Fleetingwood Mac At The Fleece, Bristol

Sat 23rd Jun | 7pm | 13 adv | All Ages* Fleetingwood Mac fleetingwoodmac.com We didnt just want to be another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead, we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals! As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we cant help but give it a modern edge, its just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to pay tribute to a band that has lasted nearly 50 years? A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties.

Teaching Vinyasa Yoga: Weekend Intensive

STEPPING OUT OF THE FLOW Teaching Vinyasa Yoga - A Weekend Intensive Seeing as Glastonbury isn\'t happening this year... let\'s get geeky with our Vinyasa teaching. Dates: 23rd - 24th June 2018 Location: The Forge, Colston Yard. BS1 5BD Price: 220 Subjects that will be covered during this weekend: Safe & Creative Sequencing Connective assists Yoga anatomy Finding Our Voice Intention Setting & Class Themes Choosing Music Creating an atmosphere of enquiry What you will receive: - A collaborative & innovative workshop designed to tune up your teaching - A concise manual of the weekend\'s material - Individual written feedback - One follow up Skype call per student to discuss their teaching / the workshop - tea, coffee & snacks available throughout the weekend Vinyasa Yoga is an exciting, creative practice. It aligns itself with no yoga school or dogma. It is the \'rebel\' practice. Each vinyasa teacher brings something of themselves to their class: their own spiritual, sporting and academic backgrounds are thrown into a creative cauldron along with a few millennia of yoga history, philosophy and tradition. What emerges can be an artful fusion of functional movement or it honestly can be a bit of a cluster f*ck. This intensive weekend is intended to help you unpick what you want your classes to be, how to best serve your students and how to remain inspired whilst teaching sometimes (too) many classes a week. Vinyasa yoga is perhaps best known for the shapes that we asana instructors tend to throw, snap and slap on Instagram but we all know that these shapes are just a tool (right?), a means to get to the juicy stuff. As asana instructors it is our job to create safe sequences for our students to move through without damaging their bodies (or exacerbating that dodgy rotator cuff they got from doing chaturanga wrong for 5 years) while allowing enough freedom for them to key into their own intuition, their own incredible spirit. Not an easy task, and one that I don\'t pretend to be able to do on my own. As such I have enlisted the help of a world-class anatomist (who is my first call when I think \'is this pose actually hurting more than helping?\') to assist us in our assisting and sequencing discussions. This Intensive will revolve around the key idea that we as vinyasa teachers offer an opportunity for creative transformation, but also enquiry - creating a space for critical thinking, allowing the student space to question; is this appropriate for me and my body? There will be some asana this weekend, but it will very much serve a supporting role. Get your notebooks out yogis, because this is going to get full on yoga-geek. My intention is to throw as much \'wise\' at you as possible. Being as transparent as I can about my own sequencing process while creating an environment for you to develop your own and a safe, (mainly) judgement free zone to try out ideas. And my favourite tool; we will discuss the art of storytelling - the ability to skilfully weave themes into our teaching and setting a strong, relevant intention for our students. Also, whether you should swear in class. The Programme So what are we going to talk about? The workshop schedule is outlined below however, like any yoga class, we will work with who we have in the room and as such this weekend will very much be dictated by what you folks would like to work on. There is of course a structure but if you have any particular requests or expectations please let them be known and I will try my best to include them. For example, I have already had an email asking to include a section on how to write a workshop description. Saturday: 10am-1pm The Beatles, The Bhagavad Gita & The Vinyasa Yoga Tradition - Carving our own path through the yoga maze Saturday: 2-5pm Once Upon A 90 Minute Yoga Class: Setting Intentions, Crafting Themes & Telling A Yoga Story Sunday 10-11.30am - Option to attend Ash\'s yoga class at Hamilton House 1-3.30pm: The Overview Effect - Seeing our students individually and our class as a whole; layering up The Practice; Sequencing, Anatomy & Assists 4-6.30pm: Finding Our Voice - communication & connection; (optional) teaching practice. The weekend will end on a candlelit meditation to inspire and move us forward with our teaching. The Cost If the cost is a hindrance to you taking part, please of course email me and we will see what we can do. How Do I Book? There will of course be limited spaces for this workshop. I have emailed those who have expressed an interest, if you would like to book please email me at [email protected] and I will send you an invoice. Please also email me with any questions! In gratitude as ever, Ash x

