8:00pm, £8, 63-65 Broadway Market, Dear Friends, I am delighted to invite you to the launch of my new single ‘Lydia’ at Kansas Smitty’s on Broadway Market. ‘Lydia’ is the second single taken from my upcoming third album ‘To The Islands’ and is the most intimate song on the record and one I wrote at a real liminal point in my life. Keen to focus on the intensity that comes with stripping everything away, when it came to recording it I did it on my own, late at night. To honour that spirit, I have decided to launch the single with a solo concert in the beautiful Kansas Smitty’s bar off Broadway Market in Hackney. It is a wonderfully atmospheric, tiny basement jazz club, and it promises to be a very special night (with some very special guests). Tickets are very limited so please get yours fast from: https://billetto.co.uk/e/the-shed-with-magic-lantern-and-special-guests-tickets-256973 All love and see you there Jamie x More information

Every fire will be a unique event with a magic concoction of spontaneity, rare talents and the unknown, all drenched in the sepia tones of firelight and tinged with wooded aromas. Gwyneth Herbert ‘A remarkably gifted talent’ The Guardian | ‘Classic Bowie-like pop, belting blues and gorgeous jazz’ BBC Gwyneth Herbert is an award-winning composer and lyricist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and strikingly original performer. She has released 6 critically-acclaimed albums (including the first Blue Note UK release in 30 years), toured across the world and shared stages with Amy Winehouse, John Cooper Clarke and the London Sinfonietta. Following a summer of touring in North America and working on composition projects, Gwyneth brings her unique multi-instrumental duo show to the Campfire Club in a special acoustic performance. Drawing on influences from the worlds of folk, art pop, contemporary classical, sea shanties, jazz, avant-garde music and storytelling, she performs with a variety of instruments and a “casually commanding voice – whether softly nuanced as confiding speech or at full soaring-contralto stretch” (The Guardian). “Brilliantly original” – MOJO “A remarkably gifted talent” – The Guardian “Super-talented” – The Telegraph “Classic Bowie-like pop, belting blues and gorgeous jazz” – BBC THE MAGIC LANTERN An artist dedicated to remedying the anxiety and fear present in everyone, his voice both lifts and calms the senses equally, as he applies jazz technique to a direct and open presentation of original songs. Most recently joining Jamie Cullum at the BBC Proms, the singer and composer Jamie Doe is a rising star of London’s diverse music scene, who never settles without a challenge, and lives to spread love, calm and sincerity. Jamie has “an immediately arresting voice that has been compared to Chet Baker and Jeff Buckley and a unique guitar style that takes elements of folk fingerpicking, Flamenco and West African music” “Very, very special” – Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music “Intriguing, compelling and exceptional. A man to watch” – The Guardian www.the-magic-lantern.co.uk

20/03 ‘Rhythms of The Heart’ at the Proud Archivist, London
7:30pm, £10, 2-10 Hertford Road,, “SCIENCE” “ART” “PERFORMANCE” “PHILOSOPHY” Presented by ‘Jugular:Joining The Head and The Heart’ Performing artists, scientists and philosophers take inspiration from each other and offer different insights into ‘Heart, Emotions and Rhythms’: Inspired by everyday life and informed by specialist research, we invite you to celebrate both your emotions and intellect through performance spanning theatre, music, dance, spoken word and circus, all navigated by multi-media interactive talks from experts. From time immemorial, we have questioned our conscious experience of ourselves and the world around us, what our instinctual being knows and our rational minds think…and what exactly is the connection? Consider the thought experiment ‘Floating Man’, by 11th Century Persian philosopher polymath Avicenna who asked if someone suspended in air, cut off from all external sensory experience, could possibly be aware of his own existence. An insolvable metaphysical conundrum, except children often insist they KNOW their internal heartbeat… Explore with scientists as they delve into ‘Interoception’, the physiological detection of one’s internal bodily processes – the ‘sixth sense’ through which we feel our heartbeat without taking a pulse and… Share in an experience of collective empathy, as a choir synchronises their heartbeats and connects us all. Other artists’ responses include devised multi-sensory performances, playwrights’ scripted musings, poets’ spoken word, contortionist and dancers’ rhythms and songwriters’ laments.
