Exhibition

Michelle Woodward:

Here Now and Then


Until Sunday 28 February 2016
Michelle Woodward: Here Now and Then
Ink drawings of buildings and structures around Holyhead and North Wales.
The Exhibition contains a number of Michelle's line drawings which are for sale.  In her artist's statement she writes:

"I love the immediacy of pen and ink, the exciting lines and textures that can be made with the pen.  I also enjoy working with a limited colour palette.  The work in this Exhibition combines my love of line and colour, with the proportions, shapes and details that I see in the structures around me.

I  studied Art & Design in London and Brighton in the 1970s.  It was there that I began to develop my interest in making drawings of buildings.  This has developed over the years and the wonderful proportions and textures of the buildings here in North Wales have been a source of inspiration to me for many years.  

These drawings are a personal interpretation and record of the buildings and structures that I love around Anglesey and beyond. 

Having attended the Convent  School as a girl, it is really exciting for me that nearly forty years later, I am now displaying my work in the former chapel, now the Ucheldre Centre.  The drawings ‘Chapel Altar’ and ‘The Sanctuary’ are originals of the altar in the chapel from twenty five years ago. Every time I return to Holyhead my connection to the town and the island is strengthened."

Music Huw Warren
Piano Concert No 2
Saturday 27 February7.30pm



Huw Warren:

The Art of Improvisation 2: Classical Music (Old and New)

The pre-Christmas concert was re-scheduled so you may have seen earlier reference to this concert as being number 3 whereas it is now the second concert!

In the second of this series of three, Huw creates new forms and fusions from music from the classical repertoire.  This concert will also feature projected images to accompany and augment the music. 

His 2002 solo recording Infinite Riches in a little room was Guardian CD of the week and featured as its centre piece a set of variations on a theme of John Dowland.  Further projects since have taken music by Bach, Chopin and Butterworth, and he has worked with many classical artists such as the Orlando Consort, Andrew Manse and most recently baroque record player Pamela Thorby.

Huw has achieved an international reputation for innovative projects, and collaborations over a twenty-five year career.  Equally at home crossing the often exclusive worlds of Jazz, Classical and World music, he combines a beautiful delicate touch with a deeply lyrical musicality.

Huw fuses improvisations based on diverse sources in a surprisingly approachable way - dazzling virtuosity and humour are combined with moments of deep emotion.  What makes The Art of Improvisation unique is the ease in which he draws the audience into his various musical worlds with an informative yet informal, entertaining presentation.

Recent solo performances have included the Back to Bach Festival at Cardiff University Concert Hall and the Great Hall at Dartington as part of the Dartington International Summer School.

Huw Warren is currently Artist in Residence at Brecon Jazz festival, a recording artist for ECM with Quercus (with June Tabor and Iain Ballamy), Jazz tutor and lecturer at RWCMD Cardiff and Head of Jazz Ensembles at Cardiff University. He will release a new solo piano recording in early 2016.

Broadcast NT Live: Hangmen  (15)
 
Thursday 3 March7pm


NT Live:  Hangmen     (15)

Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award winner -        Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity.  But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? 

Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.

Music JINSKI

Saturday 12 March7.30pm

JINSKI

Acoustic folk roots guitar duo


JINSKI are Steve Wegrzynski and Dave Kennedy, two highly individual guitarists/musicians with strong distinctive voices. 

JINSKI has a wealth of great original songs that draw upon acoustic roots, and the singer songwriter tradition, whilst remaining resolutely modern.  They play songs that tell stories of love, joy, loneliness and longing, capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life.  Intricate, soulful, beautiful songs, foot stomping, sing-a-long, raucous songs; music for the head and the heart, full of passion and originality.

As well as headline gigs at clubs and festivals across the country, JINSKI has supported Eliza Carthy, Joe Jackson, O'Hooley & Tidow, Wizz Jones and The Poozies on their travels over the last couple of years.

Piano Concert No 3
Saturday 21 May7.30pm

Huw Warren:

The Art of Improvisation 3: The Great American Songbook

We are delighted to welcome back the Welsh pianist and composer Huw Warren for the last concert in his series of 3.  Tonight's concert features material from the 1920s-50s commonly known as Standards.  Songs by writers such as Cole Porter, Gershwin, Jerome Kern and Rogers and Hart (often written for theatre and musical film) that have endured in popularity with listeners and musicians alike.

The Art of Improvisation is a solo concert with a difference.  Huw fuses improvisations based on diverse sources in a surprisingly approachable way.  Dazzling virtuosity, and humour, are combined with moments of deep emotion.  What makes The Art of Improvisation unique is the ease in which he draws the audience into his various musical worlds with an informative yet informal, entertaining presentation.

This is a programme that works equally well for all music lovers.

Huw has achieved an international reputation for innovative projects, and collaborations over a twenty-five year career.  Equally at home crossing the often exclusive worlds of Jazz, Classical and World music, he combines a beautiful delicate touch with a deeply lyrical musicality.
