Description

The Songs of the Troubadours

To celebrate the European Day of Early Music 2018 we are pleased to welcome Jon Erik Schelander who will perform 'The Songs of the Troubadours'!


Who Were The Troubadours?

The Troubadours were songwriters who composed and performed between the 12th and 13th centuries in what is now the South of France. They created a new poetry in their songs, wildly inventive in form, all performed with beautiful melodies.


Who is Jon Erik Schelander?

John Erik Scelander started singing the songs of the Troubadours 25 years ago in the Languedoc, France where Occitan, the language of the Troubadours, is still spoken. He performs these songs with the intensity that they demand and sets the songs in their historical context with vivid storytelling, and breathes life into them with his rich voice.

His work in medieval music has included publishing two Troubadour songbooks, translations of Troubadour texts and the making of musical instruments. He has performed Troubadour programs for universities, early music groups, arts centres, folk festivals, and the Edinburgh Fringe as well as on the radio in France and England. We are delighted to welcome him to Mill Hill Unitarian Chapel for what promises to be a very special performance.


FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Mill Hill Unitarian Chapel is situated at the heart of Leeds City Centre and is thus best accessed though public transport. We also encourage the use of public transport for environmental reasons.

Leeds Train Station is located only a few minutes’ walk away at most. There are also several bus stops located on or around City Square, Park Row, and Boar Lane which are only a moments’ walk away from the Chapel.

There is a limited amount of parking available at the Chapel however it is not easily accessible due to the one-way system enforced on the surrounding streets. If you require onsite parking than it is best to contact us in advance so we can offer directions and make sure the carpark is open with enough spaces available.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can email Robin Hanford, our IT and Outreach Worker at: robin@millhillchapel.org or alternatively you may drop us a direct message on Facebook or Twitter.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You can either bring your printed ticket or use the Eventbrite mobile app. Alternatively you may also purchase tickets on the door.
