**** ‘touchingly perceptive... harrowing honesty...’  The Herald 

50-somethings Rob and Cathy are looking forward to reclaiming their own lives now that their daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled, but looming over them is a threat that could rip their future apart. DESCENT explores, with no holds barred, the supervening events that happen as they try to hold on to each other – and themselves – in the face of early onset dementia.  

Descent doesn’t flinch from the heartbreak they face, but it also celebrates the courage, the hope, the humanity - and even the humour - they bring to the fight.

HAT FITZ AND CARA, Hat Fitz, ‘veteran’ wild man of the Australian blues scene with a record eighteen straight appearances at the prestigious East Coast Blues and Roots Festival - a record that isn’t likely to ever be broken - and Irish songstress, Cara Robinson, a talented multi-instrumentalist – drums, washboard, flute and tin whistle, sometimes all at once – and blessed with a sensational voice who’s toured with singers such as Jamiroquai and the hugely popular Corinne Bailey-Rae, have built up a faithful global following with their gloriously rough ‘n’ tumble music - this barnstorming duo has circled the globe, blowing through communities and leaving everyone awestruck in their wake.

Nabucco: Verdi  Tayside Opera Friday 19th May 8pm £12/£10/£5 U16s  Opera at Birnam Arts

Verdi’s Nabucco, with its rousing, soaring score and raw energy - and perhaps best known for the epic ‘Va Pensiero’  (The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) - very nearly didn’t happen… Nabucco was born out of despair. Following the deaths of the young Verdi’s infant children and then his wife, his next opera, Un giorno di regno, failed to capture the public’s attention and he vowed to give up composing. At first, Verdi steadfastly refused to even read the Nabucco libretto, but eventually he gave in, and the rest is history – Nabucco succeeded as sensationally as Un giorno had abjectly failed, and at 28 years old, Verdi became the new darling of Italian opera. Reportedly, at the 1842 premiere, the audience applauded at the end of the first scene for 10 minutes.

Waves Written by and starring Alice Cooper Directed by Gill Robertson Wednesday 7th June 8pm Birnam Arts

 

Waves tells the story of Elizabeth Moncello and how, growing up on Gabo Island (Australia) in the 1930s, she employed sea creatures to teach her how to swim. With the help of fish, penguins and amphibian friends, Liz, the daughter of immigrants, developed The Dolphin, known to the world as the Butterfly stroke.

Elizabeth is a fictional character which pays homage to the lives of pioneering female Australian swimmers of the early 1900s, who, once they reached a ‘certain’ age, disappeared from the public’s gaze without a trace. Moncello’s story is about having an idea and the courage, drive and desire to follow it through – to swim against the tide of history and expectations, and to achieve something that is truly incredible....

Darren Woodhead is a pure field painter based in East Lothian, Scotland. A Graduate of the Royal College of Art, a passionate, purist Watercolourist, all of his work is produced outside on location and drawn directly in brush: there is no studio. Concentrating on the natural world, his paintings are atmospheres of his local Scottish wildlife and of his expeditions worldwide… his paintings are his diaries.

Birnam Arts and Scottish Wildlife Trust present Darren Woodhead:  Wildlife Artist – Paintings, Fieldworks and Travels Friday 9th June 8pm Birnam Arts, Dunkeld

Darren’s achievements and awards are many, but some of the highlights include a commission for The Duke of Edinburgh's 90th birthday, demonstrating his painting technique live on BBC2’s Springwatch, being the artist-in-residence for the subsequent Autumn and Winterwatch programmes, expeditions with The Artists for Nature Foundation and in 2016 he won the Undersea Art Award, awarded by The Wildlife Trusts, which has seen him beginning to pursue an ambition to work underwater with watercolour.

With teaching jobs and two published books, which, along with his prints, will be on sale and personally signed tonight, we’re delighted that Darren has found the time to bring his fascinating and informative talk to Birnam… he’ll also be demonstrating his painting technique live!

“…few artists alive today have such skills at their fingertips, and not many have had in the past…”

Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinettist David Horniblow, an established figure on the London jazz scene, and American pianist Andrew Oliver - a recent arrival to the UK - the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s finest rhythm guitarist Dave Kelbie.  The bass chair is occupied by native Londoner Tom Wheatley, in demand across many genre boundaries with his huge sound and stylistic versatility and Australian born, Paris-based bassist Sebastien Girardot, well known across the international scene for his swing and energetic vibe.

The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasizing the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.

“A voice to die for…it could be likened to Aretha Franklin. She is that good.” Maverick

A force of nature, an incredibly talented singer-songwriter and an amazing live performer, Bristol-born Yola Carter was raised on gospel and is greatly in-demand throughout the UK and abroad, with a jam-packed performance schedule.

Yola’s powerhouse voice, stage presence and superb soul-baring original songs, saw her chosen to represent the UK at the prestigious Americana Music Association showcase in Nashville, USA, in September 2016, in which she generated a huge music industry buzz. As a result, she ended the year with a string of accolades that more established artists would kill for. In February this year she won UK Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Association UK Awards.

My Darling Clementine Sunday 2nd July 8pm £12/£10/£5 U26s Country Nashville - Birnam Arts, Dunkeld

With a musical background that includes working with Bryan Ferry, The Brodsky Quartet, four albums of her own and even an appearance in an Indiana Jones film, Lou Dalgleish never envisaged herself singing in the ‘Nashville’ style, but she and her husband, Michael Weston King, former frontman of UK alternative country pioneers The Good Son have captured a winning formula that’s as authentic a sound as anything to come out of Nashville itself.

This is going to be a brilliant night’s entertainment… book early, don’t miss!

A Crawl down The Ogre: Doug Scott CBE Tuesday 11th July 8pm £13/£11/£5 U16s  Extreme Mountaineering Birnam Arts Dunkeld

In an epic tale of hard climbing and survival that has now become part of mountaineering folklore, ‘A Crawl down The Ogre’ celebrates the 40th anniversary of Doug Scott’s legendary crawl back down Pakistan’s infamous ‘Ogre’ after a disastrous abseil just below the summit left him dangling on the end of the rope with both legs broken just above the ankle.

Doug and Chris Bonnington had just successfully climbed the mountain recognised as one of the most difficult in the world to climb, and it would be another 24 years of yearly attempts before The Ogre was conquered again. Following a torturous descent in storm conditions endured over many days, Doug, and an also injured and sick Chris Bonnington, were finally rescued.

Their rescue was in large part achieved by the selfless help of two fellow climbers, Clive Rowland and Mo Anthoine, and selfless locals, which spurred Doug on to start up projects that help the indigenous people of the area live a better standard of life. With all proceeds going to Community Action Nepal, Doug will have  Nepalese goods, posters, signed framed prints and his award winning autobiography ‘Up And About’ for sale after the talk.

Stand-up Comedy

Shappi Khorsandi is celebrating the 40th anniversary of her arrival in Britain with her latest touring show ‘OH MY COUNTRY! FROM MORRIS DANCING TO MORRISSEY… she's reclaiming patriotism, sending a love letter to her adopted land, and, all in the best possible taste, politely asks “please don’t come if you’re a skinhead, though naturally bald folk are welcome”.

Shappi Khorsandi Monday 3rd April Birnam Arts

Star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and Q.I, Shappi’s the mistress of whip-crack jokes and is effortlessly funny as she handles every subject with a razor sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm.

 ‘She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency.’ The Guardian
