Purcell and a Pint is back in Cambridge with a new programme! Join Eboracum for an evening of rowdy drinking songs, popular folk tunes and more!

Purcell and a pint will transport you back to the alehouses of 17th century England. Taverns were raucous surroundings and overflowed with music, alcohol, sex, gossip, fights, fumes, shouting, singing, laughing, dancing…. Our performance won’t have all of those!

We’ll be performing a mixture of instrumental tunes and songs by Purcell and lots of his contemporaries to create our own 17th century pub gig. Audience participation is a must! This is a new programme, so if you’ve been before, there will be lots of new tunes but some of our old favourites will remain.

Beer collaboration to be announced. Non-alcoholic refreshments also available.

 

Featuring:

John Holland Avery – Baritone

Miriam Monaghan – Recorders

Miri Nohl – Cello/Viol

Laurence Lyndon Jones – Harpsichord

Chris Parsons – Trumpet and Cajon
