Rachel Podger - Gramaphone Artist of the Year 2018 has established herself as a leading interpreter of the Barque and Classical periods, described by The Times as “the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin”. In October 2015 Rachel was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize. She has paid two visits to Raynham accompanied by Maggie Cole on harpsichord and fortepiano. She is coming in June with her regular harpsichord partner Marcin.
