Tango Night

** Correction to event time which will now run from 7-11pm**

Bold vision will be running an Argentinian themed fundraiser on the 16th of February. The fundraiser is to cover repair costs to the community space and the installation of disabled access, enable us to keep the Hill Station maintained and support our other activities.

Live performance from highly acclaimed Uruguayan Ana Karina Rossi (see http://www.anakarinarossi.com.uy/) just finished a series of performances in the Uruguayan National Theatre, the wonderful Ricardo Cinalli’s, more known for his paintings than his incredibly intuitive approach to playing tangos on piano. And to complete the trio, newly arrived from Sardinia, maestro Mauro Uselli, on flute, who has found in The Hill Station, a place to begin his way into the musical scene in London.

Anna: “I was born in Montevideo. Since very young I breathed tango in the streets of my city, during family gatherings, on the radio, and when listening to my father hum Discepolo and Gardel. Thanks to my father, I studied piano and received my first Steinway. My mother went along with me to take the admission exam at the Conservatory of Music. Mother waited even more impatiently than I for the jury’s decision. And it was then, at 14 years of age, that passing the exam allowed me to study music on an academic level. Singing has always been present in my life, but by the end of my teenage years, singing particularly meant tango; it soon grew wings and took me to discover the world. I realized then that tango had no frontiers, and through it, I can sing from the vast textures of life, with humour, with nostalgia, allowing dreams to walk their own paths, singing a tango to love, to pain, to hope, to friendship or solitude, to make memories live, and to inspire a longing for the future. Feeling tango in my soul and expressing it with my voice is today the best passport with which I travel, and like a bird, I take music here and there- the music of my motherland.

Open Mic Nov 27

Hello lovely Open-Mic Participants and Watchers

Once again we, Alex and Phil, are getting our creaky old bones prepared for some kind of middle-aged action at this week’s Open Mic Night, while our Kev is still bringing his youthful infectious enthusiasm for life to the other side of the world.

So why not come down to the old Telegraph at the Earl of Derby in Dennetts Road SE14 on Weds Nov 27 for an evening of music, spoken word, fun, frolics and the rest.

And please do consider the non-music option – like poetry, sketches, mime, magic, monologue – we’ll give most (legal) things a go.

Get there early to get on the list or to grab a prime seat… Starting at about 8.30pm-ish

Hope to see you there. Oh yes we do!

Phil xx 07973 540839

Wanted 2 Fundraiser Jun 21

 

Last year saw the first ‘Wanted’ a night of music to raise funds for a PA for Hill Station – around £400 was raised.   This year sees another push following the Solstice parade.

Wanted 2 starts at 7.30pm on Friday 21st June at Hill Station, there will be music, comedy, food (a BBQ), a raffle (with amazing prizes!) and a licensed bar.

Acts include:

  • Eliza & Pearl (Folk harmonies)
  • Open Road (Bluegrass and Country)
  • Dino (Singer/Songwriter)
  • Phil & Martin (Comedy/Sketches)
  • Paul & Maggie (Jazz)
  • Jon & Anna (Acoustic Pop)
  • Pagoda Sun (Acoustic Folk Pop)
  • The Pretty Boys (Winston, Lex and Ben – Eclectic and Surpising)

Tickets are £5 / £3 (concessions) – BOOK NOW!

Some asked – Why a PA?   The Festival PA is huge and heavy, is stored away at the furthest end of Telegraph Hill Centre and often in use (esp. during the Festival).   Having a Hill Station PA will ensure a simple ‘plug and play’ option throughout the year, but especially at Festival time.
