#refugeeweek2019

Inspired by Dowland’s melancholic song Flow my tears, and the heart-breaking stories of refugees which are never far from the news, Grammy nominated vocal ensemble Stile Antico and Dartington Arts, commissioned poet Peter Oswald to create texts for Dowland’s instrumental Lachrimae pavans.

Between the pavans, London-based Syrian musician Rihab Azar intersperses partly improvised music for oud. The programme also includes a new work by Giles Swayne and performances by Woven Gold, a remarkable choir of refugees and asylum seekers.

Will Varley

Described recently by Donovan as “The next generation” and counting the likes of Billy Bragg, Tim Minchin and Frank Turner amongst his fans, it seems the rambling songwriter who cut his teeth haunting the open mics of south London is finally getting the attention he deserves. Don’t miss him at the Round Chapel this autumn.
