Traditional folk tunes have long been passed down through family generations…

Learned by ear and developed each time the music reached new people, folk music is loved for its ability to tell the stories of the people who partake in its tradition.

It’s no surprise that the composers in this concert felt compelled to travel the world to forge their own interpretations of the music they heard on their adventures, capturing the unique soundscape of each community, and honouring the centuries of folk tradition.

In this concert, we’ll whisk you away to the different countries that influenced these compositions, complete with short insights about the stories that inspired the music.

We are working with Create Music in East Sussex to deliver education projects in the surrounding area. Students from Create Music will join us to perform side-by-side with the players for several pieces in this concert.
