Top piano-led, close-harmony singer songwriting acoustic trio Mumbo-Jumbo bring their ‘Troubadours & Raconteurs’ show to Martley Village Hall on Saturday 16th September in a unique ‘pay what you think we’re worth’ performance.
Playing regularly in village halls for Shindig and Live & Local, Mumbo-Jumbo features former Martley resident and singer/trumpeter Oliver Carpenter along with pianist Phil Bond and bass player Chris Lomas.
With Mumbo-Jumbo you not only get excellent, interesting songs and three lead voices, but also a whole flock of instruments including piano, accordion, bass, trumpet, ukulele, guitar, washboard, kazoo and percussion.
“We really enjoy the village hall atmosphere where local communities come together to share in the music,” said Oliver Carpenter (shortlisted in the 2016 British Blues Awards for Best Instrumentalist and in previous years with Chris for Best Songwriters).
“We chose Martley to test out this new idea of ‘Pay what you think we are worth’ which means that you come to the gig for free and then decide what you want to pay at the end. Shindig gigs are normally between £8-10 up front, but we want to see if, by getting people along to check us out for free, we might attract a bigger crowd who each decide at the end of the night what is a fair price for the entertainment they have received. We are confident they are going to have a great time!”
Regulars on the blues, folk and acoustic festival and club circuit, Mumbo-Jumbo sits somewhere between blues, folk and jazz with tinges of reggae and whatever else takes their fancy on the night. With songs about old soldiers, baldness and the joy of life the guys bring humour and fun to the performance. Tracks from the trio’s 2016 album ‘Sonic Gumbo’ has featured widely on the radio.
There will be a good bar on for the evening with Teme Valley ales, a range of wines and Mill Orchards apple juice etc.
