Sound of the Sirens

Sound of the Sirens 

Saturday 29th January 

£10 

7.30pm

Sound of the Sirens are a singer-songwriting duo based in Exeter, comprising of Abbe Martin & Hannah Wood. Honing their craft over the past decade, Martin & Wood have cemented themselves as firm favourites not only on the Westcountry scene, but nationally, and internationally too. Their status, and fast-growing fan-base is not only testament to the pair’s prowess as songwriters and musicians, but as people too. Without being pigeonholed into any stereotypical genre, the instrumentation of the band is vast, and varied. Martin (stage right) plays acoustic and high-strung (Nashville tuning) guitar, mandolin, and bass drum, while partner in crime Wood (stage left) plays acoustic and electric guitar, tambourine, snare drum, and the piano

With tracks like these, it’s hardly surprising that the duo have received high-praise from the likes of Chris Evans, who invited them to perform alongside U2 and Take That on TFI Friday last year”. – Culturefly

Knowing your Herod's

Knowing your Herod's 

Saturday 19th February 

10am - 3pm 

£10

We have all heard of the Massacre of the Innocents by King Herod. But how did he become King of the Jews? Weren’t the Romans in charge? And how is he connected with the Herod who married his brother’s wife and put John the Baptist to death? And what can we usefully learn about the writing of Scripture and its message from all this?

St Mary's Singers

St Mary’s Singers

Saturday 5th March

7.30pm

£10

Founded in 1985 by David Cheetham, and now directed by Andrew Wyatt, St Mary’s Singers exist primarily to sing the services at Truro Cathedral when the Cathedral Choir is on holiday. In addition, the forty-strong chamber choir performs concerts throughout the year. The choir has sung a liturgical Passion on Palm Sunday for several years. In services, concerts, weddings and other special events we have sung music, secular and sacred, from all centuries, medieval to present-day.

St Mary’s Singers have collaborated with the Rambert Dance Company, Monteverdi String Band, English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble and The Gesualdo Six and have been broadcast live on BBC Radio. We regularly commission works for the choir, and have recorded three CDs, All this Time this Song is Best, Salmow Kernewek (featuring the work of local composers) and, most recently, with Abbey Brass, A Ceremony of Psalms.
