A Brief History of Music

About

Green Matthews presents

Whizz through 600 years of musical history in 90 minutes!

Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century, this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history. Featuring long forgotten songs, tunes, plus a few jokes; this show paints a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.

The show combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and bombast of Victoriana. Add to that the wit of Blackadder and 1066 And All That and the stage is set for a veritable musical feast! Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as virginal, rauschpfeife and lute (and that's just the first 100 years!) 'A Brief History of Music' uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from which you won't want to return!

Age guidance: Not suitable for children under the age of 5.
