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

    I went to see my second Red Priest concert at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on 11 February and I was not disappointed. The four of you are outstanding musicians. You bring baroque music alive in a modern and lively way and your enthusiasm is incredible. Looking forward to the concerts in the Gower and Tenby later in the year :D

    Ohmygod, seriously you're amazing, thanks for giving me something to show my friends when they tell me that recorders suck, and that I have no life because I go to classical music concerts. Your concert in November was amazing! I finally know what I want to do with my life - be a professional recorder player!:agree::laugh::D

    The concert on Friday night was absolutely out of this world. Piers' skill and musicanship is incredible, I have to say that he is one of the most gifted muscians I have ever had the pleasure of listening to live. Such fun and enthusiasm. How on earth you played 2 types of recorder whose fingering, I'm guessing is different, is beyond me. Thank you Red Priest, I cannot wait to see another concert, hope you'll come to South Wales some time soon. :D

    Saw Red Priest at York University a couple of days ago and am still recovering! Wonderful playing from all four members - great rapport with the audience. Highlight for me was Angela East's playing of solo Bach, but everything was superb. So glad my wife bought me the tickets for a birthday treat. If you get the chance to see this wonderful quartet, don't miss it.

    I too was at Halesworth last night, and I wanted to say thank you for a marvellous evening. It was, in fact, the most wonderful music experience I've had for years. Thank you so much.

    Went to the concert, Pirates of Baroque, at The Cut Halesworth, last night, 13th October. First time we've heard the quartet. A memorable performance and I loved David Wright's performance of Handel on the harpsichord. A great show to watch as well as listen too.

    :D Red Priest are inspiring. Extraordinary music paired with extraordinary musicians. Your music is amazing! Above all, this outstanding music can be universally appreciated by everyone, of any age. It is exciting and fun whilst still maintaing the conventions of the Baroque era. I'm 14 - and of course I have Red Priest on my ipod. Also, recorders are underated. :)

    Just heard the second half of your Rockport festival performance on the radio, and I was blown away! Red Priest is one of the finest musical ensembles I've ever heard, in any genre. I'm telling all my friends to go discover you for themselves right away! I hope I can find the first half of the concert still online somewhere. I also hope you play for younger audiences frequently, because you would be the perfect ambassadors to rekindle interest and appreciation for classical music among the youth who will be its future. Keep up the extraordinary work!!! You're the best!

    Brilliantly addictive. Four Seasons on my i-pod, ham sandwich in my hand - that's what I call Baroque 'n' Roll.
