A benefit for St Augustine’s Centre – offering support to those seeking asylum in Halifax and Calderdale.

‘Section 14’ 
“Joyous jazz and global grooves, Section 14 is an uplifting new band formed as a musical expression of hope and defiance amid systems in crisis. Section 14 is led with the beautiful jazz piano of Daniel Bath and underpinned by the earthily grooving bass of Adam Medlock and incomparable drumming of Martin Davies. The exuberant rainbow of top-line includes woodwind wizard Peadar Long, Atholl Ransome (of Amy Winehouse fame) and Klezmer superstar violinist, Stephen Shulman. Special guest Congolese vocals from Sarah Douniama and musicians from St. Augustine’s Refugee Centre. ”

Soul Stu & DJ Indignados 
Expect a vinyl explosion, straight from the crate and across the board: civil rights soul, alt. takes, Motown, jazz funk and afro beat, with the odd new release, carefully dropped in. From George Benson thru Ben Pirani, we’ve got the dance floor covered.

Politics – a speaker about climate justice TBC/ XR Calderdale speaker.

Geoff Winde 
“There are a lot of spoken word artists who play with a backup band of some kind. Not so many that do both spoken word and music at the same time — and do both things brilliantly. Geoff Winde might just be the philosopher-poet-musician you didn’t know you were looking for.” (David Rovics)
