Red Priest are AMAZING! I saw them a couple of years ago and they are not to be missed. Stuffy classical music they are not
Red Priest’s sell-out concert in the last Festival left audiences literally stamping their feet for more, so the ensemble is back this year with their new show. Featuring the glorious music of Handel, Bach and Vivaldi, this extraordinary acoustic foursome communicates the essence of early and baroque music with an audacious energy and passion that dispels any notion that classical music is stuffy and boring. Described by music critics as ‘visionary and heretical’, ‘outrageous yet compulsive’, ‘wholly irreverent and highly enlightened’, ‘completely wild and deeply imaginative’, with a ‘red-hot wicked sense of humour’, Red Priest take a ‘break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music’ whilst retaining the absolute integrity of the music they play.
We're sitting in Row H and hoping to take over most of the row, so if you haven't got your ticket yet please get your skates on!
