Chipping Sodbury Music Society is organising an evening of medieval, folk and world music celebrating the 800th anniversary of the granting of the Market Charter to the town as part of this year's Chipping Sodbury Festival. This will be an exciting event featuring internationally acclaimed music group Joglaresa.
Joglaresa delighted their audience at the Town Hall last December with their festive "Make We Mirth" programme and the Society is bringing them back to St John’s Church, Wickwar Road on Sunday 10 June at 7.00 pm (doors 6.15 pm).
Director of Joglaresa, Belinda Sykes - voice, bagpipes will be joined by Cerian Holland - voice, harp, May Robertson - fidel, voice, Elisabeth Flett - fidel, voice, Elsa Bradley - percussion, dulcimer and Guy Schalom - percussion, voice.
You can look forward to hearing English, Spanish and French music from the 11th to 14th centuries – just the right period to evoke the atmosphere of Chipping Sodbury during that period of history. Joglaresa will bring with them a huge array of instruments and their beautiful voices to provide you with a memorable evening. Don’t miss their rendition of “The Killer Rabbit”!
Joglaresa will be performing some of the songs from their Nuns & Roses CD and describe them as:
"Joglaresa 'bringing anarchy and sensuality back into medieval music' (because life can be just as low in Latin...).
Ballads of illicit love and villainous seducers, subversive medieval re-workings of hymns by errant monks, and lots of noses thumbed at authority - all delivered with Joglaresa's inimitable energy, irrepressible cheeriness, rebellion and, above all, FUN! "
