East Midlands early music

Postby Sir Jarvis Phelps » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:45 pm

I want to see some more displays of early music and dance - medieval and Tudor - can anyone please recommend any groups, or sites to check for performances in the East Midlands?

Cheers 8-)

I'd really recommend keeping an eye & ear out for Richard and Elizabeth York, http://www.richard-york.co.uk , as I type his events diary for 2010 is not yet up, but usually ends up with various events in the East Midlands as that's where he's based. Richard performs medieval, Tudor and later periods too and on a wide range of instruments from bagpipes & shawm to hurdy gurdy & harp. His shows also tend to include some stories about musicians and often chances to join in on percussion if you feel inclined.
