All smiles after a performance of Vision at Stroud Green Festival 2014, Niamh Cusack, Clare Norburn, Kaisa Pulkkinnen and Yvonne Eddy

Blurring the boundaries of what a concert is, The Telling bring you intimate “concert-theatre” pieces to transport you back to the Middle Ages through ballads, music, poetry and story-telling. Their vision is to create a new kind of concert experience for the 21st century, while encapsulating the spirit and music of the past.

Formed in 2009 to create their first project: A Medieval Christmas, the group in various formats now has five programmes including three which combine narrative and drama with a concert. The group have performed nearly every year at Brighton Early Music Festival since 2010, as well as engagements at Stroud Green Festival in North London, The Workshop Series, Lewes and Fabrica Gallery.  They have performed extracts of their Unsung Heroine programme on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
