ALAW @ CENTENARY CENTRE
Mar 3 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Oli Wilson-Dickson – fiddle
Dylan Fowler – guitar
Jamie Smith – accordion

ALAW combines the craftsmanship of three leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion – the traditional music of Wales. Whether unearthing rare gems or reimagining a well loved melody they treat their music with a deftness and sensitivity that is thoroughly absorbing. Combined with powerful song writing and original tunes, this makes for a musical experience that will stay with the listener long after the concert has ended.
Oli and Jamie will be well known to Manx audiences through their performances with Jamie Smith’s Mabon. Between the three of them they have performed with Richard Thompson, Barrule, The Devil’s Violin, Ian McMillan and more. From stirring songs to driving jigs – they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.

A stunning Japanese Animation in English. A teenage boy and girl embark on a quest to meet each other for the first time after they magically swap bodies years apart. Their lives being entwined with the fate of a terrible natural disaster.

Quite possibly one of the most creative films of the past few years. Your Name is beautifully animated, wonderfully acted, stunning sound design and a brilliant, complex and truly emotionally engaging story. #79 on the IMDB Top Rated Movies list at the time of writing.

“It’s both gorgeous enough and emotionally engaging enough to be worth seeking out.” – NPR

“Stunningly animated and well acted, this extraordinary Japanese coming-of-age tale is equal parts body-swap comedy, time-travel romance, and adventure film.” – Common Sense Media

“The hand-painted animation is stunning, from comets streaking across the night sky to an afternoon walk through fall foliage that is breathtaking.” – Capital Times

“Part body-swap comedy, part long-distance romance, part… something else. If you only see one Japanese animated feature this year, see this one, and see it more than once.” – Empire

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.

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

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
