The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments

Wednesday, 08 January 2014

Founded by Clare Salaman in 2010, the Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments perform folk songs and dances, Medieval, Renaissance and Classical music from the 13th to the 18th centuries, and newly composed works on instruments including hurdy gurdy, viola d’amore, viola da gamba and harpsichord. The group takes its inspiration from La Société des Instruments Anciens, who performed ‘easy listening’ Baroque music in Paris in the early 1900s.

From January this year, the Society collaborate with dancer Steven Player to present ‘Nine Daies Wonder’, a new performance series based on the dancing tour of Will Kemp, a leading actor in Shakespeare’s company who in 1600 danced his way from London to Norwich in nine days.
