Edinburgh Renaissance Band at St Mark's
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The music, song and dance of the Medieval and Renaissance worlds is brought to life by the citys famous early music group. A dozen musicians play a huge range of period instruments including shawms, cornetts, sackbuts, nakers, crumhorns, viols, fiddles, recorders, bells, bagpipes, rackets and a serpent. The historically-costumed trio Polyhymnia perform lively Renaissance dances including a choreographed sword-fight. The show is introduced by Murray Campbell, whose entertaining presentation provides a show that is a truly joyous experience, suitable for all ages, newcomers and regulars alike. www.edinburghrenaissanceband.com
