Pastance Christmas concert

Pastance present a unique lineup of renaissance and medieval instruments including harp, lute, fiddle, recorders and shawm, repertoire delivered with shimmering vocal harmonies and a wholesome love of the material, has enchanted audiences for many years.

December 3 wlll be a very special concert to get you into the Christmas spirit with lots of opportunity for audience participation in our ‘choir for the night’, as well as Pastance’s performance. They will introduce some older and less well known carols, revive your memory of some of the favourite golden oldies, and have you all singing like angels before the night is out. This is a rare chance to hear Pastance performing at a folk venue.

Pastance was formed 17 years ago by multi-instrumentalist Alex Cronin. With his wife, singer and woodwind player Megan Cronin, Alex has been the backbone of this hardworking, sought-after group. Christine Wheeler joined them a year ago. On December 3 you will hear arrangements of Anglo/Celtic, early European and original music, as well as some Medieval, Renaissance and traditional carols for a stylish and fun start to the Christmas season.
