Leeds Lunchtime Chamber Music - Relaxed Performance: Mishra

The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire, 3 Quarry Hill, Leeds LS2 7PD

Mishra – relaxed performance

Kate Griffin – banjo, vocals
Ford Collier – guitar, Irish whistle, tabla

This concert will last approximately 50 minutes.

Mishra are a fascinating global folk duo; with strong roots in UK folk, they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and is already bringing them awards recognition from only two years of performing. Led by Kate Griffin’s voice and inimitable clawhammer banjo and driven by Ford Collier’s continent-hopping instrumental skills (Indian tabla, African calabash, Irish whistle and guitar), they won Cambridge Folk Festival’s first ever Christian Raphael prize and in separate projects were both shortlisted for the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards.

Relaxed Performances allow members of the audience to move around freely, leave or enter the auditorium as needed, lights never go completely dark and sound effects are softened. These performances are open to all and are designed to welcome people with an autistic spectrum condition, learning disability, dementia or sensory and communication disorder.
