Following a sell-out at SJE Christmas 2014, Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band return with their Christmas show 'Carols and Capers'.
See them put their unique stamp on a range of familiar (and not-so-familiar) festive material, whilst also exploring some new and exotic directions. Together they will mix renaissance, modern and ethnic instruments with a refreshing cavalier attitude and plenty of humour. A perfect way to start the Christmas celebrations.

"I love working with the chaps," Maddy muses, "it's just so different and they're so off the wall. Coming from a folk background I can relate to a lot of their dances and early music, but anything less like serious academic concerts you can't imagine. When we go out at Christmas, it's all streamers, balloons and lunacy."
