Come celebrate the beauty of the season with music from centuries gone by.
Banquo Folk Ensemble has been performing in and around Victoria, BC since 1998. Their music is from the written and oral traditions covering more than eight centuries, performed with voice and our collection of instruments that includes recorders, hurdy gurdies, citterns, shawms, bagpipes, a battery of percussion instruments and more. Through the development of their own arrangements and interpretations of existing materials, they attempt to bridge the gap between “art” music and the folk tradition, always bearing in mind the goal of minstrels throughout the centuries to please and entertain their audiences.
This concert will feature lots of hurdy gurdy, and four different kinds of bagpipes including Banquo’s new Swedish traditional pipes. Don’t miss the Instrument Petting Zoo following the concert!
