NEW SCORPION BAND

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 A programme devoted to the supernatural, the strange, the spinechilling and the inexplicable. Bringing together the band’s usual mix of traditional songs and ballads, instrumental tunes, poems, stories and folk drama, ‘Cold blows the Wind’ is a beguiling and unsettling excursion into unseen and imagined worlds as depicted through centuries of song and legend in the misty isles of Britain. A slightly lighter take on supernatural themes comes from the world of the Victorian Music Hall, with the ghostly tale of Benjamin Binns, whose posthumous deeds are celebrated in a very singable chorus. As always, the New Scorpion Band performs with their remarkable array of traditional and historical instruments, and sing together with their usual rich harmonies.
