Christmas Show – Chetton 17th December

Arts Alive Presents



A Winter’s Light

Christmas show featuring the a cappella four part harmonies of the unusual Sheffield and Derbyshire traditions and beyond. Plus a reflection of some of the less reverent aspects of the festive season from Christmas lights to food and presents. When not singing unaccompanied they play piano, soprano sax, fiddle and accordion giving a great breadth of sound. This is a “feel-good festive feast” (FROOTS).

Hark Hark is the collective name for Christmas shows as performed by Barry Coope, Lester Simpson, Jo Freya and Fi Fraser. They have done three seasons as this quartet and have a new show for 2016 onwards. The show is called ‘A Winters Light’. Reflecting all aspects of the winter season from the beautiful polyphonic carols, of North Yorkshire, Derbyshire and more to the irreverent nature at Christmas of finance, food and fun.

Each year new material becomes  the main part of the shows but old favourites have to be revisited as there are many beautiful carols that are only sung by us. The repertoire is either sung in a cappella four part harmony or accompanied on various instruments including piano, soprano sax, fiddle, accordion and traditional flutes.


Every year several people say – “Christmas starts with you” and they seek out a place to come and see them often willing to travel far to do it.  Their CD Hark Hark was described in EDS as “ A recording for life, not just for Christmas. As good as that.” and fRoots: “ A seasonal frolic with a special blend of voices that is lusty in both character and attack. Yes Hark Hark fulfils its function, furnishing us with a feelgood festive feast” – These comments aptly describe the live experience.
