MUSIC | SAM KELLY’S STATION HOUSE | FRIDAY 15 MARCH

The much cherished blues musician brings his ‘groove band’ to the Marine, with dancing very much in mind.

Sam Kelly is a musician with more than 40 years in the business.  His “Station House” band has been featuring on the U.K. music scene for many years. Originating from London’s  “Station Tavern” in the early nineties, Station House was formed from the concept of a blues band, mixing funk and soul rhythms with the diversity of the blues.  Founder members Sam Kelly, TJ Johnson and Dave Clark were joined by lead singer, Root Jackson. The Band held a monthly residency at the Station Tavern for more than a decade.

Fast forward to 2009 when Sam re-launched the band boasting a new line up of Sam Kelly (drums), Paul Jobson (keys, vocals), Richard Sadler (bass),Tony Qunta (guitar, vocals), and Jerome Marcus (percussion).  In 2016, a third “lead singer”, Rowena Poole, joined Sam Kelly’s Station House and this format continues to work at venues and festivals all over Europe..

Station House’s musical catalogue includes Johnny Guitar Watson, Keb Mo, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Gary Moore, Stevie Wonder, Little Feat, to name but a few. The band’s unique sound is influenced by New Orleans second line, soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk. With three ‘lead’ singers supported by percussionist and internationally acclaimed drummer, the result is an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly based in the blues.

MUSIC | KATHRYN ROBERTS & SEAN LAKEMAN | SATURDAY 16 MARCH

Winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman have created an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship


 

The Dartmoor-based husband and wife have twice won the Best Duo title at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2016 and 2013), consistently delivering assured and distinctive performances. Over two decades, they have never been trapped in a groove – they  arealways bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad,  and the political to the passive.

With ‘Personae’, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman present their landmark fifth studio album. It is an eclectic emotional see-saw of a journey, melding ten tracks of traditional ballads and their own self-penned versatile material.

CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS | TUESDAY 26 MARCH

The second outing for our new regular film night — which presents iconic films from the past — features a 1940s satire about a Hollywood film director who longs to make socially relevant dramas.

He sets out on a journey of self-discovery, only to learn the value of creating laughter. Sullivan is a successful, spoiled, and naive director of fluff films, with a heart-o-gold, who decides he wants to make a film about the troubles of the downtrodden poor. Much to the chagrin of his producers, he sets off in tramp’s clothing with a single dime in his pocket to experience poverty first-hand, and gets some reality shock.

Written and directed by Preston Sturges and starring Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake.

Duration: 90 mins

Recorded at the Vaudeville Theatre in the West End, this is the return of Oscar Wilde’s hugely popular masterpiece. It stars Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk), and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen).

MUSIC | PENGUIN CAFE | FRIDAY 29 MARCH

The music of Penguin Cafe Orchestra with an all-star line-up

Penguin Cafe was founded by Arthur Jeffes, bringing together a talented group of musicians from Suede, Gorillaz, and Razorlight, to perform his father Simon Jeffes’ legacy of world renowned Penguin Cafe Orchestra music, ten years after his untimely death in 1997.

Arthur, a talented composer in his own right, quickly began to create new and unique genre-defying music, with the spellbinding philosophy of the Penguin Cafe always in his mind.

Arthur utilizes many different instruments and influences including elements of African, Venezuelan, Brazilian, Bluegrass, Classical, Avant-Garde & Minimalist music, using a variety of instruments from strings, pianos, harmoniums, slide guitars, cuatros, kalimbas, experimental sound loops, mathematical notations and more.

To date, Arthur’s Penguin Cafe has released three acclaimed albums of fresh, innovative and beautiful music that have achieved the seemingly impossible feat of creating something new and different and still exciting the worldwide fan base of original PCO followers.
