- From The Style Council
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Anthony Harty is the original bass player and the only other person to have played guitar in The Style Council. With a career spanning 35 years, Grammy award winner Anthony has played with over a hundred bands and artistes, including The Truth, The Specials, The Beat, The Selecter, Badfinger, The Primitives, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Hazel O’Connor, Lee Scratch Perry, Steve Ellis (Love Affair), but it’s The Style Council that remains a firm favourite.
Jaye Ella-Ruth (formerly Jaye Williamson) is the female vocalist who toured with The Style Council in 1984. She was on BBC Sight and Sound In Concert, and the Far East And Far Out Live video. She also featured on the Groovin’ EP and loved touring with the band.
She was a member of The Brand New Heavies, recording their first album and single, and original member of Yes No People (who later became Stomp). Jaye toured/recorded with many artists, such as Imagination, Curiosity Killed The Cat, Michael McDonald, Jermaine Stuart, Whitney Houston, Donny Osmond, Ce-Ce Penniston, Talk Talk & Errol Brown.
Delivering a set of well-loved songs from the band’s most successful period, Anthony, Jaye and their band of superb musicians keep the torch burning by delivering a show to remember, with that rare stamp of authenticity that sets them apart from the pretenders, mimics, wannabes, and tributes…
Tickets for this concert are £19.50 in advance/£23 on the door.
This Grade I listed church, which dates from the mid 13th Century, overlooks the street in the centre of our village. The medieval architecture provides a spectacular backdrop to our musical events. The chancel contains an internationally famous collection of medieval brasses commemorating the de Cobham family.
The church is open daily during daylight hours and is well worth a visit in its own right together with the adjacent medieval College which was built by the de Cobham for the priests, who were appointed to say masses for the family members buried in the church.
