THE rude mechanicals
Present SONGS FROM SHAKESPEARE
THE RUDE MECHANICALS
The Rude Mechanicals use words penned by Shakespeare and put them to fresh, folk and classical inspired tunes which utilise guitar, percussion, violin and viola.
A version of this set has been performed on BBC Radio 3s ‘In Tune’ show to celebrate 400 years of William Shakespeare this year at The RSC’s The Other Place in Stratford alongside Gigspanner and Rufus Wainwright.
2017 sees the group expanding their repertoire to include other English poets and begin recording of a CD to be released in the Spring.
