The 2023 show is Edinburgh Renaissance Band’s New Frontiers. With fifty successful Fringes behind us, we’re looking forward confidently to new journeys – to countries and continents we haven’t explored before, with wonderful music we haven’t performed. With our vast range of medieval and renaissance instruments we bring you early music from Poland, Bohemia, and Scandinavia as well as from parts of Europe we’ve often visited, before taking ship to Central America to discover the Spanish composers who worked there. A fascinating family-friendly programme by performers who are happy to chat about their instruments and music. Children specially welcome, and their tickets are free (but need to be booked).
