A new piece created by Schwa for Spring 2016.

Join musicians Peter Spafford, Richard Ormrod and guest vocalist Jacqui Wicks for an evening of song exploring the possibilities of hospitality, from Homer to Budget Hotels. Original songs, reworkings of classic texts and beautiful storytelling combine to make an evening of warmth and contemplation of the meaning of welcome.

Come on in and stay a while. Take off your coat and warm yourself by the fire. There are stories to tell, songs to sing. A warm bed, a cup of tea and the comfort of strangers. Step over the threshold.


‘sublime playing and tales to melt away the blues’ – The Lux

‘An unforgettable evening that makes you respond to strangers in a new way’ – A Firm of Poets
