A national radio regular and with several albums to her credit, including the hit Songs of Dory Previn, Kate Dimbleby has been described by The Times as ?One of the most versatile singers on the jazz/blues circuit'. A natural born performer and drawn to music from a young age, she grew up in a family where performing was the norm. Her father is the broadcaster David Dimbleby and her mother was a trained classical singer. Her uncle on her mother's side played jazz piano, trumpet and blues harp, and inspired her with his collection of gramophone records.
"For years I've made shows about other people's voices and stories - hiding behind the smooth sophistication of Peggy Lee, the bold blues of Bessie Smith, the fragile tones of Dory Previn. But I've always had another nagging voice in my head - what's my true story?" So I started listening... recording the sounds and people around me. If they had a song, what would it be? "This show is about the voices we keep locked up inside. About the need for connection. Outside and in. About me and you. Right here, right now" Kate Dimbleby.
Keith is well known across the country only as a singer/songwriter in his own right but as a record producer working with Jazz greats Garry Potter and Annette Peacock and roots artists such as Blues Guitarist Michael Messer and Luke Daniels new folk band Broderick.

The Infernal Galop - A French dance with English subtitles - This is France as seen by the uptight English imagination, with all the traditional clich?s joyously paraded for our entertainment and climaxing in Offenbach's inevitable Can-Can!

Moving and hilarious, this heartfelt pastiche explores notions of national character from a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar, Noel Coward and Percy Grainger, amongst others. Spitfire - An advertisement divertissement: A celebration of male vanity and an affectionate comment on the preening grandeur of the danseur noble, it places Perrot's Pas De Quatre (originally made as a kind of 'diva-off' for the four leading ballerina's of the 19th Century) in the world of men's mail order underwear advertising.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife... The ultimate romantic comedy, Jane Austen’s story of the five Bennet sisters and their relentless pursuit of suitable husbands is one of the best-loved novels ever written, constantly topping the polls of favourite books. When feisty Elizabeth Bennet first meets handsome bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited. When she later discovers that he has scuppered the relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, the family’s lives are turned upside down as Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and pokes gentle fun at the affectations and etiquette of provincial middle-class life.
Shaw's dramatisation of a Cockney flower girl's metamorphosis into a lady is not only a delightful fantasy but also has much to say about social class, money, spiritual freedom and womens' independence. Its combination of ideas and social comment, together with its rich comic characterization, make it one of the most enduring and entertaining of English comedies. Henry Higgins, Professor of Linguistics and confirmed bachelor, wagers that within six months he will transform flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who can take her place in high society. Shaw's masterpiece is both brilliantly funny and a devastating critique of the English class system. This play formed the basis of "My Fair Lady".
