New date for Hazel

Such has been the demand for tickets to see Hazel O’Connor’s first appearance at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall in mid-October that a second date has been added.

Hazel will now be appearing at the Maltkiln Road venue for a further gig on Sunday, October 16.

“The demand to see Hazel has been unprecedented here at Ropery Hall,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.

“Tickets to see her appear here on Saturday, October 15, were sold out within the week so I was delighted to be offered this second date,” she went on.  “I am sure that once again tickets will be in great demand.

“Both gigs will be very special up-close and personal evenings in which Hazel’s unique voice delivers a renewed passion and fire as she explores a stunning repertoire of old and new songs and stories,” Liz continued.

“This is a major coup for Ropery Hall – Hazel O’Connor appearing here not once   but twice!” she continued.

Joining Hazel at Ropery Hall will be virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst, who has played with The Belle Stars, Communards and David Bowie) on sax and vocals, and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards and vocals.

“This powerful blend of voices and musicianship promises to bring a classy touch of energy to Hazel’s vibrant performance,” Liz added.

Tickets to see Hazel on Sunday, October 16, are now on sale and cost £22 and can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at the Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.

Mammal Hands

Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Mart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones. Signed to Matthew Halsall’s Gondwana Records they have carved out a growing following both here and abroad for their hypnotic fusion of jazz, folk and electronica: winning fans from Bonobo and Gilles Peterson to Jamie Cullum and they have been compared to both Portico Quartet and GoGo Penguin (who the group have toured with) for the way in which they navigate the choppy waters between contemporary dance music and jazz. Drawing on a rich well of influences from Sufi and shamanic African trance music, Irish and Eastern European folk music, to Steve Reich and Philip Glass and more contemporary electronica influences, their music is built around deceptively simple sounding ideas that are lent power through the use of repetition and rhythmic loops.
