The Medieval Minstrels - Medieval Minstrels
These medieval minstrels are a trio of two musicians and a dancer with a passion for 12th to 17th century European music and dance and are the core members of a large medieval music and dance-theatre company.
They can be booked as soloists or as a duo or larger group. Between them they play an exotic array of authentic early instruments to a very high standard these include: Hurdy Gurdy, Bagpipes, Gothic Harp, Recorders, Pipe and Tabor, Pipe and Salterio, Cittern, Citole, Percussion.
For added impact and to make your event unique and dramatic, their dancer can be booked to appear disguised as various masked, mythical, dancing creatures which include a beautiful unicorn, a woodwose, and a dragon on stilts. He can also appear as a dashing Spanish Tudor courtier and can perform absolutely mesmerising solo dances. He can lead your party in a wild 'historical ceilidh' should you so desire. The trio can also perform and process as medieval masked devils whilst playing bagpipes, hurdy gurdy and percussion, which makes a very arresting spectacle.
The members each have over fifteen years of experience performing, touring, and teaching both in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia and are considered to be amongst the best in their fields. They have made several appearances on film soundtracks, starred in C5 programme 'Time Warp Wedding' and have been played on Radio 3 many times.

“The act went beyond expectations. The performers read the audience and engaged with them, such as discussing their instruments, how they were made etc. Medieval costumes superb. Very punctual and ready before required time. Booking straight forward. There was excellent communication prior to event.

“Were you happy with the act? Yes, and more so - the performers entered into the spirit event fully.

“The musicians were perfect professionals, pleasant to work with and mega talented. Perfectly able to entertain and educate and as mentioned before worked the event to perfection. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone planning a period function. Many thanks for all your help. I’ll know who to approach if I need any assistance with entertainment in the future!
