Chris Green’s Switched-on Playford Concert

November 19 at 2:00 pm3:00 pm GMT

Chris Green’s Switched-on Playford was inspired by Wendy Carlos’ seminal 1968 recording Switched-on Bach. It reimagines and revoices 17th and 18th century English country dances using a blend of electronic, modern and early instruments to create music that is vibrant and new but also deeply rooted in and respectful of its source.

Please note: seating is limited and will only be available for those with pre-booked tickets.  We expect this event to be very popular.  At times access to Blackwell Hall may be controlled to enable all visitors to enjoy the event.


Chris Green is a musician and composer. He is one half of modern-day balladeers GreenMatthews and a regular musician for Shakespeare’s Globe. He also plays with the Warleggan Village Band, who will be performing for The Dancing Master’s Playford Ball in January 2024.
