THE STABLES: IN PREVIEW WITH MARTYN JOSEPH, STEPHANIE O'BRIEN AND MORE...

The Stables presents a little Rock 'n' Roll Paradise for you this Thursday evening (June 26) with a big tip of the cap to the golden era of music. 'You'll be blown away by Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee lewis, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, the Big Bopper and Eddie Cochran as these icons join each other on stage for a musical extravaganza,' promise those behind the show. There is another blast from the past rocking up on Friday night (June 27) too - The Troggs. The band behind Love Is All Around and Wild Thing will be trawling through their extensive back catalogue, with support from Serious Blues. Martyn Joseph (above) returns to one of his most favoured venues on Saturday night (June 28) with a show of special importance. He is launching his Let Yourself Trust, which he hopes will benefit global charities and grass-roots local people projects across the UK. Saturday's show will enable you to find out more about the empowering project - Martin is well known for his humanitarian work and support of charities including Advantage Africa and Guatemala's children village Project Somos. Tickets for the event are on sale at £20, and patron of the Let Yourself Trust, Radio 2s Bob Harris will introduce the evening. While Martin gets busy in the Jim Marshall Auditorium, one-time Puppini Sister Stephanie O'Brien (below) will hold court in Stage 2, with a show mixing up a little bit of jazz, pop and folk. Singer/Songwriter Stephanie O'Brien Stephanie - who has collaborated with Michael Buble - will live-loop her voice before working in violin and guitar to cleverly reproduce the sound, feel and energy of a complete band. Saturday is going to be quite a night at the venue... Rounding up the weekend, Sunday welcomes The Jiving Lindy Hoppers and Harry Strutters' Hot Rhythm Orchestra. They will play the music and celebrate the dance and songs of New York's Cotton Club, which ruled the roost in the 1920 and 30s.
