A lazy afternoon with music, tea and cake

An event for all ages, produced by Arctic Circle

Improvising pianist Matthew Bourne has curated a voice-focused event, gathering together a diverse collection of collaborators. This concert will take full advantage of the chapel’s unique space; positioning each performance within the building differently. Matthew himself will guide us through this two hour journey performing and working with the artists and voices he’s chosen to showcase.

Poet Dorothy Lehane will join us at the Union Chapel to read selected sonnets from her latest publication, Bettbehandlung. Lehane is the author of three poetry publications and a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Kent. ‘Intensely personal and highly coded’ — Andrew Duncan

Keeley Forsyth is a composer, singer and actor from Oldham. Built upon sparse arrangements, her music is centred around a singular, emotionally raw and magnetic vocal delivery, by turns devastating and uplifting. The characters who populate her songs tell stories of the high and low tides; of freedom and entrapment, of hard won triumphs and the darker corners of domestic life.

Polly Gone Wrong is an all-female vocal trio singing original songs baked with folk, blues, elements of playful obscurity, and close harmonies. Sometimes they are accompanied by a saw, a bass, a drum, or even beatboxing; sometimes they’re just three female voices in harmony and unison.

Andrew Plummer is a vocalist, guitarist, composer-producer from Exeter, Devon. Plummer has been the creative force – composing, performing and touring nationally, producing 9 albums under his name, his musical leviathan World Sanguine Report and Snack Family the avant-rock trio co-founded in 2011. He draws on a wealth of influences and pens music that reinterprets musical genre, loaded with visceral tales from the dark side of life, love and death.

Aby Vulliamy is a musician and composer, performing and recording frequently as a violist, pianist and vocalist in a range of ensembles and collaborations. Aby’s debut album, Spin Cycle was released in October 2018
