ARKangel – Lunchtime Recital – Cider with Rosie

Friday 17 May, 12:30pm-1:30pm
Fowey Parish Church
Entry Free - Donations to the Festival Welcome

Capturing Laurie Lee’s richly descriptive language in a powerful narrative, coloured with a feast of music, ARKangel’s Cider with Rosie explores Laurie’s much-loved memoir of childhood in an age of social change; the damp, cramped Cotswold cottage, the rural poverty following the First World War, an explosion of doves, and his never to be forgotten encounter with Rosie Burdock. This wonderful recital is interwoven with haunting traditional song and the music of Vaughan Williams, John Ireland, Elgar, Debussy and Holst.

ARKangel’s Laurie Lee recitals will be touring as part of the Arts Council funded 2024/25 Rural Touring programme, Live and Local. Their Lullaby of Andalusia was premièred at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall as the scene setter for Paco Peña’s Requiem Flamenco and Histoire du Tango was performed to a sell-out crowd at the prestigious Three Choirs Festival.

Free event. Donations to the Festival welcome.
