Wowee The Letter is lucky to be joining the glorious Orbweavers for this year’s Brunswick Music Festival. The Orbweavers are just so mind-blowingly lovely and their music makes me love our world more and more.
After a truly epic Tasmanian adventure in February, involving a boat and a chamber organ and a dodgy car battery, I’ll be taking the plane to Tassie this March for the awesome 10 Days on the Island Festival. Come and enjoy a glass or two of vino and listen to Van Diemen’s Band playing the glorious music of Händel!
For my second performance at the Castlemaine State Festival, Harken Well will be presenting a programme of Germanic music from the 17th Century in the Abendmusik tradition. We’ll be joined by all-star continuo section Donald Nicolson (harpsichord) and Nick Pollock (theorbo), in the beautiful Castlemaine Town Hall!
In my final outing at the Castlemaine State Festival, Harken Well will be premiering our Music & Murder programme featuring music written by terrible people. This concert will be presented in two parts: half Renaissance consort and half Baroque trio sonatas.
Harken Well are joined by two very special multi-instrument-wielding guests, John Weretka on harpsichord, tenor viol and voice and Lucy Price on baroque ‘cello and bass viol.
How exciting to be joining my highly esteemed duo partner, the very excellent Ann Morgan, for a programme celebrating fantastical things from the early baroque. Ann and I have been rehearsing up a storm in the country and there are two more duos on the programme: Erkki Veltheim and Anthony Pateras, and Erkki and Simone de Haan, so you should definitely come along.
