East Cork Early Music Festival presents "The Gregory Walkers" A Family Concert
Please note that this show is a Matinée show, it starts at 3pm on October 12th
This fun family matinee takes you behind the scenes of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre as four motley musicians prepare for a performance. Join this acclaimed Irish group as they play a Shakespearean 'Top 20' on period instruments.
A concert by the Dublin-based Gregory Walkers emphasises communication and spontaneity, delighting audiences of all ages with the foot-tapping dynamism of their vintage repertoire.
A 'Gregory' was the name of a wig worn in the 16th century, said to have been invented by a barber named Gregory. A lute, viol, or fiddle was part of the furniture of a barber's shop in the era and his customers, while waiting for a hair cut or a minor operation, would amuse themselves on the instruments provided.
The Gregory Walkers comprises some of Ireland's most respected musicians. They are experienced in delivering performances suitable for the whole family and have done so for Ardee Baroque Festival, Kilkenny Arts Festival, Music Generation, The ARK Children's Cultural Centre, National Museum of Ireland and others.
The Gregory Walkers are Laoise O'Brien (recorder); Malachy Robinson (vilone); Eamon Sweeney (guitar); and Francesco Turrsi (percussion).
