Nine Daies Wonder a Spitalfields Music Event

blogpic_round_logo_75London – Dances, songs and instrumental music from the Elizabethan court, towns and countryside. Will Kemp was a leading actor in Shakespeare’s company, and a shameless self-publicist. In 1600 he danced his way from London to Norwich in nine days, entertaining crowds along the way and reaching all members of Elizabethan society. The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments breathes new life into this peculiar event, bringing to life the energy of Elizabethan music with wild country dances, intimate songs and refined instrumental music to delight and amuse.

Post-concert Q&A • Join Clare Salaman and members of the ensemble to find out more about the performance and the strange and ancient instruments. Supported by Aldeburgh Music, Arts Council England, The Golsoncott Foundation, The Skinners’ Company Lady Neville Charity. Running time: 2hr, including a 20min interval (excluding post-concert Q&A). Thanks to Spitalfields Music for this news release
