8.45 pm: Intermediate level partnerwork and Improver (and above) rueda (Cuban group dance, performed in a circle or ‘wheel’)

– Beginner classes introduce you to salsa music, teach the basic footwork steps and let you take your first steps dancing with a partner.

– Improver classes build up your repertoire of fundamental partner work sequences.

– Intermediate classes build up more advanced partner work and solo patterns, and help develop body movement and musicality.

9.30 pm till 12.30: Dance into the night with a mix that includes salsa, timba, bachata, regaetton, merengue, latin pop and more.

Classes are just £5 for one class or £7 for two classes. Entry to social dancing after 9.30 is free.

telfords-folk-session

Hosted by local folk pioneers The Deportees will be inviting down folk musicians to join them in an organised folk session on Telford’s intimate window stage. Playing is by invite only or you can get in touch with them direct via contact.deportees.com and arrange a show with them as house band.

Mick Adrian and Graham  play guitars, mandolin, mandocello, bouzouki and banjo as well as  harmonica and melodeon – almost entirely acoustic, but with some subtle electric guitar touches.

Most of all they sing  – three voices finding unexpected harmonies in a mix of old and recent songs from both sides of the Atlantic, some written by themselves, others by their heroes like Woody Guthrie, Richard Thompson, Hank Williams, John Martyn,  Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Robert Johnson, Buddy Holly, Tom Waits and good old Trad Arr.You’ll hear songs to join in with, songs to make you think, songs to move you and songs to get you moving

Celebrating the release of their first collection of studio tracks ‘Wellbeing EP’ Indie-pop 5 piece, Campfire Social, are a refuge from the wild woods all around. Their incandescent, melodic songs take the intimate heartbreak of Elliott Smith and embellish with golden harmonies borrowed from The Beach Boys. At times getting you up off your chairs in a passionate rage, at others just to dance but always filled with hope. 

Last year the band released the single ‘Nothing Nowhere Never Now’, listed by Adam Walton (BBC Wales), Rock Current (podcast) and Drunk on Music (Blog) in their best of 2016 roundups.
That song is now one of two tracks from the newly released Wellbeing EP selected for the A-list by BBC Radio Wales resulting in continued airplay, a live session with Janice Long and further BBC 6 music plays. Now the band have taken on a ‘full steam ahead’ philosophy, performing as much as possible including a scheduled appearance at this years festival number 6 and a trip to South Korea, with the Backing of Focus Wales and WAI, for this years Zandari Festa.

In a UK reggae scene that has long eschewed bands in favor of sound systems, Backbeat Soundsystem are a different beast, bringing 8 musicians to the stage. While many of their peers are slavish in their attempt to recreate an authentic Jamaican-leaning sound, Backbeat Soundsystem are not afraid to go in totally different directions, pulling in influences from all across the music spectrum, to create their vision of modern reggae. Dean and Adjua effortlessly tear up the stage with lush harmonies, soaring melodies and natural born chemistry. This combined with a flawless horn section and undeniable groove leaves the audience mesmerised by their show stopping performance. Bringing an electronic flavour to the mix, with dub effects, sirens and live analog synthesiser, Backbeat Soundsystem remind the world that dub reggae is at the forefront of dance music culture.
