Dance like an Egyp­tian at South­lands

Uxbridge Gazette - - What’s On -

TICK­ETS go on sale this week for the gar­den party turned mini fes­ti­val known lo­cally and col­lo­qui­ally as South­land­sLIVE.

Set an­nu­ally amid the idyl­lic grounds of South­lands Art Cen­tre, The Green, West Dray­ton, this now pop­u­lar diary date (Satur­day July 21) is in its sixth year and al­though its ku­dos has snow­balled it has re­mained de­cid­edly cosy and rather quaint as well as re­main­ing very en­ter­tain­ing.

Show­cas­ing mu­si­cal tal­ents from in and around the Hilling­don Bor­ough over the years has been its pur­pose as well as rais­ing aware­ness of the fa­cil­i­ties of the art cen­tre it­self.

As usual there will be both main stage bands and an acous­tic stage for those in­clined for the gen­tler tones as well as the di­verse ar­ray of stalls in the mini mar­ket dot­ted be­tween the two stages.

The en­tire lineup for the day is as yet un­con­firmed, but those def­i­nitely down to play are as fol­lows:

A Hilling­don in­die dance four piece called Egyp­tians (pic­tured) fea­tur­ing ace song­writer Ethan Beer and backed by ex Har­lings and 10 Pound mem­bers; ethe­real and psy­che­delic folk in­stru­men­tal­ist mae­stros Flu­ta­tious with their flutes, vi­o­lins and key­board flavoured stom­pers; a soul­ful, pop, jazz and rock tinged four­some from Hemel Hemp­stead known as April Blue; plus an opera singer from Moldova called Clau­dia Anghel.

So as you can see it’s quite a di­verse af­ter­noon – and that’s just a taster of the mul­ti­tude of acts planned for the day ahead.
