Extraordinary acoustic foursome come to Bedales

Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music critics as ‘visionary and heretical’, ‘outrageous yet compulsive’, ‘wholly irreverent and highly enlightened’, ‘completely wild and deeply imaginative’, with a ‘red-hot wicked sense of humour’ and a ‘break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music’. They bring ‘Carnival of the Seasons’ to Bedales on 4June, when the four concertos of Vivaldi’s ever-popular classic are interspersed with seasonal works by Biber, Corelli, Purcell and Van Eyck. Tickets £14/£12 conc. from tickets@bedales.org.uk or 01730 711511.
