Scotsman Fringe First winners touring Scotland

thread

Scotsman Fringe First winners touring Scotland

Award-winning Edinburgh theatre company Nutshell is touring Scotland with Thread by acclaimed Scots writer Jules Horne. This darkly funny play explores friendship, the choices we make and who we become when our memories start to fade.

Thread is the second play in Nutshell’s Still Points in a Turning World trilogy and will be touring this October as part of the Luminate Festival, Scotland’s creative ageing festival.

threadCome roll your dice at the Burntisland beetle drive and share Joan, William and Izzy’s tangled lives. Friends since primary school and closer-than-close ever since, identities stitched together as intricately as their homemade party clothes.

Living in the secure but suffocating embrace of a 1950s Scottish seaside community, who gets to become the person they want to be?

Nutshell director Kate Nelson founded the Edinburgh-based company in 2000 with the aim of making intelligent, entertaining theatre through great writing, direct storytelling and unconventional venues.

Two performances of Thread will take place at Renfrew Town Hall on Fri 18 Oct at 2pm and 7.30pm. Tickets to the show cost £10 (£6 conc) and can be booked at the Box Office on 0300 300 1210 or by visiting www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/onlinebooking

Thread is suitable for ages 8+

Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock

Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock

Two of the country’s leading jazz artists collaborate for a special gig at Paisley Arts Centre.

Arguably two of Scotland’s greatest jazz musicians, saxophone and piano partnership Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock are joining their considerable talents together for an unforgettable live show in Paisley.

Interview with Peter Greenwood from www.paisley.org.uk with Tommy Smith

Incorporating themes from the Great American Songbook, this intimate live set will see the pair perform tracks from their duo album ‘Symbiosis’.

Renfrewshire Arts & Museums anticipate that jazz fans will travel far and wide to see the partnership’s unique musicality and sheer artistry, as Smith & Kellock’s trip to Renfrewshire is just one of three shows they are set to perform together.

Jazz fans are urged to book soon to avoid missing this unique collaboration live.

Tommy Smith & Brian Kellock will be at Paisley Arts Centre on 8 Sept at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £12 (£10 conc) and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0300 300 1210 or going online to www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/onlinebooking

 Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock

Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock

What is jazz? Where did it come from and what does it all mean? These and other musical questions can be readily answered by experts like Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock.

Tommy Smith is well known to Scottish jazz fans as one of the world’s leading saxophonists and the founding director of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO). He is also a frontline educator and current artistic director of jazz at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Brian Kellock is an internationally recognized jazz pianist who has worked with many familiar names in jazz such as Art Farmer, Herb Geller and Stanley Turrentine.

Playing together as a duo, they have already surprised the jazz world and delighted countless fans with their wonderfully inclusive interpretations of jazz standards and Broadway melodies. Their readings of Moonlight in Vermont and Skylark have been described as “exquisite”; while The Guardian’s John Fordham wrote, “..(they) can play anything they can think (of), and increasingly think of things other people don’t”.

It has been said that the duet is “one of the most exposed forms in jazz”, but where better to clearly hear the structure, poise and beauty of the most alluring popular music ever composed? On albums like Bezique and Symbiosis Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock have brought a bare truth to You Must Believe in Spring and found the keys to a patently powerful vehicle on Ladies in Mercedes.

Next spring sees the release of their third collaboration The Whispering of the Stars and it promises to be something very special indeed. The mere mention of timeless classics such as Tenderly, Stardust and Moonlight Serenade should be enough to grab the attention. But fans who are able to catch them on tour this year will get a rare advance preview in a repertoire strongly featuring selections from this set.

Jazz is the music of memory, mystery and boundless imagination, but why are Tommy Smith and Brian Kellock so eminently able to communicate its enduring appeal? Well, many other well-qualified people such as those at The Guardian, The Observer and The Scotsman have described them as, “..a scintillating partnership; dazzling; inventive and subtly captivating”. Chris Parker in Ronnie Scott’s Magazine thought their work “luxuriously rich”.

However, anyone lucky enough to have caught them performing Rhapsody in Blue with the SNJO at last month’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe will also know them as thoughtful artists, passionate players and hugely entertaining people. The twelve thousand good folks present at The Montreal Jazz Festival can also testify to their world-class musicianship, natural rapport, easy charm and ready wit.

Maureen Beattie’s award-winning performance is right at the top of our List.

Following an award-winning run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, theatre company Stellar Quines are next headed for Paisley Arts Centre with the critically acclaimed production, ‘The List’.

The List is a deeply moving one woman play by celebrated Québec dramatist Jennifer Tremblay. Stellar Quines’ production stars award-winning actress Maureen Beattie (27, The Enquirer), is directed by Murial Romanes and has a creative team that includes Paisley-born artist John Byrne.

3748_detail

I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it. Even more since she died. But I’m having trouble.

‘The List’ tells the story the story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list. The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.

The List will be at Paisley Arts Centre on Saturday 31August, 7.30pm. Tickets to the performance cost £10 (£6 conc) and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0300 300 1210 or going online to www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/onlineboooking

The Kelburne Cricket Club Paisley

010213102005

The Kelburne Cricket Club

In 1860 just eight men planned to start up their own cricket club they were Robert R. Campbell, Archibald F. Graham, J. Campbell Smith, Frank Martin, Charles Rennison, J.Bain, John Millar and H. Edminson, they each paid 10/6, 52.1/2 pence in new money into a fund in order to create their desired club. They set out to gain support for their scheme, which they dully received from Lord Glasgow and in return for his £10 donation the club was called Kelburne CC after the name of the Lord’s estate at Fairlie.

010213102005

The Kelburne CC first ground were at Blackhall until the council advised them that this site was required for building on in 1898. On the 29th April 1899 the new Whitehaugh ground played host to its first cricket match between Kelburne and West of Scotland and has been their ever since, though new facilities have been added and improved over the years.

We have one of the biggest and best appointed grounds in Scotland, and have hosted cup finals and international matches.

Our 1st eleven plays in the Cricket Scotland 1st Division West and is amongst the top 20 teams in the country.

We also run three other adult sides and also junior teams, starting from the age of 5 up to under 18 level, both boys and girls.

In addition, we take the game of cricket into local primary and secondary schools, providing “Introduction to Cricket” sessions, linking this activity with our regular coaching sessions at Whitehaugh.

The majority of sports clubs nowadays rely on sponsorship, fund raising events and the generosity of their members to balance the books, and we are no exception.
