Tears of Laughter

Show Details

Presented by Hilary James & Simon Mayor

Performance date and time
Sunday, 17th November 2019
7:30 PM

'Tears of Laughter' is a show full of Simon’s inimitable brand of off-the-wall humour as well as mandolin, guitar and fiddling wizardry meets Hilary's 'honey-dripping' vocals. Everything from beautiful folk ballads such as the lovely 'When Summer Comes Again' to lively mandolin tunes, and some of their hilarious children's songs, reminiscent of Belloc's 'Cautionary Tales'. Oh! And a step dance (if Hilary has any breath left!). With a repertoire crossing from traditional ballads to blues, Berlioz, classical mandolin showstoppers and some of their own notorious comic songs, it's all wrapped up in an entertaining stage show and humour as dry as Somerset cider.

'Evocative virtuosity… uplifting and a joy.' Daily Telegraph 'Sheer musical brilliance.' BBC World Service
