Rye Creative Centre will be presenting an evening of music celebrating the songs of the great Carole King on November 18 at 7:30pm
From early chart toppers to the ground-breaking and legendary Tapestry and beyond, King has penned some of the biggest hits and most recognisable melodies in popular music.
The evening will include performances of You’ve Got a Friend, One Fine Day, It’s Too Late, I Feel The Earth Move, So Far Away, The Locomotion, Up On The Roof, (You make me feel like) A Natural Woman and many more.
There will be live music from the Jane Austen Seven (including Al Hounsell on guitar, Rob McCaig on bass and Paul Moon on percussion) accompanying a talented assortment of vocalists with some special guest musicians.
We are joined by not one vocal ensemble, but two for this concert. The wonderful Hastings Gospel Choir led by Juliet Russell will be joining us for a couple of numbers including our title song Natural Woman and also Rye’s own Wall of Sound singing ensemble will be delivering some a capella versions of three classic hits including the much loved Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?.
Local vocalists Clare Ashton-Cobb and Julie Edmonds will be there and I am also thrilled to have KATFM’s Rhonda Merrick and Ritchie Swann with us who are both exceptional musicians and songwriters. Ali Catt and Chris Fisher will present a segment focusing on James Taylor, who of course has been a long-time friend and collaborator of King’s, with songs they recorded together.
Tickets are available in advance (£12) from Rye Creative Centre, from Grammar School Records and the ARRCC Shop, Cinque Ports St, Rye or on the door (£15). Tel: 01797 229368 / 07512 679633
