Peter Knight’s Gigspanner

Saturday, 25th November 2017

His departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span has enabled fiddle player Peter Knight to turn his full attention to his trio Gigspanner. In the process he has established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene.
Gigspanner has introduced a whole new audience to the extraordinary musicianship of Peter Knight, a violinist whom many consider to be in a league of his own.
One of our most popular acts at Calstock Arts, their 2017 visit celebrates the launch of their brand new studio album, The Wife of Urban Law. Peter is joined by Roger Flack on guitar and Sacha Trochet on percussion, both powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.
Doors and bar 7.00pm, start time 8.00pm

Flats and Sharps

Saturday, 2nd December 2017

2017 has been another big year for young Cornish outfit Flats and Sharps: a hit debut album, nationwide sell out shows and a packed festival schedule including Australia, U.S.A, Ireland and mainland Europe. The band continue to gain new fans wherever they play.
Hailing from Penzance, in the South West of England, Flats and Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk, Country & Pop, performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five incredible young musicians have honed their skills in 400 live performances over five years, charming and wowing audiences along the way.
Flats and Sharps have come a long way from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds to performing on the Town Square stage at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London, at Proms in Hyde Park, London which was recorded for later broadcast on the Bob Harris Country show on BBC Radio 2. Along the way that have played for (and with) the Governor of Kentucky (who jumped on stage to play with them), won fans at scores of festivals including Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Maverick, Ireland’s Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival and many Bluegrass and Folk Festivals in Europe
Flats and Sharps are ones to watch out for, five talented young men who make friends wherever they play.

Truro Choral Society sings Handel Messiah

Saturday, 9th December 2017

Truro Choral Society returns to Truro Cathedral to sing Handel’s enduringly popular masterpiece of 1741, Messiah, conducted by Martin Palmer and accompanied by Truro Symphony Orchestra.
The superb soloists will include tenor David Webb, who as part of English National Opera’s company sang Frederic in The Pirates of Penzance and Messenger in Aida this year and will appear as Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream next March. Joining him on the dais will be the accomplished soprano Suzanne Manuell, who has appeared at the Royal Albert Hall and Royal Opera House and performed with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic and Northern Sinfonia. Tim Carleston, countertenor with The Queen’s Six, the male-voice a cappella group based at Windsor Castle, will be singing alto and renowned baritone George von Bergen, a regular performer with ENO, will sing bass.
“A sparkling and uplifting performance”, “delivered with perfection” and “Martin Palmer again achieved perfect balance between the large choir and orchestra” are just some of the comments reviewers and audience members have made following the choir’s previous performances of this wonderful baroque-era oratorio.
Considered by many as the start to the Christmas season, this concert is always a sell-out occasion, so early booking is advised.
Time: 7.30pm
Tickets: adults, £18; under 19s, free. From Box Office Cornwall (www.hallforcornwall.co.uk; 01872 262466).
