August 19th: Barefoot Baroque @ An Sanctoir, Ballydehob 8pm

This summer sees the return of a unique series of concerts in West Cork by Barefoot Baroque, a trio featuring Katy Salvidge on baroque recorder and harp, Justin Grounds on baroque violin and Tess Leak on cello. The trio began their annual tour of baroque concerts in informal spaces in 2016, bringing the vibrancy and richness of 17th century music to audiences across the islands and towns of West Cork.

This year they are joined by renowned Swedish Alto Camilla Griehsel, a singer who calls Schull her home, and has collaborated with the musicians in many different guises over the past years. With Camilla lending her exquisite voice to arias by Handel, Bach and Purcell, as well as some of the lesser known experimental pieces of the era, the concerts promise to enliven and inspire. All welcome, entry by donation.
