Join early music group Joglaresa for a romp through the Middle Ages where the knights are villainous, the dancers seductive, and even the lullabies are groovy. Medieval song can be full of surprises – often written out of the textbooks, women too were professional musicians, composers and poets. Alongside anonymous repertoire, Joglaresa perform songs by the Arab-Andalusian princess Wallada, the trobairitz Bieiris de Romans, the Byzantine abbess Kassia, plus compositions and arrangements of medieval song by modern minstrels Sianed Jones and Belinda Sykes, all delivered with the group’s inimitable energy and cheeriness.
