    London Calling!


    Ascension Church, Plumstead, SE18 2SG

    As part of the Plumstead Peculiars concert series we present:

    A musical snapshot from London's proud multicultural history.

    Emily Baines - Recorders/Bagpipes
    Arngeir Hauksson - Theorbo/Baroque Guitar/Cittern

    Hear music from the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries by English composers influenced by their European colleagues, and by European musicians inspired by music from across the newly United Kingdom.

    During this period London became a melting pot for a huge number of musical styles as artists from across Europe flocked to be part of its buzzing cultural scene. Folk music from across the British Isles influenced composers from Italy, France and Germany who in turn brought their own homegrown styles to the musical feast.

    Featuring music by Locke, Purcell, Handel, Matteis, Geminiani, and others - performed on Recorders, Guitars, Theorbo, Cittern Bagpipes and Percussion.
