“Fairy Tales & Monsters” is Daylight Music’s signature event; a glorious dip into childhood dreams, fears and hopes. One of the highlights of last year’s concert was The Guildhall Saxophone Ensemble and they’re back again. This time, inspired by Duke Ellington’s classic take on it, they’re breathing new life into the beloved soundtrack to Mary Poppins.
We Are Muffy brings together Nick Duffy (The Lilac Time, Bait) and Angeline Morrison (The Mighty Sceptres, The Ambassadors of Sorrow, Emily & Angeline). With influencing including The Incredible String Band, Sam Cooke and Shirley and Dolly Collins, they’re listed as one of the top Cornish bands to watch.
The Guildhall Saxophone Ensemble exists to provide a collective environment in which all saxophone students can develop as players, composers, and arrangers.
“In the spirit of Duke Ellington’s classic “Mary Poppins” album, the Guildhall Saxophone Ensemble have developed their own settings of the Mary Poppins material through arrangements and improvisations. Directed by Mick Foster (Syd Lawrence Orchestra, Back To Basie Orchestra) this promises to breath new life and charm into this magical material.
We Are Muffy is Nick Duffy (The Lilac Time, Bait) and Angeline Morrison (The Mighty Sceptres, The Ambassadors of Sorrow, Emily & Angeline), who both live somewhere wild in Cornwall. With influences including The Incredible String Band, Sam Cooke and Shirley and Dolly Collins, their music has been described as, 'sultry, sophisticated, wry and witty' (CornwallLive.com). The discovery of their shared home town of Birmingham inspired the duo to begin writing about childhood memories and experiences... and then to compose love songs to the city of Birmingham itself, whilst exploring the cover version as a form of folk music defined by the era of sound recording. Their EP, 'Songs from The Charcoal Pool' has been played on BBC 6 Music, and their album 'The Charcoal Pool' will soon be released. They sing and play some quite strange instruments, such as home-made music boxes and a lyre. Listed as one of the top Cornish bands to watch, you can catch We Are Muffy at festivals this summer including Port Eliot and Folk on the Lawn.
