Skeleton Crew -- Renaissance, medieval, baroque & folk music

“a bewildering array of early instruments ... played with sensitivity and verve... Early music dull? Not with these guys on stage!” [Cholsey 1000 Festival review]

About Skeleton Crew

Skeleton Crew is a group of amateur musicians performing medieval, renaissance and baroque music (so-called early music) on various instruments, including (depending on the repertoire) recorders, baroque flute, lute, theorbo, 'cello, baroque harp and harpsichord. We play for public and private occasions, and we are based in Oxford (UK). We have CDs for sale and videos to watch.

Forthcoming Public Concert:

Lunchtime (1.00 - 1.45pm) Monday 3rd June 2019 at St. Michael at the Northgate in Oxford.

We will be playing music from the French Baroque: Boismortier, 2 different Loeillets, Morel and De Visée.

Admission Free, with a retiring collection in aid of Asylum Welcome.

“a delightful evening of early music ... often played with quite blistering dexterity ... the programme offered a most satisfying balance between diversity and coherence” [Daily information review 2009]
