Revels directors Megan Henderson and Paddy Swanson lead this special one-hour program featuring Perkins’ talented singers with Revels’ adult and children’s choruses, a children’s morris team, and a great band of musicians. Enjoy music and songs from America and around the world, plus a wild visit from that ancient harbinger of spring, the Padstow ‘obby ‘oss, all the way from Cornwall, England!
A Celebration of Spring is an annual collaborative event designed to demonstrate the power of traditional music, song and ritual to bridge cultures and eliminate boundaries.
