Callaghan Comes to Buckingham
Three-time BBC Radio 2 playlisted singer songwriter Callaghan will complete a nationwide tour with an appearance at Buckingham’s Radcliffe Centre on 27 April.
Now based in the US and working on a series of EPs with producer Anthony Resta, whose credits include Duran Duran, Blondie and Elton John, Callaghan says she loves coming home to perform and is looking forwards to appearing at Buckingham for the first time in a tour which also takes in the likes of Liverpool and Glasgow as well as London’s Bush Hall.
Originally from Lincolnshire, Callaghan moved to the USA in 2010 to tour and record with Atlanta based Grammy nominee Shawn Mullins. In 2015, after five years of building her audience across the USA, she returned to the UK with her second album, A History of Now.
Highlights include two appearances at the massive C2C festival and festival appearances at Cornbury, Celtic Connections, SummerTyne Festival, The Secret Garden Party and Cambridge Folk Festival. She’s also played live sessions for BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris and Good Morning Sunday and BBC London’s Gaby Roslin and Robert Elms as well as at local BBC stations across the UK.
Doors open 7pm, music 8pm, tickets £15/20 available from: Graham Wylie - email@example.com, telephone 07798 686 724.
Stripped Back Boden at The Stables
Jon Boden’s critically acclaimed album ‘Afterglow,‘ released last October, attracted considerable attention, including a BBC Radio 2 playlisting for the first single from the album ‘All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight‘. As well as ecstatic audience reactions at live shows.
He performs both solo and with new 11-piece big band, The Remnant Kings but it’s as a solo performer he arrives at The Stables, Wavendon, on Sunday, 22 April. Expect some stripped back versions of tracks from Afterglow and other songs.
As a multi-BBC Folk Award winning artist, Jon Boden has become woven into the fabric of the English folk scene, having established his name first as one half of Spiers & Boden and then for his role as frontman for one of the most successful English folk bands ever, Bellowhead. He is now venturing into a more mainstream sound, although those folk music roots are still there.
