Red Priest makes a welcome return to Welwyn Garden City after a sell-out concert a few years ago. They are the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the Cirque du Soleil. Critics have described the ensemble as “visionary and heretical,” “outrageous yet compulsive,” “wholly irreverent and highly enlightened,” “completely wild and deeply imaginative,” with a “red-hot wicked sense of humour” and a “break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music.” We can all look forward to a fun, engaging and brilliant evening!
