Two Man Ting on Friday 3rd April 2020

Please note, this event has been postponed.
New date to be announced in due course.

Two ManTing was formed in 2004, when Jon Lewis and Jah-man Aggrey were working together in world/dance band Le Cod Afrique, performing at the likes of WOMAD, Montreux Jazz Festival and Glastonbury.

Since then, the duo has been performing regularly throughout the UK, and particularly on the Festival circuit. Festie shows have included Glastonbury, the Secret Garden Party, Musicport, Green Man, Whychwood, Big Green Gathering, Off the Tracks, Sunrise Celebration, Broadstairs Folk Week, Small World, name but a few.

Recent arts centre shows have incuded support slots for Mali desert-blues legends, Tinariwen, and Muntu Valdo. TwoManTing are regularly featured on UK and US radio stations.

The album “Legacy” is a collection of 12 songs, some old, some new, all recorded in the Autumn of 2010. We feel it captures the essence of the live TwoManTing show, with Jon’s bouncy African guitar licks, live looped to create a full band sound. This is complemented by Jah’s djembe beats, and meaningful and witty lyrics, sung in Krio - his native tongue from Sierra Leone.

“ John Peel would play something like this on his programme and the world would suddenly
seem a better place” Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music

“Brilliant – love this sound! If you want to get a bit of early summer, then get this in
your ear-holes!” Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

“Quite delightful! Duvet Song will get you dancing under the covers…”

Lopa Kothari, World on 3, BBC Radio 3

Doors open at 7.30pm & music will commence at 8.00pm.
Note that this will be a mainly seated show.
