When Icicles Hang

The Countryside in Winter

Carols, Songs, Tunes & Stories

A costume performance with instruments of Thomas Hardy’s time

Frosty farmsteads, winter journeys, old superstitions and seasonal celebrations – there’s nothing like a chilly day in the country to make you appreciate the pleasures of a warm fireside, a glass of something, and a rousing song or a mysterious story. This is the Mellstock Band’s new show for Christmas 2017, with their distinctive blend of voices and instruments, conjuring up the spirit and the sounds of the rural past.

Like all their shows, this combines traditional music for voices, fiddle, serpent, clarinet and concertina with spoken extracts from Hardy & his contemporaries, performed in rural “Sunday-best” costume of the early nineteenth century.
