Medieval Christmas Music

The Grinnigogs bring a wonderful Medieval  flavour to any Christmas event – not only are they amazing musicians, but they are marvelous entertainers, with their love of tall tales, amusing anecdotes and comic verse.

Dressed in full medieval costume and playing Hurdy-Gurdy and Hammer Dulcimer (and on occasions, Medieval bagpipes and shawms!), The Grinnigogs play a cornucopia of popular Christmas tunes from the Middle Ages to add a touch of seasonal sparkle.

The Grinnigogs can perform indoors or outdoors, solo or together, from a fixed spot, or wandering, and if you would like to add more performers, storytellers, fortune tellers, or any other street entertainment to your event, all you have to do is ask, we have been entertaining for over 20 years and have many unusual contacts!

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.
