Nectarion play music from Crete and the Eastern Mediterranean. Their performance will include traditional couplets and accompanying music of the masterpiece of Cretan literature, Erotokritos.
This is a rare opportunity to hear a unique line up of instruments, including Cretan lyra, cello, mandolin, saz, laouto, percussion, and the only tarhu in the UK. The band fuses the robust dance rhythms of Crete with the ethereal sound of the tarhu and the mesmerising sound of the lyra, topped by lyrical and sparkling vocals.
Saturday 3 May, 2pm at Longbridge Deverill Village Hall
Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available before the performance
