Purcell’s Polyphonic Party combine their shared love of Purcell, Playford, Baroque and the Nordic Noir.

Take one harpsichord, one viola d’amore, one nyckelharpa. Stir occasionally with bouzouki and accordion. Once mixed allow to simmer gently together on stage for around 3 hours. Then enjoy some beautifully served up dance music.

With a wide range of experience from Playford and social dance to ceilidh and contra, Purcell’s Polyphonic Party has a unique sound, combining the beauty and style of the baroque era with raw foot-tapping dance energy. You can be assured that a dance evening has plenty of variety.
