The 2015 Wainsgate summer concert series ends on on Sunday October 25 with the return to Hebden Bridge of two former students at Calder High School.
Jemima Foxtrot and Louis Scott are both making big names for themselves.
Jemima blends powerful, sonic heavy poetry about modern life with snippets of her favourite artists’ songs – as well as her own - in a belting singing voice capable of knocking the listener for six. Shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Spoken Word Fellowship in 2015, Jemima performs extensively across the country. For her Wainsgate appearance, Jemima will be performing her debut poetry show Melody - which she launched at the Edinburgh Fringe and which fuses spoken word and song to explore how music attaches itself to memories, people and places.
Louis weaves together soul, blues, jazz, folk and pop influences into a unique, raw and passionate sound. His incredible voice and intricate guitar playing, combined with an honest songwriting approach and charismatic, hearty performances have made him one of Nottingham’s favourites.
“I’ve known Jemima since she was born”, said concerts organiser Dave Nelson. “I hope lots of people who know her and Louis will come along and support them at what promises to be a very special concert.”
The concert starts at 3pm and tickets, which are available at the door, are £10 and £8 with a special price of £3 for those aged 18 and under, although Jemima advises that her show is for age 14+ with parental guidance.
