Standing In Line: Lester Simpson & Blaise Theatre

Last week we commemorated the end of hostilities of The Great War and paid our respect to victims of all other conflicts. This Saturday Lester Simpson and the musical duo Blaize will present the story of Lester’s Uncle, Albert Scrimshaw, who was born in Eastwell on the Leics/Notts border, and died at Passendale.

The show features songs from the period and some of Lester’s original songs, illustrated by projected images and the poems of Wilfred Owen, Seigfried Sassoon and Rudyard Kipling.

Lester has visited Mellor Brook before as part of the A cappella folk trio Coope, Boyes & Simpson.
