Electric Voices will be presenting the Oxford Waits in their show "Love's Holyday" at the Electric Theatre in Guildford on Weds, 14th October 2009 at 8pm.

The Oxford Waits wear the costumes of the period and perform on contemporary instruments including shawm, bagpipes, cittern, lute and fiddle. They deliver "the best pop music of the Restoration" with all the zest of a contemporary folk band. As one reviewer put it, "their randy but good-natured songs and broadside ballads are thankfully sung in natural voices with minimal 'early music' affectation".

This concert coincides with the release of their latest album, "Love's Holyday", a romp through the 17th-century seasons, beginning and ending with Christmas. The show features carols, street ballads and broadsides, dance tunes, airs and rounds of the age interspersed with readings from contemporaneous poets and diarists - all of which are dispatched briskly and with gusto without any 'classical music' preciousness - on the contrary The Oxford Waits are justly famous for leaning towards the rumbustuous and delightfully salacious.

If you're interested in the type of music that captivated Samuel Pepys and saw him regularly hurrying to buy armfuls of broadside ballads, and enjoy the bawdy, this concert will not disappoint.

Tickets can also be obtained online from the Electric Theatre

Refresh. This is in just under a week (ie next Wednesday). If you're within hailing distance of Guildford, and have not seen the Oxford Waits, I can strongly recommend them for an evening's entertainment. (Worth it just for the frisson of seeing Tim Healy shake his hair free to show that it's real, if nothing else!!!) Tickets are still available as above.
