Retinal Circus Presents a Night of Film and Folk Music

RETINAL CIRCUS PRESENTS A NIGHT OF FILM AND FOLK!!
————————–————————–————————–——–
RETINAL CIRCUS : Lead by Brummy songwriter/composer Craigus Barry (currently in Mathew Edwards & The Unfortunates, formally 7Shades, Babal..) who deals with chamber pop,avant folk existential ditties & instrumentals with a keen ear for melody and attention to structure. Accompanied by David Headon on guitar,piano & harmonica, plus the scintilating strings of Maya Brown (Klezbians,Hoti Kippoti) & Jim Bertrand (BINGO HARRY, Yosarians!)
A rare opportunity to see two sides of this band in two cosy sittings!

THE FAUX PAS – Lead by Marcuszodiac69 on lead vocal and rhythm acoustic guitar,Marcus and his merry men~ (and woman!) bring you their unique take on American Folk and Old Time music. Finely honed but chilled music : Johnny Kowalski lead guitar,(HE OF SEXY WEIRDOS,) Katherine (SEXY WEIRDOS & QUILL,) on slick as (a greased up penguin on a peninsula) fiddle, and Brendan on blues harp! Always up for a jam,Johnny (along with many other fine people,) also runs the fabulous urban gorilla FOLK AROUND THE FIRE events in Bimringham! So we shall see what occurs on the night! Especially with the presence of…

MIKE BETHEL – Mike is an exceptionally skilled multiinstumentalist (guitar,ukulele,lute,Mandobanjolin(?)+ MORE,) turning his hand to everything from Brazilian classical, Nick Drake, Jazz, to Bert Janschh,and everything in between! Mike is enchanting and draws the listener into his seized space whenever he performs may induce pin prick silence & shivers! Mike is behind Secret Music Club and a partner n crime at the long running Sunday Express!
Other projects (too varied to list in full,) include a Parisienne Swing quartet – Bon Accord, and Anglo-Indian trio, Ministry For The Interior!

*+ A SCREENING OF TWO FOLK HORROR FILMS
INCLUDING FROM CARNIE FILM PRODUCTION, THE PREMIERE OF BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM (SILENT CUT)
Bella concerns the unsolved mystery of Hagley Woods.
Adapted by Carnie Features from the newspaper reports of W. Byford ”Quaestor” Jones; BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM is a phantasmagoria of ghosts, spies, skeletons and the dark heart of the rural Midlands countryside. A mood piece chronicling the fateful day of the discovery of an unidentified skeleton in Hagley Wood to the folkloric theories that followed and of the lasting legacy today. This film will awash you with a ghostly kaleidoscope encapsulating a most celebrated strain of spooky Midlands heritage.This score is both ecclectic & ethereal, it fits like a glove to all that occurs, ebbing with ectoplasmic beauty.
