Will Pound's A Day Will Come on Saturday 9th May 2020
Join acclaimed harmonica and melodeon player Will Pound on a musical journey across the European Union, celebrating both the diversity and common ground of its traditional music and song.
From the lively Swedish polska to the upbeat Italian tarantella, the lilt of the Irish jig, to buoyant French bourées, relentless rachenistas from Bulgaria and the rip-roaring Spanish jota – these tunes have travelled, evolved and merged as Europeans have enjoyed the strength, joy and freedom of unity.
Will, together with Polish poet, Bohdan Piasecki, and a live band featuring Jenn Butterworth (Songs of Separation, Kinnaris Quintet), Jude Rees (Jim Moray, RSC, Pilgrims Way), John Parker (Nizlopi) and Patsy Reid (Breabach), will take you on a heart-warming journey, exploring the beautiful and uplifting sounds of a continent, and sharing the stories of those whose lives have been affected by the politics of division.
An accompanying album featuring this new ensemble, alongside a host of guest musicians, will be available online and on tour from May 2020.
