Stephen K Amos is back on the Stables stage this evening with a spanking new show, Welcome to My World.

The man who puts the cha-cha into charm and the pow! into polite also happens to be a deep-thinking, problem-spotting, question-asking sort of a fella and now he wants you to meet his inner friend.

We’ve seen him rock the venue – in a comic way – in the past, and can vouch for Amos’ awesomeness.

Tomorrow night, Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri will be live under the spotlight.

Unbelievably, last year marked Kiki’s half century in the business, and by way of celebration Kiki and Carmelo released the album A Place Where I Can Go.

Expect their own material, unique covers and Kiki’s hits including Don’t Go Breaking My Heart and I Got the Music In Me.

Stage 2 presents blues-rockers Albany Down, with special guests The Billy Walton Band.

Viva Santana have more than three decades worth of tunes to play with when they step up and do the tribute thing on Saturday night.

How good are they? Well, Classic Rock mag placed them in the top five ‘must-see’ tribute bands working the circuit.

Stage 2 will play host to The Jennifer Crook Trio. Drawing on Jennifer’s Americana influences, but with a distinct English story-telling side, this is first-class contemporary folk.

Solo guitarist Martin Taylor has long been revered for his finger-style guitar playing, and a signature blend of virtuosity, emotion and humour.

He’s self-taught too. Oh, to have just a pinch of his talent!

Blofeld and Baxter: Memories of Test Match Special is Monday’s attraction.

Settle back and let Henry and Peter regale you with tales from memory lane and ‘direct from the booth’ insights from a summer of cricket.

Ensemble 360 will be a busy bunch on Tuesday – they play live at 1pm with the show for schools, Crazy Creatures, and then step back into the glare in the evening for the full performance – featuring pieces by Dvorak and Mozart.

Wednesday evening’s show is War Correspondents by Helen Chadwick Song Theatre.

The performance comprises testimonies, music and physicality in a ‘multidisciplined song cycle performance which depicts the extraordinary stories and life-changing experiences of war journalists...’

Particularly poignant given the current climate.

Last up this week – on Stage 2 – is folk-Americana trio Red Molly, but tickets are scant.

If you miss out on the live front, we suggest you seek out their release The Red Album.
