Friends of the Eversden Churches
St Mary’s Church in Great Eversden is now open and looks and sounds magnificent.
The Friends of the Eversden Churches hope over the coming months to present a programme of events and performances that will make full use of this beautiful space.
So on Friday 13th July at 7.30pm we are welcoming Edwardian performance practice experts and world renowned musicians Patricia Hammond and Matt Redman.
They will take us on a journey through the freewheeling world of 1910s music, with a focus on songs that were popular in the First World War. Offering an unparalleled insight into everyday concerns on the home front, these songs illustrate the humour and reflection that kept up morale as well as the impact of war on families and friends at home.
Matt plays a host of instruments from the time, including a zither banjo that went to the Western Front, a 1911 Gibson guitar, and bouzouki, mandolin, accordion and piano. In songs that are well known and lesser-known, Patricia’s hauntingly beautiful voice and Matt’s instruments provide a unique insight into what life was like during the First World War.
Note: You may not get away without joining in for a few choruses.
