Theatre Ballads

Horse & Bamboo Theatre Co.

Friday 20th October



Home - Theatre 2

Seated Venue (reserved) 


with - Grace Petrie

The ballad is a story - a story in song. 


Horse + Bamboo depict songs of a great fight, a broken contract and a female smuggler. Each is a historic ballad arranged and performed live alongside puppetry and simple illustrations, drawing out the tales before your eyes. 


Featuring a phenomenal line-up of folk musicians: Kate Locksley (voice and narrative presentation), Bryony Griffith (fiddle, viola, voice and piano), Ewan McLennan (guitar and voice) and John Kirkpatrick (melodeon, accordion and voice). 


A combination of live music, puppetry and projection, this captivating show will be somewhere between an evening at the theatre and a music gig.


Jointly commissioned by EFDSS, The Met in Bury and Colston Hall in Bristol and funded by PRS for Music Foundation
