Ludlow English Song Weekend's theme for 2018 is Irish culture and the music it has inspired. It will feature new works, young composers, and outstanding performers from both sides of the Irish Sea. The weekend highlights Songs, choral pieces, chamber music, talks, discussions and film.
For the first time the weekend features Carolyn Dobbin and Gavan Ring. Actor Fiona Shaw will be leading a music and poetry evening inspired by the writing of Yeats and Joyce. Renowned Irish mezzo, Ann Murray will be working with students in a song masterclass.
