Faversham Folk Club
Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham
7.30    
Ticket Price £7 / £8

Keith and Sylvia sing mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and beyond.

Both have a very wide ranging repertoire, strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, affording an exciting enhancement in duo and between them produce a striking acapella harmony sound. With a formidable history of performing experience behind them, their recorded work is matched only by their live gigs which are always a vocal and musical revelation as well as a hoot! They also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument – the Concertina. And when they’re not doing that you’ll probably find them playing lively and stirring music for the Winster Morris Dancers.

Friday 30th January 2015 - POLITICALLY INCORRECT - The Songs of Tom Lehrer - at The Arden Theatre

Politically Incorrect: The Songs of Tom Lehrer



Politically Incorrect is a 90 minute show of the best-loved songs of the master satirist Tom Lehrer. Written over 50 years ago, Lehrer's songs and his irreverent attitude have survived the passage of time, though his satire is now perhaps darker and more politically incorrect than most of today's wits would risk.

Join pianist, vocalist and all round entertainer Peter Gill in a wonderful performance, reliving the golden days of cutting satire to hear such gems as Poisoning Pigeons in the Park, I Got it from Agnes, The Masochism Tango, The Irish Ballad, I Hold Your Hand in Mine, Pollution, Smut, When You Are Old and Grey and Oedipus Rex.
