We were sold out for this event which was a great success!
A Beginner’s Guide to Birds through the Seasons drew on the rich traditions of birds in songs and in folklore. A Mischief of Magpies mixed old and new ballads, and ancient songs with new arrangements, offered on some extraordinary instruments and interwoven with spoken words and ornithological poetry. Together the Magpies weaved a nest of bright, shiny and surprising things which happened to have caught their eyes and ears.
A Mischief of Magpies is a collaboration between multi-musicians Nick Peed and Philip Robinson of “A Bold Set of Ruffians” (amongst many other bands), and Pippa Marriott, writer, reader and twitcher.
