Join us at Cliffe Castle Museum for a FREE performance by Trouvere Medieval Minstrels on the 17th May 2020
We have been playing music together for more than ten years, and our particular love is for the music of the high middle ages - the time of the crusades and of the arts of courtly love. We enjoy rediscovering, recreating and re-interpreting the magnificent music of these times, based on thorough historical research alongside our musical experience and understanding. The rich interweaving of strings is perhaps our signature sound, played on the gittern and harp. But we have an amazing array of instruments and also love to combine flutes and harp, bagpipe and hurdy-gurdy, trumpet and shawm ...We like to give a medieval context to our performances and to that end we often perform in authentic clothes of the period - another of Gill’s enthusiasms
Admission is free and there is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy.
Seating is limited and we do advise arriving early to ensure a seat if you require one. You can also enjoy the music from the Balcony area of the Bracewell Smith Hall, however that is standing space only
If you would like to perform at one of our Music at the Museum events, please call us on 01535 618231
Donation boxes can be found throughout the museum and your donations are always welcomed and appreciated.
