New years SHINDIG promising a wealth of quasi-acoustic loveliness in a beautiful setting, welcoming Anglo-American husband-wife duo (& clear DIY geniuses) Rue Royale to Cambridge. Welcome guys :)

Joining them will be four-piece instrumentalists Subzar, encompassing in their number guitars, cello and a violin, performing works from their narrative concept EP 'I am Not Here Yet'. Encompassing members of the late & great band The Dawn Chorus, the Retrospective Soundtrack Players "may not be the world's greatest punk/rock/folk/pop concept band, but are in the top one" - writing albums soundtracking their favourite old films and books.

As the latent theme seems to be narrative, the door is open for some of Cambridge's secret enclave of storytellers to get up to the mic. At present date of writing, this includes Allographic and Hammer and Tongue's Fay Roberts, author J.S. Watts, and recently self-published Emily Scialom. It'll be grand :)

Paulette Mae, an emerging Oxford-based choreographer, presents P.S..., you have something of mine, and tattoo in a triptych of new dance theatre. Joined by Oxfordshire-based dancers Ana Barbour and Anja Meinhardt, Contemporary, Street and Butoh dance are woven with spoken word in an evocative and surreal exploration of our attachment to objects, people and space.

'Music that transforms the spoken words of folk legends.' Using the rhythms and natural melody found in Irish speech, composer and producer Gerry Diver has created a unique collection of new compositions. The Speech Project features exclusive spoken word contributions from seminal Irish folk musicians including Shane MacGowan, Damien Dempsey, Christy Moore, Martin Hayes and Danny Meehan and archive interviews from Margaret Barry and Joe Cooley. Key phrases from recorded interviews are the seeds from which his compositions grow into ground-breaking and beautiful works.
