‘It’s like Eric Morecambe goes classical. Imagine JS Bach writing his latest masterpiece whilst supervising a creche of 21 children. Stephen Guy Daltry acts it out. This award-winning Film/TV composer takes you on a mirth-filled musical tour, part autobiographical, part concoction; it’s a comical mix of sketches, one liners, songs and anecdotes, laced with beautiful piano-playing, the odd tango and his own unique compositions.
A grand piano is the best, but a low digital piano is fine. Or Stephen can bring his own keyboard with amplifier. Also a CD/USB player for cer ... tain FX cues.
Stephen Guy Daltry, Actor, Composer, Pianist and Filmmaker, was born in Sawston, Cambridge. He is no relation to Roger and currently has no trout farms - although he has scored two award-winning films about fish, ‘The Lost World of Mr Hardy’ ( a ‘gorgeous musical score’ – director Ken Russell, The Times, Oct 2009) and the soon to be released BBC Scotland documentary ‘Of Fish or Foe’. Before training at the National Film School he tried various jobs, as actor, typist, lab aide at St Thomas’s, and as busker (on accordion, not piano). In his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fri
... nge show ‘Ludwig’s Van’ Stephen relates his passion for composing and the lives that composers lead. Stephen has composed and played on many scores for TV, including BBC2’s ‘The Hunt’ (Cultural Prix Italia) two documentaries on Princess Diana for ITV and, the Sundance Festival hit, 'The Moo Man’. Stephen’s stage musicals include the critically successful adaptation of ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’ with writer & dramaturg Maureen Thomas, ‘Seats in All Parts’ with writer/director Lesley Albiston, and the fantasia ‘Did You Dr Crippen?’ with playwright Brian McAvera.
Described by The Stage as a “A boisterous comedy talent” (The Stage) Stephen's first role was Chief Ant in the Insect Play at Caldew School, Dalston; he graduated to playing larger creatures with the Manchester Youth Theatre (‘Police Chief Tiger Brown’ in ‘The Threepenny Opera’ at the Library) and royal - his portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II at the Leicester Square Theatre in Justin Butcher's 'Prisoner of Windsor' was complimented in The Telegraph, Stage and What's On. He has played country bumpkins, pub landlords, shady businessmen and boatmen in his acting career to date, as well as a busker in his own Jacques Tati-inspired film ‘The Accordionist’ , and also played a bather in his film homage to Claude Debussy, (‘Debussy’ National Film School).
Stephen would also like to make clear that he is not and has never been Stephen Daldry, and has not directed any productions of Billy Elliott whatsoever.
