The Carnival Band - A Carnival Calendar

Sat 29th June 2019
St Saviour's Church, Retford, DN22 6TN
From the riotous pre-Lent carnivals of medieval Europe to the midwinter revelry of the Lord of Misrule, The Carnival Band take us through the year, imaginatively weaving folk, historical and contemporary strands from England and abroad into a rich tapestry of seasonal celebration. The Carnival Band play an extraordinary range of instruments, including medieval shawm, renaissance cittern, Flemish bagpipes, fiddle, bass and add rich vocal harmony. Their unique blend of folk, world, classical and contemporary influences defies definition. Renowned for their recordings and concerts with Maddy Prior, they are admired for their consummate musicianship and loved for their humour and rapport with the audience.
