Sixteenth century folk music played live will echo around Haddon Hall’s banqueting hall this Friday, April 10.

The music will be performed by the group Piva, who play a wide range of authentic period instruments such as hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, curtals, violin and recorders.

Jane Moulder, Piva musician, said: “It’s one of the privileges of being in Piva that we get to play in some amazing places and Haddon really is rather special. “The fact that so much of its late medieval and Tudor architecture has survived is rare and the period of the house is absolutely right for the music we play.”

The concert starts at 8pm. Tickets £17.50 must be booked in advance. Contact www.haddonhall.co.uk or 01629 810912 (office hours).
