Oxfolk presents: Switched-on Playford

Oxfolk presents: Switched-on Playford

Oxfolk presents an online dance with Chris Green - Switched-On Playford + caller Bob Morgan
We're delighted to support this event, which is promoted by our friends at Oxfolk.

Chris Green (Renaissance cittern and keyboards) spends much of his musical life in folk, theatre and early music. If you've watched series 1 and 2 of BBC TV's Poldark you'll have heard him playing in the posh dance scenes. You may also have danced to him with Playford Liberation Front. However, with Switched-On Playford he reimagines and revoices 17th-century English country dance music for the 21st century. Chris takes tunes from John Playford’s English Dancing Master and uses a blend of electronic, modern and early instruments to create music that is vibrant and new but also deeply rooted in and respectful of its source.

Caller Bob Morgan has a broad repertoire of Playford, ceilidh and contra dances, and regularly appears at festivals and dances series across England. He's great at adapting and explaining, and he'll be making sure that there's something for everyone, whether you're dancing with your housemates, family or teddy bear.

This event will take place LIVE in Zoom.

Details of how to access the event will be in your ticket confirmation. Please make sure you check your spam or junk email folders if you don't receive it straight away.


We are offering three ticket types for this event:
- Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
- Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
- Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason.

You can purchase whichever ticket you like; you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.

We are trialling this ticket system to help make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
