Simon Mayor and Hilary James – tour and workshop dates

Simon Mayor and Hilary James

Virtuoso mandolin, sensational songs, hot swing fiddle and huge lashings of fun from Britain’s leading ‘hot-fingered mandolin virtuoso’ Simon Mayor, and silver-voiced songstress Hilary James.

It’s probably the diversity of their repertoire that surprises people most: from folk songs to Berlioz, blues, classical mandolin show-stoppers, swing fiddle, and maybe a couple of their own infamous comic songs.

Oh, and Hilary might even manage a step dance if the wind is in the right direction!

Just recently their shows have enjoyed some added literary spice with a pre-concert film and poetic excursions from their new book Of Death And A Banana Skin.

Pepper it all with Simon’s unique brand of off-beat humour and Hilary’s honey-dripping voice for a massively entertaining evening not to be missed.
Serious stuff – but don’t take it too seriously!
