This year’s music

June 6, 2024 Uncategorized 0

There is nothing more magical than enjoying a beautiful summer garden with fantastic live music as your soundtrack, and we are very privileged to have such a wonderful and varied selection this year. Huge thanks to Kathryn Nall, for once again organising such a great programme, and to all of the musicians for very kindly performing.

Here’s what’s on offer:

  • Hugh Boyd: explores the sounds of the archtop acoustic guitar, playing a mixture of early jazz, classical and ragtime.
  • Sara Morrison:
    • Clare House Clarinets – 4/5-piece clarinet choir, playing a variety of styles, including Classical, Latin, jazz, swing and pop.
    • Sax Quartet – playing predominantly swing, jazz, Latin and blues, with a smattering of musical theatre, pop and funk.
  • Clive and Louise (Pearce): Classical Guitar Duo from South Bucks. Their programme includes items in a variety of musical styles from Baroque to Classical music, also including some Spanish music and some popular contemporary items.
  • The Impingtones, Sue Leeway: A friendly community choir that meets once a week to experience the pleasure of singing together. They sing mostly pop, folk and musical scores and aim to be a fun choir for anyone with or without previous singing experience
  • The Klass String Quartet, Louise Gosling: An eclectic mix of classic, modern and traditional music from across the ages and the globe.
  • Recorder Music, Patricia Davies: Everything from Early Music to Jazz to popular music and songs from the shows.
  • Histon Brass Ensemble: An enthusiastic group of brass players with local connections! They play a wide variety of music ranging from baroque, through classical to traditional marches and contemporary music.

Finally, we have two additions, not listed in the programme:

  • Pete Bull (Violin) & Dan Ecclestone (Piano): with music from the great American Songbooks (garden #15).
  • A selection of music (drum, piano and guitar) from local music students, many of whom are students at the village primary and secondary schools (garden #4).

Consult your programme for the music locations. The timings of performances will be released a few days before the event, on our website and social media. On the day, we will also post them at the information hub on the green, and on our app.
