Vicki Swan & Jonny effortlessly blend traditional and historical material with contemporary sounds. Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.
Out of this combination they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints.
Be entranced by the haunting nyckelharpa, amazed at the cow horn (one of the worlds earliest communication devices) and meet some of the bagpipes that didn’t come from Scotland.
Today’s programme will include traditional songs, tunes and stories from the British Isles and Sweden with contemporary material and the occasional moments of Baroque and Early Classical music.
Free. Everyone welcome. Watch this concert here
