Kali Juga Jive – A Story Concert

Skedaddle! are a jazz band based around Totnes in Devon. We play upbeat, good-time music that is a great gift from the wonderful musicians of old. For 4 dates, Skedaddle is joined by Story-wizard Iwan Kushka for their rambunctious rendition of an epic Indian tale in which two boys meet one girl and lose their hearts (and heads) in the process. When they eventually find help, it is from none other than great Kali, the darkest of all Goddesses. A mythic experience of rhapsodic scale, humour, and Eastern wisdom, interlaced with an up-beat jazzy musical score. BBQ and gorgeous salads by ‘The Kitchen Table’ conscious catering, plus a fully licensed bar stocked with wine and local beers. Day Program: Afternoon: 4 to 4.30pm: Musical tales for kids: "When Peter met the Wolf in New Orleans" 5 to 5.30pm: Musical tales for kids: "The strange story of Kiffir" BBQ + Bar are open all day Tickets are £5, free for under 4's. Evening: 6 to 7pm: come for BBQ + Bar 7pm: ‘Kali Yuga Jive’ Story-Concert followed by Swing-jazz Party with Skedaddle live! Tickets £10/ £5 for under 10's
