The Hearth's Music Programme for 2018 is sponsored by Story Homes


Friday 23rd February, 7.30pm



This concert is a special evening brought by the Town Twinning between Prudhoe and Mitry-Mory, Paris.  For the last 25 year, musicians from the two towns have visited each other, and we are delighted to host a concert featuring musicians from both countries.  Shamans Jazz from France will play a repertoire of jazz standards and original compositions while the Collective Folamour (Shaman's Jazz and members of the Rob Hindhaugh Band) will play fusion jazz with a sprinkling of rock.
Tickets are priced at £5 each, available from The Hearth Cafe, 01661 853 563
The Cafe will be open from 5.30pm for evening meals, please book.



Friday 16th March, 7.30pm


Mark Bloomer and Andrew Cadie make up folk duo Broom Bezzums,  who, despite being based in Germany, make music based on Anglo – Celtic traditions,  the music of Andrew’s Northumbrian homeland and the formidable rock heritage of Mark’s Black Country roots.

Andrew’s Northumbrian pipes are the most obvious local reference, while his fiddle playing is heavily influenced by neighbouring Scottish styles. Mark, a seasoned drummer, learned to play the guitar and mandola in his years as a stalwart of the Cork session scene.

Live, the rhythmical element is expanded on more dynamic numbers with guitar-slapping, tambourine-stamping and a pulsating foot drum. As singers, their full but very different voices harmonise to a surprisingly dense fusion. The tales in their own compositions and in their versions of traditional songs hark back to their itinerant lifestyles, political alienation and the love stories that caused them both to land in Germany in the first place.

Tickets for this concert are £12.50/ £7.50 for under 19s, from The Hearth Cafe, 01661 853 563. Tickets can also be reserved by emailing office@thehearth.co.uk

The Hearth Cafe will be open for evening meals from 5.30pm, booking essential.
