Evenlode & Pop up Folk present Nick Hooper & Gordon Giltrap

"TWO FRIENDS SHARING MUSIC"

 

Don't miss this extraordinary evening of solos and duos from guitar legends near and far

As one of the UK's most respected guitarists, the legendary Gordon Giltrap has graced the music business with his dedication to his craft and affection for his audience for over 40 years. Playing the guitar from the age of 12, he never received formal tuition, gradually developing his own style and technique. His musical styles cross several genres, including folk, blues, folk-rock, pop, classical and rock. He was signed to Transatlantic Records at the age of 18 and has released numerous acclaimed albums, including the 1976 album Visionary, based on the art and poetry of William Blake. His follow-up album Perilous Journey was named by the Sunday Times as one of the best albums of 1977.  Gordon enjoyed a brief spell in the 70s as a pop star, with a trio of now classic albums and hit singles: 'Heartsong' (nominated for an Ivor Novello award and fondly remembered as the theme tune to the BBC's Holiday programme) and 'Fear of the Dark', while Gordon himself rates the bestselling 2007 album Troubadour as his finest work.

Gordon has performed alongside Bert Jansch (one of his major influences), John Renbourn, Brian May, Rick Wakeman and Mike Oldfield, amongst many others.

‘Gordon Giltrap is one of the best acoustic guitar players in the world. His concerts and playing are breathtaking. He’s also very witty, and I love the fact that he has not cut his hair!’ - Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple and Blackmore's Night)

'Gordon Giltrap is one of an elite few who truly have become legendary in their field in their own lifetime' - Brian May

Although Nick Hooper is better known as a film-music composer, he started his musical career as a guitarist, studying at The Royal College of Music and receiving tuition from John Williams and others. In the late 70s he toured widely under the auspices of Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now and also The British Council. In the 1980s Nick released folk album Turning Tables with Chris Leslie and a solo album of music by J S Bach which was critically acclaimed, comparing his playing to that of John Williams and Andres Segovia.

Decades later, after a successful film music career, scoring two Harry potter films and winning many awards, Nick has returned to his first love – the guitar. He joined forces with his wife Judith to form the duo Henderson:Hooper, started a folk series which has now become ‘Pop-up Folk’ and helped form The DellyWellyBoot Band. A couple of years ago Nick recorded an album of mainly Irish music entitled Six Strings - and it was this that caused him to meet Gordon Giltrap, who generously helped him to get his new Fylde guitar – a copy of Gordon’s.

Of Six Strings: ‘It’s a complete joy. It’s going to be one of those albums that I play a lot, because it’s got that kind of calm spaciousness about it too, which is absolutely brilliant. Love it!’ - Chris Leslie

Ramsden's Famous Christmas Market

Ramsden's Famous Christmas Market

Ram Christmas  17.jpg

West Oxfordshire’s largest covered Christmas Market!

The tiny village of Ramsden is the surprising venue for what must now be the biggest covered Christmas Market in West Oxfordshire. No need to shiver in the wind and rain, as the entire Market is held under cover in the beautifully decorated big barn at Lower Farm.

Since the Market moved to Lower Farm, it has grown beyond all expectations. Seven years ago there were 12 stalls. This year, with the addition of extra space, the organisers plan to have at least 50 selling crafts, artisan food, hand-made clothing and gifts, books, wreaths, Christmas decorations and a host of other goodies. 

Xmas market 16.jpg

One of the organisers, Jude Douglass, said: “we have always had a policy of seeking out stallholders who sell unusual, unique, hand-made or Fair Trade goods. Shoppers always know they will find something different at Ramsden.”

Shoppers also love the atmosphere at Ramsden. After buying their gifts, they can enjoy lunch or afternoon tea right in the middle of the Market to the accompaniment of handbell-ringing, carol-singing or a jazz band. This year there will be more food than ever and parents can grab a glass of mulled wine to sustain them in the queue for Father Christmas.

Stallholders say (and they should know!) that it is the friendliest Market around and that there is always a great buzz of chatter and laughter. Bill Miller, who masterminds the set-up of the Market said: “the social aspect is very important. The Market is a vital fund-raiser for the village but it has also got to be fun – for us as well as the shoppers”.

The 2017 Market is on Saturday, 2nd December, from 1pm to 4pm at Lower Farm, Ramsden, OX7 3AZ. Ramsden is 4 miles north of Witney just off the B4022 road to Charlbury and Chipping Norton .

Charlbury Farmers Market

Charlbury Farmers Market

Charlbury is a Cotswold Market Town with a Charter granted by King Henry III in 1256. The original market place was in Church Street but nowadays there is too much traffic and street closure is not an option. The Playing Close is a superb location and the Trustees of Thomas Gifford's Charity (the landowner) has agreed that Charlbury farmers' markets can take place there. Charlbury has a long history, which can be viewed in the Museum and its five Churches, it also has a hotel, a variety of pubs, delicatessen, book shop, newsagents, chemists, estate agents, general stores and a library. 

To this was added our first Farmers' Market in July 2001 of 8 stalls. We now attract about 30 stalls quarterly with a range of products from plants to willow baskets, chillies to sheepskins. All the produce comes from within a 50 mile radius of Charlbury and complies with TVFMC rules. 

We also allow stalls that promote Charlbury's many activities such as the annual Street Fair, Beer Festival and Children's Playgroup.
