After their recent foray into the world of gypsy music with their classical-chart-topping Baroque Bohemians project, Red Priest return to their origins with a stunning programme of truly baroque classics, arranged and performed with their trademark energy, virtuosity and (in the best baroque sense) madness!


Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the
press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and the
Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music
critics as “visionary and heretical”, “outrageous yet compulsive”, “wholly irreverent
and highly enlightened”, “completely wild and deeply imaginative”, with a “red-hot
wicked sense of humour” and a “break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to
early music”. Founded in 1997, and named after the red-headed priest, Antonio Vivaldi, Red Priest has given over 1000 sell-out concerts in many of the world’s most prestigious festivals.
