Historical Musicians

About Us

"You guys are awesome!"

Bill Barclay, Director of Music at Shakespeare's Globe

Formed in 2010, we have been supplying music and musicians to the heritage sector, film and TV for a decade. Based in the UK, we cover a variety of historical periods including:

  • Medieval

  • Tudor/Jacobean

  • Civil War

  • 18th Century

  • Regency

  • Victorian/Edwardian

  • Great War

We are equally at home performing to a huge audience from a stage or a small and intimate ad-hoc audience in the open air. We play a variety of stringed, woodwind and percussion instruments and have high-quality historically-accurate costumes.

Previous clients include English Heritage, The National Trust, The British Library and Warwick Castle.
