Cloudehill is privileged to present
Evergreen Ensemble 'Tree of Strings'
Cloudehill is privileged to present Evergreen Ensemble, a Twilight recital in the Cloudehill Green Theatre. Evergreen Ensemble pays homage to Baroque and folk music of Ireland.
Playing Irish music feels like storytelling, but with notes instead of words. Melodies carve out the shapes of hillsides and glens, streams and forests, and rhythms place figures into this melodic landscape to dance, sing, rejoice or mourn. With roots stretching back through the centuries, traditional Irish tunes were also part of Europe’s baroque period. Come and discover the beautiful compositions and arrangements of Ireland’s folk and baroque repertoire played on modern and period instruments by Evergreen Ensemble.

Regulars to our twilight events know to come early. We recommend arriving 5pm, perhaps 5.30. Bring a picnic and bottle of wine, low fold-up (beach) chairs & spare warm clothing (just in case). Over the years we have found low evening light is the loveliest time to explore the gardens and a twilight performance in the theatre makes the occasion very special.
