Join Sinfonia Viva for a trip across the globe and experience the vast influence and reach of folk music throughout history.
Featuring shanties, Slavonic dances, Romanian folk, miniatures from Devon and Norfolk, as well as extracts from Paul Patterson’s Westerly Winds, this will be a concert for folk enthusiasts and general music lovers alike!
Played beautifully by Sinfonia Viva’s wind quintet, the show will take place in the epic and historic surroundings of the Derby Cathedral, the perfect place for live music. Feel yourself being drawn in, as notes linger in the building’s cavernous walls and swirl gracefully around you, making this a truly inspirational and unforgettable experience.
Part of Derby Folk Festival, this concert is free for Derby Folk Festival wristband holders.
