2009 • Before the Wolf – La Banda Europa

The composer Jim Sutherland dreamt of creating this band. I introduced him to director Hilary Westlake and the IN SITU network and together, through the support of Big in Falkirk and Newcastle Gateshead, we created Before the Wolf, a show that appeared in those towns and subsequently in Marseilles.

La Banda Europa comprises of hurdy-gurdies from France and Hungary, nyckelharpas from Sweden, Armenian duduks, Serbian brass instruments, Turkish drums, the bagpipes of six nations and much more.
