Biography

The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments was founded in 2010 to explore a repertoire that ranges from folk songs and earthy dances to high art music from the 18th century and before, as well as newly composed pieces. The Society's performers are all leaders in the fields of historical performance and traditional music with years of performing and recording experience. They play on a plethora of unusual and extraordinary instruments. Since its inception, the group has performed many concerts, released two CDs and given several radio broadcasts including a live concert performance of their programme, 'The Ministry of Angels', broadcast on 'The Early Music Show' on BBC Radio 3.

'Anyone who has experienced an SSAI performance can testify as to the impressive visual and aural spectacle that they produce, and their vibrant, carefree virtuosity was as enthralling as ever.' Early Music Today
