An innovative celebration of the year in folk dance.
Through the Seasons gives audiences a chance to experience a journey through the year of folk dance through an original artistic collaboration of exceptional musicianship and spellbinding storytelling.
The event showcases stunning arrangements of traditional dance tunes and songs, bringing their innovative and playful style to life through both music, image and spoken word, with all the joy of a summer’s festival to the thrill of a winter’s fireside rapper sword-dance. Joining Will on tour is Debs Newbold, storyteller and writer, Benji Kirkpatrick on bouzouki, banjo, mandolin and vocals and Ross Grant (Inlay) on violin and vocals, with audio-visual design by David Parker.
