The People’s String Foundation are an army of bohemians and vagabonds who represent 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 and the Minack Youth Theatre) with co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi at the core. The Acorn Theatre is host to a rare duo performance which is sure to set your heart racing, get your toes tapping and warm the soul with 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
