The Adventures of Captain Of The Lost Waves is a musical, storytelling fuelled show which is different every time. Taking its inspiration from music hall, vaudeville and folk/cabaret, fused with the modern twist of an intergalactic time detective’s travels. Where anthems, anecdotes and absurdity reign, expect improvisation and intuitive performance that will pull you in to a mystical and dream-like world.

This concert will be the first outing of the โ€˜launch of the shipโ€™ … a bespoke theatrical extravaganza of props and lighting to engage you in an immersive visual and sonic experience. The Captain plays bouzouki, mandolin and ukulele; and tonight is joined by his stalwart Lieutenant, Muswell the Mute (classically trained accordion / accordina and melodeon player).

โ€œLike imagining Charlie Chaplin with the voices of Freddie Mercury and Klaus Nomi, singing songs written by Irving Berlin.โ€ โ€“ Glastonbury Festival

โ€œThere really are no words in the English Language to describe The Captain … he was born to be a showman, perhaps even a prophet.โ€ โ€“ The Huffington Post

โ€œA big thinker, a philosopher, a story teller, a ring master, musical magician, man of mystery and a writer of very strange and mystical songs.โ€ โ€“ BBC Radio Wales

โ€œCinemascopic, epic, extraordinary and unique.โ€ โ€“ Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music
