Early music iconoclast Philip Pickett joins forces with folk legend Richard Thompson in a programme of spicy ballads, folk songs and dances from Shakespeare's London. With the internationally-renowned Musicians of the Globe they explore an eclectic mix of Elizabethan popular music from London's taverns, streets, coffee houses and private rooms, with a host of unusual instruments including violin, rebec, recorder, cittern, bandora, early guitar, viol and lute.

Cadogan Hall in London on December 6 2010 - should be excellent

Sounds excellent. I have the CD they did together some years ago called "The Bones Of All Men" - all Tudor and Jacobean music arranged by Pickett - and it's highly recommended.

Let's hope it's a rip-roaring standing-room-only success and that encourages them to turn it into a bit of a tour.

+1 for 'The Bones Of All Men' CD, lovely stuff.

I'm still waiting to find out how PP is an early music iconoclast.

Well, quite.

Philip Pickett is, I'd guess, about 10 years older than me: an age-gap that means that he has been an established upholder of Early Music practice for as long as I have known anything about it. 'Iconoclast' would hardly be le mot juste, when I recall all the New London Consort concerts I attended in the 1980s....

I assumed the tag was just one more manifestation of the old debate about historically certifiable 'authenticity' versus the more subjective 'historically informed performance', until I tried a quick Google and found umpteen entries pairing his name with that word. I still don't think it's the right word, mind, merely the current vogue among concert blurb-writers* .

[* speaking of whom, the National Theatre's lot describe the New Scorpion Band as a 'folk ethnic combo of five'. Would that tempt you to attend?!]

There are plenty of accurate descriptions of Philip Pickett's performance style that spring to my mind, and doubtless to yours too. Speaking for myself, sticking circus performers on to a concert stage may be many things – and good or bad, depending on whether the experiment works in context – but iconoclastic? Not really.

Sounds like a great evening but unfortunately clashes with Belshazzar's Feast at the Herga folk club....
