Join us in the build up to Christmas with an evening of multiple musical delights. This year we welcome Pure Fluke, an evolution of the “Ukulele Only” approach that has now grown into a multi-instrument folk-style band playing vintage and modern tunes but still with a unique Ukulele slant. Their eclectic set ranges from 1930s ballads, jive, rock, ska right up to the present day.
Award winning singer-songwriter Megan Henwood grew up in Henley On Thames, and she returns in support of her latest album “River” which draws on her experiences of living by the Thames. Her take on folk often includes Jazz and Electronica influences and whilst she’s often described as Oxford’s Laura Marling, she most definitely has a voice all her own.
Amazing Jazz Singer BB Kean and her band are joined by special guest Purdy for a couple of numbers….
Purdy is a singer, songwriter, artist, well known in Henley for running her monthly Pop Up Jazz Club behind the Kenton Theatre. Purdy has toured with Jools Holland, performed at the Royal Albert Hall, has popular residencies in London and performs music from her own album ‘Diamond In the Dust’ and is currently working on the next! She wants to help Beccy support a cause close to their hearts celebrating these wonderful good time songs!
Katie Moberly is another of Henley’s finest talents and is stirring up a buzz of excitement behind the scenes of the London Jazz world in anticipation of her debut release. She has toured the UK, gracing Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho, with her “sumptuous display of vocal talent” as Jazz Singer for the award-winning Durham University Big Band and delivered spine-tingling performances at Shambala Festival’s Pink Flamingo Jazz Club. The Kenton is very excited to host a sneak preview of her new project in a trio with musicians from the Europe-wide sensation, Nubiyan Twist. As a multi-instrumentalist, Katie also writes music for Henley-based Acorn Music Theatre Company and posts a snippet of a new song on social media every Sunday.
