MUSIC MEN ... Worbey and Farrell play The Customs House tomorrow.

A WORLD-renowned piano-playing duo are heading for a South Tyneside theatre.

Worbey and Farrell will be tickling the ivories at The Customs House, in South Shields, tomorrow.

The Mill Dam venue will play host to the unique musical pair on their tour, Deviation with the Piano.

Known for pushing boundaries of the instrument to complement every style, from classical to popular and contemporary music, Steven Worbey and Kevin Farrell are thought of as one of the world’s most entertaining and unique piano acts.

Ray Spencer, executive director of The Customs House, said: “This is an experience not to be missed.

“The duo are known for putting on a show full of sensational music and humour, which will have you laughing along and tapping your foot.”

Their instrument can imitate the tones of a Spanish guitar, resound with their very own Paganini Variations or pulsate with the passions of the masters of jazz.

They perform everything from Rachmaninov’s 18th Variation to Saint-Saëns’s Carnival of the Animals, complete with their own verse.

The UK tour follows a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last summer. Customs House marketing and programming co-ordinator, Ali Brown, said: “Prepare to be moved, excited and amazed.

“But above all, prepare to laugh with joy at the sheer ingenuity and style of these two masters of musical mayhem.”

Tickets for the 7.45pm show cost £14, with a £13 concession.
