The Society of Strange & Ancient Instruments
The concert will finish at approximately 9.20pm In 1600 Will Kemp - actor, shameless self-publicist and member of Shakespeare's company - danced his way from London to Norwich in nine days. This concert celebrates Kemp's fabulous journey in 'Nine Daies Wonder', with raucous dance tunes and more refined music of the Elizabethan age. Kemp was renowned for his jigs, which were light-hearted entertainments. In keeping with his spirit, the Society has commissioned a brand new 21st century Elizabethan jig from writer and actor Simon Paisley Day for this evening's programme. Featuring an array of early instruments including hurdy-gurdy, hardanger fiddle, bass viol, crumhorn and shawm, thisconcert promises to be a wonderfully entertaining evening. "...one of our finest exponents of early music. They enchant and amaze in equal measure" - The Musician
