Chanter’s Jigge invite you to share their delight in good tunes, lively entertainment and jolly company. They cross the centuries with colourful performances of music from around Europe and occasionally more exotic places.
They perform on a unique array of ancient, traditional and modern instruments
Tunes from all times
Songs for all seasons
hurdy-gurdy – recorders – guitar – ukulele – keyboard – accordion – whistles – crumhorns – bagpipes – small pipes – saxophones – chalumeux – curtal – rauschpfeife and vocals (and anything else that might be around)
Malcolm and Elizabeth Ecclestone have performed extensively in the UK and abroad. They were founder directors of the Norwich Waits, The Radio Dance Band and Manhattan Magic Jazz Band and Jazz Duo. They have made numerous broadcast appearances.
Folk tunes are blended with early and traditional music.
Medieval dances rub shoulders with Victorian ballads, traditional chorus songs with foot tapping jigs.
They play catchy tunes and new arrangements of old favourites.
And we are delighted that they will be performing at Northampton Food Festival, Barleylands Food Festival, Hyde End Food Festival and Sandringham Food Festival!
We are very excited to confirm that ‘The Craft Beer Boys’ will be demonstrating mainstage at all our food festivals 2017.
Brad and Jonny are founders of the Craft Beer Channel, a youtube channel with a huge global following dedicated to great beer and good food. They travel the world finding the world’s best brews and the secrets behind them, then finding food matches or even cooking with them. They met while working in Jamie Oliver’s digital team and bonded over their love of beer and burgers, and have been drinking buddies ever since. They are now two of the country’s foremost experts in beer, travelling the world to make films, speak at conferences and try to project an air of sobriety against all the odds.
Our lineup for Northampton Food Festival is almost there – just a few more to be confirmed. But we are pleased to announce that Northampton Food Festival 2017 will feature:
on the Saturday
Matt Tebutt and Chris Bavin

Valentine Warner and Dean Edwards
