Due to the Corona Virus, many of my bookings were being postponed or cancelled. My diary did look a lot fuller, but as you can understand it’s thinner out. It’s slowly filling up once more, and hopefully this pandemic is under enough control now that it can continue that way. Anything below is on unless I’m further informed.
Wednesday 10th – Saturday 13th November 2021 at Devonshire Park Theatre at 7:45pm (plus Weds & Sat Mat. at 2:30pm) – The Pirates Of Penzance with Eastbourne Gilbert and Sullivan Society
After a successful debut of my Yamaha EL-900 electronic organ, one man orchestra arrangement of this classic G&S operetta in Oct 2019 alongside HLO Musical Company, I am having another opportunity to perform the arrangement alongside Eastbourne G&S Society. I don’t know anything about the company as yet, but I do know you can’t go wrong with Pirates. So please if you are near here, please do buy a ticket a come and support this as I can promise you will not be disappointed.
Saturday 20th November 2021 at St. Stephen’s Church Hall, Hounslow at 4pm (Time TBC) – The Mikado from Scratch with HLO Musical Company
After over a year of sitting online building up our repertoire, we wanted to get back to live performance and singing together and what better way of getting everyone singing than to do a classic G&S from scratch. This will have lots of people who are with the company or connected with the company in some way singing through this show and it will be accompanied by my Yamaha EL-900 electronic organ, one man orchestra arrangement that I debuted with the company in October 2016. An event not to be missed, so please contact the company for further information whether you wish to take part or just come and enjoy.
Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th December 2021 (Venues and times TBC) – HLO Musical Company Christmas Concert
The company normally does 2 main events in a year, one show and one concert/revue. This year with so many events being missed in the last 2 years, we are squeezing more in than ever before. We can manage this with minimal rehearsal due to the extreme work that we put in over lockdown on Zoom where I broke down songs to individual notes and taught them from scratch over video on a weekly basis. We learnt a variety of music in this time, random things to add to the existing repertoire, our Roaring Twenties repertoire (performed in Oct 21) and also some Christmas music. The hope was that we would be able to do a Christmas event in the coming years and now we can. It’s the beginning of the merry music season and this should set you up nicely. So do come along.
Monday 13th December 2021 at 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Medway Organ and Keyboard Club
Postponed from April 2021. This was rebooked for May 2022 and now has been moved closer. This will be a great evening as it gives me a chance to play some of my Christmas repertoire. If this is close to you, please do come along and support me as I play a variety of musical styles on my organ and piano.
Thursday 16th – Friday 31st December 2021 – Snow White at Questor’s Theatre, Ealing
It’s panto time again and I have once more been invited to join my close musician friends to join them in the pit (or on stage in the case of this one) to play alongside this talented cast as they bring laughter and joy to another bunch of audiences over this festive season. This is an event that is local to me and not to be missed. Please do look up the dates and times we’re playing on their website and come and have a fun filled time.
Thursday 7th April 2022 at 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at North Staffs Organ & Keyboard Club
Another new area for me that I haven’t visited before. If this is close to you, then please do come along as I bring an evening of music to this area.
Thursday 14th April 2022 at 2:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Sleaford Organ Club
This was originally planned for April 2021 but was postponed due to the pandemic. It’s another place I haven’t visited before, so if this is your area of the UK, please do contact me for further details and stop by and hear my variety of musical styles on various instruments
Wednesday 4th – Saturday 7th May 2022 at Hampton Hill Theatre at 7:45pm (plus Sat Mat. at 2:30pm) – Trial By Music with HLO Musical Company
This was originally planned for October 2020, but due to the pandemic was postponed and is now in May 2022 in the hope of being able to squeeze an additional show in October 2022. This is a Gilbert & Sullivan extravaganza written by director Wesley Henderson Roe which finished with the one act operetta Trial By Jury by Gilbert & Sullivan. The performance of Trial By Jury will be accompanied by my Yamaha EL-900 electronic organ, one man orchestra arrangement that I debuted with the company in March 2017. If you’ve never heard my arrangements before, it’s worth a trip for that alone, but with HLO Musical Company alongside me and the amazing talented Wesley HR directing too, this is set to be a spectacular performance and one not to be missed.
Wednesday 1st June 2022 at 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at North Herts Organ Society
Another rebooking from during the pandemic. This ones a little closer to home than some are. As ever, if this is close to you, please do come and support me as I perform a variety of musical styles on a variety of keyboard instruments and do my bit to keep the music alive in this difficult time.
Tuesday 9th August 2022 – Time TBC – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Lowestoft Keyboard & Organ Club
Postponed from 2020. Last time I went to Lowestoft, I was a child playing in an organ competition. It’ll be nice to go back here years on play here now. If this is your area, please do come along and support me and live music as the arts tries to get back on its feet after a difficult few years.
Monday 22nd August 2022 – 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Derby Organ & Keyboard Club
This was originally booked for August 2020, and it will be nice to go there in the summer. As ever, I will be performing my usual variety of styles on the organ and piano, so if this is local to you, play do stop by and support me and enjoy an evening of music to start your week.
Monday 19th September 2022 at 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at The Organised Music Society in Hull
This booking has been postponed twice now due to the pandemic, so third time lucky. This will be the furthest I’ve ever travelled to play a concert, and I’m very much looking forward to taking my music to this part of the country. If this is close to you, this please come along and say hi and listen to a variety of music on a variety of instruments.
Tuesday 20th September 2022 at 2:00pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Barnsley White Rose Organ & Keyboard Society
This is another booking that has been postponed due to the pandemic. It was meant to match nicely with the concert in Hull the day before being close by each other. Thankfully they have rebooked me to match the rebooking from Hull, so this will be a nice couple of days for me sharing my music in two locations around the UK within 24 hours. If this is your area, and you’re around in the afternoon, please do stop by and enjoy a concert of musical variety.
Thursday 3rd November 2022 at 7:30pm – Lee Dewsnap in Concert at Weston Organ & Keyboard Club
This is a rebooking after the pandemic caused it to be cancelled. Another new location for me to take my music to. If this is your area, then please do pop by and hear my wide variety of musical styles played on a wide variety of musical instruments.
Thought I’d add here what I’m doing and have been doing in lockdown.
The two main things are recordings for my church and recordings for HLO Musical Company. Both are on Zoom and if you are interested in finding out more about what I’ve been producing, please do contact me for more information or you can request a Zoom link for either, and see for yourself first hand what’s happening musically.
