Blurring the boundaries of what a concert is, distinctive medieval group The Telling brings you intimate “concert-theatre” pieces to transport you back to the Middle Ages through ballads, music, poetry and story-telling. The Telling has a growing reputation for intimate, staged concerts to bring medieval music off the page and reach wider audiences. We create a different concert experience, combining ballads and upbeat instrumental dances with narrative, readings or film. We often perform some numbers while moving around the audience and using lighting and/or candlelight.
