The latest show from acclaimed musicians, Chris Green and Sophie Matthews, takes in 600 years of musical history in just 90 minutes! Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century (and incorporating everything in between!) this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-top tour of Western musical history.
Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!), Chris and Sophie paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective, and the courtly and the commonplace.
Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, rauschpfeife and vihuela, 'A Brief History of Music' takes you on a musical journey from which you won't want to return!
Dates: Wednesday 8th - Friday 10th May 2019
Tickets: £17 adult / £15 concession (under 16s, over 65s, disabled, Friends of The Rose Playhouse)
