Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon concerts by June Tabor offer a unique opportunity to experience this great interpreter of song in the atmospheric setting of Stokesay Court’s Great Hall.

Known primarily for her authoritative and memorable versions of traditional material, June has, throughout her career, been just as effective in more modern and contemporary repertoire. What matters to her is that she sings songs to which she is drawn strongly, which tell meaningful stories and conjure strong images.

The concerts will be far from identical, and appropriately for Stokesay, will include songs evoking the 1914-18 war, about which June Tabor has sung for forty years.

Accompaniment and instrumental colour will be provided by musicians Andy Cutting and Mark Emerson, playing piano, viola, accordion and violin.
