Eclectic Cabaret #12: Friday 24th May, 2019 (Osprey & Co., George Chopping, Helen Ploix, Taiko Oxford

Gather ye rosebuds, it's another Eclectic Cabaret:

Osprey & Co.

Oxford legend Osprey will be headlining our evening. More details to follow.

 

George Chopping

We're delighted to once more have the wonderful George Chopping joining us.

George is a poet from Torquay. A few years ago he left a glittering career as a shelf filler for a major supermarket and began to perform his work around the country, which people seem to like - John Hegley has called him "the cream of Devon poets".

George has lots of swimming certificates but since he's been defecating into a bag he tends not to swim so much. He has a strong dislike for people sitting next to him on trains whilst he writes and will only attend weddings that have a spit-roasted suckling pig and an unlimited supply of fresh baps.

He has a full driving licence with lots of endorsements, a Welcome Host Certificate, seven GCSE’s at grade C, Crohn’s Disease and, at times, very low self esteem.

He is also one of our favourite acts at the Eclectic Cabaret and has published a wonderful, highly entertaining collection of poetry entitled Smoking with Crohnes.

Taiko Oxford

They hit big drums. It's loud and exciting. We love them. It's Taiko Oxford!

Helen Ploix

Helen usually sings with local band KIVA but tonight she is on a solo outing, supported by pianist husband Cedric.

Helen's voice has been compared to Nora Jones and Amy Winehouse and she'll be singing a range of smooth, jazzy-classics. Expect to be blown away.
