As dusk approached this Easter saturday, art and music came together in the Courtyard of Donny’s The Mason’s Arms. Doncopolitan may have made flowers out of old issues to decorate the tables (I say ‘we’, it was all Rachel Horne)… Cute, right? …But the rest was down to the talent of Doncaster, the help of the staff at The Mason’s and the support of all the Doncolites that listened (even in the FREEZING cold).
The aim of the night was simply to appreciate Doncaster’s music scene (which of course, you all know is massive) and keep showing support for local artists the way Doncaster does so well.
Bam is a young musician from Doncocaster who can make a room (or in this case a courtyard) silent with just his voice and acoustic guitar. He plays original material all over Doncaster and recently started developing his EP for download. This is a slow process but his voice is certainly worth the wait so be sure to keep checking for new material. You can find Bam’s heartwarming music (every song gives you an insight into his amazing story) on Spotify, iTunes and even on our YouTube channel.
Want to hear more about Bam? Find his inspirational story on pages 38-39 in issue 6 of Doncopolitan. Or add him on Twitter or Facebook to organise an event/project with this young Donny talent.
Just like Bam, Karl Scott is a Doncaster talent who writes all his own music and songs. However whereas Bam plays in bars such as the Cask corner on a regular basis, Karl travels for months at a time and focuses heavily on house concerts – not just on the road, but when he is back in Donny too! So there is beautiful Doncaster talent available in more than one environment, depending on your preference.
He too is looking to release an EP and always has hard copies of his music with him when he performs. But Karl’s talents don’t stop at singing, song-writing or playing instruments (he used four just in this one event), but he currently records and designs his own records, creates his own music videos and does other artistic projects such as up-cycled products.
If you want to contact Karl about a house concert or other project/event, you can find him on Facebook.
Rama Ramski (AKA Neil Rands) is the definition of a true Yorkshire soul. He is warm, funny and approachable. But under all his Yorkshire friendliness lies pure, creative talent. Ramski became a full time painter in 2009 after working in the construction trade.
His work consists of Neo-expressionism inspired by a spiritual influence and the moving between space and time. This was particularly the concept he used during the event as he began to create a representation of music moving through time in the same ways as art while Karl Scott performed his music.

If you want to know more or want to see the performances from the night, keep an eye out for the uploads to our website, www.doncopolitan.com.
See you soon!
If you fancy experiencing something a little different make sure you go to the Ukrainian Club on Saturday 21st March for an all day art and music extravaganza.
Becky Banks is a local musician and we wanted to salute her for working hard for such a good cause:
“I particularly wanted to do something for the Neo-Natal unit in memory of my nephew Alfie who was born 12 weeks premature. Quite frankly, I cannot sing the praises of the nurses enough and not enough money can be raised for the resources they need My idea was to do something interactive, child-friendly and accessible: so as well as featuring some of my favorite poets, dancers and musicians, there will be craft and written word workshops and activities for children. And it wouldn’t be a charity event without a cake stall and a raffle! So please come down and unearth the wealth of local artistic talent on your doorstep and show your support for the people who work miracles in their everyday”.
Becky Banks can by found playing guitar and performing across Doncaster. She’s a #DonnyLegend #DonnyGirlBoss.
