“a bewildering array of early instruments ... played with sensitivity and verve... Early music dull? Not with these guys on stage!” [Cholsey 1000 Festival review]
Skeleton Crew is an Early Music band of Oxford musicians, performing medieval, renaissance and baroque music. Our instruments include recorders, baroque flute, lute, theorbo, 'cello, harp and harpsichord. We aim to show our modern audiences how enjoyable Early Music can be, and we have fun exploring a range of pieces from several centuries and countries. We plan our programmes for a range of events around Oxfordshire, for public and private occasions, including for charity. We have CDs for sale and videos to watch.
Forthcoming Public Concert:
Lunchtime (1.00 - 1.45pm) Monday 21st October 2019 at St. Michael at the Northgate in Oxford.
We will be playing trio sonatas from the Baroque period, works by Bach, Boismortier, Castello, Pepusch, Oswald and Morel.
Admission Free, with a retiring collection in aid of Save The Rhino.

“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]
