Vivien Ellis folksinger
Dafydd Wyn Phillips historian
Explore the streets and open spaces surrounding our Old Street venue, LSO St Luke’s, in a virtual tour lent musical colour by some of the popular ballads of years gone by. While Dafydd paints a picture of the local history and characters of this part of London, Vivien sings ‘broadside ballads’ specially selected to reflect the history of Clerkenwell, and invites viewers to sing along!
Imagine if Vivaldi was a folk-fiddler, Purcell a protest-singer, or Bach a techno-geek ... Baroque at the Edge invites leading musicians from all genres to take the music of the Baroque and see where it leads them.
No rules, no boundaries – just Baroque music set loose.
