In another unique Baroque at the Edge collaboration, leading classical and folk musicians combine styles and skills in an uplifting celebration of the major role folk song and dance has played in European art music, from the Celtic fringe to the French court.
‘[Lucy Crowe] A singer blessed with look-at-me-and-listen charisma.’ - The Sunday Times
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.
