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.

MUSIC | ROBYN HITCHCOCK | SATURDAY 11 MAY

One of England’s most enduring contemporary singer-songwriters.

A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as
well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you
can listen to’. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on
April 21 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as
a “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.”

It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop
this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary
imaginings…” – Rolling Stone
