A Brief History of Music

The latest show from acclaimed musicians Chris Green and Sophie Matthews

takes in 600 years of musical history in 90 minutes!

Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.

Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes (not to mention jokes!) Chris and

Sophie paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the

familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and

the commonplace.

Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as hurdy-gurdy,

rauschpfeife and vihuela (and that’s just the first 100 years!) ‘A Brief History of

Music‘ uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from

which you won’t want to return!
