Meet the World's Most Extraordinary Baroque Quartet!

Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music critics as ‘visionary and heretical’, ‘outrageous yet compulsive’, ‘wholly irreverent and highly enlightened’, ‘completely wild and deeply imaginative’, with a ‘red-hot wicked sense of humour’ and a ‘break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music’.... read on

"For sheer technical wizardry, charismatic showmanship and expressive devilment, Red Priest is in a exhilarating class of it’s own."
BBC Music Magazine

'SON ET LUMIERE' - PIERS ADAMS recorder, music by CHRIS GANDER

Sallis Benny Theatre Brighton, UK

This exciting new multi media work including music and soundscape by Chris Gander and graphics by John Baker, will take you on a voyage of discovery through colour sound, the seasons, emotions and elements and all that unites them and us.
Recorder player Piers Adams, famed for his displays of technical wizardry, lyrical textures and theatricality, will front a battery of percussion played by the hugely versatile and skilful Adam Bushell and Tom Norrell.
The work, with a beautiful underlay of evocative sound, will trace this unity with captivating graphics supported by an entrancing musical score.

    Well, I don't know which gig Nick was at last night in King's Place... I saw a virtuosic and inspiring performance. And who knew such things could be done with a recorder? Loved it.

    Feeble concert tonight at King's Place from an apparently venerable novelty act, though judging by the number of smug titters from the generally elderly audience, my reaction wasn't typical. Perhaps the second half was better -- I escaped at the first opportunity.

    Hello Red Priest! I am a pupil at Penglais School in Aberystwyth and I was lucky enough to attend a workshop this week in Aberaeron School and watch you perform. I really wanted to thank you for playing; it was incredible, lively, expressive, fun – just amazing. You are all so talented and have very impressive improvisation skills! I particularly enjoyed your version of Spring aswell. Thank you so much, it was an absolute pleasure watching you yesterday, and I am looking forward to composing for you!
