GIG: (14/12/18) Res Publica – People’s String Foundation Virtual Orchestra

Theatre musicians, composers and the founders of the bohemian 32 piece gypsy orchestra The People’s String Foundation Ben Sutcliffe and Zaid Al-Rikabi perform here with the virtual addition of their orchestra projected on a huge screen behind them.

“The People’s String Foundation is one of the great wonders of the West. I first heard the music of Ben and Zaid in Kneehigh’s production of FUP in 2017: stonking, earthy, organic, delicate, and barn-storming. This led me to their album “The Lost Dreams Of Gilgamesh” which is a joyous and many-splendoured thing. The upcoming “Puppetree” tour by The People’s String Foundation is an impassioned and bold project to bring a larger than life production to poor and/or remote venues. This work, of such big heartedness and brilliance, is desperately needed!” Conductor and Composer – Charles Hazlewood.

“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. The entire piece is fresh and youthfully enthusiastic with clear production values on a classical scale. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year’s Mercury prize.” Ralph McTell.

Philosophy in Pubs

We are excited to be hosting Cornwall’s first Philosophy in Pubs group. Why not come and enjoy our local Community of Enquiry.

No academic or philosophical background is necessary, only a passion for enquiry. Just turn up and enjoy.

Contact Kerry on 07477040745 or visit our FACEBOOK PAGE.

Philosophy in Pubs (PIPs) is a grass roots community organisation promoting and practicing community philosophy in the UK and worldwide. Anyone can attend and anyone can propose a topic for discussion. A visit to a PIPs enquiry costs nothing more than the price of a drink and a small voluntary donation. Respect for others and their opinions are a fundamental requirement of the group, as it encourages people to put forward their views without fear of ridicule or intimidation.
