Good Wife Hot
Frank and Corrie are local to Brampton and Frank plays for Carlisle Clog…he is a sweet player of the melodeon with an exceptional line in good Northern tunes. Corrie is an excellent fiddler and Northumbrian piper and Trish Winter plays wooden flute and whistles to complete the band…
A new, young performer whose captivating version of Mama Mia is a must-see…

An all-round entertainer, musician and comic who will appeal to all age-groups
‘Agrippa’ by Maddy and friends
A specially commissioned piece following a commander in the Roman army…Marcus Agrippa…he was a personal friend of the Emperor Hadrian…a cultivated and powerful man.
The Roman army was made up of soldiers from all over the Empire…many of whom were stationed on Hadrian’s wall….each company would take its culture, religion and music with it and spread it among its fellow soldiers.
This piece follows Agrippa from the Danube, where he commanded a British contingent back to Maryport where he was stationed at the beginning of the building of the Wall, with soldiers from Spain. Thus we follow this story via music…we have gather a group of superb international musicians who will demonstrate how music moves and changes with foreign influences.
A fascinating journey…
