The two remaining events this year for Pies, Peas and Performances are:
Pete Riley and Shamona
Saturday 25th November
Pete Riley is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Liverpool. He has been playing music ever since he can remember, with careers both in the UK and USA. Pete’s most recent project has been a three-album collaboration with singer/songwriter Amy Wadge, resulting in a six-year touring stint promoting albums Rivers Apart, Afterglow and Bygones.
Shamona are a three-piece band from Liverpool. The band have been named in Fred Perry’s top 20 bands in Liverpool, while their track Game Is Yours was recently used in the Everton FC Season Ticket Campaign.
Shamona pride themselves on performing as many live shows as possible, and as a result have played many famous venues and festivals in and around the UK. Performing in such diverse venues as Liverpool’s Royal Philharmonic Hall, Goodison Park (home of Everton FC) and Liverpool International Music Festival, to name a few, has helped the Liverpool three-piece band build up a loyal fan base.
The concert starts at 7.00pm. Tickets cost £12.50.
Mince Pies, Peace and Performances
Saturday 2nd December
Christmas, opera, carols and more with Sean Ruane, Kate Bottley and guests. This is a free event with a Christmas feel. Sean Ruane is an international opera singer who will perform well known pieces, along with a selection of Christmas material. Sean is the man who sings Jerusalem before the England Cricket Team play and has performed at numerous sporting events.
Reverend Kate Bottley needs no introduction… Pause For Thought, Songs of Praise, The One Show, Masterchef. She’ll be at the event to lend her unique voice to the proceedings, although not necessarily in a singing way. This is a perfect way to begin the Christmas season.
As usual, the events take place at St Saviour’s Community Hall on Lidget Lane (by St Saviour’s Church). Tickets are available from Bookworm in Retford or www.wegottickets.com. For more information see the Pies, Peas and Performances Facebook page.
