The Carnival Band: A Carnival of Carols


Seasonal music from one of the UK’s best-loved earlymusic/folk bands. From Medieval England to ‘le jazz cool’ via Latin rhythms and Cajun beats, The Carnival Band blend the spirit of Christmas with the spirit of celebration the world over to create a delicious Yuletide cocktail. These four musical explorers, well-known for their recordings with Maddy Prior, perform here in their own right playing bagpipes, shawms, cittern, fiddle, guitar, bass and more, while delighting with rich vocal harmony. Their music includes traditional carols such as I Saw Three Ships and The Boar's Head and new compositions ranging from the reflective (Bright Evening Star) to the comic (The Lighthouse Keeper's Christmas). The perfect start to the festive season. Suitable for all ages over 7.

Duration: 2 hours with interval
