Variegated Women

 

Frankie Armstrong, Laura Bradshaw, Ruth Bradshaw,

Pauline Down and Sarah Harman

 

Variegated Women is a feisty, folky, five-piece female voice and instrumental ensemble, with a passion for singing to promote change.

 

Between us, we have several centuries’ worth of singing experience and songs.   We are all professional singers in our own right who love the opportunity to come together to explore harmonies created in these islands and from around the world.   The emphasis is on women's songs and those speaking for peace and social justice, both old and new.   We can ring the changes from one voice to five - some of our repertoire is acapella and some with instrumentation that includes guitar, saxophone, flute, accordion, whistle and drums.  This means we can create a performance of great richness and variety, exploring different genres and textures.  Our hope is to communicate power, tenderness and fun involving the audience both as listeners and sometime joiners-in.

SATURDAY JUNE 14TH 7.30

                  FLEURS DE LYS

garden cafe restaurant lydbrook holiday gloucestershire

A Fleurs de Lys performance is a special mix of instrumental skill, exquisite vocal harmony and fascinating historical anecdote. Joyful, mesmeric dance music, played on a variety of instruments (including mediaeval fiddle, harp, hurdy-gurdy, English bagpipes, recorder and percussion) is off-set with poignant and ethereal songs of love and longing; devotion and duty; jealousy and rivalry and a little bit of triumphal pageantry.

The music and song was quite stunning”

A wonderful evening! Your voices blended beautifully with stunning harmonies and the playing just as amazing – thank you!”
