A Day with the Mandolinquents - Hilary James & Friends: Simon Mayor's Mandolinquents + Hilary James
Mandolin Workshops: 1pm to 5pm (with break)
Evening concert - 7pm - 9pm Workshop & concert £60 (16 and under £45)
The Mandolinquents feature everything from hot swing and ragtime instrumentals from the mandolin orchestras of the 1930s: Irving Berlin, Mozart, Ravel and Tchaikovsky to lively reels and beautiful traditional Irish airs to Chinese and Brazilian folk tunes.
All this played with infectious fun, off-beat humour and stunning virtuosity on mandolin, mandola, mandocello, mandobass and classical guitar, with the occasional burst of song or fiddle.
Simon Mayor's Mandolinquents tour dates
Hilary James "elegant singing" (Daily Telegraph) has received much acclaim: quintessentially English but easily crossing the great musical divides from British ballads to blues and Berlioz. She's famed too for an unlikely taste in bass instruments - she could turn up with her giant mandobass or slimline, semi-acoustic double bass, playing anything from Vivaldi to bluegrass and even managing a step-dance if the wind is in the right direction.
