The Edinburgh Renaissance Band are joined by Polyhymnia Dancers in the ever-popular Viol Rackett Show, our best-loved programme of music, song and dance from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. The award-winning troupe of twelve musicians show off a large range of period instruments, including shawms, cornetti, sackbuts, nakers, crumhorms, viols, fiddles, crumhorns, gemshorns, bells, bagpipes, racketts and a serpent, and are happy to chat with you about them. The show is fronted by Musical Director Murray Campbell, whose lively presentation provides a delightful show, suitable for all ages. Children are specially welcome.
