In a special new collaboration, lutenist Žak Ozmo and period instrument ensemble L’Avventura partner up with one of the best known proponents of Scottish folk music, the folk band Old Blind Dogs. Together they present brand new adaptations of music from Orpheus Caledonius, the 18th century collection of Scottish music packed with history, romance, artistry and fun, with musical subjects ranging from war to love.

Featuring special guest singer Siobhan Miller - two-time winner of the ‘Scots Singer of the Year’ award - this collaboration mixes the sounds of 18th century high art music and folk, featuring musical instruments that range from bowed baroque strings, recorders, lutes, cittern, and baroque guitar, to pipes, whistles, fiddles, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and an array of percussion instruments: hauntingly beautiful melodies to lively, toe-tapping dances.

Generously supported by Petworth Festival Patrons and Friends
