ACOUSTIC TRIANGLE 2005 TOUR
CHRISTCHURCH, COLDHARBOUR, SURREY
The tiny village of Coldharbour, near Dorking, has been the home of
several notable artists and musicians. French impressionist Lucien
Pissarro lived there during the First World War, Ralph Vaughan Williams
wrote some of his best music whilst living there, and exiled Polish poet
Marian Hemar lived there until his death in 1972, and is buried in the
churchyard. Oliver Reed used to live nearby and local resident Virginia
McKenna lives in the village and is a leading light for cultural events
in the church. Percussionist Bill Bruford is also a near-neighbour.
The building is 19th Century and contains some beautiful Victorian
stained glass windows. The church was extensively restored in 2000/2001
and is becoming a favourite place for classical concerts and poetry
readings. Acoustic Triangle's concert will introduce improvised music of
this kind to this lovely church for the first time.
Special thanks to Graham Mytton for making this concert possible.
