Simon Mayor & Hilary James

LIVE & LOCAL – Saturday 27th May 2023 – 7.30pm

‘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, all beautifully combined with 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!).

The performance is all wrapped up in an entertaining stage show with humour as dry as Somerset cider.

‘A whole stream of mirthful anecdotes, blurry-fingered precision and sweetly sung blues, standards and folk songs’.

The Glasgow Herald

‘A witty and captivating mix of folk, blues, swing and classical showstoppers, spiced with a unique brand of off-beat humour’.
