We are very excited as this will be our first ever tour!

Meanwhile some of us have had a busy summer. In July Hazel, Sarah and Emily were lucky enough to be involved in a Medieval and Renaissance project at Cecil Sharp House. This was an ‘EFDSS Artist in Residence’ scheme generously supported by the English Folk Song and Dance Society. We had a lovely week and the final concert went very well. (Photographs EFDSS)

After that Emily had some gigs with the Dufay Collective, followed by a week with Sarah participating in the City Musick Course at Dartington International Summer School.

Hope to see some of you at our September gigs,


In the last few months we’ve had a few gigs around London. These included the National Theatre foyer where, first the first time, we performed with mics! In July we played at the medieval Harvington Hall, as part of their music festival. It was a lovely evening with a friendly audience.

Coming up we have our September tour of Devon and Hampshire....with one gig in Scotland! See our gig list for more details!
