Music through the ages in duo’s show

A Brief History Of Music is the name of a Live And Local show at Holloway’s Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall, on Thursday, May 7, at 7.30pm.

It is to be performed by the talented duo Blast from the Past.

These are two skilled historical music performers who bring to life half a millennium of music with warmth and wit.

Between them, Chris and Sophie play over 30 instruments, and fit in numerous costume changes to deliver 600 years of music in a mere 90 minutes.

The show is fast and fun with long-forgotten tunes sitting alongside old favourites.

During the show you will be able to enjoy the raucous mixing with the courtly and sublime, and stately medieval music leaning up against flowery Victoriana.

Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That and the stage is set for a night of great good humour where you’ll learn something without even realising it.

A Brief History Of Music is suitable for those audience members who are aged eight and over.

Tickets and further information for A Brief History Of Music are available by calling Dave on 01773 856545.
