1st June, 7.30pm: Dowland Works
With Emma Kirby

Worcester Guildhall

We will be absolutely delighted to welcome Emma Kirkby with Dowland Works to our festival – Dowland Works is “a sort of club for young performers and seasoned specialists to explore together the rich heritage of lute song left to us by Dowland and others.”

The Consent of Speaking Harmony is the title of their programme, for voices, viola da gamba and lute (played by Sam Brown, who performed twice for us at the Commandery in 2018 as part of Kant’u).

2nd June, 3pm: Emily Askew Band

Old St Martin’s Church, Worcester

Something a little bit different – The Emily Askew Band brings together an adventurous collective of well-renowned musicians, breaking boundaries with their creative contemporary folk and early music. Their lively performances excite and captivate audiences with their wild dance tunes, haunting vocal harmonies and beautiful lyrical melodies.

The use of early instruments including the vielle, viola d’amore, bagpipes, shawm, frame drums, medieval bells and recorders, with modern folk instruments such as the guitar, violin, cajon and electronics, creates an innovative musical experience unlike any other bands on the folk scene today.
