He is the son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and brother of Martha Wainwright, but Rufus has achieved his success by carving out his own singular sound in the worlds of rock, opera, theatre, dance and film.</p> folk gigs - acoustic gigs - electric pop rock Fri, 04 May 2012 16:11:32 +0000 Breeze Murdoch 4928 at The Speech Project <div class="event-nodeapi"><div class="event-start"><label>Start: </label>3 Mar 2012 - 20:00</div></div> <div class="event-nodeapi"><div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>Etc/GMT</div></div> <p><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:DoNotOptimizeForBrowser /> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--></p><p><strong><span style="font-family: Arial; font-weight: normal;">Using the rhythms and natural melody found&nbsp;in Irish speech, composer and producer&nbsp;Gerry Diver has created a&nbsp;unique collection of new music.</span></strong><span style="font-family: Arial;"></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial;">The Speech Project features&nbsp;exclusive spoken word&nbsp;contributions from seminal Irish&nbsp;folk musicians including Shane&nbsp;MacGowan, Damien Dempsey&nbsp;and Christy Moore.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Arial;">Key phrases from recorded&nbsp;interviews are the seeds from&nbsp;which his compositions grow&nbsp;into ground-breaking and&nbsp;stunningly beautiful works.</span></p> classical community events eclectic gigs - acoustic gigs - electric improvisation music composition new music and improv Sun, 22 Apr 2012 13:39:00 +0000 Moving Tone 4921 at North Wall Arts Centre <p><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:DoNotOptimizeForBrowser /> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><span class="st"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; color: #222222;">The</span></span><span class="apple-converted-space"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; color: #222222;">&nbsp;</span></span><em><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; color: black; font-style: normal;">North Wall</span></strong></em><span class="apple-converted-space"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; color: #222222;">&nbsp;Arts </span></span><span class="st"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; color: #222222;">Theatre in Oxford offers a wealth of thought-provoking &amp; entertaining events designed to excite, educate &amp; enthuse.</span></span></p> choirs classical community events dance gigs - acoustic gigs - electric Music Arts Theatre new music and improv venue workshops Sun, 22 Apr 2012 13:20:08 +0000 Moving Tone 4920 at New Theatre Oxford <p>There has been a theatre on the corner of George Street for almost 170 years. The first theatre built in 1836 was known commonly as the ‘Vic’, and later as the ‘Theatre Royale’ after the company that played there. Forbidden to perform plays during the University terms, the lessee of the theatre resorted to presenting ‘concerts’ or music hall entertainment and by 1880 the theatre had become quite run down.</p><p>The third New Theatre opened in February 1934 and with a wonderful revolving stage (mechanism extant) and increased capacity of 2000 (1,710 seated) attracted all the great dramatic actors, popular and operatic singers and musicians, music-hall entertainers and matinee idols of the age to Oxford. The New’s renowned annual pantomimes (with Vera Legge’s famous Oxford Babes during the war years) became an Oxford family ritual. This was the golden age lasting until the advent of television in the 1950’s when running large theatres became increasingly difficult.</p><p>The theatre is now owned by The Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) who are the biggest theatre owners in the country, owning 40 theatres across the UK. Audiences at the theatre can once again see leading opera and ballet companies, from Welsh National Opera to the English National Ballet, contemporary dance, hit musicals like Chicago and Guys and Dolls, and of course sell-out pop concerts. The venue’s current capacity is 1785 and the building is not listed.</p> classical classical Comedy dance family. gigs - acoustic gigs - electric opera Theatre venue Wed, 28 Mar 2012 10:05:53 +0000 Breeze Murdoch 4893 at Janek Schaefer's Local Radio Orchestra <div class="event-nodeapi"><div class="event-start"><label>Start: </label>5 May 2012 - 11:00</div></div> <div class="event-nodeapi"><div class="event-end"><label>End: </label>5 May 2012 - 17:00</div></div> <div class="event-nodeapi"><div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>Etc/GMT</div></div> <p>Janek Schaefer’s latest sonic creation is an orchestra of radios.
