The Oxley – Meier Guitar project are delighted to be performing at the Hermon Chapel Arts Centre as part of their autumn 2017 UK tour.
This gig will be a part of their second extensive tour (since Feb ’ 17) promoting their new double-album, ‘The Colours Of Time’ – a development from their previous release, ‘Chasing Tales’.
On both of these albums, Oxley and Meier shared writing duties throughout, bringing to the fore their diverse influences and interests in ‘orchestrating’ various guitars.
When playing live, they aim to recreate their broad palette of sounds, bringing at least ten differing guitars with them (nylon 7-string, steel string, fretless, 11-string fretless, sitar-guitar, 12 string, etc.). Having clocked up hundreds of concerts together throughout the UK and Europe over the last five years, they perform with an almost uncanny empathy in their interplay. Expect lush and scintillating soundscapes ranging from Turkey to Brazil!
From 12-2pm, monthly, on Saturdays throughout the autumn, Rick

What better way to spend a Saturday lunchtime.
All adults and children over 7yrs welcome.
Bring a drum if you have one but, if not, instruments will be at hand.
Rick has studied drumming in India and also brings a sensibility of styles
from Africa and South America to add to his own original interpretation
of all things rhythmic.
Expect a joyful noise

Join Professor Gary Sheffield from University of Wolverhampton at this free event for people interested in history.
British Army Fighting Methods on the Western Front in 1917 with KSI1 actions.
“In this lecture, Professor Gary Sheffield assesses how the British army fought during 1917, the year of Passchendaele. Contrary to the Blackadder stereotype, Haig’s Army enjoyed some success, as well as encountering some setbacks, applying the lessons of the Somme and incorporating new tactics and technology into its fighting methods. The lecture will use the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry as an example of a British regiment in 1917.”
Places are FREE but need to be pre-booked.
