Red Priest will be bringing wit, drama and truly swashbuckling panache to music by Vivaldi, Handel and other baroque masters, in their concert in Salts Mill, Saltaire, on Friday 13th March.

Red Priest is like no other classical group you have ever heard. The group creates music with vivid drama, often at terrific speed and with tremendous skill and timing. Piers Adams acts as presenter, and all four members, dressed in buccaneer crimson and black outfits, play entirely from memory. RED PRIEST is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and Cirque du Soleil!

Founded in 1997, and named after the flame-haired priest, Antonio Vivaldi, Red Priest has given several hundred concerts in many of the world’s most prestigious festivals, including the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Moscow December Nights Festival, Schwetzingen Festival, Prague Spring Festival, Bermuda Festival, and in most European countries, Japan, Australia, and throughout North and Central America. The group has been the subject of hour-long TV profiles for NHK (Japan) and ITV (UK) - the latter for the prestigious South Bank Show in 2005, which documented the launch of the Red Hot Baroque Show, an electrifying marriage of old music with the latest light and video technology.
