Mayor and his mandolin come to Aylesbury’s Limelight Theatre

Share this article

SIMON Mayor is one of the world’s leading mandolin virtuosos and composers for the instrument as well as a fine guitarist and fiddle player.

Hilary James is regarded as one of the purest singing voices to be found on the English musical stage.

Quintessentially English, they easily cross the great musical divides from British ballads to blues and Berlioz.

They have that rare ability that allows them to perform a truly diverse array of music with respect and affection held together by humorous introductions.

Their repertoire encompasses folk, traditional, Celtic, swing, blues and classical music richly illustrated by a diverse range of instruments from mandolin, guitar, banjos and ukuleles.

The pair play at Aylesbury’s Limelight Theatre on Friday, October 7 – tickets cost £11 from 01296 424332.
