2009 Noon Hour Concert Series: Playford Players
Thursday, September 10, 2009
What: The Downtown Guelph Business Association presents its 2009 Noon Hour Concert Series featuring the Playford Players
Where: St. George's Square, Guelph
When: Friday, September 11 @ 12pm
Why: Philip Corke (guitar) & Roland Packer (hammer dulcime) have performed with a blend of traditional and contemporary instrumental music at a wide range of events throughout Southern Ontario since 1982.
Having met while studying composition at Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music, we began writing eclectic arrangements of traditional English, Irish and Appalachian tunes for hammer dulcimer and guitar.
The Playford Players' sound, expanded with the addition of a mandolin, bowed psaltery and Irish bouzouki, and by composing original material, complements their traditional repertoire. The resulting blend? Folk, pop, jazz and classical styles
How much: Free!
