Music and comedy Ensembled in Lancaster for Comic Relief

Popular teenage musician Nancy Kent appears at St. Thomas Church as part of the Esemble@StTs line up on Friday
A new series of cafe caberet evenings launches at St Thomas Church on Penny Street, Lancaster on Friday 18th March – and are set to prove as popular as previous events.

Offering a great line up of talent from around the country and close to home, Ensemble @ St T’s will be showcasing three great acts during the evening, providing a great mix of music and comedy.

Local girl Nancy Kent will be performing with her band and singing a selection of self-written thoughtful songs. Blending ballad and up tempo numbers, Nancy is rapidly making a name for herself as the area’s rising star. She claims that the things which happen around her are the things which sway her music the most: local music magazine Ark Magazine says her music is "girl-next-door and down to earth, something people can relate to".

Accomplished singer/songwriter Dave Woodman has broken his busy schedule to be in Lancaster on the night. Based in the sub-tropical plains of Lancashire, UK, David Woodman has noodled his way into the musical DNA of a diverse array of artists, including Breakspear , Indie rock legend, Doug Walker, US-based gospel Diva, Elaine Hanley and the "odd but satisfying" acoustic combo, Lonesome.

He recently provided music for the Breakspear film, Valerie's Orchard - visit to see the trailer.

Comedy comes courtesy of Andy Kind who is the perfect choice to round up this Comic Relief night event. Andy is a full-time stand-up comedian and is one of the pioneers behind the new wave of Clean Comedy hitting the UK comedy circuit. He has performed all over the country, winning awards and acclaim as he goes. Since winning ‘Anything for Laffs’, he has gone on to be recognised as one of the warmest and most engaging talents in British comedy.
