Barokksolistene: The Alehouse Session

10 Jun 2017 Festivals 8pm (doors open 7.15pm)
Tickets: £15


In the 1650s, when many English theatres closed under Puritan rule, musicians moved to the alehouses: these would host intimate concerts for an enthusiastic audience, thirsty for entertainment and ale. Acclaimed Baroque ensemble Barokksolistene‘s Alehouse Sessions transform Salisbury’s Arts Centre into one of these so-called Musick-Houses, with folk songs of the time featuring alongside music by Purcell and others. Expect folky, seductive and sparkling music, accompanied by anecdotes, humour and – of course – beer!
