THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2007 A glittering musical celebration of Midwinter and the Christmas season, performed by the New Scorpion Band. Led by Tim Laycock, the five members of the band specialise in the subtle use of a huge range of instruments, alongside stunning vocal harmonies. ‘The Holly & the Ivy’ brings together another brimming cornucopia of early and traditional seasonal songs (including one or two old favourites), carols and Yuletide dance music, played on over 25 historical and folk instruments. The music is linked by readings and poems from Thomas Hardy, William Barnes, Flora Thompson and Dylan Thomas, not forgetting an appearance from the New Scorpion Band Christmas Mummers.... The performance will finish at approximately 9.20pm.
