Carbrooke Christmas concert

Last night Carbrooke villagers were treated to a fantastic concert by Chanters Jigge –  a husband and wife duo –  Malcolm and Elizabeth Ecclestone –  who specialise in a wide range of music.

As advertised the evening was a festive hot pot of carols, folk tunes and seasonal music from across the centuries played  and sung with ancient, traditional and modern instruments. There was plenty of opportunity for audience participation with the joining in of carols and the shaking of festive bells that were distributed through out the audience. During the interval there were the obligatory mince pies and mulled wine giving evening one the fuel to continue singing for the second half of the concert.

As well as singing and playing an amazing array of instruments Malcolm also gave the audience a great amount of background on  the music along with some very amusing anecdotes!
