TIM CHU & IAN BAILEY: A CELEBRATION OF SIMON & GARFUNKLE
OCTOBER 8th £15
Introducing singer songwriters Tim Chu and Ian Bailey performing “A Celebration of Simon & Garfunkel– The UK’s leading non tribute show”. Now in its eighth year the show continues to please real music lovers up and down the country with a laid back set of arrangements that will take you back down memory lane.
The concert attracts old fans and new and continues to support the arts in rural communities.
Tim Chu has been a professional session musician for many years and his music features in TV, Film and Radio. He has loved the music of Paul Simon from a young age as the original LPs were constantly on the record player! Tim had the vision to put together an ambient show to take to real music lovers around the UK and enrolled the help of Lancashire born Ian Bailey to complete the duo. Ian has been a singer songwriter for many years with 4 critically acclaimed solo albums of his own material to date.
Together they blend in their own unique way without falling into the tribute act category. There will be no make-up, wigs or costumes – Just two great musicians performing some of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic songs in an intimate and relaxed way.
“Everyone loves the music of Simon & Garfunkel and for me no one has recreated it better than Tim and Ian, the concert simply blew me away” Phil Cool, TV comedian, impressionist and musician…
“What a fantastic show with two great guys, two voices and two guitars delivering the best acoustic interpretations of Simon’s classic songs” Sally Naden, BBC Radio.
“Tim and Ian capture the ‘Simon and Garfunkel’ sound perfectly. This is a two for the price of one show, original talent and timeless songs”

Blues and soul become inextricably entwined in award-winning singer-songwriter, Kyla Brox, whose raw talent has seen her described as “the finest female blues singer of her generation”. Winner of the UK Blues Challenge 2018 and the European Blues Challenge 2019, voted Best Female Vocalist in the 2019 European Blues Awards and semi-finalist in the International Blues Challenge 2019 and 2020, Kyla Brox is at the very top of the UK Blues scene.
Daughter of cult blues figure, Victor Brox, the Mancunian vocalist began her career as a teenager in her father’s band and has now honed her own sophisticated sound, as heard on her last two critically acclaimed and award-nominated albums, Throw Away Your Blues and Pain & Glory, which reached No.1 in the IBBA Charts for 2019 and was nominated Best Album in both the European and UKBlues Awards.
Her voice; tender, urgent, gritty, blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain, mixed with the enchantingly fluent guitar work of Paul Farr, inspired bass playing of Danny Blomeley and in-the-pocket drumming of Mark Warburton, combine to make a unique and powerful, often joyous, always emotional experience.
Kyla also plays in duo form with her husband, virtuoso acoustic guitarist, Danny Blomeley, whose playing, by turns delicate and unrestrained, has earned him a following in his own right.
A completely independent artist, Kyla has built her career year on year; starting out at grassroots with local pub gigs and growing to headlining concerts all over the globe, including some of the most prestigious Blues festivals in the world.
With thousands of albums sold and a constantly growing fanbase, Kyla Brox is widely regarded as one of the very best soul-blues singers the British Isles has ever produced.
“The finest female blues singer of her generation” Manchester Evening News
“Manchester’s answer to Aretha Franklin.” Tony Wilson, Factory Records
“Surely one of the finest voices Britain has ever had” Pete Clack, Blues In Britain
“Kyla Brox knows how to handle the gears… the Mancunian vocalist lets songs percolate, raising the temperature by degrees, then giving it both barrels in the final stretch. It’s a thrilling tactic.” Henry Yates, The Blues Magazine
“An authentic soul diva… sensitive, sexy, and with infinite reserves of sassiness” City Life
