Bands presents musicians in period costume for
every occasion, from concert performance to weddings, ceilidhs,
historical banquets, birthday and anniversary parties, fairs,
festivals and much more besides.
Whether you are looking for a solo
instrumentalist, a trio or a seven-piece band your needs will
be met at this site. The superbly costumed musicians play
a wealth of traditional instruments that include lute, cittern,
pipe and tabor, harpsichord, serpent, harp, concertina and
Lively dance tunes, wedding processionals,
lusty rounds and tranquil airs... all form part of a repertoire
extending from the Mediaeval, Tudor, Stuart and 18th-century
eras, to Victorian times.
Musicians represented on this site
have provided music for film and TV work, as well as sound
tracking for BBC radio productions.
Here too are links to instrument-makers,
costume specialists, educational resources, recordings, places
of interest, re-enactors and living history groups.
