Thursday 8 MarchMiranda Sykes at Seagull Theatre Lowestoft
The Seagull Theatre, Morton Road, Pakefield, Lowestoft, NR33 0JH
Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with 'Show of Hands' is returning to her roots with a solo tour and latest album. After a career spanning over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring as she started out: One woman, one bass, and one guitar. BORROWED PLACES, released in 2017, is her debut solo album and draws its inspiration primarily from the songs and landscape of her native Lincolnshire but seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years. With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself, Miranda interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with us all, wherever we live and it is one you won't want to miss. This tour will include previously unheard tracks from her forthcoming new album due for release in 2019.

Saturday 17 MarchOur European Friends
St Peters-by-the-Waterfront, College Street, Ipswich, IP1 1XF
Come along to St Peters-at-the-Waterfront for an evening of music from Europe that's become as familiar here as pizza and baguettes. St Peters Band perform music from the Paris club strip and the theme from a classic French film; paso dobles to get your feet tapping, a peasant dance from central Europe and much more including a spectacular vision of a legion entering ancient Rome. We share our concert with St Patrick's Day so also expect something from the emerald isle. And Scandinavia gives us an suitable Swedish pop song- the one about a divorce. We also have very special guests bringing their own European flavour to the evening- Eleonora Bulatova (piano) and Francois Caffin (accordian).
There is a bar and a raffle with great prizes. The concert is in aid of Ipswich Citizens Advice, so come along not just for an enjoyable evening but also to support this valuable charity
Tickets £6 advance/ £8 on the door

Saturday 17 MarchIpswich Remembers
2.30pm & 7.30pm
Corn Exchange, King Street, Ipswich, IP1 1DH
Commemorating local stories from the Great War of 1914-18 and featuring Eternal Light: A Requiem by Howard Goodall.
To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, music, dance, poetry and animation combine to create an immersive, thought-provoking and moving event. Remembering the town's part in that conflict with personal stories of Ipswich people, both at home and on the front lines, leading up to and during wartime.
Choreographer Mary Davies, supported by DanceEast, with a community cast from across Ipswich, will enact the stories with music specially commissioned from composer Huw Morgan. The Suffolk Poetry Society and historians from Ipswich Choral Society will recreate the news and people's experiences amongst songs from the war years.
The performance concludes with Ipswich Choral Society and Music Director Robin Walker, performing "Eternal Light: A Requiem" by Howard Goodall. The soloists are soprano Gwendolen Martin and tenor Tom Randle.

Sunday 18 MarchAnonymous was a Woman
St Peter’s Church, The Street, Westleton, Suffolk, IP17 3AF
'For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.'
This thought-provoking observation by Virginia Woolf reflects our acknowledgement that music and poetry by women has often been diminished in the past. It provides the inspiration for an innovative programme devised by Vetta Wise, the conductor of the 'nine incredible voices' of Seraphim.
This year is significant - it is the centenary of the enfranchisement of millions of women, and Seraphim's concert will provide a variety of works by, and for, creative and inspiring women. You will experience early medieval pieces which were created and sung by nuns; later composers and poets, only now being celebrated, such as Lili Boulanger (her centenary this year) and Emily Bronte (200 years since her birth); John Tavener's honouring of great women through orthodox Mother Thekla's words; and exciting living composers, including Carlotta Ferrari, Ana Fernandez and local Suffolk composers and poets such as Bridget Cousins and Amy Robinson. Pianist for the evening will be the dynamic Karen Smith.
£13.50 inc. post-concert refreshments
Tickets available now from Westleton Stores, or by phone or email.

Monday 16 AprilFeast of Fiddles 25th Annual Tour
The Apex, Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 3FD
Little did the band think it would be setting off on its 25th annual spring tour in 2018 but what started as an idea in a folk club has become a national folk-rock institution. Feast of Fiddles has been variously likened to a 'group of geography teachers' or 'Bellowhead with bus passes!' but doesn't seem to be slowing down any. A band of friends that puts on a show of huge dynamic range performed with passion, joy and a liberal dose of fun. Typically, fiddlers Peter Knight (Gigspanner, Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Lindisfarne) and Garry Blakeley (Band of Two) add the large range of fiddle playing styles to the rock back-line of guitars, keyboards, sax and accordion all held together by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks. Fast forward to 2017 and their sixth album entitled Sleight of Elbow was released, the new album is something of a departure for the band as it features a lot of original compositions from within the band and only a single traditional tune.
A live music entertainment like no other on the circuit which is guaranteed to be enjoyed by even the most doubting of friends dragged along!
