In association with Homespun Sessions, The Secret Showcase Presents... The Big Pancake Party!
This is our third year running this very fun and incredibly worthwhile fund-raiser for The Big Issue Foundation.
On Shrove Tuesday the 4th of March join Floripa for a pancake extravaganza. You can enjoy lots of pancake fun and live performances from three wonderfully talented and kindly charitable acts...
The Severed Limb at 9.30pm
The Severed Limb are a young six-piece band from London who play roots influenced music for a contemporary audience. Their skiffle-style line up includes washboard, guitars, double bass, drums and accordion. Their music has been championed by Steve Lamacq and Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2, Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy on XFM, Andrew Weatherall on XOYO, and Dave Gorman on Absolute Radio.
In April 2011 Steve Lamacq invited the band into the famous BBC Maida Vale Studio to record four tracks for a BBC 6 Music session. The tracks were filmed (see video section of this website). The band have also performed live on Clive Anderson's 'Loose Ends' radio show on BBC Radio 4. In May 2012 The Severed Limb performed at the Royal Albert Hall, supporting Imelda May who personally invited them to play. In September 2013 as part of BBC Radio 4's British New Wave season several Severed Limb songs were used to soundtrack Robert Rigby's acclaimed dramatisation of Alan Sillitoe's 1958 novel 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'. The Severed Limb's unique style encompasses a wide variety of musical styles including skiffle, folk, punk, zydeco, cumbia and rock and roll.
Whom By Fire at 8.45
Heavy haunting fairytale blues. Inspired by dreams, Lynch, Herzog, Cobain and Cohen they usher you into a world of dark romantic tragedy.
Seraphim Kelly at 8.00
Seraphim Kelly is an exciting up and coming singer songwriter from Belfast, Ireland. He moved to London in April 2013 and in between working on new material you can often still find him busking on the streets of Camden. With a rich and diverse background in music that took Seraphim on a journey of self, he re-discovered his roots in folk and country. Adding his own personal touch and delivered with a voice so powerful and rich, listening to Seraphim perform his songs is always a deeply emotional experience. His inspiration stems from often simple but meaningful experiences and encounters, connecting with people from all sorts of backgrounds which lead to an emotionally driven delivery that reflects his heart and passion for life and song every time.
