Two Man Ting (Sunshine Afro Roots)

"Full of such bright, tuneful moments, this will really take-off in an intimate live setting" fRoots Magazine

TWO MAN TING ARE BACK!!

These guys were incredible in the summer and even said that their Whiskers' gig was their fave of the year!

Now they are back, so don't miss this chance to enjoy their incredible sound and vibe.

TwoManTing was formed in 2004, when Jon Lewis and Jah-man Aggrey were working together in world/dance band Le Cod Afrique, performing at the likes of WOMAD, Montreux Jazz Festival and Glastonbury.

Since then, the duo has been performing regularly throughout the UK, and particularly on the Festival circuit. Festie shows have included Glastonbury, the Secret Garden Party, Musicport, Green Man, Whychwood, Ely Folk Festival, Big Green Gathering, Off the Tracks, Sunrise Celebration, Broadstairs Folk Week, Small World, Waveform, Nozstock, Bearded Theory....to name but a few.

2011 saw the release of the duo's acclaimed album "Legacy", much featured on BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music, and in 2012, Jon and Jah played at over 30 UK festivals, and 100 gigs up and down the country. 

2013 - The new EP "Ar Lek U" features 3 brand new tracks, and a re-working of an old favourite, inpired by the beaches of Freetown and honed in the muddy, sunny fields of England.

Ferris & Sylvester plus support (BBC Inroducing/ Folk/ Blues)


Whiskers, Newquay

FREE ENTRY 

Ferris & Sylvester are songwriters - With clear references in their catchy setup to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village combined with their meatier blues tones, Ferris & Sylvester sit somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit. Their clever combination of blues, folk and rock n roll has created a distinctive genre of their own.

The London-based pair met two and a half years ago and have since won over the capital with their ever-growing live presence and songwriting. This year, the duo released their highly anticipated EP 'Made In Streatham' which they self-produced in their South London flat. Released through their own label 'Archtop Records', the EP has clocked up millions of Spotify streams, rose to No.1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart and received widespread praise across the board. 

After a packed summer of Festivals including appearances at BST with Eric Clapton, Bath Fest with Robert Plant and main stage at Wilderness with BBC Introducing, the pair are moving into the next phase of their exciting career with new music planned for early 2019. 

'A masterpiece of Brit Folk that should already have made them household names.' - Mojo Magazine

‘A rich and fully realised sound that leaves one pining for a full-length.’ – Rolling Stone Magazine

‘Alt Simon & Garfunkel: dreamy pop with spiky sentiments.’ - The Guardian

‘Harmonies & grounded tones that seem like they were born together.’ - BBC Introducing

‘Here’s the thing: They played to nine people and a dog with charm and gusto, as if they were playing to thousands, like it was the most important gig they had done. That’s how you know they're in it for the right reasons - they love making music, they have something to say, and they want you to hear it.’ - Baylen Leonard

Hyde & Seek - Flat Packed Theatre

Hyde & Seek - Flat Packed Theatre

Hot on the heels of Halloween, what more could be better...

As part of Whiskers feast of Autumn events, SuperSonic presents 'Hyde & Seek' - with Flat Packed Theatre.

Using specially designed self contained lighting effects, Hyde and Seek is a chilling and intimate story-telling experience: ghostly figures are glimpsed briefly before vanishing, characters appear out of nowhere, and what you can’t quite see becomes a lot more disconcerting than what you can.

Based on the tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, 'Hyde & Seek' is a macabre ghost story with occasional spatterings of vaudevillian humour. The story expands on the world of the original narrative; and the friendly, yet haunted former stage-door man, Albert, tells a grisly tale of the further misdeeds of Mr Hyde and his ‘acquaintance’ - the tormented genius, Dr Jekyll.

Set in a long-abandoned theatre in Victorian London, the show has a theme of vaudeville running through it resulting in darkly comic song, dance, puppetry and even ventriloquism, which interweave with the story.

Written by Ben Oldfield (CUBE - essential theatre ). Created by Michael Tonkin-Jones (Spillikin) and Ciaran Clarke (Near-ta Theatre). Performed by Michael Tonkin-Jones (Spillikin). Produced by Jasmine Cole Productions Ltd.

Sarajevo Big Bang (Performance)

Sarajevo Big Bang 
featuring The Big Bang Gang
presented by Carn to Cove and Whiskers

One fatal gunshot. Sarajevo. The Great War begins. 
Swedish performance artists, The Big Bang Gang, bring their unique blend of stories, songs and crazy cabaret, taking you on a surprising journey through power struggles and secret machinations. 

How could that fatal gunshot in Sarajevo change everybody’s life – even yours, even today?

Through stories, songs and cabaret, meet characters who really only want to live, laugh and love, following them on a journey showing just how you in the audience are connected to the gunshot that started ‘The Great War’. Maria is a professional storyteller and artist. She follows the nervous young men of the action group, their pockets loaded with guns, bullets and poison. Staffan is a writer of books and plays – who brings to life the tensions and the historical background of the shot and its Big Bang aftermath. Eva is a singer, actress and dramatist. In stories and typical songs of the time she builds an atmosphere that brings you near to people and their fate.
All three are storytellers, together taking turns in pushing the story forwards, while tension mounts. A theatrical experience to leave you enriched and entertained.
