Haste to the Wedding is a celebration of love and marriage from times gone by. The Gregory Walkers will lead an ensemble of diverse musicians from the county of Galway in a programme which will include love songs, wedding vows, dance tunes, and songs of merriment. With music spanning the middle ages, renaissance and baroque periods, this promises to be a concert filled with joy, happiness and lots of love.
The concert is the culmination of Galway Early Music’s Early Music for Young Musicians workshops and Adult Ensemble workshops with the Gregory Walkers, which took place in April and May.
