Four friends come together having not performed in public since March to perform an eclectic mix of music spanning 500 years. The concert will start in the renaissance and weave through the years right up to the present day. It really will have something for everyone. The concert will have a limited live audience and be live-streamed via The Riverhouse Barn YouTube channel.
