Artsreach Presents: Serious Kitchen with “The Whispering Road”.

Tickets from Hazel Darneley 01935 83347. Adults£8.00; U18’s £6.00; Family £25.00; Youth Club members free. Bar and Refreshments available .

The Whispering Road is a stunning symbiosis of storytelling and music, featuring two entwined Scandinavian stories of hope in the darkness, of two strangers bound by a ring and of the one who could not love. There are, of course, trolls. Brought to life with accompaniment of traditional Scandinavian music on the Swedish nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle) , kohorn, accordian, guitar and three-part close harmony singing. Serious kitchen draws on the rich heritage of Scandinavian myths to bring you a show blending Nick Hennessy’s spellbinding storytelling with Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer’s renowned musicianship and their collective wealth of experience of Nordic traditional folk culture.
