“I was checking my reflection in a cold cup of coffee,
and if I remember with a morsel of precision the gist,
I was whistling a smorgasbord of cheesy old Brazilian hits…”

A show which celebrates the singular joy that comes from that moment when the needle hits the spinning black disc with a gentle fuzzy click, and gives the audience the time and space to just listen.  It’s a magical combination of music and words that will leave you bathed in a warm glow, charmed and slightly baffled in equal measure.

An exclusive opportunity to see an early Edinburgh Fringe preview of Toby Thompson’s new show. In a new and somewhat different take on the spoken word gig, For the Record provides a beguiling framework for Toby’s moving and uniquely musical poetic voice, weaving his poems between the classic vinyl which so often inspired or surrounded their creation.  

What the audience at the first preview said…

'…an intimate opening of the heart.'
'…It’s beautiful'
'Something almost indescribably brilliantly lovely… an absolute feeling of authenticity…'
'…an intimate, inspired, unique, exclusive, immersive experience!'
'Touching and often achingly funny…I’ve never heard vocabulary like this.'

MUSIC: LEWIS CLARK - 'VAUDEVILLE'
Sat, 1 Jun 2019
BOUVERIE HALL, PEWSEY
Vaudeville explores the musical concept of a renegade Harlequin in a show that melds the kitsch vaudeville styles of by-gone days, with wider stylistic innovations. This show ties in with the 250th anniversary of circus in the UK and will be supplemented with original songs from Lewis Clark’s previous album.
 
Imagine a situation where you as a listener actually become a member of the action. Well in this show you are taken by the spirit of Harlequin to explore the realms of delight and wonder of the circus that crosses all realms of kitsch and by-gone music styles. From up beat swing styles to music box, kletzmer and dark cabaret, the show takes you through the eye of the needle, through the light, the night and the half-light. It’s a show that will entertain and perhaps even question the listener’s notions of performance and reality.
