The People's String Foundation :
The People’s String Foundation are a 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra playing original scores of World, Gypsy and Classical styles, fronted by Ben Sutcliffe on virtuoso Violin.
The 'Res Publica' tour has two live musicians (Ben and co-founder Zaid Al-Rikabi) who will play over recorded projections of the full orchestra - Essentially touring an orchestra in a suitcase!
We call this the Virtual Orchestra.
The projections are mixed with cinematography and a narrative of a puppet - by Kneehigh Director Simon Harvey.

People's String Foundation
The Peoples String Foundation mix passionate theatrics with an urban gypsy sound. Led by Ben Sutcliffe (musical director for Rogue, Kneehigh and Bish Bash Bosh Theatre companies) whose virtuoso violin styles have landed him to play with the likes of The Levellers, The Stranglers, The Yardbirds and Gary Stringer from Reef.
Mixing artisan flavours with urban/world beats and a band that expands into a 24 piece orchestra, The People’s String Foundation are fast being recognised as the heavyweights of the South West.
As well as touring the festival and theatre circuits as a seven piece band they encompass a grass roots philosophy, working with the community and schools alike to promote local music and arts
