Sunday Night Lives at The flying Pig is back
Lots more details to come but heres the important bit…
This month we have music from Mark Shepherd, Eli Bre and James White and poetry from Afrodita and me — I don't often perform at my own nights but thought this was a good one to try out a set
Cambridge singer-songwriter Mark Shepherd plays his original brand of thought provoking Indie-Folk at festivals and events across the UK and USA. His strong, distinctive vocal is complimented by powerful and melodic acoustic guitar and his songs often explore the darker side of life and the world in general. Mark and his music are sure to stay with you long after you finish listening
The Swiss Singer/Songwriter Eli Bre moved to Cambridge last autumn and released her new Single «Ceasefire» on the 25th of May this year. Before that she'd be living in Spain, where she recorded her Debut album and presented it with a set of international musicians. Once you've heard her perform, you'll recognize her bluesy folk tunes with 12-string guitar and a characteristic voice straight away.
Afrodita Nikolova has published the poetry collection “Omajnina”, awarded “Lesnovo Bells” prize (2010). Her work has appeared in Balkan and UK magazines and anthologies. She won the poetry slam for Macedonia and neighbouring countries (2014), was a finalist at the European slam (2014) and the first Macedonian poet at the World poetry slam, Paris (2015) and has regularly performed in Cambridge and the UK.
James White's debut EP, The Lost & Forgotten, extraordinarily sold out of the first run of physical copies on the day before it’s official release. Donating all royalties made from his music to mental health (MIND) and refugee related causes (War Child, Help Refugees as well as personally delivering supplies and helping out around refugee camps), James is currently working on new ways of raising awareness and funds for causes close to his heart through his musical escapades.
His work has seen him interviewed and playing live on the BBC, as well as various interviews on national, regional and community radio stations as well as in newspapers and online articles before making the Glastonbury Festival's Emerging Talent long list for 2017 as well as playing shows in France, Italy, Belgium as well as across the United Kingdom.
