Iain Burnside
Artistic Director of the Ludlow English Song Weekend

Welcome to the Ludlow English Song Weekend.

There is nothing quite like the Weekend of English Song. Ludlow is the perfect home for this rich feast of music, performed by internationally acclaimed singers. Our Weekend includes return visits from star baritones Roderick Williams and Ashley Riches, while welcoming new faces: Louise Alder, Kitty Whately, Bethan Langford, Robin Tritschler, Nicky Spence and Gareth Byrnmor John. Iain Burnside has come up with another programme combining the familiar and the neglected, placing favourite songs next to exciting new repertoire. This year has a Transatlantic flavour, looking at musical connections between Britain and America. Whatever your musical tastes, you will be welcome in Ludlow – to hear music afresh and to make new friends.
