Keys to the Stars (classical music) Fri 27th April, 8pm

Friday, April 27, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Throughout his life the Estonian shaman and composer, Urmas Sisask, has felt a strong connection to the stars and composed many pieces inspired by stellar constellations. The Grieg Pianoduo – Elles van der Heiden and Siebert Nix – play three of his pieces, together with one of Schubert’s, in a special concert-with-slides programme. Images of constellations taken with the Hubble and other telescopes are projected in a continuous sequence as a backdrop to the live piano music. Performed many times in the Netherlands, this programme has been a real hit with audiences and needs to be seen and heard live to be fully appreciated.

Young Waters is a five-piece band led by Theo Passingham (vocals and guitar) with Kerry Ann Jangle (vocals), Liam O’Connell (double bass and vocals), Calum Smith (violin) and Rowen Elliot (viola).

Animals (family theatre) Sat 12th May, 2pm

Saturday, May 12, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Animals is a lovely family show about… animals. Big ones, little ones, wild ones, tame ones. It’s also a show about us, and our emotions. Big ones, little ones, wild ones, tame ones.  From the joy of delivering a new lamb with your own hands, to the pain of losing your pet dog, and the confusion of discovering your favourite cow is in love with a tractor! Animals explores how animals help us figure stuff out. Using real and imagined stories collected from 6 year-olds, the show interweaves live music, dance and film into a celebration of our unique relationship with animals. Created by Greg Sinclair, this is a co-production with Perth Theatre.

The Poozies (music) Wed 16th May, 7.30pm

Wednesday, May 16, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The ever-adventurous Poozies have been an institution on the British folk scene since they formed in 1997, and a recent line-up change in 2016 brought together founding member Mary Macmaster and long-term cohort Eilidh Shaw with Orkney’s Sarah McFadyen and Tia Files from Oban. The result has been hailed as the best incarnation yet; in 2018 they released their latest album and look set to be a tour de force for some time to come. As always the band is anchored by the glorious bass of the electro-harp, and swings expertly between innovative tune sets featuring monster twin fiddles and powerful, punchy guitar, and gorgeously eclectic songs with beguiling 5-string banjo and 4-part vocal harmonies.
