Maddy Prior & The Carnival Band with Carols & Capers
Festive favourites such as The Holly and the Ivy and I Saw Three Ships rub shoulders with secular carols like The Boar's Head and dance tunes like Old Joe Clark.

Following the hugely popular 2012 Christmas tour with the Carnival band, a year of touring with Steeleye Span, and as a trio with Giles Lewin and Hannah James, Folk icon Maddy Prior is now once again joining up with the Carnival Band for this coming Festive Season for their unique celebratory show “Carols & Capers”. And like their previous seasonal excursions, this one sees them put their unique stamp on a range of familiar (and not-so-familiar) festive material, whilst also exploring some new and exotic directions. Together they will mix renaissance, modern and ethnic instruments with a refreshing cavalier attitude and plenty of humour putting their inimitable stamps on a range of familiar and not-so-familiar festive fare. This will guarantee to be a Christmas Party to remember.

The Carnival Band are 5 Musical Explorers, 5 voices, 25 instruments, 5 dozen styles of music and 5 hundred fresh ideas for music making, combining music from across the centuries with sounds from around the world in an irreverently joyous mix!

What began as a one-off session in a village hall in Cumbria has endured for over twenty years and has become something of a tradition in its own right with regular tours and five albums released.

“Maddy’s voice is clear as a bell. It actually sounds as if there’s a celebration going on” THE GUARDIAN
“A truly superb pack of musicians” DIRTY LINEN (USA)
“If you haven’t seen them before you’re in for a treat” OXFORD MAIL
