DR SCHWAMP, SAT 4TH FEB REVIEW

Posted: Tuesday 21st February 2017

DR SCHWAMP, SAT 4TH FEB REVIEW

And It arrived, a long, sleek Shwampmobile which parked (sort of discreetly) in the quiet lanes on Halesworth and the doors of The Cut opened to welcome Dr Schwamp and their travelling fans.
A buzz could already be felt, Aafke and Imogen had seamlessly arranged the night, the café staying open especially late to feed the hungry traveller, the bar was in full swing as guests lined up with eager anticipation.
Dr Schwamp played marvellously, never faltering throughout their nearly two hour set! Beginning with poetic musings over their time in the Yukon inflected with the occasional instrument before bursting into songs from the new Gold Rush themed album.
They look as good as they sound with a carefully considered character curated for each member doing everything to create an experience as much as a gig. Playing to an arrangement unusual for them- a seated crowd- they conquered the room quickly, with everyone soon up and dancing.
Lead singer Sean MacGloin occasionally pulls out the bagpipes, violin and harmonica (not all at once but we are sure he could) enhancing their musical arrangement, giving it much variation and gusto. Their new album was played in full with their old favourites thrown on the end for good measure. Fantastic bass lines, riffs, horns and drumming coming at the audience from all angles with unrelenting energy. Trevor, sound engineer at The Cut, masterfully pulled out all the elements.
Each song was as driving and danceable as the next, there is definitely something for everyone in this band. They will make an unmissable festival set, dragging all proximal ears into their tent!

EXHIBITION: GEORGE FARROW-HAWKINS

Posted: Friday 17th February 2017

EXHIBITION: GEORGE FARROW-HAWKINS

Our new exhibition, which is showing until Saturday 18th March, is now on display.

George Farrow-Hawkins sees art as a means of being in the world. As a tool of self-knowledge and apprehending ones own subjective notion of existence. Authenticity to ones own experience is sought through investigating the idea of memory of touch. George's artwork, which takes the form of raw materials such as graphite and carbon applied to surfaces such as bedsheets, paper and hair exist as the residue of a lived moment and the visceral embodiment of the people and environments around him.

DARK ENERGY & DARK MATTER

Our ideas about the Cosmos have changed radically over time. Indeed our idea of time itself has been altered. What does that mean for planet Earth? Join us for an exciting journey where we shall go boldly, [as we know our grammar], into the final frontier… The Universe.

For the first of the 2017 Science Cafe season, the well known Astrophysicist  and Astronomer Professor Michael Rowan-Robinson of Imperial college London, will discuss Dark Energy and Dark Matter.

Professor Rowan-Robinson is a local man, living in Southwold, and writes a monthly column in the Southwold Organ about astronomy, tides, coastal erosion and climate change called Stars'n Tides.  In addition he is Honorary President of the Darsham And Surrounding Hamlets (DASH) astronomical society. He is strongly involved in astronomy outreach activities, frequently giving talks about astronomy and space to primary schools, festivals, and meetings such as this one.

Professor Rowan-Robinson is also, and increasingly interested in the history and philosophy of science.

Mr Richard Symes will be chair person for the evening.

Food  served from 6.30
The talk will begin at 7.30 and end at 9pm
