Joglaresa
Songes of Sinne and Subversioun


St Alfege Church, Royal Greenwich




Joglaresa - coming of age in 2013 and 'bringing anarchy and sensuality back into medieval music' (because life can be just as low in Latin...).

In these times of sleaze, MPs' expenses, the fall of bankers from grace, and controversial wars in the Middle East, Joglaresa (long deemed to be early music's 'bit of rough') presents medieval songs of Illicit affairs and seductions, biting criticisms of bankers, politicians, bishops, and conflict in the Middle East... all delivered with Joglaresa’s inimitable energy, danger and, above all, FUN!


Tickets £12.00

She has toured the globe, appearing as a soloist with major chamber and symphony orchestras, and with artists such as Pinchas Zukerman, Sir James Galway, Joshua Bell, Maurice André, Gidon Kremer, Heinz Holliger, Claudio Abbado, and jazz icon Keith Jarrett.
