    Big Band Theory offer an exciting new blend of big band tradition and pop hits.  Based in Leeds, directed by Edd Maughan, this 15-strong line up of twenty- and thirty-somethings are high-quality musicians from across the North of England united by their enthusiasm for making music together.  Making their debut performance at The Witham, they are excited to bring their music to a new audience and to support The Witham’s ongoing fundraising campaign.  Maughan’s bespoke arrangements for the band are new and innovative; expect hits by Arctic Monkeys, Fall Out Boy, Oasis and Calvin Harris – as you’ve never heard them before!  Dancing shoes optional.

    “The guys really play and move together. Immediately I’m smiling – this is what it’s all about”  (Paul Jones, Adjudicator, The Great North Big Band Festival)

    "To whom should I complain?"  When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today. Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production."

    It is said that a change is as good as a rest, and for Katie Doherty it is both a rest, and a change, that provide the backdrop to her latest album 'And Then'  Back in 2007, Doherty became an award-winning songwriter, and released her debut solo album Bridges to much acclaim - including airplay from BBC Radio 2 - leading her to share stages with the likes of Karine Polwart, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and Ray Davies. Life however - as it has a habit of doing - got in the way, putting the brakes for the moment on a soaring trajectory.

    It was after the success of November Club’s rural touring musical Beyond The End of the Road, for which Katie composed the score, that a spark was ignited and The Navigators emerged. Shona Mooney on fiddle and vocals (The Shee, former BBC Radio Scotlands Young Traditional Musician of the year)and Dave Gray on melodeon and vocals (Världens Band) elevate Katie’s songs, and the trio often sound much bigger than a three.

    It perhaps should not be a huge surprise then that much of Doherty’s new album is rooted in her keen observation of the concept of change. Whether the focus be on the changing seasons, life circumstances, the passage of time, or the shifting of social attitudes and behaviour, on And Then we see Doherty shine a light on how it feels to be part of a world that can be hard

    “Hers is an ascent worth following… and then some.” - Folk Radio

    “And Then is a timely interval, a brief moment if respite, an oasis of tranquility…thankfully there are those in the world who have the foresight to take stock and recognise whats important” FATEA Magazine

    “Real life has rarely sounded as good.” - NARK Magazine

    “This is lovely!” - Mark Radcliffe

    “And Then is poetic, original and brings a traditional folk style into the 21st Century” - Maverick Magazine

    “And Then, well, play it again. It’s an album of great musicianship to bring you joy and was well worth waiting for” - ArtsDesk.com"
