Strangers' Hall - 21st April 2024

Slideshow accompaniment
Earl of Oxford's Marche by William Byrd
arranged by Matt Kingston, adapted by Paul Barrett

Scottish Schottis by Olle Moraeus (played by one of our trios)

Goddesses from Playford

As our contribution to World Concertina Day, we spent the afternoon playing at Strangers' Hall in Norwich. The Undercroft, which is the earliest part of the hall, dating from around 1320, was the location for our main performance. We played a variety of tunes, including some early music and tunes from the Playford collection. At one time the hall was home to a dancing master, so this may not have been the first time these tunes had been heard within its walls. Some of our members also performed solos, duets and trios in the Great Hall which dates from the 15th century.

Turn on (and off) each player in turn to hear some of the tunes we played.
