The Grinnigogs at Harewood House Medieval Faire

We played at the Harewood House Medieval Faire as a four piece band – with our Medieval Dancing Master  – and a fine time was had by all – Steve Haswell called the medieval dances and the combination of Hudy-Gurdy, Bagpipes (Quentin Budworth) , Hammer Dulcimer (Amanda Lowe) , Violin (Jill Fisher) and Percussion (Zebedee Budworth) prooved irresistible to the dancers – calling medieval and renaissance dances from all over Europe the band played tunes like the Horses Branle, The Bear Dance, Branle de Bourgogne and La ride and the dancers participated in some lively exciting period dances to authentic medieval music – a great Yorkshire knees up!

It was a lovely evening with a superb PA and lights provide by Chris Broadwell and Tim Wall of CATV who did a fantastic job for the band.

 

Hog Roasts

A lot of people are thinking about organising celebrations and events with the main food being a hog roast as medieval musicians we love playing at Hog Roasts and can even provide a medieval music for dancing if required. Although we are based in East Yorkshire near Beverley we are more than happy to travel all over the UK to play for Hog Roasts , Medieval Events, Festivals  and parties.
