ENTERTAINMENT SO FAR…
DANE SOUND RADIO
An online community radio station broadcasting music, special interest programmes and entertainment throughout Cheshire.
Dane Sound will be acting as compere extraordinaire on the day, introducing the live acts on the entertainment stage, as well as keeping everyone informed as to what is going on where, and most memorably, from last year, helping to assist with the dog show. All very Wimbledon/Olympics-esque now at Clonter, with winners’ owners being interviewed. And in between they will be treating you to some of their own kind of music.
Eric Newton is a well-known busker and plays happy foot-tapping New Orleans jazz on the clarinet.
SANDBACH UKULELE GROUP
The Sandbach Ukulele band is a spin-off from the Sandbach u3A uke group. We’re much under-rehearsed due to lockdown but looking forward to playing in each other’s vicinity again (!)
Jordan is a versatile baritone whose repertoire spans the opera and concert stages, lieder, English song and the Great American Songbook. He is an MMus graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, where he studied under Matthew Best, and a BMus graduate in Music from the University of Manchester.
Jordan’s stage roles include Townsperson in The Orphans of Koombu (Buxton Festival Opera) Herald in Vaughan Williams’ The Pilgrim’s Progress, (Royal Northern College of Music), Silvio in Pagliacci (City of Manchester Opera) and The Prisoner in Louis Ashton Buttler’s The Ephemeral Legend, a role he created for Manchester Contemporary Youth Opera. In concert, highlights include Vaughan Williams’ Dona nobis pacem, Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle, and Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis and Missa in tempore belli.
Jordan has an affinity for poetry which is reflected in his love of song. In his first post-pandemic recital, he performed Mahler’s Ruckert Lieder Ireland’s Five Songs on Poems by Thomas Hardy and Ravel’s Don Quichotte à Dulcinée, alongside related songs by Clara Schumann and Rebecca. He is looking forward to returning to the stage this year as live performances resume.
