Event conceived and produced by Simon Thackray
Mrs Boyes’ Bingo featuring Mark Sanders was first performed at The Shed in June 1999 as part of The Shed ‘far removed’ weekend of improvised music and happenings, including Thackray’s famous Yorkshire Pudding Boat Race.
Mrs Boyes’ Bingo featuring Mark Sanders is a standard game of prize bingo (audiences win prizes!) with simultaneous drumming and percussion / disruption. The gig stars legendary bingo caller Eileen Boyes and leading European improviser Mark Sanders on drums. With special guests previously including Oren Marshall, Sarah Gail Brand, Lol Coxhill, Alan Tomlinson and John Edwards, Mrs Boyes’ Bingo featuring Mark Sanders has been performed at FuseLeeds, Belfast International Festival, the Music Research Centre, University of York and the National Centre For Early Music. Seeing (and hearing) is believing. This is a rare combination of free improvisation and fun!
