Mishra ft. Deepa Sri Shakth

“It is a powerful and heady cocktail, bringing together the flavours and ingredients of four different continents, and producing a sumptuous feast for the ears…” David Auckland, Folk Radio UK

An award-winning global folk collective with strong roots in UK folk. They weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has brought them awards including the Christian Raphael Prize and Celtic Connection’s Danny Kyle award.

Kate Griffin on vocals, banjo, and dobro (The Magpies) and Ford Collier on low whistle, calabash/percussion, and guitar (BBC R2 Folk Award-nominated The Drystones) are the songwriting partnership behind Mishra, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to. Mishra are pleased to present their exciting new collaboration with the formidable vocalist and composer Deepa Sri Shakthi (Formerly Deepa Nair Rasiya).

Deepa is an award-winning, London-born vocalist and composer trained in Indian classical music who works extensively in collaborative cross-cultural projects. She has been making waves on the World Music platform internationally and is being increasingly recognised as a pioneering and innovative composer with a deeply soul-stirring vocal style. She is the first British Asian artist to have won the coveted Artist Aloud Jury’s award in India for her acclaimed 2015 Sufi album Destination.

A teaser of this exciting Sufi-Celtic musical collaboration can be viewed below.

Scott Brothers Duo

Acclaimed keyboard duo present a piano duet concert which covers the entire keyboard spectrum with thrilling music for four hands at one piano. The programme includes original works as well as thrilling transcriptions of well known classics, including William Tell Overture and the Adagio from Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

Jonathan and Tom Scott last performed in 2017 and will once again bring a fascinating programme of virtuosic piano duo music, enhanced by the use of the big screen hooked up to a camera so the audience can see the complexities of four hands on one piano keyboard! This was a sell-out event and promises to be a fun-filled evening again.

Brothers Jonathan and Tom perform internationally in instrumental combinations which include Piano Duet, Piano & Organ, and Harmonium & Piano. Their online performance videos have totalled over 70 million views. Recent and forthcoming performances include concerts across the UK, as well as Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Latvia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea.

In 2019 Scott Brothers Duo won the ECHO (European Cities of Historical Organs) competition to create a performance which introduces the pipe organ to a young audience.

Born in Manchester, Jonathan and Tom both studied at Chetham’s School of Music and at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM). Tom read Music on the joint course at The University of Manchester, gained the Sir Thomas Beecham Medal for Excellence in his degree, and achieved a distinction in his Masters degree. He made his concerto debut with the Hallé Orchestra, aged 17, with Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.1 at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Tom is also a keen artist and animator, and creates animations to accompany live classical concerts. This has led to many exciting projects (including commissions by the BBC) and concert performances with orchestras and ensembles worldwide (Canada, USA, Taiwan, South Korea, and Australia).

Jonathan continued his studies in USA and Holland, won the coveted Worshipful Company of Musicians WT Best Scholarship and gold medal, and is a Freeman of The City of London. Jonathan has been a member of the keyboard staff at RNCM since 2001 and is Associate Artist of The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Recent performance highlights have included solo and concerto appearances in Denmark, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Poland, Singapore, Spain, and Taiwan as well as the the world premiere of the new organ concerto ‘6000 Pipes!’ by Sir Karl Jenkins. Jonathan also recently gave a series of Concerto performances and tours with the National :Chinese Orchestra of Taiwan and the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, as well as a solo evening organ recital broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall, London for the BBC Proms.
