Will present a concert of acoustic world music at


Tania Opland and Mike Freeman have been touring the world together for over 25 years with a unique and eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary material from many cultures - songs in several languages, and acoustic music presented with wit and style and played on more instruments than any sane duo would travel with.
Featuring hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin, recorders, cittern, violin, Native American flute, ocarina, hurdy-gurdy, an assortment of percussion and whatever else they might have picked up on their travels, their shows are guaranteed to provide an evening of great music and entertainment for all, especially those seeking something a little off the beaten track.

Mike's irreverent sense of humour and Tania's stunning vocals provide the springboard for a rollercoaster ride across several continents and back again.

"Tania and Mike... are definitely a partnership made in heaven.
They are quite simply one of the most original and interesting
musical combinations you're ever likely to see!
Between them they weave a fascinating musical tapestry."
-Chester Festival, Kelsall, Cheshire, UK
