The '18th-century party people', Lady Georgianna, are back with a new website and some dates in the Midlands.
If you don't know of them, they're a costumed trio (comprising singer, Allegra, harpsichordist Signora Storace, and Isabella Wrighten on cello) who blend popular songs of the period with light-hearted readings. Check out their Flickr stream for photos and above for the new video of Take Heed. The ladies make their own costumes (the famous 'cleavage-enhancing gowns') and they have a few tips for budding dresmakers on their site.
They're bringing their Ladies of Misrule programme (a risqué look at pleasure gardens) to St Columba’s Church, Moseley on October 24th and Lichfield Guildhall on December 6th, and they present a spooky insight into the first gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto, at St Columba’s Church on November 28th, for which the audience is encouraged to come in masks and costumes.
