Bookings are closed for this event.

A brand new pairing of internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Kate Dimbleby and harmonica virtuoso Keith Warmington on harmonica/guitar and vocals.

A remarkably fresh show from two experienced entertainers – songs to make you laugh, cry and sing along. Bringing together a touch of Americana with a British sense of humour, this show will have you humming out the door.

The self-penned songs by both artists are a revelation. Kate’s use of the loop pedal is as unusual as are the lyrics of her songs. Keith Warmington is a virtuoso on the harmonica with a laid back attitude that advertises his years of experience as he strums the guitar and sings us into a place we know, familiar even on first hearing.

Songs by Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Richard Thompson, Leonard Cohen, Kirsty MacColl sit alongside original folk/blues. Kate and Keith sing together and separately, Keith plays his virtuoso harmonica and guitar whilst Kate uses her vocal looper to build complex harmonies from her critically acclaimed 2017 album “Songbirds” and sing with the audience.

“Stunning vocal virtuosity. An artist absolutely at the top of her game.” Tom Robinson, Radio 6 Music

“A shimmering vocal versatility… she has the musical talent and jewel-eyed confidence to guarantee an audience a good time” Evening Standard

“Artist of the Week” Clive Davis in the Sunday Times – “A songwriter who refuses to be boxed in, a free spirit. The uncatagorisable Kate Dimbleby”

Feedback from recent audiences has included:

“I felt every emotion tonight. Except anger. I laughed, I cried, I sang along”

“I had no idea what to expect and I was thoroughly entertained”

“A dynamite collaboration!”
