Since then, they have released a "trail-blazing" (PopMatters) fusion of African and Celtic music, bringing together "an irresistible blend of rhythms and lilting spirituality aimed equally at the head, heart and feet" (BBC Music). They perform following the release of their latest album, The Source. "I can guarantee it's a unique and unmissable spectacle," says Folk Radio of their live shows.

Mike Melody (TV antique dealer celebrity) was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Victoria was put in charge of planning the funeral her Dad would want - complete with eulogies, a congregation dressed in tangerine Blackpool FC colours and a New Orleans jazz procession. A year later the doctors realised they had misdiagnosed Mike. But they are going ahead with the funeral anyway... To make this show Victoria trained to be a funeral director. Using those experiences and a huge amount of research Ugly Chief looks at the British Funeral Industry and how we deal with death in modern society. Ugly Chief is a comedy based on true events performed by a genuine father and daughter. It's a eulogy for a living soul. It explores the taboos around death and its practicalities, and the fractious relationship with a parent whose opinions you don't always agree with.
David Bowie is widely regarded as one of the most influential innovators over the last five decades, selling around 200 million albums throughout his career. He first caught the public's eye in 1969, with his space-age mini-melodrama Space Oddity, followed in 1972 by the The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Hits such as Starman, Golden Years, Ashes To Ashes, and Heroes followed, with a re-emergence in the mid-80s with the pop sounds of Let's Dance and China Girl. Then in 2013, came his latest re-incarnation, after a decade's silence. Ultimate Bowie pays tribute to the work of this global superstar, in a show that is visually stunning and vocally impressive. Ed Blaney takes the spotlight and leads an 8-piece band that takes us from Bowie's early years right up to the 21st century. The band isn't called Ultimate Bowie for nothing - they capture the real essence and authenticity of David Bowie in concert!
