WORLD MUSIC


Georgie Fame & Sons


Georgie Fame in Concert


With his much loved blend of jazz and rhythm ‘n’ blues, Georgie has become an icon of the British music scene and consistently works in the highest musical circles where collaborators include Muddy Waters, Gene Vincent, Bill Wyman, Eric Clapton and Van Morrison. To date he has released more than twenty albums and fourteen hit singles, including Yeh Yeh, Getaway and The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde. A bona fide musical legend not to be missed!

Xenon An Exploded Opera by Mikhail Karikis


Xenon is the Greek word for ‘stranger’.This performance is the finale of a project which has been unfolding during five other Festivals in East Kent throughout this year. The work evokes questions about belonging, memory, independence, territory and impossibility. It includes a duet for voice and sounds of stars; a video of an ex-miners’ choir singing the subterranean sounds of a working mine; a recitation of the Declaration of Human Rights and encounters between soldiers, a soprano, a viola player and Death’s Ferryman. An extraordinary happening and a collaboration between Sounds New, Whitstable Biennale, Deal Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, Charivari Day and Canterbury Festival.


The East Kent Festivals Cluster is funded by SEEDA and ACE(SE) and managed by Kent Arts Development Unit.

Rick Wakeman A Very Intimate Evening


Considered ’the best rock keyboardist of all time’, classically- trained Wakeman was a pioneer in the use of electronic keyboards and combining rock with choir and orchestra. From Yes to his legendary album Journey to the Centre of the Earth, film scores, radio presenting and collaborating with almost everyone (interesting) on the planet – Rick’s now back doing what he does best – playing the piano. Legendary.
