Busy weekend for the Shed

THE Shed in Hovingham has a busy weekend, with Disassembler playing Friday, followed by the Monster Ceilidh Band on Saturday.

“Disassembler reclaims the rhythms of modern dance music, African, Indian and rock music and rebuilds the house in the context of jazz improvisation,” says Shed impresario Simon Thackray.

The line-up is Trevor Warren on electric guitar, Annie Whitehead on trombone, Mark Lockheart on sax, Winston Clifford on drums and Dudley Phillips on double bass.

Disassembler won the award for best foreign jazz group at the Granada jazz festival in 2009.

Time Out commented: “Picking out individuals isn’t the point – this is just a brilliant ensemble. They rock too”.

The Monster Ceilidh Band wield “outrageously funky grooves, mixing elegant traditional playing with raucous rave-like rhythms,” says Simon.

The folk quartet are Amy Thatcher on accordion, Carly Blain on fiddle, Kieran Szifris on mandocello and David de la Haye on electric bass.

They will be joined on Saturday by D’n’B producer the Touch.

Shed gigs are staged in Hovingham’s village hall and begin at 8pm.
