An evening of entertainment for all members & friends to celebrate the end of a great weekend.
Roll up! Roll up! Southbank Bristol Arts presents The Weekend Finale!
- Free* food & Flamenco
- Roaming entertainment from the Green People
- Music from One Star Awake & the Bushido Brothers
& as a special treat Venus Noir performs her latest Burlesque show Venus goes Wild
New duo One Star Awake sing and play traditional folk songs from England, Ireland and Scotland, plus a couple of compositions. Sue Mara's vocals are accompanied by Anna Kissell's fiddle, or on some songs, we both sing acapella in close harmony. Occasionally we’re joined by other musicians; on our current demo, for example, jazz pianist Pete Rosser guests on one track.
We've just started playing gigs as a duo, including supporting Martin Carthy recently.
The gorgeous songs we sing and play are usually slow, haunting, atmospheric - even the up-tempo ones carry a dark shimmer...
I shall be exhibiting photographs taken at the Angkor Wat temple site in Cambodia.
My work will be on display between 5 May and 17 May in the Green Room.
I hope you are enjoying the Arts Trail here in South Bristol. I work in the medium of mosaic and use stained glass as its has a wonderful rich, vibrant colour and creates such light and reflections that transform the subject matter. I take inspiration from the colour and richness thats evident in the world around us. I have a passion for shape, form and pattern and this is expressed in abstract and representational pieces.
