    Hannah Scott/The People Versus

    20:00 -23:00
    25/01/2020-23/05/2020

    The People Versus are a narrative led harmony driven act, calling their sound ‘Museum-Pop’ it borrows from a plethora of genres and traditions. Comprising five members, its formation arose almost spontaneously out of a combination of previous collaborations, the band is effectively made up of four ex-lead singers whose combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle, and support the beguiling voice and personality of Alice. Alice’s asexuality provides her lyricism with a rare perspective from which to build poetry out of life. Each song is taut with feeling and longing, as Alice channels dreams, thought, and love through a kaleidoscopic medium of Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.

    One of the ACE Space team saw The People Versus doing a support slot at Arlington where they were the highlight of the evening.  Anyone who is a fan of The Mouletts should not miss this band.

    rom Suffolk via Italy, Hannah Scott performs contemporary folk music and is picking up a loyal following thanks to her distinctive voice, strong melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. She has found her musical home with creative partner Stefano Della Casa and their music has been heard on BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, including a live session on Dermot O’Leary’s show, and praise has arrived from publications such as The Guardian and Clash Magazine. Hannah’s arresting live performances have earned her support slots for artists including Madeleine Peyroux, 10cc and Seth Lakeman and she has twice travelled to New York festival “Mondo NYC”, receiving PRS Foundation funding and running a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund the trips.

    When Hannah and Stefano appeared at ACE Space supporting Holy Moly and the Crackers we had so many positive comments that we just had to get them back for a longer set.

    One Million Tiny Plays about Britain

    ‘Well, answer your own question. I did 1,800 miles in the caravan and drank three gallons of cider. So I’ll ask you whether or not it was a good weekend.’
    A couple peer into an estate agent’s window; two sports fans have a heart-to- heart in the loo; a daughter has questions about her mother’s love life; and as a father helps his son tie his football boots, he realises they are growing apart. If you keep your eyes and ears open, there are a million tiny plays happening every day.
    Overheard conversations from across the country form Craig Taylor’s humorous and poignant look at modern Britain. Laugh-out-loud funny, and sometimes heartbreakingly moving, these miniature insights into other people’s lives reveal the triumphs, disasters, horrors and joys of life in the twenty-first century.
    Originally published in The Guardian, this collage of scenes now form a hugely entertaining show. Following its premiere at The Watermill in 2016 and a hotly anticipated London transfer, One Million Tiny Plays About Britain returns.

    Paul Jones & Dave Kelly

    Ruggedly durable and timeless, the Blues is perhaps more popular today than it has ever been. Young musicians still cut their teeth on its enticing, 12-bar appeal, but its real rewards, true virtuosity, poise and knowledge, only come with age.

    Founder members ofThe Blues Band, Paul Jones and Dave Kelly’s tangled and colourful roots go way back into the true undergrowth of the tradition. As well as their own original material, they not only know and perform the work of the greats, ranging from Howling’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker through to Sonny Boy Williamson – they actually played alongside them, and enjoyed their friendship. After over a quarter century as presenter of his BBC Radio 2 R&B show, as a thrilling singer and harmonica maestro, what Paul Jones doesn’t know about the Blues can be written on a pinhead. The same can be said about Europe’s leading bluesman, Dave Kelly. He’s played with them all, including legends such as James Burton and Buddy Guy. Superb blues vocals combined with guitar virtuosity have elevated Dave Kelly into the higher echelon of international blues performers, where he truly belongs.

    A live acoustic set by this dynamic duo is an occasion you’ll remember. If you’re a true Blues fan, everything you need is here.
