SUNDAY 

Sheffield Chinese Lion Dance Group (12 noon)

We look forward to welcoming Sheffield Chinese Lion Dance Group to Rotherham Show for the first time with their exciting performance.  The dance itself is characterised by skilful, quick, and lively movements where the lion is brought to life. During all of this, the tail is matching the footwork patterns, movements and mood displayed by the head, as well as preparing for the jumps and various acrobatic displays.

The movements of the lion must coordinate with the beat of the drum, gong, and cymbals. The instruments play three-, five-, seven- and nine-star beats which are lucky celestial numbers to the various movements and emotions of the lion

Mestisa (1pm)

Almost 20 years ago Ana Luisa and Barbara met in Leeds at one of the open mic nights at The Grove and they’ve been playing and singing together ever since forming the core of Mestisa.

The striking rhythms of their music together with their beautifully melded harmonies are what makes Mestisa very special. Mestisa performs traditional and popular music from Latin America: romantic Boleros, Argentinian zambas, Chilean tonadas and lively Bolivian huaynos.

They have recently started writing and performing their own original songs, some of these may well appear in the set. Mestisa have headlined at Filey Folk Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Seven Arts in Leeds, played at Kendal Calling, Musicport and Chapel Allerton Arts Festivals as well as taking part in several international concert seasons at Leeds University's clothworkers Hall.
