Description

Together once more, presenting an hour of pensive pleasure and glorious musical diversion in an intimate, informal setting. Fresh from her 10-year tenure as a popular and accessible Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy brings a selection of much-loved favourites interspersed with stimulating and provocative new work and musical interludes from the irrepressible and effervescent multi-instrumentalist John Sampson. With virtuosic skill and idiosyncratic humour, he conducts a tour of music from the medieval to the modern on an array of period instruments.
