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 place for this rich feast of music performed by internationally acclaimed artists. In 2018 we ask the question: how English is English Song? Challenging our own self-definition, we offer a Celtic-flavoured weekend exploring connections between Britain and Ireland. Songs, choral pieces, chamber music, talks, discussions and film – all the ingredients that make up the Ludlow English Song Weekend will be there. New works and young composers will feature again, as will outstanding performers from both sides of the Irish Sea. Take a look at our What’s On section where you’ll see our programme and artists. A more detailed programme will be available soon. Please put April 6-8 in your diaries so we can welcome you to Ludlow, and to a very special weekend.
