Ridgeway Singers and Band are very much looking forward to performing to live audiences again their popular annual concerts leading up to Christmas, at four venues around the county.
This year the all Dorset-based programme will feature pieces from the manuscripts of Thomas Hardy (1840–1928) and Benjamin Rose (1796–1877), music by the Wareham-based composer William Knapp (1698–1796) and 19th-century carols from Bridport and Martinstown, as well as more recently composed songs in the style of the old bands. The concerts will also include readings and poetry by the Dorset writers Thomas Hardy and William Barnes (1801–86).
