Songs of Pilgrims and Travellers With Trio Old and New

A program about where life is headed, what one leaves behind, what the heart yearns for, and what discoveries might lie ahead. Renaissance songs about the quest for love, thirteenth-century pilgrim cantigas, baroque gypsy songs, romantic dreams of escape, ghostly late romantic songs, Australian and Irish 
folksongs, and music of contemporary composers, to take you on a spellbinding musical journey. 

Music by John Dowland, Fanny Mendelssohn and her brother Felix, Henry Purcell, Barbara Strozzi, Gustav Holst, Gabriel Faure, and Aussie composers Judith Clingan and Colin Brumby and more, all artfully arranged for voice, viola da gamba and recorder. By the team that brought you the 2021 Fringe sell-out show Shakespeare Now and Then – Gillian Dooley, Graham Strahle and Garth Rowe: Trio Old and New.
