In Hoary Winter's Night

An Anglo-Irish collaboration - ancient and spellbinding Christmas song ringing with echoes of winter pagan festivities. Re-workings of well-known carols such as The Coventry Carol, Wexford Carols and The Gower Wassail, plus many lesser-known songs such as Lullay mi Childe, Cauld Blaws the Wind and Cold, Haily, Windy Night.

"Get in festive mood with these brilliant musicians, whose infectious enthusiasm and peerless skill will leave wanting to dance and sing all the way home!" Spitalfields Festival

"One marked highlight at St. John’s Smith Square’s was Joglaresa - it was packed with punters, for Belinda Sykes’s spirited medieval ensemble" The Independent


"I was blown away by their charm and originality " The Scotsman
