Schtumm Presents...Chai For All / Radio Banska

 —  —

The Queens Head, High Street, Box, Corsham

A World music spectacular - expect delicious sounds and dancing!

Chai For All

Exciting and entertaining, Chai For All plays Old World Yiddish folk, New World Yiddish theatre songs and jazz-tinged klezmer. A magnificent musical journey from the haunted Eastern European shtetls, through the dimly-lit basement bars of tango-crazed Buenos Aires, to the vibrant neighbourhoods of swinging New York.

Impassioned female vocals lead the party, joyously backed by trumpet, guitar and percussion. With fantastic music, brilliant audience rapport and more than a touch of goodtime showbiz, this is a set guaranteed to raise the spirits.

lineup: Marianna Moralis - vocals, David Mowat - trumpet, Knud Stüwe - guitar, Simon Leach - percussion

Radio Banska

A jazz/world-music quintet, Radio Banska has worked across the southwest since 2012, mostly on the arts centre and jazz festival circuit.

After the sad passing of founding violinist Nina Trott, the band experimented with different line ups, including Bristol sax man Craig Crofton - but is currently working with virtuoso accordionist Mirek Salmon, a perfect fit for the mesmerising, original compositions.

A highly melodic, jazz infused blend of Levantine mystery, dark Balkan passion and Latin rhythms.

“ ... an extraordinarily powerful band – a kind of Levantine zeppelin ... “

“ ... a delight of fusion jazz - often surreal, always hard driving ... “

Schtumm.... in the Longroom

The Longroom at The Queens Head in Box has been host to over 40 years of Live Music. The room is limited to 40 seated and this really is as many as we can fit! It is a wonderfully intimate space where you'll be completely enchanted by the performances.

There is a selection of tables and chairs and we recommend you arrive early to claim your prized seat and viewing position. There will be table service for drinks too!

As you access the pub via the carpark entrance, the room is situated at the end of the corridor past the toilets. There is a small step as you enter the room and a ramp is available for mobility access.

Parking is available at The Selwyn Hall Car Park - a short walk from the venue.

Tickets £10 (+Eventbrite Fees) 100% of the ticket price goes directly to the musicians on the night. The venue makes what it can from drink sales and the Schtumm.... team work entirely voluntary to enable Grassroots music to grow.

Mazl & Brokhe: Yiddish Song

 —  —

The Greenbank, 57 Belle Vue Road, Bristol BS5 6DP

Imagine: it's the late 1950's in London and there's an adventurous Jewish dance band who mix Yiddish songs and klezmer with musical influences that have been drifting in from the US - the great songs of the American Yiddish theatre - and from the Argentine dramatic tango styles. That's the cheerful conceit behind Chai For All's 'Mazl & Brokhe: Yiddish Song' set.

Marianna Moralis: vocals, David Mowat: trumpet, Knud Stuwe: guitar and Simon Leach: percussion
