The Night Watch (early music duo) have 4 forthcoming public events, 3 of which are our special programme for winter, Drive the Cold Winter Away. It would be grand to see you there. Please, 'Catters, do come and say 'hello'. As always, in the interval we'll be around to meet the audience to discuss our period instruments and the music we play.
"a galaxy of string and wind instruments … Dexterity, subtlety, precise timing and a display of flying fingers … plenty of fine singing. The audience just clamoured for more." ~ Folk West
