& other weird tales from the Saragossa Manuscript

By Count Jan Potocki for Voice and Guitar


“A ghoulish, sexy, baffling head-banger of a show.”

Michael Dacre, storyteller, and Steve Yates, guitarist, conjure you to 18th century Spain in an Arabian Nights-style entertainment of tales within tales within tales, accompanied and interwoven by the magical strings of the guitar.

You will meet (very) Moorish princesses, hanged men and a host of ghosts, ghouls, vampires, gypsies & wizards, not to mention lovely senoritas, bewitching serenades, foot-tapping Spanish dances and eerie sound-effects that will send a shiver down your spine…

Horror, humour, high adventure and thrilling music mungle in this fantastic duet of wicked words and virtuoso guitar playing.

“risky, weird and wonderful – hard-core storytelling”
“it was the best thing I’ve ever seen!”
“I have to see it again!”
“I got immediately drunk on the music and the atmosphere: the deep, sultry, sexual reds of the whole thing”
