1. Meraki Duo

Formed in 2013, the Meraki Duo enjoys exploring the diversity of repertoire available to the flute-guitar pairing while contributing arrangements of their own. Meera Maharaj and James Girling both studied at the RNCM, sharing a passion for chamber music spanning jazz, classical and folk territories. They love performing in a wide variety of contexts and venues; most recently, these have included St James’s Church in Piccadilly, the Bridgewater Hall as part of Craig Ogden’s Guitar Weekend, and even a barn in Cumbria.

2. Manchester School of Samba

From their humble beginnings in Sankey's Soap through being the centre of 1,800 performers in the year 2000 in Castlefield Manchester School of Samba have been entertaining crowds at stadiums and on parades both within Manchester and beyond since March 1995. The costumes were made for both the Manchester Day Parades where they performed with both a brass section and giant puppets. They

They have been to Germany, The Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands and France.

3. Helgi Clayton McClure

Writing songs for ten years, Helgi has always tried to flout traditional lyrical themes but sticking religiously to the constraint of guitar-based instrumentation.

Described variously as “The New Jake Thackray” and “like a brownstone step – warm but with a hard edge”, his aim is always to entertain first and self-indulge later.

Helgi has made close to 500 public appearances both in his own right and as a bass player and guitarist with various bands; a hard drive failure and subsequent loss of written records has meant this can only be a rough estimate.

Helgi is setting up a string of shows for 2018 in the hope of a DIY album release at some point down the line; he’d love it if you visited his new online hideaway at helgi.co.uk.
— Classical Evolution returns to Night & Day Cafe for its February stint of its monthly residency at Night & Day.

Chamber (noun)

1. a large room used for formal or public events.

2. an enclosed space or cavity.

Expect the unexpected as we redefine chamber music for the 21st Century iPod/Spotify genreation; we have a large room, we have a stage cavity, now we just need the public to make it an event. Our uniquely chilled night foregrounds classical and chamber music, allowing it to mush with any other genres, with no concert etiquette.

If you would like to be involved/find out more about this event or the other events in the new year, drop me an email at [email protected]; although it is an open-mic feel, it isn’t just a “turn up out of the blue” event as we have limited time to set up.
