Wonderful Cornish Wedding!

A couple of weeks ago we spent a marvellous day at Trerice, a National Trust property near Newquay in Cornwall. Performing for Emily and Barnaby’s very special day was a joy! I think they liked us too “Dear Merrie Noyse Minstrels, Barney and I (and I think the whole wedding party) would like to say a really big thank you for Saturday. We could not have asked for a music group more suited to our tastes and hopes for our wedding. We have had so many lovely comments from our guests who thought that the teaming of you and Peterkin was wonderful. Some have even gone as far as to say it was the best wedding they had ever been to! For us, it was perfect and we loved meeting you! It is nice to know that you are not only great musicians but lovely people too. :)”

Peterkin the Jester was the icing on the cake – not literally I add! What a fab event it was! Here is to a long and happy marriage!

A fab year ends on a high well, several in fact!

What a fantastic year we have had! Many gigs new and old favourites, weddings, schools and Barry and I have had the great delight to be session musicians for fab folk duo Skinner & T’Witch (www.skinnerandtwitch.com) on two of their great numbers.

2018 is looking just as exciting, with new venues in the pipeline, recordings planned, concerts to prepare and more! Visit our diary page to find out if we are near you soon!

Well what a lovely, hot weekend we had at Tatton! Wonderful parkland, hall and festival. Great to see our friends Marinella again and many thank to Mike for the fantastic photos!

Another year ended….

Well, where has 2015 gone! Is it only me that thinks is has zoomed by in a flash?!? What a lovely programme of gigs we have had the great fortune to perform at, new friends made and old ones are still there! Check out our Gigs Diary for where we are in 2016!

New CD Coming Soon!

Sue, Baz and Rod have been working hard in the studio recording our 3rd CD, “The Crescent and The Cross – Music from the time of the Crusades”. We are excited about this one as it also includes readings from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, reflecting the beautiful art, music and poetry produced during this most violent of historic periods. Keep an eye out – it will be launched at Chetwynd and Tewkesbury Medieval  fairs in July and available from this site and other options soon after.
