HG on Woman's Hour this morning

Postby cranker » Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:28 pm

Not that I'm a regular listener, but a friend alerted me to the fact that there was to be a little gurdy action on Radio 4 this morning.

Here's the blurb:

Stevie Wishart is a composer, performer and improviser who explores medieval and contemporary extremes in her music. She has studied medieval performance techniques and ancient instruments such as the hurdy gurdy, and composes for early music ensembles including her own group Sinfonye. She often combines this with electronic sounds and computer music systems to create electrifying contemporary performances. She talks to Jenni about her cutting edge music, and performs on the hurdy gurdy live in studio.

And here's a link to listen again via Realplayer:
