THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR
The Wheel of the Year is a truly fabulous and unique celebration of the annual cycle. It takes you on a passionate and exciting journey through the passages of history, whilst inviting you to experience the many magical festivals and traditions of the passing seasons.
The superb lyrics of Rose Blakeley are highly descriptive and are brought to life by the powerful and atmospheric music of Garry Blakeley (Feast of Fiddles). His stunning compositions are a beautiful combination of folk rock arrangements, slow airs and driving traditional tunes, which weave in and out of the rich, evocative narration of selected poetry and stories by Jane Downes (The Catsfield Steamers).
The Wheel of the Year also features some of the highlights of The Ceremony of May our successful and well-loved tribute to May Day and the famous Jack-in-the-Green.
This is an incredible production, which will totally enthral you and steal you away to a place of enchantment and imagination!
COME AND EXPERIENCE THE FEAST OF FIDDLES SHOW - you will not regret it !
Feast of Fiddles is a musical entertainment like no other – six of the UK’s finest fiddle players in a band of 11 which includes Dave Mattacks – the grandfather of folk rock drumming. Peter Knight of Steeleye Span, Chris Leslie of Fairport Convention, Brian McNeill, Ian Cutler, Tom Leary and Garry Blakeley bring their own individual styles together to visit many musical genres in a show that has a wide dynamic range and will have you dancing in the aisles and perhaps even shedding a tear. The 2013 tour is the band’s 20th annual outing and the critical acclaim gets louder every year. Bring even your sceptical friends, they won’t be disappointed.
“Absolutely awesome!” – Sue Marchant, BBC East
“Feast of Fiddles is far more than half-a-dozen of
Britain’s most talented exponents of the instrument.
It’s a joyous two hours of excellence and
exuberance.” Get Rhythm
“Your imaginative programme was riveting from start to finish. I relished the brilliance of tone colours in all sections; the violins soaring away, like the spring in the bow of an arrow, on an effortless flight path in perfect unison – like the first violins of a very great symphony orchestra – yet better, because of your innate musicianship, conductor-less craft, rhythm and palpable love of the many genres of music making you had to offer. You are seriously all great musicians.”
David Fanshawe – African Sanctus
