As has already been mentioned on the blog a while back, I have been working with the award-winning Liverpool University Drama Society and historian/harpist Dr Sarah Peverley on a re-imagination of Christina Rossetti’s dark fairy tale ‘Goblin Market’. The play will feature both live and recorded music composed and performed by myself and Sarah. The score includes harp, Balalaika and an eerie woodland soundscape – we have set out to capture the otherworldly plane of director Zoe Wiles’ vision.
The big news is that, prior to showing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from the 12th to the 17th of August, there will be a preview at The Kazimier Garden, Liverpool, and it’s free! Not only that, the event will feature more live music from myself and Dr Peverley as well as arts and crafts and fruit cocktails. If you just happen to be in or around Liverpool or the North-West of the UK on the 30th of July, it’s going to be an evening to remember.
Performances are at 6pm and 9pm. Check out the Facebook event here.
