Trunch Concerts 2015 – Music in an historic Norfolk Church
SATURDAY 11th JULY 2015 at 7.30 pm ‘An Evening of English Nonsens’
Rachel Fryer (piano) returns with friends playing phonofiddles, saws, melodeons and more to reveal her lighter side with the best of English eclectic eccentricity…from the Kinks to Ketelby and a nod to 1970s hits of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.
Rachel Fryer and friends on Saturday, July 11th, bring us something completely different from the Brighton Festival, where they performed this same programme in May: “Celebrating English Eccentricity from Ketèlbey to the Kinks. Duck Soup are known for their unique take on English traditional folk music, making use of marimbas, melodeons, dobros and anything else they can lay their hands on. The Trio Buschellini play the finest in Edwardian and Victorian popular music for phonofiddles, musical saws and piano.
This very special concert includes solo sets from both groups, as well as riotous collaborations, and includes music by composers including Vivian Ellis, Edward Elgar, Queen Lili’uokalani and “Anon”. Let them transport you from the Village Green to a Persian Market, and back again.”
This is what the press has said of the programme: “Delightfully quirky” – The Guardian; “Splendidly ebullient…delicious fun” – Folk Roots; “Joyful.”
