    Maddy Prior & The Carnival Band - UK Tour

    Various, UK

    Tossed together in 1984 on a 'let's see what we come up with' basis for a Yuletide Radio 2 broadcast, what began as a one-off session in a village hall in Cumbria has endured for over twenty years and has become something of a tradition in its own right!

    Fortunately it shows little danger of fossilization as both parties keep coming up with new ideas. The 2001 collaboration and fifth album, 'Gold Frankincense and Myrrh' introduced a good deal of Arabic and African-influenced music into the equation. The next project explored the lives of eighteenth century female soldiers and the ballads they inspired. For what comes after that, keep watching this space!
