Maddy Prior and Friends – The Quest Tour

Maddy Prior visits Rosslyn Chapel on Wednesday 25th Oct.
Box Office: 01865 241 717

Over a remarkable career spanning over 3 decades, Maddy Prior MBE has become widely recognised as the voice of English folk music. 

An unsurpassed interpreter of traditional song, Maddy is also a songwriter of great vision, whose solo work has stretched the boundaries in the form of extended song cycles that combine her favourite themes of history, mythology and tradition.

Joined once again by long-time collaborators Nick Holland (keyboards) and Troy Donockley (uillean pipes, guitars, cittern and whistle), The Quest Tour will however represent an astounding new twist in Maddy’s story. Fans around the world will be invited to join her, the musicians and crew through a series of web streams, including behind the scenes footage and exclusive live performances.

Yet this is more than just a meeting of folk music, reality tv and the web. Given that the tour will visit such historical locations as Glastonbury, Tintagel and culminates with a show at Rosslyn Chapel, the spectre of the Holy Grail will loom large over proceedings. A series of experts will be on hand to provide answers to viewers’ questions on all aspects of this fascinating phenomenon, [we are informed that the Grand Lodge of Scotland has not been approached to provide a Masonic expert – Ed.] Arthur and questing in general; a chance for the public to discover the truth behind the Hollywood gloss.

Viewers will also be invited to make their own contributions to the experience by representing their own personal quests through words and visuals. All contributors displayed on the web will have their names entered into a cauldron, from which a winner will be drawn on the last night of the tour, receiving a special goblet their own personal grail.

Join us for this incredible meeting of the past, present and future at
