the curator of the “In Flanders Field” museum in Ypres,
Belgium, and Nigel Corbett, who will be providing accompaniment on guitar,
mandolin and fiddle.
Originally commissioned for Passendale
peace concerts the show is only touring on this side of the Channel for the
week leading up to Armistice Day and will be its only performance in the south
east of England – don’t miss it.
As mentioned above, tickets are
selling fast. Most purchases to date have been made via the Arts Centre
Box Office (01483 871443) which means that some of the best remaining tickets
are those being sold online at http://www.formdesk.com/electricvoices/cactkts
£10.00 in advance, £12.00 on the day.
