About this event

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 to those with pre-booked tickets. Standing room will be available within the safe capacity level for the space. 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 safely.


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.
