Event description

Description

Barry Coope, Lester Simpson, Jo Freya and Fi Fraser put on a festive feast to send you in to Christmas with a feel good factor. With their 'Sublime singing, supremely joyful, glorious sound' (Michael Morpergo) you will hear a mix of old and new. With a firm foundation of traditional polyphonic Yorkshire and Derbyshire carols this show is augmented by spicy instrumentals showing the link between carols and dance and accompanied song and also featuring the best of less traditional repertoire.

Many of these polyphonic carols have not been heard by the wider population - one of the 20 versions of While Shepherds Watched known to the group and one to be sung on the night, was written by Darwen weaver, Edward Harwood (1707 - 1787).

To place these carols in a complimentary context it made sense to have some joyful instrumentals as many carol tunes were used for dancing. As always the show is enhanced by humour with some songs that illustrate other views on Christmas.

So hark hark..here they come.
