'Res Publica' - Peoples String Foundation
Join us for a night with the People's String Foundation like no other.
With a bit of artistic wizardry, Ben and Zaid have packed the orchestra into a suitcase and will be playing live with the 'Virtual Orchestra', delivering an exciting, immersive show using music, puppetry, art, cinematography, animation and projection.
The People's String Foundation are an army of bohemians and vagabonds hailing from the grass roots of British music culture; Mixing world, Classical and urban styles in anarchic embroilment. This Cornish band is fronted by the virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe (Director Of Music for Rogue Theatre, Kneehigh Theatre, etc ) with co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi at the core.
This Autumn Ben and Zaid are packing their 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra into a suitcase and taking the “Virtual Orchestra” on tour as a live duo, with their newest album release “Res Publica”.
This music is sure to set your heart racing, get your toes tapping, and warm the soul with the people’s spirit and grafter’s hearts.
“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. The entire piece is fresh and youthfully enthusiastic with clear production values on a classical scale. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year's Mercury prize." - Ralph McTell.
