The Elephant & Castle,
Purcell's Polyphonic Party are Vicki Swan (nyckelharpas) Jonny Dyer (harpsichord, guitars) & John Dipper (viola d'amore). They offer a light-hearted programme of 17th. & 18th. Century music, seamlessly blending Classical/Baroque styles with English & Swedish folk traditions.
The workshop will focus on that bridge between classical & folk: helping classical musicians to access folk music, and enabling folk musicians to find new harmonies & accompaniments by exploring the structures of Baroque polyphony.
Some music will be sent in advance.