Richie Kotzen At Thekla, Bristol

Tidal Concerts proudly presents: Richie Kotzen plus support. Doors - 19:00 // Price - 20.00 Adv. Tickets - bit.ly/2p38aKL About: Richie Kotzen - www.facebook.com/richiekotzenmusic Richie Kotzen has never been an artist known for playing by the rules. And for this ever- adventurous triple-threat songwriter/guitarist/vocalist, that meant putting on the brakes after a nonstop flurry of band-related activity in order to refuel the creative process for the ten heartfelt and hard-hitting songs that comprise his vibrant new solo album, Salting Earth, out April 14 via his own custom label, Headroom-Inc. In other words, Kotzen tossed convention on its ear by actually taking one step back in order to move two steps forward. Its something I really needed to do in order to reset myself, Kotzen explains. Kotzens charge to recharge was officially put into play following the mega-success of the 201516 tour behind his band The Winery Dogs sophomore effort, the oh-so- appropriately named Hot Streak. And the mans reset manifesto wound up hitting all the right buttons too. The proof is on display deep within the grooves of Salting Earth, which veers from the balls-out, heads-up declaration of the opening track End of Earth to the burning-sky harmonic thrust of Thunder to the Prince-like funk-jazz swing of This Is Life to the acoustified take-me-as-I-am self-reflection of the albums final song, Grammy. Once Kotzen caught his creative breath, the ideas for Salting Earth just kept on a- coming. I have a theory about writers block, he offers. Basically, I dont believe in it. In my experience, when I dont feel inspired or I dont have any ideas, it equates to not having any output. In order to have output, you need input. So it really comes down to the balance between your artistic side and your life side. You need balance between the two, and thats why its so important for me to take long breaks from music. Kotzens reaffirming commitment to that life/work balance soon begat vibrant, new music. Its in that time when Im away from it where ideas begin to take shape, he continues. Then, when I find myself coming back to music, I end up in a situation with a wealth of ideas and creative energy. When Im in that zone, the music literally writes itself. Lyrics, music, production, performance it all happens simultaneously on its own. The majority of Salting Earth is the result of Kotzens one-man production machine, with the exception of Julia Lage adding background vocals to Make It Easy, a tasty, sing- along groove stew. Its really not deliberate when the record is finished and suddenly Im the only performer on it, Kotzen admits. It actually comes out of my process of writing and documenting my ideas. It started back in the late-80s when I had a makeshift studio in my parents barn. I grew up fairly isolated, and I soon realized in order to get this music out of my head and onto a format where I could listen to it, Id have to figure out how to do it alone. Part of Kotzens Salting Earth reset process also meant having a commitment to challenge himself. Im not sure I can totally define how or why my creative process works the way it does, but I will say once again that I believe long breaks help me stay inspired musically, he reiterates. I do know that on this record, I wrote a lot more on the piano. The song My Rock, for example, has absolutely no guitar in the recording its just piano, bass, drums, and vocals. Not that that is an odd choice, but being that for most of my career Ive been highlighted as a guitarist, I suppose for people who never bought one of my CDs in the past, this would be surprising. But its not so surprising to me. For the artist within, the music mined for Salting Earth ultimately came down to being about the relationship between song and vocal. Thats really it, Kotzen agrees. Every other choice is made based on what I feel suits the composition and what will support the lead vocal. That is the foundation on how my music is built. I suppose its just how I hear things. If you think about it, when your mind hums a tune, you are humming the melody. When you sing Happy Birthday, you dont sing the drumbeat, do you? Kotzens previous solo release, 2015s diverse, far-reaching Cannibals, was a well- received hit among his core fan base, and Salting Earth cuts like the aforementioned End of Earth, Thunder, and Divine Power all showcase the scorching guitar solos and soaring vocals that one would expect from a Kotzen solo album. That said, theres also quite a vulnerable side on display here thats perhaps best demonstrated in the stripped-down approach to the albums closing salvo, Grammy. That song came to me in the oddest way at the most inconvenient time, Kotzen reveals of the track that can be filed in the first thought, best thought category. One night when he was home alone, I basically woke myself up with the chorus melody in my head, and in my haze, I knew that if I didnt at least record the idea, it would be forever lost, Kotzen explains. I ended up programming a simple drum beat, and then recorded the acoustic guitar. The lyrics pretty much wrote themselves. By 6 in the morning, the song was finished. I was going to do more overdubs, but I kept playing it over and over, and I just felt like there was something so personal coming out of the speakers. By messing with it, Id likely destroy the magic so I left it as it is. (Good call on that one, Richie!) Bringing Salting Earth live to the people is Kotzens next holy mission. My real outlet is touring playing live as much as I can, wherever I can, whenever I can, he says enthusiastically. Its one of the few things you cant copy, steal, or download. Its an engaging human experience thats a give-and-take between both the performer and the audience, and there is nothing else like it on this earth. To that end, Kotzen will launch his Salting Earth Tour on April 21 at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California, and then the man and his band will tour extensively throughout the United States and continue their journey into Mexico, South America, and Europe. Further tour details will be posted on Kotzens official website, www.richiekotzen.com, and additional information regarding upcoming shows and releases can be followed on Twitter (@Richie_Kotzen) and Instagram (@richie_kotzen). Kotzen is clearly eager to hit the road. I know this is going to be a long album cycle of touring, and already we are talking about going to places Ive never been before like Australia, for example, Kotzen notes. With the new record being done and knowing dates are being booked around the world, I can feel my creative energy surging once again. Said energy surge has been seeded quite liberally all throughout Salting Earth, an album that shows Kotzen as the pillar for how to harness newfound creativity in the best light imaginable. Come and dig his Earth.

The Elephant Man

PRIORITY BOOKING OPEN TO FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS FROM 10AM, WED 29 NOV General Booking opens 10am, Wed 6 Dec "Sometimes I think my head is so big because it is so full of dreams." Joseph Merrick is The Elephant Man\'. The sordid spectacle of a travelling freak show, he moves from city to city, mercilessly put on display to the horrified delight of Victorian audiences. A London surgeon also takes a keen interest, but is soon faced with a moral dilemma - to help Merrick or to use him to advance his scientific career? Inspired by the extraordinary life of a man with a facial disfigurement, Bernard Pomerance\'s multi-award-winning play explores changes in perception. Merrick\'s story was also recognised in David Lynch\'s film starring John Hurt. Our ongoing partnership with Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is further developed into a three-way collaboration with our new Associate Company, Diverse City, which is committed to diversity and equality in the arts. Its Co-Artistic Director Jamie Beddard (Messiah) will star in this ambitious new production, directed by Lee Lyford (The Snow Queen).
