Both Karen Tweed and Timo Alakotila are supreme lyrical performers who have a true gift for uncovering the spirit and text of the tunes they play.

It’s been 16 years since the first May Monday album. Six years later came Midnight May Monday, followed by Midsummer May Monday. These recordings are a testament to the enduring and magical partnership of the vivacious and elegant accordionist Karen Tweed and the quiet genius of pianist, composer and arranger Timo Alakotila.

Postcards & Pocketbooks: The Best of Bella Hardy

Saturday 9 November, 8pm

Bella Hardy has sung unaccompanied ballads at a sold-out Royal Albert Hall. She’s taken a band of drums, brass and electronics to the National Concert Hall of Budapest. She’s learnt the songs of Chinese farmers as she helped gather ginger in Yunnan Province. She’s sat on the moors of her beloved Peak District with only her fiddle for company. She’s worked as a ranch hand, looking after horses and fiddle-singing in the diners of Tennessee.

With her mesmerising voice and ability to conjure and twist stories that call straight to the heart, Bella has beguiled audiences from Canada to Japan, from Spanish bars to castles, from the moors to the Royal Albert Hall.
