Copyright © 2011-2017 Ancestral Voices

Ancestral Voices presents a unique blend of history and music. Through a combination of historical narrative, contemporary accounts, visual images and period music, Ancestral Voices brings the past to the present.

We offer a number of illustrated talks interspersed with music. We present historical narrative accompanied by images. The live music which accompanies these programmes is rich and varied, and makes full use of our musical talents on an array of period instruments. These are suitable for daytime or evening meetings of clubs, societies and educational groups. Our presentations have also been popular for fund-raising events.

Ancestral Voices offers several fifty-minute presentations and also some which are longer in length which incorporate an interval. Details of all of these are on our “short presentations” and ”long programmes” pages.

Ancestral Voices is currently taking bookings for 2017 and 2018. As well as our advance bookings, we are happy to try to accommodate last minute requests. Our fees are available on application and we would be happy to answer any fquestions you might have. Please contact Sarah by telephone or email us.  We look forward to hearing from you.
