The Schmoozenbergs in Concert
7.30pm (doors 7.00pm) - Quorn Village Hall

Reviews - The Schmoozenbergs in Concert

‘The large and enthusiastic audience, which incidentally, covered just about the entire age range, simply lapped it up.’ - Promoter

The Schmoozenbergs are a gypsy jazz quartet, bringing you an upbeat slice of 1930s Paris. With two duelling guitars, a violin, and a double bass, they bring irresistible rhythms and jaunty melodies to create a heart-warming, hip-swinging sound. Paying homage to the pioneers of the genre, the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and the French violinist Stéphane Grappelli, their repertoire includes interpretations of their timeless compositions, as well as pieces by the likes of Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and George Gershwin. A light-hearted show, containing catchy tunes, intricate musical interplay and playful improvisation, this will put a smile on the faces of young and old alike.
Seating will be cabaret style and you are invited to bring your own drinks and glasses.

Booking Information: Tickets are £10 and available from Terry Stirling, t. 01509-414287, e. terry Stirling@ntlworld.com

Time: 7am - On Line, Parish Office and Community Library

The Neighbourhood Plan offers the chance for all residents and businesses to have their say on the future development within the parish and influence how the village evolves. Quorn faces many challenges and opportunities over the coming years. By working together, we can ensure the village develops in a way that meets the needs of everyone.
The Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee organised an open event on 19 August 2017. The event took place in the Village Hall and 157 residents attended and expressed opinions.
The aim of this event was to help engage the community in the development of the Plan and to seek comments on the emerging topics these included the local green space and environment; community facilities and amenities; housing and design; transport and employment. Key stakeholders were also invited to express their views on how they wished to see the village develop.
Building on these comments it is now time to seek the views of the wider community and Questionnaires have been devised, one for the adults and one for the young people (under 18).
The Questionnaires are available to complete ‘online’ from 6th to 30th November 2017.

The FB Pocket Orchestra in Concert
7.30pm (doors 7.00pm) - Quorn Village Hall

Review of The FB Pocket Orchestra in Concert -

‘Atmospheric, yet vibrant, the style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured beautifully ’ Jazz FM

Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket Orchestra explores the repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music.

The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire – taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed.

The FBPO became an ‘official’ project in the spring of 2012 and released its first album in October. The aims of the orchestra are to present a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Seating will be cabaret style and you are invited to bring your own drinks and glasses.

Booking Information:
Tickets are £10 and available from Terry Stirling,

Alma in Concert
7.30pm (doors 7pm) - Quorn Village Hall

review - Alma in Concert.....

Alma were spot-on...the band were completely tight from the first note and continued to take their audience on a whistle-stop tour of European folk dances’ (fRoots Magazine)
_____________________________________________

Alma bring together award winning fiddlers John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective) and Emily Askew (Askew Sisters) with guitarist Adrian Lever (Arhai).

Inspired by fiddle traditions from England and across the world, at the heart of Alma's music is the joyful sound of fiddles playing in harmony nurtured by the sensitive and driving accompaniment of guitar. Alma’s distinctive approach to the gems of each tradition result in beautiful and exciting new arrangements, which tantalise and excite the audience.

Each member of Alma brings their own individual style and influences to the band:

John’s work with Chris Wood in the English Acoustic Collective, ground-breaking string quartet Methera, Patterson Dipper, and Dipper Malkin.

Emily’s extensive experience in early music (playing with The Dufay Collective, Shakespeare’s Globe and at Glyndebourne) as well as her work on the folk scene with The Askew Sisters and the Elizabethan Session.

Adrian’s knowledge of Eastern European music developed through his work with Arhai and Horses Brawl.
2016 saw the release of debut album Varieties on Rootbeat Records. This received rave reviews and airplay on many radio stations.

Tickets are £10 and are available from Terry Stirling
t. 01509-414287 e. terrystirling@ntlworld.com
Seating will be cabaret style and you are are invited to bring your own drinks and glasses.

This concert come through the Centre Stage Rural Touring Theatre Scheme which is supported by the Arts Council and Charnwood Borough Council and promoted in Quorn by Quorn Parish Council for the Old School Project.

The Cory Seznec Band - New Music from the Old
7.30pm (doors 7pm) - Quorn Village Hall

Reviews - The Cory Seznec Band.....

‘Loose, jazz, old-time, bluegrass, it, African melange that seems to come from a deep well of the collective unconsciousness… at its core this is fun, toe-tapping music, equally at home on a summer’s afternoon or blowing the winter blues away.’ (R2 Magazine)
________________________________________

Corentin “Cory” Seznec is a Franco-American musician living in Paris, France. A multicultural household, extensive travels and musical encounters, and a passion for history exposed Cory to sounds from around the world, helping him to develop his own distinct style that reflects his broad interests. Cory focuses on fingerstyle guitar, clawhammer banjo, voice, harmonica, and an array of other instruments. A founding member of Groanbox and Seznec Bros, Cory also helped create the Sawmill Sessions, an Old-Time and Bluegrass collective in Paris. A resident of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for 3.5 years, he was active in two bands MistO-MistO and Damakase, which mix Ethiopian music with other African styles. In July 2016, Cory embarked on a trip with filmmaker Gonzalo Guajardo to Luhya country in western Kenya to make a documentary on some of the few remaining omutibo style guitar players. In October 2016, Cory recorded a video lesson of some of his arrangements of New Orleans-infused fingerstyle guitar for Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop (released early 2017). He is currently finishing his second studio album at Tonehouse Studios outside Paris.

Booking Information: tickets are £10 from Terry Stirling,
t. 01509-414287 e. terrystirling@ntlworld.com
