Three Weeks Fringe Award 2017 Citation
We've been sending reviewers to see our final award winners for a good few years now, but they have been performing at the Fringe for much longer than that - longer than we've been covering the festival, and this is our 22nd year! But this band of musicians have brought shows to the Festival for a hugely impressive forty-five years, and they stand out from all the other traditional, classical and contemporary music shows because of their rather magnificent USP: evoking the sounds of Mediaeval and Renaissance Europe, they play instruments from a bygone age. Have you ever heard music from shawms, cornetts, sackbuts, nakers, crumhorns, rackets and serpents? If not, make a date to see this excellent ensemble in 2018. Our tenth award goes to The Edinburgh Renaissance Band.

A Dance of Love and War from 16th Century Italy: a dance workshop
Carlops Village Hall EH26 9NH
Sunday 21st August 2016, 10:00 - 17:00

Dances and music based on battles and the arts of war were very popular in the 15th and 16th Centuries. The workshop will look at a Battle dance from a 16th Century Tuscan source. It appears to have been intended as a performance piece for 6 or more dancers but is accessible to dancers with no previous historical dance experience - although those with a background in early dance can use their knowledge to extend the basic choreography. The original choreographer chose steps to mimic swordsmen, pikemen and dressage horses at different parts of the dance. The music follows a similar pattern to other "battle" pieces. Those with a particular interest will be able to explore how dance steps and movements changed from the 15th to the 16th century and how they laid the foundations for the later Baroque style (and eventually the classical ballet). The workshop will conclude with a full re-enactment with live music using instruments of the period. Wear something comfortable or period dress if you have appropriate costumes.

The workshop is led by Robin Benie - former chair and honorary life member of the historical dance umbrella group the "Early Dance Circle". He has worked regularly with the Edinburgh Renaissance Band, directs the dance groups Passamezzo and Polyhymnia, and is guest teacher for a number of historical dance groups across the UK.

Mr Shakespeare Dances: A dance workshop on early dance
Carlops Village Hall EH26 9NH
Sunday 23rd August 2015, 10:30 - 17:00

Dance first became a public performance art in the 16th Century and Shakespeare's audience would have been familiar with the dance meanings of "cutting a fine caper" and "Measure for Measure". If you listen, to or play, the music of the period you will know of Galliards and Pavanes which were of course actually dance music. Have you ever wondered how a Galliard is performed or even a Pavane or a Brawl?

These dances provide clues to the origins of classical ballet and you discover movements in the dance manuals of the late 16th century that evolve into steps such as the arabesque and entrechat.

The workshop is suitable for everyone, and provides an opportunity to participate in some early dances. It will be of interest to actors, directors, dancers, teachers, professionals and non-professionals, dancers and non-dancers, in fact anyone who would like to try something a little bit different and learn more about the period.

At the end of the afternoon there will be a short informal performance of pieces learnt in the workshop, together with some demonstration dances by members of Polyhymnia.

The workshop is led by Robin Benie - former chair and hon. life member of the historical dance umbrella group the "Early Dance Circle". He has worked regularly with the Edinburgh Renaissance Band, directs the dance groups Passamezzo and Polyhymnia, and is guest teacher for a number of historical dance groups across the UK.

The 2013 Festival show was 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.
