Tuned In London presents Memories of the Mayflower: a Song Cycle

Mid-July four hundred (and one!) years ago, the Mayflower ship set out to sail the Atlantic.

The voyagers, both religious separatists and fairer-fortune seekers, did not reach land until more than nine weeks later.

The vessel's master and crew were Rotherhithe men.

This duo performance follows the premiere of this specially commissioned music last October and sets the scene as we slip into the shoes of those migrating adventurers, whose arrival on American shores had such an impact on the indigenous people already there and on those who were to follow.

Watch the trailer for ‘One Voice, One Cello and a Mad Belgian’

‘One Voice, One Cello & A Mad Belgian’ is a unique collaboration between two singer songwriters, British cellist Rupert Gillett and Belgian soprano saxophonist and melodeon player Jennifer El Gammal.

On sale will be the new CD of the 2020 live premiere, just launched on 29 May.

“It’s specifically this mix of genres that is so irresistible, along with the church's acoustics and the public's participation. An original album which keeps on getting better the more you listen to it." Le Soir (translated from the French).

Graham Taylor will also be at the concert signing his book, The Mayflower In Britain, which he is kindly offering at a special discounted price for Tuned In London gig-goers.

As seating is restricted, advance booking is strongly recommended.
