The Viol Racket Show
The music and instruments of the time of Sir David Lyndsay's play, "Ane Pleasant Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis", first performed in 1540.
ERB's event is one of a series of talks, workshops and community events that is part of a two-year research project on the re-staging of Sir David Lyndsay's play, supported by Historic Scotland, with funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and in conjunction with several universities in the UK including the University of Edinburgh. The performances of "Ane Pleasant Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis" and "Interlude", the lost first version of the play, will take place in Linlithgow and Stirling during the month of June.

The Renaissance Band with Polyhymnia Dancers and Edinburgh Early Dancers at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013
The 2013 Festival show is Thistles and Roses -
Showcasing music and dance from 1250-1650. Our 40th Fringe birthday celebrated with characteristic verve and good humour. Mainly Scottish and English music with excursions elsewhere. The thistles include some of our favourite striking, interesting or downright mad instrumental pieces, while there will be plenty of the beautiful melodic roses in which early music is so rich. Extra colour comes from historical dances. Many families of early instruments are used - softest to loudest, court to village green. Lively presentation and an opportunity to chat with the performers make this programme a uniquely attractive even.
Tickets from Peter Jones (address below), or at the door :: Adults 10 pounds; Concessions 8 pounds; Children at school or younger Free (up to four children per adult or concession; school parties by arrangement).
|Wednesday 7th August, 19:30||Thursday 8th August, 16:00||Friday 8th August, 16:00|
