Purcell's Polyphonic Party

The Concert

You are cordially invited to a party at the house of Henry Purcell in the year of our Lord 1686. R.S.V.P.

Find out what would happens when some of his more distant friends from rural Sweden and beyond gate-crash with their instruments…

A light hearted programme of music seamlessly blended folk with baroque, Swedish with British and more. Prepare for a humorous fusion featuring the spinet, nyckelharpa, viola d'amore (and a light sprinkling of accordion, gandola and flageolet). Featuring a range of instruments, songs and stories let yourself be transported back to the year 1686...

The stage show is equally home from a folk club, the classical lunchtime concert series, village halls or theatres.
