The Artisans: an exciting new medieval and Renaissance band

The Artisans

"Thank you very much for the lovely concert you gave us last night. It was varied and interesting music and your performance was great! We were very impressed with how well you sang and played (by heart!) and how much you knew about the music. We learned a lot about medieval music."
Ahilya Noone, Milngavie Music Club

"Your musicianship is undeniably top drawer and your presentation and choice of repertoire was engaging, uplifting and enjoyable."
Jill Tomalin, Totnes Early Music Society

“The Artisans dust off medieval music, bringing it to vibrant life and connecting directly with audiences through their sheer inventiveness and infectious enjoyment of the music.”
Clare Norburn, Co-Artistic Director, Brighton Early Music Festival

'The Artisans' showed themselves to be the equal of any early music group performing today; their recital was impeccable, both in technique and musicianship, and also in their relaxed, informative style. Audience response was universally positive and enthusiastic: "the most delightful early music experience ever; exquisite playing and singing of a very well-chosen programme."

"...stunningly beautiful - I'm not normally an early music fan, but this was fantastic."
Nora Heard, Co-ordinator of Music Recitals at Christ Church Spitalfields

"The Artisans are no ordinary medieval ensemble. Instead of taking us back in time, they bring the music of the past effortlessly into the present day, with a youthful openness, enthusiasm and rhythm that captivated our visitors this year.

With their remarkable array of instruments, wonderful singing and willingness to talk to all ages of visitor, they turned our Family Day into one of the most successful events of the year."   
 Jonathan Sargant, Music Organiser, Knole House
