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!
