Lester Simpson and Nigel Corbett – Will Ye Go To Flanders – One hundred years after the end of The Great War, Lester Simpson and Nigel Corbett present an alternative commemoration in songs and music accompanied on a variety of stringed instruments, accordion and bagpipes. Lester, best known for his work with acapella trio Coope Boyes and Simpson, first became involved with ‘Peace Concerts Passchendaele’ in 1994 and over the intervening years has written many songs and tunes inspired by frequent trips to the battle fields of Flanders and many concerts performed in the area. The show will use both Lester’s songs and others contemporary with WW1. Nigel has played with, amongst others, The Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra, Prego, Feet First, and Some Antics. His musical collaboration with Lester began in 2000 with a ‘Peace Concerts Passchendaele’ production called ‘Standing In Line’ which premiered in the parish church of Passendale, and they have continued to perform together ever since on many projects.
