London return of his NYC-based Cabinet of Wonders
Gary Louris (The Jayhawks)
Gary Louris (The Jayhawks)
The names in the Cabinet, in which Britain's greatest
writers, comedians, musicians and composers rub
alphabetical shoulders with bespoke American
imports, need no introduction:
Award-winning authors Jonathan Coe, Ian McEwan and Nina Stibbe
Beloved comedians Rich Hall, Harry Hill and Dave Hill
and a wild variety of great music: from uncategorizable composer Gavin Bryars (playing Jesus' Blood Never
Failed Me Yet, with his ensemble) to Rutle and fifth Python Neil Innes; from legendary British soul singer
Linda Lewis to Gary Louris of influential American alternative country band, The Jayhawks, flying in
Also featuring Pete Aves & The Manuals - the guitarist from The High Llamas provides the house band.
And MC/Kabinettmeister Wesley Stace - This Sussex-born "renaissance man" (The New Yorker) bestrides the
literary and musical worlds like a slightly camp colossus. His new album, recorded with alt-country legends
The Jayhawks was released by Yep Roc in February of this year.
"The Cabinet began as a way of bringing together my writer friends who often envy my musician friends with
my musician friends who sometimes envy my writer friends and the comedians who generally envy - and are
envied by - both of them", Stace explains. "Basically, it's only things I love. You can have your own show, and
this is mine. Over the years the shows have established a convivial atmosphere all of their own - Harry Hill
likened it to the Alternative Cabaret of our youth - and I can't wait to bring that mood back to London."
Since 2009, Wesley Stace's Cabinet of Wonders has established itself in America as an exciting stage for
prominent and emerging voices in the worlds of music, literature and comedy. The November shows
represent the most astounding amalgamation of cross-disciplinary star quality gathered under one roof since
the first two London Cabinets at Cecil Sharp House in 2015 and 2016.
