She’Koyokh coming to Dorset


The Exchange in Sturminster Newton is excited to be sharing in a new partnership with Artsreach, Dorset’s touring arts charity, and The Mowlem Theatre in Swanage.
Artsreach is well known for bringing high quality shows to village halls across Dorset, and some of those performers have reputations or shows that deserve and sometimes need bigger venues – The Exchange makes it possible for such shows to come to North Dorset.
She’koyokh have been hugely popular performers for Artsreach in the past. They have toured the world, played famous European concert halls, selling out the Wigmore Hall in London in 2023, appearing at WOMAD and Glastonbury festivals and collaborating with The Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Aurora Orchestra.
Seven virtuoso musicians make up ‘Britains Best klezmer & Balkan music band’ (The Evening Standard). They are returning to Dorset to play the Mowlem Theatre and The Exchange, where they will be playing on 26th May. With a sumptuous mix of instruments, and vocals from acclaimed Istanbul-born Cigdem Aslan, expect a night of exhilarating, invigorating music.

Workshop opportunity
She’Koyokh are also offering a dance workshop led by members of the band, with live music, from 4 til 6pm, before the concert. This will include Balkan and Yiddish circle dances, as well as a few set dances. All ages and levels welcome, no partner required – booking is essential.On 26th May, one of ‘the finest and most entertaining British-based exponents of global music’ will be in Sturminster Newton for one night. See The Exchange website or call 01258 475317 to book tickets.
Artsreach workshops for children regularly sell out at The Exchange in the summer months, and the wonderful annual celebration of Sturminster’s William Barnes, involving local musicians, singers and readers, is making its home at The Exchange – another example of the partnership working between Artsreach and The Exchange.
