Experimental folk trio in Swalcliffe

Savage Prunes
Savage Prunes

A young musical trio will be coming to Swalcliffe at the beginnng of next month.

The Savage Prunes come to St Peter and St Paul’s Church as the first of a series of concerts organised by Swalcliffe Concerts.

The trio will be playing new compositions on traditional instruments.

Callum Armstrong is on the bagpipes and recorders, while George Pasca plays the cello and John-Francis Goodacre performs with the violin.

The trio make use of their different musical backgrounds and the expressive capabilities of their instruments to create a polyphonic and melody-driven sound that is fresh and exciting.

Organisers of the concert said their original compositions blur stylistic boundaries, combining the rhythm and drive of traditional dance music, the delicate playfulness of baroque, and the irresistible energy of modern pop.

The aim of these concerts is to raise funds in support of the church of St Peter and St Paul and other community projects in the Oxfordshire village of Swalcliffe.

The concert takes place art 7.30pm. Tickets for the concert cost between £11 and £13.50.
