The People’s String Foundation
The People's String Foundation is 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 virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe (Director of Music for Rogue Theatre, Kneehigh Theatre and Minack Theatre) with co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi at the core.
Ben and Zaid are packing their 32 piece orchestra into a suitcase and taking them on tour, playing live over a recorded projection of the full orchestra.
Directed by Kneehigh Theatre’s Simon Harvey, this is sure to set your heart racing and your toes tapping – a great start to 2019!
"The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year's Mercury Music Prize." Ralph McTell.

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
