In 1970s Denmark, a married couple, Anna (Trine Dyrholm, who won Best Actress at the 2016 Berlinale for her performance) and Erik (Ulrich Thomsen), inherit the large house that Erik grew up in. To large for them to occupy themselves, they eventually decide to start a commune. All goes well to begin with however the couple begin to drift different paths and eventually Erik confesses to having started an affair. In the spirit of free love, Anna tries to reconcile this situation rather unconventionally. It can’t end well.

“Dyrholm … movingly captures the struggles of a middle-aged career woman who revels in the new freedoms of the 1970s, while ultimately falling victim to them.” – Washington Post

“A messy, tender window into the world that shaped him [Thomas Vinterberg].” – Entertainment Weekly

“The Commune may veer towards sentimentality in the final act…but overall this is a warm, sharply characterised and absorbing melodrama.” – Time Out

Talented getaway driver Baby relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best . After meeting the woman of his dreams, he sees a chance to ditch his shady lifestyle and make a clean break. Coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), Baby must face the music as a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Baby Driver is easily one of the coolest films of 2017. A thrilling heist movie rammed with superbly choreographed high-octane car chases all played out to a killer soundtrack that drives adrenalin (and will sound amazing on the Centenary Center’s new sound system).

“An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year.” – Empire

“Put in your metaphorical earbuds, turn the key in the ignition, and enjoy the cinematic highlight of the summer so far.” – The Atlantic

“Edgar Wright’s start to finish sensation is blessed with killer car chases, a star-making turn from Ansel Elgort, the year’s best soundtrack and the most fun you’ll have at the movies all summer.” – Rolling Stone

Jo Harman @ Centenary Centre
Jun 16 @ 8:00 pm – 10:15 pm

 

Widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest ever soul/blues fuelled voices, JO HARMAN remains a genre-defying, independently minded artist of rare credibility, who makes sincere and heartfelt music, often compared to that of the ‘golden age of music’.

Jo recently released her second studio album ‘People We Album’ to much critical acclaim (see accolades at foot of the page) and no little commercial success. Indeed the ‘lead single’, ‘When We Were Young’ (featuring Michael McDonald) achieved BBC Radio 2 play-listing, as well as play listing on other mainstream national stations across Ireland (RTE1) and Europe. The album has also made various ‘best of’ lists for 2017.

A multi award winning/nominated performer, Jo has achieved considerable success at home and abroad, headlining prestigious venues and festivals throughout Europe, North America and beyond, including playing as one of eleven (otherwise household name) artists to 300k people at Parkpop, in the Hague. Amongst many other career highlights in her relatively short career, Jo was also invited by Amnesty International to perform at their prestigious ‘Ambassador of Conscience’ Award in Berlin alongside the likes of Patti Smith and Joan Baez,

Jo has indeed recently been asked to guest on Motown Songwriting legend Lamont Dozier’s ‘Reimagination’ album – alongside other legendary guests such as Gregory Porter and Sir Cliff Richard- and, in fact, she duets with Lamont on the lead single ‘Reach Out, I’ll Be There’. She’ll be touring Japan with Lamont as part of that project, as well as featuring on his prestigious UK tour.

https://www.facebook.com/joharmanofficial/videos/2211382089089399/

Come hear why Rag ‘N Bone took to social media to proclaim Jo as ‘one of this country’s finest talents’ and why soul super star Michael McDonald advised ‘hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience’.

The show will be a full band performance comprising Jo’s world class musicians (with CV’s to match) on guitar, keyboards, bass and drums, in addition to Jo herself on lead vocals (and stories!).

 

 

Sometimes you hear a voice that leaves you speechless – †Huey Morgan, Fun Loving Criminals on his BBC Radio 2 show

On course to be the finest UK female blues soul voice” – Gavin Martin, Daily Mirror

“Cracking rootsy blues singer well known to festival audiences” – Mail On Sunday

“What a voice!” – Classic Rock Magazine

“Stunning. Harman’s music mainlines the human soul“ – Classic Rock Blues Magazine

‘It It was my great privilege to work with her. Listening to her interpretative one of my songs was a spiritual experience” – Michael McDonald (Soul superstar and Doobie Brothers frontman)

“I believe this lady to be one of the finest singers this country has to offer! She really is tremendous! I hope our paths cross again” – Rag N Bone Man

“An exquisite album rooted in the classic, timeless music of past generations, and quite possibly the finest blue eyed soul vocal performance you’ll hear all year.”  Get Ready To Rock

“Jo mines pop, soul and gritty blues with conviction” – The Daily Mirror

John Miller and Grant Dermody (plus special guests Blue John and Papa Cass) @ Centenary Centre, Peel
Jul 27 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Blue John Media is delighted to bring the incredible world-renowned US blues and roots music musicians John Miller (guitar/vocals) and Grant Dermody (harmonica/vocals) to the Isle of Man. This show at the Centenary Centre is only one of two shows they are performing together in the British Isles before teaching guitar and harmonica at Blues Week, in Gloucester, UK. 

In addition to being a phenomenal musician and recording artist, John Miller has an incredible reputation as a music tutor and has presented a number of tuition DVDs for Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop on the music of several country blues guitar legends including Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten and Furry Lewis (to name but a few).

The late great fingerpicking hero John Fahey described John as ‘just brilliant’ and fellow fingerpicking legend Duck Baker said: “This is not the boy on the magazine cover but the guy the pros admire and cop licks from (I can attest to this).”

Grant Dermody is a harmonica master who has made amazing solo albums, trio albums with John Miller and Orville Johnson and has recorded and performed with other musical giants.

Among those has been Eric Bibb, who describes Grant as “One of the greatest blues and roots harmonica players around. His playing reaches deep into the well of tradition and at the same time takes the music to exciting new places with a very personal sound. Working with him in the studio and on the stage is always a pleasure.”

Dirk Powell said about him: “Grant Dermody plays the harmonica with power that is equally effective and evocative whether held in reserve or allowed to wail to its fullest and wildest degree. His musical voice, both through the instrument and singing itself, reunited forms and feels that are not-so-distant cousins into one wide and calmly flowing stream.”

Grant, like John, is a master teacher too and blues and roots musicians around the world have learned directly from them at workshops, including the popular Euroblues Promotions’ Blues Week event in the UK.

Tickets are available from Celtic Gold, Peel, Shakti Man, Ramsey, online at www.etickets.im/bjm or by ringing John Gregory on 204320 or email him at bluejohnmedia@hotmail.co.uk
