News in for June:
The Concert Spot
The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments has just recorded their first CD, 'The Ministry of Angels'. The nyckelharpa features on a lot of the tracks, including a beautiful newly composed song, an arrangement of Corelli's, Folli,a some raucous representations of Playford Tunes and ancient songs long associated with Angels. There's also hurdy gurdy, guitars, harps (bray, celtic and baroque), a plethora of peculiar bass instruments, percussion and the beautiful voice of Clara Sanabras. We recorded in a peaceful, resonant (but not too resonant) church in Essex, aiming for the most natural sonic representation of our instruments. More details, plus an invitation to subscribe to the CD can be found on our website www.strangeandancientinstruments.com. Next concert : Holmfirth Festival, 18th of June, 2012.
A come and try it workshop run by Vicki in Ipswich, Suffolk on Saturday 16th June at the Steamboat Folk Weekend, 18:45 - 19:30. Visit the website for more details.
