Medieval Music in York

Postby saracen » Wed May 02, 2007 1:37 pm

Trouvere are doing a series of concerts this year at Barley Hall - in fact, the concerts are fundraisers for the Barley Hall Trust, which is another good reason for coming along!
The concerts are at 7pm on the second Thursday of each month from now to December, so the first one is on Thursday 10th May. Each concert will have a different theme and the May concert is all English music, from 12th - 16th centuries; the next one on 14th June will be Music of the Trouveres and Troubadours.
Line-up for the various concerts will vary, but will cover a fair selection from flute, lute, citole, harp, bagpipes, fiddle, rebec, recorders and percussion. Each show also features a story, and there are also refreshments (fruit wines, ales and juices) from the bar; the evenings are also a chance to explore Barley Hall. The concerts actually take place in the candlelit Great Hall.
Tickets cost £7 / £5 (students, seniors, under 16s) and are available from Trouvere - check out the website or pm me. Please pass on the information to anyone visiting York - it does make for a really nice and unusual evening out.
