The Miller's Tale

When: Tuesday 4th July 2017 - 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Where: Winterbourne Medieval Barn, Church Lane, Winterbourne BS36 1SE

A musical comedy of Chaucer's "14th Century Carry-On", told as never before! Starring Pete Morton as the evergreen song and dance man, The Miller.

Acclaimed folk singer Pete Morton is a songwriter and performer with a wealth of great songs and stage presence – this unique one-man theatre show is just one strand in his multi-faceted performing career.

‘You’ve taken a gem of a story and re-worked it so brilliantly for a contemporary audience, you’ve blown the dust off Chaucer’s language and made us hear it afresh, you’ve made us laugh, sing, listen … you made me cry with laughter. You were brilliant!’  Vivien Ellis of the Dufay Collective, the international ensemble Sinfonye and Dartington Music Summer School.

The Guardian described him as “Not only original, but a revelation”.

Pete has been touring the folk circuits of Europe, North America and beyond since the late eighties. With his energetic and passionate style of performance, he brings together his love of the tradition with contemporary social commentary and writes “formidable songs that move the soul” (FolkWords).

Drinks will be available to purchase before the performance and during the interval.
