One for the diaries as this will be a one off gig! An exceptional line up of folk musicians come together around Shakespeare.
The Company of Players
The Company of Players is a crazy idea Jess had about a year ago. Inspired by the likes of The Full English, The Elizabethan Sessions and Songs for the Voiceless, Jess set about creating her own folk 'supergroup' made up of some of the best emerging folk artists on the UK scene.
Said The Maiden
Kim Lowings and The Greenwood
The aim of the group is to write, record and perform a body of brand new material based on the works of William Shakespeare, to commemorate him on the 400th anniversary of his death. The Company of Players will be spending a week in April (2-9) together in a house in Belper, writing and rehearsing, creating new, exciting works and collaborations together, then recording it and taking it on the road.
