Nuns & Roses

Songs of nuns, songs of roses, ballads of illicit love and villainous seducers, subversive medieval re- workings of hymns by errant monks, and lots of noses thumbed at authority - all delivered with Joglaresa's inimitable energy, irrepressible cheeriness, rebellion and, above all, FUN!

This programme can also be acoustic, beautiful and atmospheric for churches, music societies and early music/classical music audiences, or 'electro-medieval' for arts centres and outdoor festivals.
