Songs from the Southside

Beth Clarke
Image

Beth writes and sings songs about all sorts of things: the trials of lockdown, relationships that work – and ones that don’t – and lesser-known minor deities. And cats – she really loves cats – but she surprised herself last year by writing a song about dogs. She loves to laugh, so there will definitely be some humour along the way. She also loves a poignant song, so you’ll be treated to a few of those too. She never could master the guitar, which mangled her fingers, but she has managed to get to grips – at least somewhat – with a gorgeously mellow mandola.

Heroes, Revised

Majk Stokes
Image

What defines a hero in the 21st century? Is it machismo and the ability to rescue people from burning buildings, or can we re-think what we mean by heroism to take in compassion, common sense, activism and doing the jobs that need to be done? Is it protecting your country, or protecting your planet? In the 2020’s, does it take a certain amount of heroism just to get through the day? Join Quaker environmentalist, comedy singer-songwriter and poet Majk Stokes as he explores war, peace, religion, the environment, Marvel superhero movies and trainspotting to find out.
