FESTIVAL favourites The Destroyers will be playing their own take on Balkan and Klezmer music at Wilton's Music Hall tomorrow (Friday).

The 15-piece's massed ranks of fiddles, brass and vocals have seen the band play at Glastonbury, Bestival, the Larmer Tree festival and at the Barbican and tomorrow's performance will be their third visit to Wiltons for their own dance party extravaganza.

This year The Destroyers are returning to Glastonbury on the Avalon Stage, making their debut appearance at Sidmouth Folk festival and mixing their first studio album which will be released this autumn.

Bev Lee Harling's love of music and cooking combines in the Kitchen Sink Band at 8.45pm when chopping boards, cheese graters, glass orchestras, colanders and a dog bowl will be combined with music boxes, a musical saw and a 1950's typewriter to create a musical, organic experience.

Bev has recently had a number one in the Classical Chart with the Mediaeval Baebes and also performs regularly with Amsterdam Burlesque star Natsumi Scarlett.

Gypsy swingers Trio Manouche will be kicking off the dance party at 7.45pm with their mix of traditional classics from the swing era and upbeat, quirky original compositions.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £12.50 from www.wiltons.org.uk or 020 7702 2789.
