The People’s String Foundation presents Res Publica

The People’s String Foundation is an army of bohemians and vagabonds hailing from the grass roots of British music culture, mixing World, Classical and urban styles in anarchic embroilment.

This Cornish band is fronted by virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe (Director of Music for Rogue Theatre, Kneehigh Theatre and Minack Theatre) with co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi at the core.

Ben and Zaid are packing their 32 piece orchestra into a suitcase and taking them on tour, playing live over a recorded projection of the full orchestra. Directed by Kneehigh Theatre’s Simon Harvey, this is sure to set your heart racing and your toes tapping – a great start to 2019!

“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year’s Mercury Music Prize.” Ralph McTell.
