The Horsemen of the Apocalypse

The Hay Concert

Virtual venue: Starlight Stage

Ben Salfield (lutar), Jon Salfield (flamenco guitar), Simon Stanton (percussion), Rowan Nightingale (acoustic bass). The internationally regarded Salfield brothers’ ensemble makes a welcome return to Hay, following trio and duo concerts in 2014. Their high-octane repertoire features an exciting fusion of original works that tap into the Middle Eastern heritage of the lute and the driving rhythms of the flamenco guitar, combined with a myriad original ideas from the two virtuosi. The colour and power of Simon Stanton’s Latin, North African and Middle Eastern percussion, and the recent addition of Rowan Nightingale’s acoustic bass, create new harmonies, an added impetus, and a new dimension to the ensemble’s sound.
